Dear Goodhearted Girl,

A difficult fact of life that we must learn to accept is that not everyone has the best intentions. Some people make mistakes, but others act in flat-out intentionally terrible ways that hurt and threaten to destroy us.

Not everyone has your best interests in mind. It is sad but true.

Brave Girls love everyone anyway, and forgive everyone anyway, but Brave Girls also protect themselves from destructive people and situations. Brave Girls stay in the light and make brave choices that keep them out of darkness. Brave Girls get back up when they have been hurt, and they move forward to help others who have been hurt, too.

Brave Girls Club - be brave enough to protect yourself

And you are brave. You can do it.

You are so very loved.
