Boyfriend Criticizes Her For Not Being Good Enough, Her Open Letter Teaches Him A Lesson For Life

One of the most important things you will ever learn in life is how to be fully and unapologetically yourself. However, in a society  with lots of looming negativity, sometimes that can be quite a challenge. For one girl, she was dedicated to doing everything her boyfriend demanded, despite the fact he was never satisfied. It wasn’t until they were broken up that her eyes were opened.

She wrote an open letter explaining the changes she had gone through, and everything that she had learnt. We think the open letter is something everyone should read:

Boyfriend Criticizes Her For Not Being Good Enough, Her Open Letter Teaches Him A Lesson For Life

“You always told me
I didn’t look good with long hair and that you preferred girls with short
hair. So I kept my hair cut above my shoulders at all times.

You laughed at me
and told me I looked ridiculous when I dyed my hair red when we were
together. So a week later I dyed it back blonde.

You would always point out if I was wearing too much makeup. (Winged eyeliner and mascara most of the time). So I just stopped wearing it.

You told me tattoos and piercings were tacky and ugly and would try to take out my belly button ring every time you saw it. So I took out my piercings and didn’t get any more tattoos.

You pointed out my stretch marks every chance you got. So I did my best to keep them hidden. You pointed out every single flaw I had. So I lost every bit of confidence I had.

I did everything I
could to be what you wanted. I did everything you told me to do. It still
wasn’t good enough. You left me for a younger prettier girl. Someone you could
mold and shape into what you wanted. Like you tried to do with me. And up until
a few months ago, I blamed myself for everything that happened. You blamed me
too.

But finally, I
started to see the truth. You weren’t out of my league. I was out of yours. I
wasn’t the one who wasn’t good enough for you. You were the one who wasn’t good
enough for me. You couldn’t accept me for who I was. When I took you the way
you were.

So now here I am a few months later. My hair is past my shoulders. My hair is bright red. I’ve got a new tattoo. New piercings. Started wearing makeup again. I eat whatever I want whenever I want and weigh 135 pounds. I still have my stretch marks.

And I’ve finally
gotten my confidence back. I finally see myself looking back at me when I look
in the mirror.

It’s so hard for me
to come out about this and admit that I became so vulnerable because of one
guy. Something I always said would never happen. It’s humiliating to even think
about how low I got. But what gives me the guts to come out about this is the
fact that I overcame it and I’m finally back to who I really am. – Feeling
free.”

Always remember
that you are made in the image and likeness of God and you are just perfect the
way you are.

Fedex Driver Shovels Snow Off Woman’s Porch When He Learns Her Husband Recently Died

Published

Leigh Anne’s husband had just passed away after fighting cancer for seven months at the age of 42. This left her with three young children to raise on her own as a single mother and widow.

In the middle of winter, after a pretty nasty snowstorm, the cold had deflated her tyres. Leigh Anne tried putting air back in her tires but found it too hard to remove the cap on her tyres, meaning she could not be able to refill them. Luckily she noticed Brian making a nearby call.

Brian is a friendly local delivery driver with FedEx who she had seen around her neighborhood and had even delivered a few packages to Leigh Anne a couple of times before.

Brian was happy and kind enough to help out with her tyres. As the two were chatting, Brian got to learn of Leigh Anne’s heartbroken state and her husband’s recent death.

Brian knew he had to do something to help her out. There was enough pain and stress in her life already, and there was just a small something he could do to make things a little better for her.

After helping Leigh Anne fix her car tyres and helping her back into her house, the FedEx driver quickly grabbed a shovel and got to work. He had noticed all the snow covering her porch and decided to help.

The doorbell camera captured Brian’s act of kindness, as he shovelled the snow off Leigh Anne’s porch and pathway to help her out. “Doorbell cameras don’t only catch people stealing packages,” Leigh Anne wrote on Facebook.

Brian’s kindness and thoughtfulness melted the hearts of thousands who saw the footage after it was shared on social media. God bless this man.

An elderly Kansas woman says it’s a miracle that she and her husband are alive after a bullet was fired into her home, all thanks to a framed photo of the Lord’s Prayer that saved them both.

Constance Effie said she had just sat down to watch some television in the living room of her Kansas City home when she heard an explosion-like sound. Her husband was also home at the time.

“All of a sudden ‘boom.’ I thought I was in a war zone because that was the loudest noise I ever heard,” Effie told WDAF.

The seventy year old woman said she then realized that someone had opened fire outside, leading to one of the bullets flying into her house. But instead of hitting her, the bullet hit a framed photo of the Lord’s Prayer that was hanging only two feet above her head.

“We looked all around and didn’t see a hole anywhere. I thought, ‘Look, that picture, the glass is all broken,'” she said. “It hit [the picture] and fell down behind [the couch]. But if it didn’t have the metal, it probably would’ve come on in and hit one of us.”

Effie believes God blocked the bullet from hurting them. She said the next day she had to be taken to the hospital where doctors told her that she had suffered a minor heart attack because of the scary ordeal.

“I was afraid after the near-death incident. I kept thinking I don’t want any more shooting,” Effie said, adding she constantly hears gunshots in her neighborhood. “The doctors said it looked like it was a stress heart attack but that it was a small one.”

“We’re lucky to be alive, and we’re happy,” Effie said. “We just hope and pray they understand not to do this anymore.”

Kansas City police are still investigating the shooting and have not identified the suspects yet.
