Dear Little Sister...Where do I fit in?

Dear Little Sister,

Tell me this is on your mind as much as it's on mine! Yep. That's right, I've had a huge problem with fitting in. It may not look like it, but I constantly struggle with this.  It's so hard to fit in, especially when you are in school. 


I can remember not quite being apart of one specific group at school. I remember walking the halls looking for someone who looked like me. But for a long time, I couldn't find anywhere where I belonged. I was always too emotional, too loud, or too awkward.

Let me tell you something though. The enemy is always going to feed you this lie over and over again. He is going to try to tell you that "You are alone." And this can keep you from wanting to make friends! So  Never.Ever. Believe it! You and I are going to fight this together. So here are 4 lies that you'll hear in your life. 

1. You're "Too Much" for people 

If you laugh loud-laugh louder! If you smile "too much", smile brighter! If someone says you're "too much", it means they weren't made to love you. It doesn't mean that they are bad. It doesn't mean You are bad. It just means you weren't made to be friends. You are exactly who you are supposed to be right.now. Don't let anyone tell you differently! 


2.You aren't  Enough 

Hahahahahahhahahhaha oh my gosh this one is so ridiculous sometimes. I won't lie, I hear this lie often in my head. "If you were prettier, smarter, thinner, more athletic, had more of a backbone, then-" No. Don't finish that sentence. Don't finish that thought.
