I Am A Warrior

Note to Self


Girl, you’ve had it rough.

No, stop! Don’t downplay what you have been through, the things you have experienced.

You feel like you have lived a million lives in one lifetime and you’re still young.

You’ve been abused, used, and confused.

You’ve sped through the years on the back-burner because that is what you do to survive.

It’s time to face yourself, missy. Grab that mirror and take a good, long look at yourself.

You’ve been working hard on overcoming the baggage you drag around. You are changing your inner voice and thought patterns. Face yourself and see how much you’ve grown.

The things you’ve learned, whether by chance or misfortune, help make up who you are.

Yes, who you are is still under construction. If you stop lying to yourself, you’ll know you will always be a work in progress.

Girl, you’ve got guts. You’ve made tough decisions in the blink of an eye because you had no other choice.

Your heart may be bleeding, but its touched many people’s lives.

You may not feel important all the time, but you are irreplaceable. You are rare.

Believe in yourself. Build yourself up.

Find the good in you, because it is there, in multitudes.

Embrace your shadows for they, too, help make up who you are.

You are not meant to settle. Your purpose is not a simple one.

You are complex and raw. You are truthful and honest in a world that is offended by anything.

Stand strong, oh sensitive one, for you are needed.

Picture is my own.
