When people tell you you're not good enough...

Tuesday, May 7, 2013

Or when they say things about you that hurt your feelings. When they tell you to change. When they try to tell you what you do or do not deserve. When they spread rumors about you. When that guy doesn't like you because you're not "his type." When you don't fit in because your hair isn't right or you don't wear the right brand of clothes, or you can't play a certain sport. When you feel like everything is falling apart and no one is on your side...

Look at yourself in the mirror and say, NO I am not those things that you say about me. I am fine just the way I am. I don't need to change for you or for anyone else. I am my own person and that's how I want it to be. No, I do deserve this, I deserve it more than anyone because I've worked hard for this and I have shed many tears over it and I have put my whole heart and soul into it. You don't know me, and you haven't even tried to get to know me so stop spreading those lies about me. Just stop. And so what if I'm not your type!? What are types anyway? Someday I will find a guy that will make my heart stop, who will put neverending butterflies in my stomach, who will brush the hair out of my face when I look exceptionally disheveled. Who will talk to me when I'm upset who will love me no matter what. Who won't care about types. And you know what I like my hair this way and I'll wear the clothes I want to wear and sports don't even matter in the long run. And finally, you tell the world that you will conquer it. That you will be happy and that the world is on your side. And that you love life and life will love you back and you can do anything good.

That's what you say to the faces of the people that tell you you're not good enough. Because you are good. You are gooder than good. You are amazing. You are stardust. You are golden. That is who you are and don't let anyone...EVER get you down because you are so worth it.

That's all.
