A matter of proof

In the midth of difficult times, I have chosen to share some of the "Letters to Myself" that I have written in recent years. They are about the inner dialogues that probably anybody knows in some form, revolving around the themes of motivation and self-empowerment. I'm dedicating them to a remarkable woman having the unique ability to share strength wrapped into joy. 

This is No. 1.

Dear self.

Your esteem sources my dignity.

Your judgment defines my worth.

I can trust you to be just.
I must accept you to be relentless.

No pretense.

No guise.

No masquerade.

There is no way to fool you.

It is a matter of proof. 

You say:
Face fear!
Stand firm!
Defy resistance!
Bear up the pain!
Push through!
Goddamn it, get up and try again!

I will prove.
