I think most of us struggle or have struggled with self-confidence at some point in our lives.
It always breaks my heart to hear people that I love put themselves down. Some have told me they have a hard time even looking in the mirror they feel so down about themselves.
Whether it be mental or physical, we are too hard on ourselves.
If you've ever been in this position, I wrote this letter to help remind you how wonderful you are. I hope it helps you learn to love yourself, and to find peace and acceptance in all that you are.
I also hope it reminds you that your not alone in feeling this way, and that it doesn't have to be like this.
Take a deep breath and read this letter to yourself:
You are great, and everything about you is perfect. You are an amazing human being, and you are just the way you’re supposed to be.
You have great features, an amazing personality, and a heart that shines.
You bring joy into people's lives without even realizing it. You've changed people's lives for the better.
You have a great laugh, and a beautiful smile. Be sure to use it every day.
You give great advice and are insightful. You are wise, and offer things to this world that no one else can.
I know you've been hurt, I know you have scars, and I know you feel pain. This is all a part of what makes you beautiful.
You've fought battles - some you have won, some you may feel like you have lost, some are not over yet. But they all serve you a purpose, as you serve a purpose to this world and the people in it.
Trust me when I say: You are perfect. All of you.
Now, the key is to believe me.
And because you are here, reading this, being you, and taking the time to reflect on how wonderful you are, you are the highlight of my week!
Thank you for being you!
