Even with all your imperfections, allow someone to love you

Dear Ellie,

It is no secret that you are beautiful inside and out,
Intelligent, empathetic, God-fearing, honest to a fault and just lovely,
But you, my dear, just like everyone else, are not perfect.

Allow yourself, then, to make mistakes and to learn from them,
Allow yourself and others room to make mistakes so you never have unrealistic expectations,
So there is always room to grow, learn and unlearn.

And with this knowledge of your imperfections, allow a man to love you anyway,
Believe that good man when he says he loves you and stop asking him why,
With this knowledge of your imperfections, allow yourself to be loved anyway.
