Do me a favor
Do me a favor. Close your eyes. Think of the things that make you happy, may it be your pet wiggling his tail, your favorite ice cream, the sound of the waves, or anything that puts a smile on your face. Think of the moments you felt so blessed, your first achievement, a sleepover with your friends or cousins, or when you thought you failed an exam but didn’t. Think of someone who’s always been there whenever you feel down, and yes it can be yourself too.
Now, tell me. Do you still feel alone? Do you still feel unwanted? Do you still feel like you’re not worthy of anything? Do you still feel like everything is a mess and you just can’t do anything right?
Then let me tell you something darling. Even stars don’t shine at their brightest sometimes. Even leaves fall to the ground. Even the moon is not in it’s complete state always. Even flowers wither.
So if you’re going through a hard time, please remember this. Stars still shine and so are you. And you know what? Flowers don’t die. You might have thought that once they wither, they’re no longer beautiful. But honey, you’re wrong. When a flower withers, it goes through changes. Changes that will make it more beautiful and stronger. And it will bloom again, and again and again.
And darling, it’s okay if you’ve fallen, but always remember to pick yourself up. You don’t want to stay on the ground for too long, right? It will numb you. So get back up again, start walking, because darling, you deserve to see all the beautiful things the world can offer you.
