"Sometimes allowing yourself to cry is the scariest thing you’ll ever do. And the bravest, It takes a lot of courage to face the facts; stare loss in the face; bare your heart, and let it bleed. But it is the only way to cleanse your wounds and prepare them for healing. GOD will take care of the rest. “
“Dear Self, I know you struggle sometimes but just in case I don’t tell you enough, you’re beautiful. Thank you for being so strong and transparent. The world sees you even when you feel invisible. I appreciate your heart and your stubbornness. Your willingness to love even after being discarded and forgotten is admirable. I am so proud to know that you’ve grown to acknowledge your worth.
“Let today be the day you love yourself enough to no longer just dream of a better life; let it be the day you act upon it.”
“The hardest lesson you will ever learn will be to love yourself. But you can do it. There will always be days when you hate yourself, days when you wish you had never been born. But darling, you are beautiful, and if Shakespeare had met you, you would’ve inspired his 18th sonnet, and if Monet had known you, he would’ve given up painting water lilies and chosen to paint you instead. I know it’s hard to love yourself, but sometimes it’s okay to be a little selfish with your love..
When you begin to feel worthless, remember that the stars died for you. You are made of elements that are thousands of years old, elements that make up every atom of your being. When you want to cut your wrists, remember that the souls of stars live in your veins. Don’t kill them.
Live for the life you always wanted but were too scared to pursue.
Live for you. Live for me. Live for every person who has ever loved you, for the people who have come before you, so that you may be here today.
Live for the fire that burns in your soul, that tells you: keep going, you’re almost there, just a little farther.
“Life is not perfect
It’s a place of pain,
a place of shame,
a place of danger,
and maybe a place of joy.
No, life is not perfect,
And it doesn’t matter what aspect.
Some times it’s a sunset and a sunrise,
Or the blue skies,
Or a prize in disguise,
But sometimes it’s also sour,
A wail and a roar,
With no one to implore.
Life is a test.
It throws problems at us
And waits for us to crumble,
under the distress,
And looks as we struggle,
And gathers the pieces that are left,
But if we look at it differently,
We can carry on brilliantly,
It’s just a matter of will power,
And being courageous,
A matter of refusing to be a coward,
and facing what is dangerous,
Life doesn’t throw problems at us,
to see us lose hope,
No, it expects us to become strong,
It doesn’t expect us to mope
Life is like a teacher,
It teaches a lesson,
That whatever the situation,
Life must go on
Time won’t stop,
And wait for you to gain hope
No, it’ll carry on,
And let you mope,
Time can’t be reversed,
No amount of crying will change the situation,
So stop thinking that your life is cursed,
Because life must go on…”
“When we worry about someone we send them a secret message – I don’t believe in you. When we worry about our life, we send ourselves a secret message – I don’t believe in me.”
so stop worrying and believe in yourself :)
“There is never a moment when God is not in control. Relax! He’s got you covered.”
"you fall, you rise, you make mistakes, you live, you learn. You’re human, not perfect. You’ve been hurt but you are alive. Think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive-to breathe, to think, to enjoy and to chase the things you love. Sometimes there is sadness in our journey but there is also lots of beauty. We must keep putting one foot in front of the other even when we hurt for we never know what is waiting for us just around the bend."
