every single girl should hear this.
yay this came back
I don’t know about the rest of you but this was literally painful to hear, and I don’t mean that sarcastically or in the sense that this was a terrible post. It’s a beautiful thing, but it literally hurt me to listen to it because it really hit home.
aw like the way his voice does that thing at the very end
Because I felt like this needed to be done too. Because boys can be secure about their weight too.
All the credits go to the one who wrote this in the first place. I just changed it a little bit.
And this… This goes out to all those boys out there that are starving themselves to become something they’re not. To all the boys out there who feel like their weight, their appearance or their muscularity is a important thing. To all the boys out there who think that they need to slim down a little bit, become a little more muscular, to get the attention they want. To all the boys out there who think that, you know, maybe if they were just a little thinner, a little bit more muscular or a little less girlish, their family would accept them. To all the boys out there that can’t accept what they see when they look in a mirror.
I just want you to know that I think you are beautiful. I think that you are amazing. I think that you are truly handsome. And I think that you are made for way more than you settle for. And I think another thing, too.
And I think that this lie that you embrace, that skinny will give you something, that skinny will, muscular this, muscular that, is BULLSHIT. Skinny isn’t going to give you anything. Muscular isn’t going to give you anything. I hate to break it to you, but skinny is just… skinny. And muscular, well… just muscular. That’s all it is!
You might think that your friends will like you more, girls will notice you, your family will accept you… But it’s not true.
All of these things that being thin or being muscular promises you is a lie. You don’t even see that you are destroying yourself with these thoughts.
So I am here to tell you that you are amazingly handsome. And that doesn’t mean something on the outside! That doesn’t mean that you have the perfect thighs, the perfect six-pack, the perfect this or the perfect that. Because there is no perfect! There is no such thing as perfection; it simply does not exist.
What I am telling you is that you are amazing just the way you are inside. You are amazing the way that you are.
But you will never be that until you let go. Until you let go of this fantasy from having to change.
Because YOU are enough.
You are enough for me and you are enough for all the other people out there that have the right perspective.
Ant to all of those people who are pushing to make you be something that you’re not, they don’t deserve you. They don’t deserve your attention, and they certainly don’t deserve your time and effort.
Because YOU are good enough.
You are enough, and if you can’t tell yourself that, I will keep telling you that YOU ARE ENOUGH.
I don’t care if you’re 100 pounds, or 200 pounds, or 300 pounds. It doesn’t matter.
I want you to take care of yourself. I want you to love yourself and be yourself. Be the best you you could possibly be, and that doesn’t mean you need to change your body. That doesn’t mean that at all.
Right now, I know you’re going through a lot. Right now, I know you feel alone, like you’re never gonna be good enough for anybody, like you’re just the ugly, fat, worthless one. But let me tell you something…
You’re not. You’re not. You are enough.
Please, if you are struggling with the way that you look, are obsessing over your appearance, get help. Talk to someone, please.
It’s really, really hard, but it’s worth it because YOU are worth it. You deserve to be better and you deserve to be happy.
Remember that. Remember that you’re not alone and that you are enough.
Just remember that.
I think you are beautiful. I think you are made for more than you settle for and you are, you are enough.
