An Open Letter

To everyone who thinks they’re not good enough,

A-hem. ExC-UH-USE me.

Yes, you are good enough. For everything and anything.

What do you want to do? Do you think you can do it? Because I’m here to tell you that you can. (Well, to a certain extent. As long as it’s achievable in this world, you can do it, anyway.)

What exactly do you feel is bad about yourself? Your looks? Well, everyone is beautiful in their own way. I know that’s overused, but I’m not saying that just because it’s politically correct, I’m saying that because I believe it’s true. Even people that I dislike have beautiful aspects to their personality, and I’ve seen them.

Your body? Let me tell you a secret. *whispers* It’s not as bad as you think it is. *speaks normally again* Amazing, right? Chances are, nobody but you cares about it. We are naturally our own worst judges, so stop judging yourself.

Your smarts? No one is stupid. Some people have more difficulty learning than others, yes, but NO ONE is stupid. Everyone is intelligent in their own way, and about different things, just like the whole beauty thing.

Your confidence? Well, firstly, why is your confidence so low? If it’s been caused by a person, which, I find, most low confidence is, listen now and hear me now: they’re wrong. Trust me, they are. Anything bad they have said about you is probably based off of their own insecurites, so you shouldn’t listen, and this misery they’ve made you feel doesn’t have to last. I guarantee that there are people who can and WANT to help you restore your confidence. It’s not impossible.

Your standing on the social ladder? Well, my opinion on social standing is that it’s stupid. You don’t need anyone else’s approval, just do you. But, if you are all self-conscious about it, I promise, those opinions will not really matter later.

In short, you are beautiful, smart, unique, and awesome as you are. Don’t let anyone, including yourself, make you think differently.

With love,

Your Ginger

(P.S. This post was brought on by a friend of mine. I find it extremely upsetting when I cannot get someone to see their worth, when I can see it so clearly. I know that most people struggle with their self image, and I know that this may not convince anyone that they are amazing, but please believe me.)
