You there. Yes you. I see you. Maybe we don’t always see eye to eye and maybe we do. It doesn’t matter, because you are you. You are unique and special, and I’m not just saying that to be nice. You bring something to the table that I can’t, and I think that is beautiful.
YOU are beautiful.
Don’t let someone tell you anything other than that you are flat out amazing. Don’t let someone define your worth by the color of your skin, the shape of your body, or the type of personality you have.
You are perfectly made, big feet, freckles, a crooked nose and all. There is nothing wrong with you that needs to be changed or made less obvious.
If you try to blend into the background, the world misses out on you. We need your perspective and your experiences. You have no idea how many lives you are changing.
You shine. If you have allowed someone to dim your light, well, turn it back up! Take back your place in this world.
Those people who have treated or judged you unfairly have probably been through something they can’t explain. It doesn’t make it right, but you can make it right by turning the other cheek. You can show them how to love and forgive. Kindness when they don’t deserve it will teach them so much better than hurling angry words that they do deserve.
I know some days you think the world is against you. You assume everyone feels the way that one nasty person feels. That couldn’t be further than the truth. There are always going to be unkind people in the world, but I believe there are so many more who are good and loving. Find them and be one of them.
Whenever you think there is nothing redeeming about yourself, remember that that is a lie. You are you, and no one can take that from you. You are perfectly imperfect, as we all are. Be proud of your scars-the ones people can see and the ones on your heart. They helped make you who you are today and they are what make you beautiful. Never change for someone!
Even if I have never met you, I see you. You are beautiful just the way you are.
