Altering your appearance to gain some sort of acceptance or security does not work. That emptiness you feel doesn’t go away just because you throw on a little make-up or present yourself a certain way. Love YOU. Love yourself enough to realize that you don’t have to be someone you aren’t to be happy. It may feel good for the moment but that is NOT genuine happiness. Genuine happiness is knowing self-worth. Once you understand how valuable you truly are..nothing else matters. Beauty is golden. You are golden. Believe that.
Even when you find it hardest to love yourself I’ll still be here. I’ll care for you, talk with you, listen to you, wrap my arms around, sit with you, share stories with you, laugh with you, be strong for you..I will love you. Love you beyond your very understanding. When you start to crack I promise to catch the pieces and remind you just how valuable you really are. I believe that if I show you genuine compassion-genuine love, then maybe you’ll try it for yourself, for you. Be that beautiful being you were always created to be. Allow that to happen and begin to recognize that you were something amazing all along. You’re amazing to me.
This is What Freedom Feels Like
It’s not a mistake.

When they tell you that all of the something you are is nothing, stand up. When they turn their backs on you, stand up. When they try to push you over the edge, stand up. When they break their promises, stand up. When you’re ready, move forward. And even though it hurts, love them and watch the beauty unfold.
