Do you remember that day you decided that you were sick and tired of living with the way you were?
When you knew that you were capable of so much more.
You might have felt once before unworthy, angry, bitter, and just sick of feeling like this.
Maybe it wasn't a revelation but just a daily choice that set you on the path to the strong woman you are now.
A woman who believes in herself is the one who never fears the world.
We don't feel like we're above anyone because we know what it felt like to feel like nothing.
We've just learned to embrace our self-worth because we know we deserve it.
We understand that struggle will never end, we just change the way we face it.
With failure comes a strength we never knew we were capable of.
With rejection comes a new path that was designed for us.
With criticism comes a new perspective.
When we start to change the way we react — we inevitably change the way we live.
We've learned to forgive ourselves for the mistakes we've made.
We've learned to overcome the grief, the pain, and the heartbreak.
Instead of giving up on our dream or a challenge, we preserved.
We never gave up even when it felt like the only option.
I'll have you know, the greatest achievements come to those who refuse to back down.
We know that who we were isn't who we were meant to become.
We've still continued to achieve our dreams even when other's thought we'd fail.
We've learned our self-worth is more valuable than people's opinions of us.
We've cried, we've broken down, but we still got back up.
When we felt like getting revenge we decided to do better.
We knew that life wasn't going to hand us the things we've wanted. We knew that if we ever wanted anything were the only ones capable of getting it.
We've discovered that our worth isn't found in the hands of others. It's found inside ourselves and what we can do for others.
We have everything inside ourselves that this world desperately seeking and it flourishes in the eyes of those who believes in us.
Be proud of the woman you are... Be proud of your past... Be proud that you overcame it.
You, my dear, are the bravest this world has ever seen.
