“I don’t matter” are words that I often hear.
But why do these words frequently appear?
Is it because of voices that have not been heard?
Or the poignant stories that have never been read?
Is it because of the feelings that have been ignored?
Or the thoughts that were never fully explored?
Is it because of the focus placed on our failings?
Or the feelings of disappointment that failure brings?
There are so many reasons why we can question our worth
Why we feel that we are not good enough.
Yet we would never let others carry all that pain
But, we do it to ourselves time and time again.
So, surely, it’s time to try
And be kinder to ourselves, so that we too can fly?
We know that one kind word can change someone’s day
So how about treating ourselves the same way?
You Matter Always aims to Encourage, Empower and Embrace,
A wee card of memories and messages that you can access in any place.
It reminds you of your strengths, abilities and potential
And that love, kindness and understanding, are fundamental!
You Matter Always is that little voice that says, “I care”
About your thoughts, feelings and your welfare.
It tries to reiterate how important you are
And stress how much you matter, near or far.
It appreciates that life can be complex and tough some days
But, whatever happens…You Matter Always.
