Masterpiece in Progress

Posted on: May 5th, 2016 by Kate Perry

I’ve been told I’m beautiful.
I’ve been told I’m ugly.

I’ve been called fat, and I’ve been called skinny. My nose has been both regal and crooked. Sometimes my breasts are too big, and sometimes they’re too small.

I’ve been told to tone it down. I’ve been told men don’t like women who are smart, or ones who talk back. I’ve been told that my laugh is embarrassing because it’s so loud.

I’ve been complimented for my birthing hips, and I’ve been told I’m past my “sell-by” date.

None of it matters.

I know who and what I am. I’m perfect in my imperfections. I’m a masterpiece in progress, like Jessie J sings.

You are too. I see who you are: someone great who lives in brilliant color. You deserve someone who sees and hears the real you and loves you for it, too.

Sending you all the love…
Me
