Dear teenager,

Have you ever laid on your bed at night, and just cried? Cried because you’re ugly. Cried because you’re not good enough. Cried because you’ll never be. Cried because you counted your flaws from head to toe to punish yourself and feel worse about yourself. Cried because the comments people blurt out actually hurt your feelings. Cried because your family is dysfunctional. You don’t want to be a burden, so you bottled it all up. Around people, you’re the happiest ray of sunshine. But nobody knows, that at night when you’re alone, you break down and just cry.

It is the sad, true story of every teenager’s life. But why? Why can’t we all feel good about ourselves? Why can’t people be more understanding? Why is everything so complicated? Why are we never good enough? Why can’t we make everyone happy? Why can’t everything go smoothly?
The truth is, you, yes YOU, are beautiful, you are stunning, inside and out. Why? Because you are YOU. You may not be perfect, but in the end, who is? The answer? NOBODY. You mean the world to at least one person in this world, your mother, father, uncle, aunt, brother, sister, grandfather, grandmother, friend, teacher, neighbour or even someone you don’t even know exists! There will always be somebody there for you if you just give them a chance, and open your heart to them. You will be surprised at how understanding and nice people can be. You will realise that there is always someone going through exactly what you are going through, there will always be somebody there for you, beautiful, stunning you. I know that I will always be there for anyone of you. ANYONE!

 The person you are going to marry is probably walking the earth right now, they will love and cherish you, surely, that’s a reason to make you smile and keep fighting through all life’s obstacles.

Do you ever look at a picture of yourself and see a stranger in the background? It makes you wonder how many strangers have pictures of you. How many moments of other people’s life have we been in. Were we a part of someone’s life when their dream came true, or when their dream died? Did we keep trying to get in? As if we were somehow destined to be there or did the shot take us by surprise? Just think that you could be in a big part of someone else’s life, and not even know it.

You are beautiful, you are special, you are perfect for somebody, perfect in somebody’s eyes. Haters are out there to put you down, don’t let them get to you, life will teach them a lesson, and when that time comes, boy will they regret everything they have done.

Don’t underestimate anyone. Never. Everyone deserves a chance, a second chance, why not even a third chance? Be good to people, they will be good to you!

Stay strong. ♥
