Hey Girl, you are doing big things, please stop beating yourself up all the time! Stop sweating the small stuff, nobody in life is meant to be perfect. YOU ARE DOING ONE HELL OF A JOB BEING YOU, I AM PROUD OF YOU. So what if you haven't gotten out of your pajamas today, so what if you haven't done laundry in a week, so what if you make a mistake or two along the way .... you are still killing the game.
Trust me Alex, I know your mind is busy calculating every tiny step on your path, but please let it rest sometimes. Take time for yourself to recharge. Know when to say NO. Being assertive does not make you a bitch, it makes you confident. Respect yourself, make boundaries, and then enforce those boundaries.
It is okay to be busy, but if it is causing you an overwhelming amount of anxiety let it go.
You are kind, and you feel everything so very deeply. So many people value that about you, but I know that you think it is your weakness. Alex, It is okay to care about people. It is okay to feel everything deeply, it gives you such a great empathy for others. It allows you to connect with real people.
Lastly, I want to give you some insight on something that I know is hurting you... Sometimes things don't work out, and trust me it is for the best.... because better things are coming your way! I promise. I know for a fact you will be better for it. I can say that because I see how truly hard you work. I see you for who you are. the loving, loyal, emotional, hardworking woman that you are.
And if I haven't told you yet, I'm very impressed with everything you've done thus far.
I love to see your success but I also love to see how you handle the hardships. You are a fighter, you have been through so much, and yet here you are. Your life was never meant to be easy, but that makes you who you are. You are 23, you have so much life to live. Keep going.
I love you for who you are. Please keep being you.
