‘This Is it”star Chrissy Metz has been candid about her struggle in the business
— fighting hard to get a steady gig, going on only two auditions a year, and always finding herself among “the same small group of girls.”
Now, thanks to the show, she’s in a much happier, brighter place, and is spreading her message of hope and positivity everywhere she goes.
In her latest endeavor, the 36-year-old has written a letter to her teen self for this year’s People’s World’s Most Beautiful issue, and it’s a beautiful dose of inspiration.
“Hey, Girl, Hey,” she begins the note, which was published in People’s Most Beautiful issue. “You are just as important and beautiful as Amy, the most gorgeous cheerleader in your entire school, even if your hair isn’t the perfect natural shade of honey blonde or because your clothes aren’t from Guess or that your curves look VERY different from hers.”
She continued, “Contrary to the bill of goods you’ve been sold, life is not a competition. Stop comparing yourself to anyone or anything. We are all on our own journey and YOU are the driver. There will be bumps in the road, detours to be taken and pit stops will have to be made, but you’ve got to fill ‘er up and keep going. You will lose your map, but never your intuition.”
nd her advice only gets better.
“Allow every smile, frown and town you drive through to open your mind, but never close your heart,” she added. “One day you will appreciate the upgrade of that cruise control but never take your eye off that winding road you have paved by being courageously you!”
