Positive Thoughts Equals Strength

YOU must respect yourself because unfortunately many people will not. YOU must believe in yourself and show the world that you are more than “just a girl”, that you matter! YOU must learn. Get an education so you can educate other girls. Whatever your favorite subject is, find out more about it than you can learn at school. Go to the library and continue your education.

Try this simple exercise each day as you follow your dreams. Repeat the positive affirmation that is below as often as you want. Write this affirmation in your journal. Decorate a shirt with these words. Post it online where all your friends can see it and use it for themselves.

I AM IN CONTROL.
I AM STRONG.
I AM SMART.
I DESERVE EQUALITY.
I AM BEAUTIFUL.
I AM POWERFUL.
I AM A SURVIVOR.
I CAN CREATE POSITIVE CHANGE.

Can You Show Me

What do you see when you look at me? Can you teach me how to see what you see?

All I see is a scared little girl, unable to speak, unable to breathe. I want to shout for help. I want to see what others see.

When I look at you I see someone strong, unafraid to take risks, unafraid to be wrong.

When I look at me all I see is fear. I want to be like you but now you’re gone. How can I ask you what you see.

Just come back for a minute and tell me. Please please please tell me what you see!

Push, Run, Hide

I didn’t mean to push you away. I didn’t want to make you go. I want you so much. So I push you away.

I run away. I run so fast that nobody can catch me.

Hide under a mask of smiles and lies. Hide so nobody ever sees my broken soul.

That push keeps me safe. No broken hearts, no scars, no pain. Nobody can hurt me I brag. Nobody will ever break me I boast. Ha! These are lies I say to all of you. They hurt to say. They hurt, but they grow.

Fear fuels me. Raw and numb, it has filled my soul. This fear is destroying me. Slowly scratching away at my soul. Stealing my hope and weakening my bones. I want to rip fear out, break it into little pieces and stomp it to dust. Stomp till it is just a memory.

Can you see my broken spirit. The holes and cracks. It’s not complete. It’s not like yours.

Your spirit is strong and filled with warmth. You glow without fear.

Everyday I scream on the inside. I curl up in a little ball. It’s dark in here, but when you are near I feel warm light. Stay with me. Don’t leave. Don’t tell me it’s too late. Offer your hand. Pull me out. I will not push you. I will not run away. I will not hide.

I will take your hand. I will not look back. I will not let go.
