I love working with girls who are on a journey towards self discovery, and I guess its mainly because not only do I get it…the ugliness, at times, of figuring out who you are, what you want and why you’re here; but I think I love it more because in the depths of my soul, I know that YOU belong. That I belong!! You may not have found your space or place just yet, but its there. You were created to belong!!
To belong is to be safe, protected, cherished. We all crave it to some degree. A desire to belong is not self-serving, its not selfish or peer-pressured or fake; it’s real and innate and alive within all of us.
You may have lonely days my friend, but you are not alone. Please never let this lie take root in your heart. There are so many like you. Yes you are different (and THANK GOD) but different doesn’t make you ugly. It makes you unique and beautiful & invaluable!!
You will find your space in this world! It may take some time, and lots of self-searching – but how wonderful that you get to walk this road of discovering who you are & what makes you, YOU. Take it slow. Be intentional. Be kind to yourself. You are not alone.
You are beautiful. And loved and YOU do belong!!!
