This is a letter to remind yourself that you are beautiful. Yes, it may be true that you struggle with that voice in your head telling you that you’re not or that you’re a failure or many other negative things, but remember that voice is not your true voice.

You are the voice of confidence, perseverance, determination and of course strength. Please promise yourself whatever you do, you won’t give up this fight, you never know what’s around that corner.

Promise that you will do everything in your power to fight the good fight.

Why you might ask?

Because you deserve to be happy, healthy and mainly, you deserve to be the best person you can be to yourself.

You don’t have to prove anything to others. Yes, your struggles are real and yes there will be more struggles to come, but remember these things will pass. Remember all those negative feelings that pierce the very fibers of your body and thoughts and make you want to go back to how you were and want to let that voice win will pass as well.

These feelings and thoughts are temporary, they come and go like the tide of the ocean. You just have to stand there and watch them pass, but not let them sweep you away into that darkness again.

Remember you really want the very best and also recovery for yourself — promise yourself that you won’t stop until you get this. It will be hard, it will be a uphill battle, it will take time and there will be times where you want to give up but it will be worth it in the end.

You are human, you are as complex as the universe itself and remember that you are even more beautiful than the stars in the sky. You are unique. Don’t give this up.

Promise yourself that you will remember this every day.
