I don’t believe in you. At least, I’m not going to say I do anymore.
Because it’s not quite true. Or, at the very least it is quite incomplete. There is much more to the statement that just doesn’t seem to be covered with the simple I believe in you.
It’s important too. Because there are going to be some pretty serious realities you are going to have to face head on. Those people who don’t have your best interests at heart, those voices in your head that tell you that you can’t do it, the self-doubt and insecurities we all face.
And, if you’re going to have any chance in overcoming them, you’re going to need to know the truth.
The truth is, I’m not enough. More than that, I’m not the only one. I am part of a much bigger group, a team of people, an army of individuals both known and unknown. All of those people that have been influenced, and all of those people waiting to be influenced, by you.
They have convinced me of the truth.
I don’t believe in you.
We Believe In You.
And saying anything less might give you a false sense of reality.
We are all of the people you have affected. Those you’ve helped, those you’ve touched, those who have seen your brilliance and those who have been inspired by your actions. And, let me tell you, that’s quite a lot of people. Perhaps more than you realize.
We are your cheering squad, your team, your support group, your family. We are all of those that love you, have loved you, and will soon love you. We are those that believe in you, have believed in you, and are waiting to believe in you. And you can be we won’t give up, because we remember your belief in us.
So, when I slip up, when I incorrectly say I believe in you. Know that it is simply not true. Know that my words have gotten away from me and that, whether I remember the words or not, I speak for all of us. And we believe in you.
We might not always be able to get to you when you need us.
But, please understand, We still believe in you.
You might not be able to hear us, see us, or have us there when you need us.
But, please believe, We believe in you.
