“Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.” -Winston Churchill
To all of the people that said I couldn’t, to all of the people that said I didn’t matter, to all of the people who have ever wanted to see me fail, thank you. Thank you for doubting me.
You probably don’t remember the day you told me that I didn’t amount to anything, or the day where you said that I can’t do anything right. In fact, you might not even remember how you ever treated me, but I do.
See, your doubt has built up in my head for years. Telling me that I am fat, that I am stupid, or that I am ugly. It built up to the point where I actually used to believe you. But I am not mad at you, I do not blame you, but rather, I want to thank you. Thank you for doubting me.
I am going to go a little off kilter here, but I feel this message is important for everyone. No matter what it is that you do in your life, there are always going to be people that are going to doubt you. There are going to be those assholes that say you will never amount to anything, that you are going to fail, or that you don’t mean anything.
It might seem difficult to accept at the time, but trust me, you are stronger than any amount of doubt. You will overcome doubt, and you will achieve your dreams. How do I know? Because I am proof.
Thank you for doubting me. It made me stronger.
It has taken me a long time to realize this, but all of the times that you doubted me just added fuel to my internal fire. While I used to focus on what you thought or said about me, I have since matured. Matured to the point where I really don’t care what you say. I know my abilities, I know what I am capable of, and I know that I will achieve my dreams. Mainly, I know that I am enough. The belief that I have in myself is greater than any amount of your doubt.
Thank you for doubting me. It made me work harder.
You will have no idea what I am talking about because you were not there. When you questioned me, I questioned myself. I took what you said, and I worked hard to prove you wrong. At the same time, it also taught me a lot more. It taught me that as long as I work hard and put my mind to it, I can and will overcome any obstacle that I face in life, not just the bump that you tried to put up.
Thank you for doubting me. You showed me exactly who I don’t want to be.
What you used to do and how you acted now goes against all of my morales. You taught me exactly who I don’t want to become.
I don’t want to become someone who thinks that they are better than any other human. I don’t want to become someone who is negative all of the time. And I definitely don’t want to become someone who has no motivation to chase their dreams. I hate to wish negatively on anyone, but karma finally found you.
Thank you for doubting me. You helped me open my eyes.
You showed me that there are always going to be people in the world that are going to want to see me fail. No matter what it is that I do, you helped prepare me for any amount of doubt, negativity, and hatred.
Thanks to you, my eyes are opened. They are wide opened while chasing my dreams, overcoming any amount of doubt, and proving that I am stronger than any obstacle that stands in my way.
And lastly, thank you for doubting me. You pushed me closer to those who actually care about me.
If it weren’t for you, I don’t know if I would have the relationships that I do today. You made me feel unwelcome and unwanted. To the point where I spent my free time with only my family. But guess what, they are the ones that truly care about me and helped me to find my strengths.
Thanks to you, not only are my parents just my parents, or my sisters just my sisters, but they are also my best friends. They have brought out the light in me, and they have helped to shape me into the loving, strong, and outgoing person that I am today. So thank you.
I know that this might seem passive-aggressive, or even straight out aggressive, but it’s sincere. Never in my life have I been happier with who I am as a person. Never have I been more motivated to achieve my dreams. And more importantly than all, never have I loved life more than I do right now. Believe it or not, I am actually happy that you doubted me. By pushing me towards what matters in my life, you have also played a large part of all of the good that I have. So again, thank you for doubting me.
