Notes from myself.



Every step I took today. Every step I took was accompanied by: "You are not funny. You are not pretty. You are not young anymore. You are not good enough. You do not have the enthusiasm for life that you used to. You do not get good grades. You do not have any friends. You not enough for anyone - let alone good enough for yourself," the footsteps said. My parents asked me why I was so angry. I cried. "I am not proud of myself anymore." Step. "You are not funny." Step. "You are not pretty." Step. "You are fat." Step. "You suck." Step. "You are a terrible person." FALSE.

I am me. I am me and I am good enough. I am me and I am good enough and I do not need your approval.

Stay pretty. (You already are.)
All my love, Addy
