There will be times that you are hurting and you don’t understand why things happen the way that they do. You’ll have questions that you might never get answers to. At least not in this life time. Have faith that those hard times are meant to teach you and get you to where you need to be. Learn from them and let them to make you a better person. Be proud of who you are and the road you have taken, however bumpy, to get to where you are.
You have a beautiful and amazing heart. There are so many people out there that will say things and do things to try to bring you down. They’ll belittle you’re thoughts, beliefs and feelings. They’ll pick on you because of how you look, the way you talk or the clothes you wear. As much as I hate to say it, there are some flat-out mean people in our world. I’ve seen the hurt in your eyes when someone has picked on you and it breaks my heart. It makes me sad to think that my nieces, nephews and someday my own children will have their feelings hurt by kids at school. I which I could protect them from it, but I can’t. However, I know that they will take those experiences and become better because of it.
My hope for all of you is that no matter what – Stand up for yourself. Be true to yourself. Don’t let the fear of what other people might think or how they might tease you keep you from being you. Remember how it feels when someone picks on you and try your hardest not to let someone else feel that pain because of something you’ve done. Stand up for those that can’t stand up for themselves. Know that you are beautiful/handsome, amazing, talented and smart. You have the ability to do anything that you put your mind to. The road might not always be easy but if you stick with it and don’t give up, I promise you that it will be worth it.
Always, be brave.
