11. "3 Musketeers" has low self esteem

Look, I don't know if you guys have heard about this or not but 3 Musketeers has changed their recipe. No joke. They are now boasting a "New richer chocolate taste" as printed right on their little wrappers. Upon purchasing one last night, I confirmed that yes, it does taste more "chocolatey" than before. But it also made me a little sad.

Why did you think you needed to change, 3 Musketeers? Did you think it would make people love you more? Because I love you for YOU. Okay? You were perfect the way you were. And if someone is making you feel like you need to change yourself to make them happy, that person isn't someone you need in your life. We've all been there:

"Maybe if I was prettier he'd like me."
"Maybe if I didn't speak up for myself so much he'd want to be with me."
"Maybe if I tasted more chocolatey he'd never leave."

But these are statements that come from that little voice in your head that makes you feel like there's something wrong with you if someone doesn't like you. Did you ever think maybe there was actually something wrong with them? That their issues about commitment stem from themselves and that there's actually nothing you can do to change them? Listen to me when I say: you're not the problem.

3 Musketeers, just know that there are people out there who love you unconditionally. Don't try to make yourself smaller, richer or anything else just to garner someone's affection. The people who matter think you're great no matter what.
