kill them with kindness.

in the past few weeks i think i've grown to start to accept who i am. kind of scary as a first sentence huh? but, really... these past few weeks we're by far the worst yet the best weeks ever of my life. So- your wondering.. where the heck is she going with this? well, the past few weeks, i've had many of my close ones criticize me from head to toes. NONSTOP. And last night was my breaking point. I just had enough of what everyone had to say and started to crawl into bed to escape from all the criticism. Unfortunately, these tears didn't really help me fully escape from everything- instead, i kept thinking in my head "why the hell is everyone so shady lately?! why does my outer appearance really matter that much? who are they to tell me that i've gained weight or that my skin got really bad?" I try to not think too much about this because it obviously sounds pretty silly right? why should i be crying in my bed all night because of their harsh words? pretty soon, i turned my laptop on and wrote my dad an email because apparently, i might be deprived of having some true family around me. After i vented out, my dad called me within the next 20 minutes and we had a very intense conversation. He told me...

"Why are you so concerned with what other people have to say about you?! I know you Megan and you are my beautiful, most caring daughter ever so why should you listen to all that nonsense?! You know who you are and what you want so why should the rest matter? You have to grow and learn to love yourself inside and out. You are beautiful, regardless of what other people say."
- Dad.

So my point to all this is, no matter what other people say about you, love who you are because if you break through the people who shake you up and put you down, and you reply back with unconditional love to them, they themselves will realize what a loving person you are. inside and out.


P.S. You are beautiful, don't forget that.

Your Dad's words are so true. Everyone is beautiful in their own, unique way and if you disagree with that, you definitely don't have to go and tell the world.
Love, Malou

When The popular comment layout is common, so it is easily recognized scanning to post a comment. If the comment section is in a different format, then I am going to spend more time trying to decipher what everything means.
