Ebonee Davis penned an amazing letter about living your truth and being authentic, and we’re listening

We’ll admit it: it isn’t always easy to live your truth. Being your most authentic self is hard for many of us, and sometimes we just need a boost that says that who we are authentically is just fine. And today, model and activist Ebonee Davis just reminded us of the real reason that we love her so much: because of her honesty. She shared an incredible letter on Instagram this morning about how to cherish your authentic self, and it’s truly a work of art. It’s just what we needed to hear, and we’re sending her nothing but love.

In the letter, Davis wrote,

"I don't want to have to be brave to live my truth and you shouldn't have to be either. Why have we made it so unsafe for people to be who they are and share what they're going through?"


When it comes down to it, she explained,

"Our judgements and prejudices have forced people into silence, to deal with their problems alone. Imagine how our stories could inspire those around us if we all began to share."


She continued,

"We are all survivors of something, no matter who you are and where you come from. We have to stop making each other feel so alone in this world. "


Finally, she said,

"So many of us share common experiences. Let's be a support system for one another instead of judging one another. Let's be compassionate and realize we are all going through something. You could change someone's life and give them the strength to make it through their darkest days."


Just, like, yes. It’s such a breath of fresh air. Ebonee Davis continues to seriously inspire us with her good heart and her drive to be her most authentic self and create a community of caring, loving individuals. We’re taking notes, and truly cheering her on.
