Meaning of you in the sentence


Motivational poster

I believe in love and hope.
In jamming out by yourself in your room.
I believe in having someone tell you
You're beautiful.
I believe in miracles.
I believe in smiling until your cheeks hurt
and laughing until you cry.
But above all... I believe in God
and His unfailing Love.

What is the meaning of you here? I guess you here refers to you all....

In very formal English, people use the word one to mean people in general.

One should always be polite
People in general should always be polite

In informal English, people use the word you in the same way, meaning people in general. I think that is the intended meaning in this collection of maxims.

I believe in smiling till your cheeks hurt
I believe that people in general should smile until their cheeks hurt.
