Life can seem so incredibly hard at times. 

It may seem like everything is crashing down around you.

As if all the roads have closed down, forcing you into a tiny cramped box, with no air.

As if all the doors in life have closed for you.

As if your friends are moving on with their lives, but you're stuck in the same rut.

You may feel that you're worthless. 

That you are the equivalent of the word 'stupid'.

That you fail at everything you do.

That everyone looks down on you.

Your self esteem may be at an all time low.

The tyres on your back make you look older than you are.

The complexion of the face that stares at you in the mirror is so disgusting.

The fact that your body type is just not beautiful enough.

Life can seem so incredibly hard at times.


Do you know what I say to that?


So what?

You're human.

You're sitting on a wheel. 

And that when you are on the top of that wheel, everything seems hunky dory.

And when you are squelched at the bottom, you've tasted the good life, and you know you fight to get back to it.


Fight for your happiness.

No one will fight for you.

No one will hold your hand and tell you that it's going to be all right.

Because it's not. 

Not till you rake your fingers against that box you've been squeezed into and turn them bloody, trying to find your own happiness. 

Don't be scared of a little pain.

Who says you're worthless?

And tell me, why does their opinion matter to you?

If somebody puts you down, do they really need a place in your life?

Your life is like candle's flame. 

You don't know when it will be snuffed out.

I'm not telling you to live crazy.

I'm telling you to be happy. 

Pay attention to that what matters. 

You may not be the smartest person in the room, all the time.

There will be things you don't know.

Because you can't know everything. 


The name of the game is learning. 

So what if you don't know something?

You're learning about it now, aren't you?

Your body?

I think you're beautiful.

It doesn't have to be your weight that makes you a beauty.

Maybe when you smile, your eyes shine that makes someone pause and take notice.

Those freckles that you hate, somebody thinks they're cute.

Somebody sits and day dreams about you, not having the courage to tell you.

Oh, so your dress doesn't suit you?

Your ass is too big?

So what?

Learn to laugh at yourself. 

Choose something else to wear.

Learn to love your body.

It is only when you respect and love your body, and love yourself, that others will like you.

The name of the game is confidence.

Fake it, till you make it.

It is your confidence that will attract people.


So, be proud of who you are.

Be proud of what you are.

You're unique. 

You're a beautiful person.

People will always judge you.

They will always point fingers at you.

And they will always forget about you, the moment you leave their sight. 


Be happy.
