a letter to me if i would listen



hey. you.
yeah, you -- the girl in the hippie pants.
let me tell you something.

you can stop blushing now. 
you can stop looking at the ground. 
you can stop saying "really?" in reply to compliments.

you don't have to do everything.
i know sometimes it feels like you have to,
but you don't.
really.
you can trust other people to help you.
they love you. 
they want to help. 
let them.

you don't have to feel stupid -- ever.
you're not. 
don't ever let anyone make you feel stupid.
just don't. 
it's your choice.

love,
me

  1. A lovely, poetic letter. You should listen to your own advice—because I, for one, can say that I needed it, too.

  2. YOU ARE SO ADORABLE! Also, the letter... yeah. If only we could listen to the simplest words of wisdom that come our way! You are a MASTERPIECE, Abbie! I'm currently memorizing Psalm 139 and...well, yeah. It's been powerful. We are known and indwelled by the most beautiful thing ever--God. How can we not be shining reflections of His character?
