What Every Tough Girl Needs To Hear Right Now

One last thing, love, some people won’t understand your strength. Don’t change for them. There may come a time when someone that matters says something quite hurtful to you. To me it came from someone who meant a lot to me and it hurt. It still hurts. But you want to know something? From one proud, tough girl to another, I survived and it made me love myself so much more. I’m enough. You’re enough.

So, my dear partner in crime, you’re toughness makes you who you are. Accept you, please. Don’t be too hard on yourself; you’ll get plenty of shit from other people in your life. Be your own ally. Don’t be afraid to open up, but if you can’t, don’t feel like there’s something wrong with you. Love yourself first. And continue to be strong because that makes you, you. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
