  • You keep telling yourself that you're ugly

  • That you can't possibly ever love yourself cause every time you look in the mirror

  • You don't like what you see

  • The stretch marks, loose skin, gap between your front teeth. Overanalysing every single part of yourself, destroying your self esteem

  • Constantly telling yourself how could anyone ever want you

  • When even you don't like your own body

  • I wish I could tell you that you're perfect just by being you

  • And I'd tell you that every single day

  • Until you start to believe it too

  • And I mean it

  • I just wish you knew just how much I adore you

  • How I love even when you're going through some of your toughest times

  • You still manage to put on a smile and act like everything's fine

  • Or how I think you're brave

  • Intelligent, gentle, kind

  • How you're going to change the world someday with that incredible mind

  • I hate seeing you cry

  • Cause everytime you look in the mirror you see something you don't like

  • I hate how much it hurts you every single time

  • I wish I could take the pain away

  • Make you see what I see

  • And then maybe you'd change your mind

  • I hate watching you beat yourself up all the time. When are you gonna realise this ongoing battle you have with yourself... It's a losing fight

  • You're literally destroying yourself from the inside, trying so hard to be something you're not

  • When you're already perfectly fine

  • You're a beautiful, walking, human sunshine in my eyes

  • You keep comparing yourself to others

  • When are you going to understand that being yourself is enough

  • Constantly seeking validation from other people when what you really need is self-love

  • Yes I know you don't have the perfect body

  • Reality check: most people don't

  • So what's the use in tearing yourself appart like this if you think it's gonna help you in any way

  • Well let me be the first to tell you

  • It won't

  • I'll never understand how someone so great

  • Can think so little about themselves

  • I watch you

  • Unable to leave the house without make them struggling to cope every day and

  • I just wanna be able to help

  • You reduced yourself to ugly

  • You hide behind baggy clothes, watch what you eat

  • think so much about what people think that you can't even walk down the street

  • Self-hate has filted its way into every inch of your body

  • And it kills me

  • To watch someone I care about so much be so incredibly unhappy

  • I hope one day you can look at yourself in the mirror and live with what you see

  • That it doesn't hurt you so much anymore cause you'll understand that you've got more to offer the world than simply being pretty

  • No longer haunted by the scars on your skin but choosing to be the change they want to see

  • But more importantly

  • Right now

  • In this moment

  • I want you to know

  • Just how incredibly perfect you are

  • To me

You keep telling yourself that you're ugly
