I know that sometimes it can be hard to look in the mirror and feel like you’re enough.
Is my hair, body, and clothes
Having to adjust the way you walk or the way you talk to please them
It’s even more difficult when the biggest critics are your parents
Maybe, if I talk like this or walk like this or do this or do that they won’t say anything today
Maybe, just maybe
If I stay quiet at the right time and speak at the right time we won’t argue today
Maybe, I won’t go out today so they don’t ask for details
If I lie, they’ll know I’m lying..
If I tell the truth they’ll still think I’m lying
They already think I’m “sinning”
I know that sometimes it can be hard to feel loved
Do they really love me for who I am?
Do they love me for who they want me to be?
Do they love me because they hope it’s a phase?
Do they love me to put on a show?
Maybe it would’ve been easier if I was “normal.”
But I can assure you
You are enough
You are loved
You are valuable
You are worthy
You are normal
more than that
You are extraordinary
You are courageous
You are beautiful
