To The Girl Who Thinks She Isn’t Good Enough

Dear girl who thinks you are not good enough,

Contents

    I know you. You’re the kind of girl who thinks she is not pretty enough or sexy enough. The one who thinks that he will never like you because you’re not worth it.

    Well, let me tell you something… You are amazing.

    I know that you feel insecure and maybe you’re not comfortable about the way you look, but trust me, you are beautiful. It doesn’t matter if you have a few pounds more, if you’re wearing makeup or not, if your hair looks bad today, you are beautiful. And no one should tell you you’re not.

    Don’t be ashamed of your body, every curve can tell a story. Your size doesn’t matter, you are so much more than a number. Illumine your cute face with a beautiful smile. We spend too much time worrying about the way we look instead on focusing our thoughts on our personalities and qualities. Trust me, you’re flawless.

    Be true to yourself. Don’t ever change for anybody. Stop pretending you’re someone you’re not. You have to embrace your qualities for others to appreciate them, and if someone doesn’t like you, it’s their problem not yours.

    Don’t apologize for being you, you’re freaking awesome, and if they can’t appreciate you, it’s at their loss. Stand behind your decisions because at the end of the day it will only be about your happiness.

    Please, walk away from anyone who tells you that you are not good enough. That kind of person is poison and they sure as hell are not your friends. Trust me, you are enough. Even better, you are amazing.

    If someone needs to shame you just so they can feel better about themselves, it’s on them not on you. Don’t just walk away from them, please run away.

    There is someone out there who will appreciate all your qualities and all your flaws. Someone who will look at you like you’re something magical. A person who will not only like the way you look but adore every part of your body.

    But until this guy comes, don’t let anyone make you think you’re not good enough.

    Because you are. You are a beautiful, talented, intelligent, freaking awesome girl. Every person in this world is special in its own way and so are you. You are unique.

    And deep down you know that, but you also know that you need a wake up call. Someone to remind you that you are more than good enough.

    Well, lady, you are smart and you are also beautiful. You can be anything you want. And nobody is better and nobody is worse.

    Never forget, you are beautiful inside and out, your opinions matter, and the one person who should love you the most should be you.

    Also, remember that you are the one who can define “good enough.” If you want to be good enough, just set up the standard as high as you want.

    The moment you start thinking about yourself as a “good enough” person, the people around you will also see you as good enough.

    We are all imperfect beings, and that’s okay because nobody is perfect. But one thing is sure, you are enough. The smile on your face is enough. The way you look at the world and the way you keep pushing is enough.

    Stop worrying about love because love will come. Your soulmate will come and your right person will make you feel perfect in spite of your flaws and insecurities.

    I know it’s hard to accept yourself and to love yourself, but it is crucial for your own good. You can change your body, or the way you laugh, but you can’t accept your imperfections.

    Loving yourself is very important. You have to love yourself so that someone else can love you for what you really are.

    Always think of yourself as a piece of art, a freakin’ masterpiece, because you are. You’re your own masterpiece. And I truly hope that someday you will feel just as beautiful as you are and that you will be aware that not only are you good enough, but that you are way more than enough.
