Dear Girl- A One Shot

Pretty, pretty please
Don't you ever, ever feel
Like your less than
Less than perfect
Pretty, pretty please
If you ever, ever feel
Like your nothing
You are perfect to me

-P!nk; F***ing Perfect (Clean Version)
Dear Girl

Dear Girl.

You don't need make-up to look beautiful. You don't need to be size zero to have a good figure. You don't need to wear mini-skirts to be attractive. You just need to be yourself. That's what's most important. Do what you like to do. Never change yourself for anyone, it's absolutely not worth it.

If God made you like this, he definitely has a reason for it. He didn't make you like this for you to change who you are. You might feel unaccepted by almost everyone around you. But, trust me, there will be someone who will accept you for who you are. There will be somewhere you will be accepted just the way you are.

Just because there are nicer and sweeter girls around doesn't mean that you are bad. You are perfect just the way you are. You might be misunderstood, judged unfairly and compared to your goody-two-shoes cousins, but that doesn't mean you are bad. It just means that they can't see you from your point of view.

You might feel like the whole world is against you, like the universe is conspiring against you. You might feel lost and lonely, cut off from the world even when you are surrounded by people around you. You might feel mistreated and ignored and mostly just unwanted, but you are special. You are special in your own way.

There will come a time when you feel tired of trying to make people understand. You'll feel like giving up. You'll feel fed up. You'll feel like nothing is worth it anymore. Just then, think of the one person or one thing that means the most to you. Think of them/it and remember, they/it are always worth it.

If others try to put you down, don't let them. If someone plays dirty, you ignore them. Not because you are weak, but because you are ten times the person that person will ever be. Let hater's be. They are only jealous 'coz they are not you.

Be proud of yourself. Embrace your individuality. Don't spend your life trying to become someone else's shadow, 'coz you lose a lifetime of being beautiful, being you. You are amazing, you are beautiful, you are perfect just the way you are.

There will be people who always find faults with you, who criticise you as if it's their birth right. Ignore them and move on. Don't give them the satisfaction of having gotten to you. You might feel like you don't belong where you are. You might not belong there, but you do belong in the world. Somewhere in this world there is a planet where you belong, wholly and fully. Remember that.

There maybe times when people don't get your feelings. They'll term it as "infatuation" and/or "crush" and just make your heart and feelings seem like shit. You might cry out to them and try to let them know that you are not too young for love and all, but it's actually better to let it be. Why? Because no one knows what goes inside your heart, except you yourself. Trust your heart, trust yourself and you will be absolutely fine.

Never give up on life. Never lose hope, no matter how bad things. Vent your feelings out. Talk to your best friends, write in a diary, listen to your favourite song or dance to your favourite tune. Or, just read this letter, again and again till you feel better. Never change yourself for someone else. Absolutely no one is worth that change. Never give up. Never harm yourself. Because the sun will rise tomorrow, bringing sunshine and warmth into your life once again.

Another girl who has seen it all :-)
