(RNN) - We've all seen notes left on bathroom stall walls, but none as uplifting as the one found in a university bathroom that includes words like "worthy," "strong," "brave" and "loved." 

Someone anonymously posted a handwritten message responding to girls who had written about their suffering on the bathroom walls.

A Reddit user posted a photo of comforting messages that she found taped to the stall in a women's restroom at the university she's attending.

The user, chellylauren, wrote: "In a girls' bathroom stall at my university, girls have written about some of their most horrifying life experiences. This week, somebody replied."

The letter is addressed to several girls. Very first on the list is the girl who got raped, then the girl with an eating disorder, the girl with an alcoholic father, to the one who lost a loved one, and to all not named above.

The letter has been viewed more than 870,000 times.

The full text reads:

To the girl who was raped: You are so strong. I cannot fathom the pain you must have gone through. The fact that you have the bravery to write it (even on a bathroom wall) gives me hope.

To the girl with eating disorders: I promise you, although I don't know you, you are beautiful, you deserve your health. You deserve freedom from that hell.

To the girl with the alcoholic father: I am so sorry for the agony it must cause. Again, such courage is remarkable you must be such a strong person to see such pain.

To the girl whose father died: Missing them never goes away. The ache of their absence never goes away. But the love they had, the memories you share surely must last. I am sure, out of the bottom of my heart, the people who have left you in this world are exceptionally proud of the person you are.

Everytime I see these walls, these confessions, I feel so blessed to know I have the privilege of seeing them. Your moments, these secrets, are all precious even though they are sad. To all of you (including those I did not mention, and those who have not yet written)

  • You're worthy
  • You're strong
  • You are brave
  • You are loved
  • Somebody cares
