Sometimes it takes a lot of words, sometimes it takes a few, sometimes it just takes an action. Doing something for someone you love. Having a heart for the hurting.
Today, I want you to know that you deserve to be accepted for who you are, period.
No matter what you have been told, no matter what you have heard, don’t let anything or anyone shame you.
That is not truth. That is not life. That is not love.
That is evil.
I found a little story and video clip that contain a message I want to tell you, to remind you of who you are and of the acceptance you deserve.
Here is the story, that originally appeared on LittleThings.com…
Dad’s Touching Act of Kindness For Outcast Daughter Goes Viral by Barbara Diamond
It can be hard enough to accept ourselves for who we are, let alone have others accept us and all of our differences and quirks. In the touching video below, a teenage girl is starting high school in a brand new city, and she’s about to learn this fact firsthand.
Because of the way she looks and how she dresses, the new girl in town is finding it impossible to make friends and find acceptance in her neighborhood. She’s the outcast, and everyone around her is judging her by her long black hair and dark clothing.
One day, she returns home from another disheartening day at school, when she comes to a sudden stop in front of our house. There’s her dad, who has decided to do something to show his daughter that he loves her for who she is, and he’s not afraid to show the world. His act of kindness left me speechless.
Although the video is an ad for a German company called Hornbach, its message is powerful and universal — especially in today’s world where bullying has become a widespread epidemic.
Please SHARE this incredible viral video with your friends on Facebook!
Regardless of what you have heard, regardless of how you have been treated, take this moment, right now, to receive this as the TRUTH about your worthiness, and accept it as being for you, okay? 🙂
With love, Susan
