Proud

You should be proud,

of what you’ve done, and what you’ve achieved,

how you’ve grown, and changed.

You’ve made mistakes,

but so has everyone else.

You should be proud,

of how you’ve laughed through the pain,

and the way you’ve learned to love.

Mistakes don’t define you.

The past doesn’t define you.

What does define you,

is how you overcame it all.

You’ll get through this too.

The world isn’t easy.

It never has been. It never will be.

You wouldn’t have gotten this far if it was.

but you fought,

and grew,

and cried,

and loved,

and for that,

you should be proud.
