Someone from my past told me something last night that brought me to tears. Actual tears.
He said ” You deserve the best. You worked your butt off in everything… be proud.”
This is someone I haven’t seen in years and knew back in high school. Someone who acknowledges the type of person I am even if he doesn’t know me well anymore. Someone who believes that I am a hard working person who deserves the best.
It’s amazing to hear. Absolutely amazing. Breath-takingly amazing. To hear that from someone who knew me before. Who has watched me struggle and push myself past the point even I believed I could.
Thank you. Thank you so much for believing in me. For being a witness to my struggle and being proud.
Find someone who thinks about you the way this person thinks about me. Find someone who is willing to give you the world because they believe you deserve it. Whether it be a friend, a family member or a significant other. Surround yourself with people like this. Who acknowledge you. The person you truly are.
