This goes out to all the ladies. When you’re standing in front of the mirror, seeing the curves, fat, and pun for the liar’s words, think of what you don’t see. When you’re shopping for jeans, and the sizes are too small, your butt is too big, and trying to avoid the dirty floor causes you to fall, remember, there’s always another store. When you’re lying in bed alone, wishing you were being held tight, remember a man who, for you, gave up his life. Remember that this isn’t how things will always be, and that life isn’t always as it seems. You’re going to get hurt, but it’s the lack of belief that will hurt the worst. Stand tall, know who you are, and realize that only you can play your part.
