“In one day,
we’re presented with countless opportunities
to feel bad about ourselves
or to feel awkward in our skin:
that stranger who glares at us as we walk down the street
for absolutely no reason at all.
Isolated, these moments seem to indicate
that there’s something deeply wrong with us.
But remember who loves you
and you bring some much-needed context to it all.
Remember who loves you and all the secondary,
superficial worries of life begin to recede,
if only for a stolen moment.”
