¡We can no longer be a bunch of empty minds living in critical times refusing to recognize real lies!

DEAR U,

Dear U,

Over the years, I have fussed you for not being brave enough, funny enough, smart enough, talented enough, handsome enough, rich enough, admired enough, educated enough, out-going enough, loud enough, old enough, loving enough and loved enough. 

I have demanded perfection from you and have found you wanting. The result of this obsession with perfection has been to make you terrified of failure and ridicule, angry at any and all obstacles, and finally, incapable of enjoying the bounty that was not only around you, but within you as well. 

Well, all that's about to change. From now on, I'm going to make every effort to love and accept you as you are. But since bad habits die hard, I'll start with something easy. From now on, you're MAN enough.


Affectionately,
Me!

  1. Love the letter, man. It really does help to write a letter to yourself and to the things/people that have impacted you in some way. It's really cleansing.

    Peace and blessings!

  6. All of us need to look into the mirror of our souls and remind ourselves that we are all beautiful and worthy. Thank you for reminding us all of this valuable lesson. True pride begins inside each of us.
