Stay True To Yourself

Dear Someone,

This letter is for you, you that’s fighting a battle that no one understands or knows about. You that wakes up every morning and wishing you never had to change yourself to win someone else’s heart. You that is ruining everything without trying. You that’s thinking too much and creating problems that are not existing. You that’s comparing your Chapter 1 to someone else’s Chapter 18.

I am sending you this 5 minutes rush of hope to fuel up your spirit and to let you know that you don’t have to change yourself to win someone’s heart. When you stay true to yourself, you’ll find someone who like you for being you. Stop putting so much effort trying to win someone else’s heart, let go not because you want to but because they let you. You can’t win over someone’s heart when you’re barely on their mind. Stop wishing that you are good enough for him or her. Let things come and go. The things that are meant to stay will stay and the best love story is when you fall in love with the most unexpected person at most unexpected time.

Don’t spend too much time worrying about what others think about you and irrespective of how you feel today in that situation, don’t spend too much time thinking about the hurdles, those that have hurt you or the things that are causing you sleepless nights — focus on building a plan to cross them because no one understands your fears. No one understands how it feels like fighting an uphill battle alone. No one except God will ever understand the personal battles you have to live with every day, the struggle to survive and the struggle to reach out every time and be knocked back and be misunderstood.

Today is not as bad as your situation will want you to think. You should also not let someone else’s opinion of you become your reality. Stop comparing yourself to others — you are not them, your struggles and gifts are different. Stop comparing yourself, accept who the Lord made you to be and who He is molding you to be. And until tomorrow, if you feel alone in a battle you think no one understands. You’re not alone. God is with you. You are not alone — you have His Spirit in you. This situation you’re in is just a phase, it will pass. You will be okay. You are not your failures. You are worth it. God is able. He understands what you’re going through and has promised to be with you in every trial of life. Don’t let Satan be louder than Him in that situation. May God help you to smile again, help you to trust again, and help you to love again.

In Him,
~Ali Papa.
