Yeah, I see you. I see you for all your flaws and failures, your mistakes and your scars AND I also see you for your courage, your tenacity, your passion and the love you have for your family. Nope, you’re certainly not perfect, and perhaps you’re actually happy not to be. First of all, it’s tiresome. Second, you get creative when you have to figure things out.
You’ve always longed for acceptance. From your parents, your friends, your teachers, your colleagues, your community. Well, that’s normal but you know what the best sort of acceptance is? Your own. So then, you don’t have to care a hoot about what others think about you. I mean, don’t get me wrong, acceptance from people - that’s cool, but acceptance within yourself is even better. It’s like having a secret superhero power.
When you find acceptance within yourself, you’re free to be who you really are. You’re not like XYZ, you’re not ABC... you’re YOU. There’s no one else like you, or will ever be like you. No one else dances that crazy spider dance with Jaden. No one else secretly unfolds the laundry just because it wasn’t folded the way you liked it to. And no one else makes art the way you do.
Girl, you’re fine the way you are. Your flaws, scars and brokenness is welcome here. Here’s a big hug to say everything’s gonna be okay.
Love you always,
