You are enough.

Hey, you! Yeah, you. I have a secret for you: you are wonderful.

No matter what you may feel about yourself, know this, at least on a cognitive level: you are enough. Your life so far has formed you into a special, one-of-a-kind person. You may have gotten some scrapes along the way, but those scrapes just show people all you've triumphed over. You don't feel like you've triumphed over your obstacles? Well, you have. You are still moving, right? Still living? Still hoping? That shows that you are at least in the process of defeating those hurdles.

You are enough.

You are enough.

You are enough.

Someone--actually, quite a few someones--want to know you. They want to take the time to figure out what makes you tick; to explore the nooks and crannies of your mindset, your history, and your personality. They want you to open up to them, and they want to open up to you. They want to love you.

And you might think, "but what if I never find those people?" Honey, trust me. You will. It is in the cards. There is a purpose to this life, and we can't possibly fulfill that purpose without love.  Whatever or whoever created this life and it's purpose knows that we need love, and wants us to succeed in fulfilling our purpose, so they have put love in our futures. Also, loving feels good. So let others love you, and don't be afraid to love them back.

One other thing, just in case you feel like you will never find those people: I love you. I do! I love that you are reading my thoughts, and that you are a part of this world with me.

I love you with all your flaws--even more because of them, actually. I love I will never know anyone else just like you, and that the strange ways of our universe have crossed our paths, even if only for this fleeting moment in the grand scheme of life.

You are enough for me. You are more than enough. You fill me up with happiness and hope! Humanity has a funny way of doing that. Just think about the ridiculous world we live in... How insane our society is, and yet we are all searching to be "normal." What is normal in a world of the utterly bizarre? It's so silly of us! And yet we take ourselves so seriously.

The oxymorons we live are baffling to me, and yet I love it. I love that we need conflict to survive. I love that, when I am feeling lower than dirt, I can think about the fact that there is no way I am the first person to go through this. And that there are million of people out there to be inspired by!

I know my train of thought here is confusing, but I am so in awe of this immensely confounding life and all of the facets of it. And do you know why? Because of people like you.

You inspire me.

You give me hope.

You keep me alive.
