Written by on August 7, 2023

As 13-year-old Jacksen Proell was on his way with his friends to grab snacks from a gas station, something came over him. He saw a doorbell camera and decided to leave a positive message for the homeowner.

And the wisdom he gave in this message is not only inspiring, but wise beyond his 13 years.

According to CBS News:

“You matter, all right? There’s always gonna be someone that cares about you. And you’re a good person. No matter what people say, you matter,” he said. “Whoever you are, you matter to someone. Just keep that in mind. Don’t forget that.”

The homeowner, Ashley Mann saw the video and thought someone else may need to hear Jacksen’s words of encouragement and posted the clip to TikTok where it immediately went viral. Check out the full video below.
