I am going to give out some advice that I myself need to hear right along with anyone else.
You. Are. Enough.
I don’t care about your weight, your gender, or your sexuality. I don’t care if you’re competitive, sensitive, outgoing, or prefer to be alone. Whoever you are and whatever qualities you possess, you are enough.
I am sitting here in my bed crying as I write this because life can be tough and you have to find out who you are and know its truth. If you don’t know its truth, people will get to you with their words and it will bring you down. It will confuse you. It will make you second guess who you are. But if you are aware of yourself, if you know yourself – they can’t define you.
Trust yourself. Trust yourself enough to know that if someone is spewing words of unkindness at you (or hurting you with their actions), you know it is coming from a place of pain in their hearts and has nothing to do with you. Get angry, get sad, get funky, and then come back to that place of compassion and acceptance, when you are ready. Hurt people hurt people. Feel it, let it float away, and remember who you are. They can’t touch you. You got this.
Let that spunky spirit fly.
