…today’s secret…A unique poem.
This poem accurately describes how many of the people you are trying to help feel about themselves.
I’m very ugly
So don’t try to convince me that
I’m a very beautiful person
Because at the end of the day
I hate myself in every single way
And I’m not going to lie to myself by saying
There is beauty inside of me that matters
So rest assured I will remind myself
That I am a worthless, terrible person
And nothing you say will make me believe
I still deserve love
Because no matter what
I am not good enough to be loved
And I am in no position to believe that
Beauty does exist within me
Because whenever I look in the mirror I always think
Am I as ugly as people say?
Read it again, from the bottom up. This is the way they could feel about themselves with your help.
