Need a break from reading the news and howling "whyyyyyyyy" into your TV? This emotional video from The Scene, which features dads reading affirmations they wrote with their young daughters, is the spa visit your soul so desperately needs.

The video was inspired by personal trainer Ron Alston, whose pep talk for his 3-year-old daughter, Aliya, went viral earlier this year. "I am strong. I am smart. I work hard. I am beautiful,” says Aliya in the original video, which made the whole internet cry.

Now, prepare to cry all over again:


It feels good to cry over something happy and hopeful, for a change, doesn't it?

And remember, even if you don't have a dad, or if your dad is the type who only speaks to you to scold you for dropping out of law school, you are strong. You are brave. You are loved. Love, me (your new dad)
