you are beautiful.
I understand that in our world right now, there is so much suffering and pain, and worst of all, it's spreading like wildfire. But I wanted to take this chance, using this platform, to reach out to everyone who sees this, that you don't have to be scared, insecure, suffering or miserable.
I am a firm believer that everyone in this world is beautiful, one way or another. I have to admit, that it took me 21 years (yes I am 21) to reach this conclusion, but I got there eventually. Everyone has an element of beauty in them, and I believe that it is the beauty within you that is so much more powerful than the ugly.
I know this blog is new, and I know that it has not reached many of you out there, but for those of you that are part of the Sweet World, I want you to know that it is okay to be YOU. It is okay to be happy. It is okay to be proud. It is okay to be motivated. And it is okay to laugh. But, more importantly, it is okay to be sad. It is okay to cry. It is okay to be angry. It is okay to be insecure. -- just not for too long!
We all have our moments when we struggle to stand on our own two feet and we need to ask for help. We all have our moments when we just don't want to get out of bed in the morning, because we're dreading what may come for the day.
Know that you are not alone in how you feel. Thousands, millions of people feel the same as you every now and again. I do not say this to trivialize what you feel, I say it so that you may know that we have all been in your position, which means we can help!
I have been where you are. I have felt the pain and the sadness that you may be feeling. I have felt the confusion, the loss and the uncertainty -- and I made it. I couldn't have done it without my support system -- my family, my friends, so let me welcome you into this world. Let us be your support system. I promise, it will get better!
I created this world to allow you all to be yourself. Be who you want to be, whomever that may be. Don't be afraid to express your style, your views, your power and your strength. This is not a place for people to judge, it is a place for people to admire the creativity and beauty within each and every one of you Sweethearts.
So, in conclusion, I would like to pass on these key words to you. Words that I tell myself every morning when I wake up, so that I may know that I have a purpose in this world, and that I have what it takes to be who I am that day.
Take care all of you Sweethearts out there.
