You are Perfect

You are perfect. You are beautiful. You are unique. You are everything that you should be. You are brave. You are strong. You have courage like I have never seen before. There is nothing wrong with you. You are beautiful in your own way. Everyone makes mistakes, that's normal, it's what makes you human. You don't need to live in fear of what other people think. It's even been proven that people don't think about you half as much as you think they do. People are too bothered about themselves to care about what you are doing.

There is no one else on this earth like you. You are one of a kind. No one else will ever be like you. Why be a copy of someone else when you can be an original you? Embrace your own style. Embrace who you are.

It doesn't matter what you have been through in life. Whether you have been betrayed, cheated on, spent years next to someone toxic or if you have been bullied. This just means that you have been hurt by other people's actions and that isn't a reflection on you, it's a reflection of them. But the thing is, you're alive, you're living, not one of these things destroyed you. Here you are, standing strong, fighting through the pain. You found the strength inside yourself that you didn't even know you had, and fought through the hard times. You are stronger than you think. All of those times you have doubted yourself, and here you are standing strong.

You are someone with a lot of potential, you are someone who can take on the world. You have the strength and courage to reach for the stars. This is your life, and no body can stop you from living it. You are allowed to live your life, give yourself permission to be happy and curious.

You are determined. You are motivated. You have pushed through to get this far. You are your own hero, you are a winner, a survivor.

One day you will look back and think, why did I let these silly things get to me? Why didn't I just live my life?

Whatever you have been through in life, you are never too damaged to pick up the pieces and start again. Start slowly. Start at your own pace. You deserve to be happy.

You are perfect.
