A duck looks calm and mild-mannered while gliding on the surface of the water, yet is paddling frantically below the surface where you can’t see, just to stay afloat in water. Now, it would not be wrong to call teens possessing a replica of ducks these days on social media.
“You are kind. You are beautiful. You are strong. You are worthy. You are special. You are loved. You are needed. You are capable. You are enough. You are important. You are the best!”, said the thread of posts I saw on Instagram yesterday and these easy phrases seem to have engulfed me in an aura of self-worth and appreciation. I feel I have progressed a bit more than yesterday; a bit more gleeful, a bit more assertive and a bit more resilient than yesterday.
