Sometimes, all anyone needs is reassurance. Reassurance that they will be accepted, reassurance that their hair looks okay, reassurance that it is okay to cry when times are tough, and reassurance that they will make it through the day without being laughed or teased at. Most of the time, you are left standing alone to fend for yourself. But promise me this, tomorrow take five seconds to stop and reassure someone that it is going to be alright. Give a person hope, encouragement, and reassurance that they are perfect the way they are, and that for no reason should they change to become anyone different than themselves. Who knows, you might just change someone’s life.

The author's comments:
I really want you to promise me this. Someday you might just change a persons life.
