Don’t call me beautiful
I don’t care
call me intelligent
tell me my laugh is contagious;
that I made you smile
tell me I have something to offer
People need to be encouraged. People need to be reminded of how wonderful they are. People need to be believed in—told that they are brave and smart and capable of accomplishing all the dreams they dream and more. Remind each other of this.
