Just be you

Just be you
The girl looked at her sister and said, “My sister, why are you looking to change yourself?”
Her sister looked at her, “I want to fit in.”
The girl laughed at her sisters in security. “My love, you are trying to be like everyone else, don’t you know you are perfect just the way you are?”
Her sister turned away from her and was silent for a while before she spoke, “It’s easier to be like everyone else then to be myself. If I be myself, people will make fun of me.”
The girl walked over to her sister and brushed the hair out of her face, “My dear sister, by being like everyone else you are not your own person. You are controlled by the world around you, but by being yourself you show that you are different.”
Her sister forced a small smile. “Nobody likes me for who I am, you see. I am nothing special to anyone. I’m not as pretty as the cheerleaders, or as smart as the advanced kids. I am just plain old me, who reads, write and keeps to herself.”
The girl looked up at the sky and spoke to her sister, “Sweet sister, don’t worry about who likes you and who doesn’t. In the end it won’t matter. You are special to me, love, doesn’t that count for something? I care for you and I love you. You are beautiful and smart and if people don’t see that, my sweet, they are missing out. You are not plain because you are yourself; you are a shining light, my sister that people chose not to see. If they knew you the way I know you, they would see just how remarkable you are.”
Her sister looked into her eyes as she spoke to her, “My dear sister, I don’t know what I would do without you, you see me in a way others do not and I am grateful to have you. You have shown me that it doesn’t matter who I am to other people as long as I like being me. I don’t have to change for anyone but myself. I am happy just being me and that’s all that matters.

I love you my sister.
