I wish there were enough words to tell you how beautiful you are.
I wish my energy, calm and loving, would reach through these words and penetrate your soul.
I wish you would believe me when I tell you – YOU are enough.
I want to tell you earnestly to let go. Let go of the anger, the resentment. Let go of the pain. It truly isn’t worth it.
I want to tell you to take a moment to love. Love yourself. Look in the mirror and say this, “you-are so awesome. So beautiful!” And believe yourself!
Don’t hate the scars, they boldly tell all the battles you’ve survived.
Don’t hate the fat, or the bones, or the hair, or the toes. Defy society. There is no model. You are you. Ten toes, five finger, one kidney, no spleen! Whatever. It’s yours. Own it.
The government can take your house.
The ex can take your stuff.
But NO ONE can take away the love for yourself. Your love doesn’t depend on anyone.
So when I tell you – you are beautiful! Will you believe me? Will you look in the mirror tonight, discard everyone else’s thoughts and opinions, and smile.
YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!
