I want you to imagine a 6-year-old version of yourself sitting opposite to you right this minute. Got it?
She’s right there with cute pigtails, bright twinkling eyes, and her beautiful laugh spreading all over her face like the sunshine, that you can’t help but keep smiling at her. Her face is flushed and she grins at you.
Okay, now I want you to tell this little girl that she means absolutely nothing.
Tell her she’s an embarrassment, a humiliation, that she’s worthless and completely useless.
Tell her to back off, because she can’t do anything properly. Call her a coward and ask her to keep quiet, because she’s awkward.
Are you doing it?
Can you say it…?? Can you say it at all ?
No. You can’t do it, right?
Now realise that this is essentially what you do to yourself every single day.
Don’t you keep calling yourself an awkward idiot everytime? Don’t you ask youself to back off, because you tell yourself that you’re scared?
There is no need of haters when you constantly put down yourself in front of others. How can you do that?
Well, what do you REALLY want to say to that kid?
That she’s worth it, right? That she’s incredible and should NEVER let ANYONE tell you otherwise.
That she’s as beautiful and bright as the sunshine coming out of the clouds, with laughter that has got ground into her skin like the freckles she’s got from the sunshine.
Now say this new stuff to yourself.
Lift your shoulders and walk high. Every inch of you is carved beautifully.
Who says you aren’t worth it?
You have calcium in your bones, iron in your veins, zinc in your cells, cobalt in your tissues, carbon in your souls and copper in your nerves. 93% stardust, with hearts made of flames and fire, we’re all just stars that have people names.
Say it to yourself. Repeat it. Believe it.
Before you put yourself down, please consider everything you’ve accomplished to get to this point- every life you’ve touched, every moment you’ve pushed beyond your fears. You are a champion. You are a fighter.
You are an inspiration.
And this is something someone should say over and over again. ❤
Because you’re worth it.
P.S. If YOU believe you’re just a piece of trash, then who’s going to believe that you are a born diamond ?
The next time you feel useless, just remember that your organs are hella lotta money worth in the black market. Lol, just kidding.
You are worth so much more than you can ever imagine.
Remember though, they are rusted copper. You are fucking gold. . 💫
