I DARE YOU | Becky Handley dares us to believe in ourselves.

Fiction

by Becky Handley

I dare you,

To accept who you are,

To know your worth,

And feel sympathy for those for can’t see it.

I dare you,

To take time out to care for yourself,

To relax and unwind,

To let things go,

To eat well,

To shower,

To brush your teeth,

I dare you,

To accept that some days these feel like impossible tasks.

And to celebrate the smallest of wins.

I dare you

To stand up for yourself,

To fight for what you believe in,

And to know your voices matter even when it shakes.

I dare you,

To know if you can’t speak up,

We still see you.

We still know.

I dare you,

To just be,

Just be you,  

In all your glory.

And to know that you are enough.

I dare you.

I dare me.
