My little me

little me

Have you heard the Little Mix song ‘little me’? The song goes ‘wish I knew back then, what I know now’. It’s about all the things you would like to tell your little me, the insecure little me.

I love the message of the video! We are beautiful and wonderful. But someone needs to tell you, so that you know. Little Mix sings the song for themselves, what they would have wanted to hear when they were little. Makes me wonder what I would tell myself.

I would probably start bij telling me to accept myself. To see me as a beautiful, special person. Not some sort of handicapped weirdo. I would tell myself that everyone is insecure, and that it’s ok. But also that it’s ok to let the insecurity go.

What would you tell your little me?
