To The Girl Who is Struggling To Get Through It

Whatever it is…

I know these upcoming months are always hard but here’s a much-needed reminder of what I need you to do for yourself.

All I need is for you to be strong enough for yourself. It doesn’t matter what others think is strong, all that matters is what you think of yourself. You have to love yourself. You have to love yourself on the days when you refuse to look at every mirror you pass. You have to love yourself on the days when you can’t fit into your old jeans. You have to love yourself before you try to love others. No, I don’t mean you have to love yourself before anyone else will love you because believe me they will love you regardless but it won’t matter to you anyway. So, learn to love yourself and all the things you’ve been too scared to love. You have to love yourself enough to let them love you and let them in. You have to love yourself enough to stop building walls. I hope you learn to love yourself even when they disappear without a word…it’s really not you. I know, you know, how strong you are but remember that you don’t have to be strong all the time. Let others do the work if they want to. Stop thinking you have to save everyone because you don’t. Do not forget to do what you loved to do. I don’t know how long it’s been since you remember what you were put on this earth to do but remember to do it, over and over again because you are great at it. 

Go after the dream because at one point all of this was more than you could ever dream of.

You are a warrior and even though it feels like any little thing could break you, nothing has so far.

Remember that.

This is your life, go out there and be who you need to be… who you were meant to be.
