This word goes out to all those girls out there that are starving themselves to become something they're not. To all the girls out there who feel like their weight is an important thing. To all the girls out there who think that they need to slim down a little bit, to get the attention they want. To all the girls out there who think that, you know, maybe if they were just a little thinner, their family would accept them. To all the girls out there that can't accept what they see when they look in a mirror.
I just want you to know that I think you are beautiful; I think that you are amazing, I think you are gorgeous. And I think that you are made for way more than you settle for. And I think another thing, too.
And I think that this lie that you embrace, that skinny this will give you something, that skinny will, skinny this, skinny that, is BULLSHIT. Skinny isn't going to give you anything! I hate to break it to you, but skinny is just... skinny. That's ALL it is!
You might think that your friends will like you more, boys will notice you, your family will accept you.... But it's not true.
All of these things that being thin promises you is a lie. You don't even see that you're destroying yourself! The very thing that you are trying to attain, you're actually pushing away FURTHER by doing this to yourself.
So I am here to tell you that you are beautiful. And that doesn't mean something on the outside! That doesn't mean that you have the perfect thighs, the perfect THIS, the perfect THAT. 'Cause there is no perfect! There is no such thing as perfection; it does not exist.
What I am telling you is that you are beautiful just the way you are inside. You are amazing the way that you are.
But you will never be that until you let go, until you let go of this fantasy of becoming thin.
Because YOU are enough.
You're enough for me, and you're enough for all of the other people out there that have the right perspective.
And to all of those people who are pushing to make you be something that you're not, they don't deserve you. They don't deserve your attention, and they certainly don't deserve your time and your effort.
Because YOU are good enough.
You are enough, and if you can't tell yourself that, I will keep telling you that YOU ARE ENOUGH.
I don't care if you're 100 pounds, or 200 pounds, or 300 pounds, it doesn't matter.
I want you to take care of yourself. I want you to love you and BE you. Be the best you you could possibly be, and that doesn't mean being skinny. That doesn't mean ANY of it.
Right now, I know you're going through a lot.
Right now, I know you feel alone, like you're never gonna be good enough for anybody, like you're just the ugly, fat, worthless one. But let me tell you something....
You're not. You're not. You are enough.
Please, if you are struggling with the obsession of being think, with the obsession of being skinny, get help. Talk to someone, please.
There is so much hope for you, SO MUCH hope for you, but you have to let go of it, you have to accept help.
It's really, really hard, but it's worth it because YOU are worth it. You deserve to be better, and you deserve to be happy.
And there isn't anyone in the world that can tell you differently. You are enough.
Remember that you're not alone, and you are enough.
I think you are beautiful. I think you are made for more than you settle for, and you are, you are enough."
I can't for the life of me remember this guy's name, though his voice is really familiar.
To all the girls out there.....
