Have you ever taken a foil wrapper off something and smoothed it out? Same with scrunching up a piece of paper into a ball, only to realise you've needed it and then smooth it out with your hand to put away safe? Never underestimate the soothing and smoothing power of human touch. A hug, or even just the placing of a hand on yours can give more than you can ever imagine. Just like a smoothed out piece of paper, we will carry the scars of what happened, but it will not stop us from being us - if we don't want it to.
There will always be those who will be out to try and crumple up others and dismiss them like a crumpled piece of paper. These people never look past the end of their own short sightedness. Just because they can utter harsh words, or administer harsh actions, it doesn't mean they can get the better of you - or of anyone.
We've all heard the saying of pick yourself up and dust yourself down? How about we change that to pick yourself up, smooth yourself out and carry on with being the most amazing person you are and can be.
No matter what the world throws at you, know that even the must crumpled ball of paper can be smoothed out.
