If you’re reading this then you probably feel like you are that girl. I feel like I am that girl at times. This one is to us… and to our future selves.
This one is to the girl who feels like she is invisible to the world and like she does not matter. This one is to the girl who feels like she was dropped from every friend group and only has maybe two people to rely on. This is to the girl who feels like no matter what she does for someone, it will never be enough to make them love her. This one is to the girl who tries her best to be “the happy girl” when in reality she is at war with herself. This is to the girl who is living the life right now that she once prayed for, but now she needs more. This is to the girl who feels like she does not really fit in anywhere. This is to the girl who is never proud of her biggest accomplishments because it may not be as good as she once thought. This is to the girl who feels like everyone is starring at her. This is to the girl who feels like she is the talk of the table. This is to the girl who feels like all of her mistakes will never leave her. And, this one is to the girl who feels like the whole world is against her.
But let me tell you… its not. And guess what else?
You are not THAT girl.
You are the girl who will stand tall and make an impact on the world. You are the girl who does not need a huge group of mediocre friends, but just the two who genuinely love you. You are the girl who loves yourself so much, that the love from someone else is just a bonus. You are “the happy girl” because that war you have in your head and heart, have already been battled by God, and you are stronger than that. You’ve made it this far, keep fighting for YOU. The real you. You are the girl who may have everything you have prayed for up until this point, but you need more because you are still growing. You are the girl who does not need to fit in anywhere because you fit in everywhere. You are genuine and kind and loved. You will eventually find your spot and your people. You are the girl who has accomplished more than you ever imagined, so instead of feeling like it isn’t good enough, be proud because YOU JUST DID THAT. You are the girl that people stare at because you radiate such good energy and they wish they had that too. You may be the talk of the table at times, but that says more about them than it does about you. You are the girl that has made mistakes, like everybody else, and that has helped you learn and grow into who you are becoming. And, you are the girl who is against the world, the world is not against you. The world has nothing on you. It is full of opportunities, experiences, and open doors. You are going after it full force because you deserve everything this world has to offer you.
All of the bad you see in yourself, as well as, all of the things that come your way, DO NOT DEFINE YOU. You are more than what other people say about you. You are more than how people act towards you. And, you are far more than how you see yourself.
So be kind to yourself. You are trying. You are learning. You are growing.
Remember this, you are not alone. A million other girls feel like you do right now. You are an overcomer and you are strong.
Stand tall, take a deep breath, and go conquer all of those mentally and physically draining obstacles.
You owe it to yourself.
