To the people who desperately need love, I want to take the time to acknowledge you.

I know things have not been easy for you. What specifically your situation involved, I am not entirely sure. Maybe you were dumped and had your heart stomped on. Maybe you are battling depression or anxiety. Maybe you flunked that huge exam. I am sure there could be a thousand reasons as to why you are feeling bad.

And I want you to know that I see you. I feel you. And I want you to know that you are not alone.

You have made it all the way up to this point in your life. You survived being born. You made it through your first birthday. You made it through all of the bullyings. You survived all of the awkward puberty stuff. And depending on where you are in life right now, I am sure you have survived a ton of other things which could have easily killed you. I know I have, and yet, I am here. And so are you!

Today, I would like you to think about everything that makes you valuable. What are some of the incredible things you have accomplished that people are amazed by? What have you gone through that made you a stronger person? What mistakes have you made that turned out to really be a positive learning experience for you?

Please, love yourself relentlessly today. You deserve it. I guarantee you do.
