I know it might seem like things are not getting better

or that you’re not seeing any progress,

or whatever it might be that you’re feeling/dealing with, I’m not too sure,

but know that you’re a strong, special and worthy person.

Only you can dictate what you want out of life and how long it’s going to take you to get it.

Progress doesn’t show up overnight, things don’t get better instantly,

Just be okay with doing things a step at a time and making little changes here and there

and then one day you’ll be surprised at how you can see progress in time.

I’m not sure exactly what you’re going through

or what thoughts you’ve been having,

or even if my words matter to you,

but don’t be so hard on yourself.

You’re your own worst critic.

Instead of tearing yourself down, compliment yourself,

let yourself know how beautiful, handsome, smart, creative, and great you are,

because you are.

You’re not a quitter in life.

I know it might not seem like I’m here for you,

But you know I always will be.

Remember that.

No matter how little we see each other or talk, you can always count on me.
