there is only one you

I was reading an article the other day, and a certain part of the article stood out to me. Probably because I struggle with my self worth, time to time.

Good night dear friends and hopefully you too will remember to never let anything put out the incredible light that is in you, and from time to time to... REFILL YOUR BUCKET!

"Always remember the outside of a person doesn't usually tell the whole story.
