Dear Deserving Girl,

Everyone has experiences that we cannot see . . . layers of memories, emotions, dreams, longings, fears, limitations, and magnificence woven into each life story.

As life moves forward, we begin to see how very complex we are . . . this helps us to be fairer and compassionate with ourselves and with others.

It is such a beautiful way of being to look at every person in your life this way . . . to remember that everyone has layers upon layers in his or her story.

Let’s give each other grace. Let’s not take things personally and try to always imagine that others are doing the best they can in their own personal battles.

As you go along, give yourself the same grace. Being a human being is not easy . . . but life can be so much more joyful when we live this way.

You are so very loved.
