Friend, you cannot control what anyone else thinks of you, says about you, believes about you. You can control what you think of you, say about you, believe about you. Choose to love yourself. Look at how far you’ve come, what you’ve accomplished, what’s you’ve powered through. People may think what they want, but they’ll never know where you started. You’re doing beautifully.
This is important, because you are important, so please pay attention.
Your voice matters. What you have to say, how you feel, what you think. Those things matter. They are significant. They are your experience, and that is valid. You are valid. You hear me? You matter. Your voice matters. Your heart matters. You matter.
