Dear you,

Everything is going to be okay. How do I know this? I know this because you're strong enough to get through whatever is happening right now. You have the power to say no, say no to whatever is holding you back or pulling down. It might seem easier said than done, and it won't happen overnight. No matter how much you want it to. But, I know you can do it.

It may take time, it may take a little effort but it will all be worth it. You just have to believe in yourself. Tell yourself you deserve better because you do. Even if you don't realise it yet.

You need to remember that you're loved, you're beautiful, yes you have flaws but so does everyone. You wouldn't be you without them, and that's what makes you special. There is only one you in the world, so show that you can be the best you. Don't let anyone undermine you in any way. Especially not yourself. You're not better than anyone else, but they aren't better than you either.

Be you, not for me, not for your family or friends, be you, for you.
