And when you finally find someone to love, I hope you find someone who you are completely comfortable being naked around. I hope you find someone who never makes you feel small or embarrassed or unhappy in any way about the way you look and feel.
When you look in the mirror and feel sad about the way you look, I pray that the person you have fallen in love with reminds you that no matter what you think, you are beautiful in every way you could possibly be to them. That there is nothing they would change about you for the world.
I hope that someone is the kind of person who touches your soul tenderly as much as they have your body because they know how beautifully you shine from the inside, and they appreciate that about you more and more every single day.
I hope they tell you how beautiful you are when you least expect it.
I hope you find someone who says that to you even when you have just rolled out of bed in the morning and feel disheveled with yesterday night still on your skin. Someone who thinks you’re gorgeous even with the messiest hair and in your oldest clothes. Someone who never wants you to turn the lights out because they think you are so damned beautiful, they need to see every part of you that they are touching. Someone who makes you feel like your stretch marks are what tigers wear with pride, the parts you hide away just give them more to love and your scars are a magical map to a past that makes you the amazing person you are today.
I really hope you find that, and they help you love your body so much more because that, that is what you truly deserve.
