I am writing this from a place of sincerity and genuine contentment that I have been blessed with. What I’m about to say, you ought to be paying close attention to. Read it, understand it, sleep on it, and be a better version of yourself the next morning. Sometimes we don’t get the love and respect we deserve but that’s only because we don’t try hard enough to love ourselves despite our imperfections. Sometimes we let the fear of being alone be the deciding factor and be satisfied just to settle. Sometimes we accept mediocrity because we don’t lift ourselves up enough. Piece of advice? Be picky; know your worth, your morales, your disciplines and never let anyone else take that away from you. Have goals in every phase of your life, it doesn’t matter if you have to reach it by yourself. Climb that mountain and don’t let anybody tell you how high you can go. When you start doing well for yourself, find solace, you’ll realize everything else will slowly come into place because you know deep down, everything good that comes your way after that is just an added bonus. Shine through, don’t let anybody dimmer your light. You are made for this world to make an impact on at least one person’s life. Imagine being an inspiration, or a savior, in your own way, and if that isn’t magical, I don’t know what is. Get rid of toxicity and get ahold of a good support system. It doesn’t have to be an elaborate squad. Just remember, your mom and dad love you.
