What I Would Tell My 17 Year Old Self (MRKH Edition)

Lindsey McFarland

Sweet sweet girl, as if being 15 wasn’t hard enough, your whole world is about to be turned upside down. The second you walk into the hospital, you’re going to thrown into the middle of an emotional hurricane, but the important thing to know is that it doesn’t drown you.

Sure, you may struggle to keep your head above water as you tread through anger, confusion, and despair, but it will make you so much stronger. You will question so many things about yourself and you will struggle to come to terms with how your beautiful (yes, beautiful) body was created. Just because you were born different, doesn’t make you less than. This difference will make you take a good look inside yourself to find out exactly who you were meant to be.

You will make so many mistakes, and yes kiss too many frogs, but please please remember how worthy you are to be loved by others, but more importantly to love yourself. It may take you awhile to truly accept that, but keep that reminder there in your heart.

And beautiful girl, when the times are hard and you want to scream and cry, do it. But at the end, remember….you are a WARRIOR!
