but think of all the growth you've experienced through the past couple of years

the heartache hurt, I know

those nights spent crying on bathroom floors felt like there would never be a happier day left

but there was

and there are more to come

and darling look at what you have become

you are strong, you have matured, you don't allow the small petty things to affect you the way they had in the past

you are growing into the beautiful person you wanted to become

please remember that beautiful things come out of broken pasts

you are worthy of being admired

you are not broken

you are simply developing into who you are meant to be.
