Unscramble the Blue Letters

But I want to tell them that all of this is just debris left over when we finally decide to smash all the things we thought we used to be, and if you can't see anything beautiful about yourself, get a better mirror, look a little closer, stare a little logenr, because there's something inside you that made you keep trying despite everyone who told you to quit. You built a cast around your broken herat and signed it yourself, "They were wrong." Because maybe you didn't belong to a gurop or a clique. Maybe they decided to pick you last for basketball or everything. Maybe you used to bring bruises and bkeron teteh to show-and-tell, but never told, because how can you hold your ground if everyone around you wants to bury you beneath it? You have to believe that they were wrong. They have to be wrong. Why else would we still be here?
