One day you will tell
of how you overcame
what you went through and
it will become someone
else’s survival guide.

We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned,
so as to have the life that is waiting for us.
The old skin has to be shed
before the new one can come.

People talk about caterpillars becoming butterflies as though they just go into a cocoon, slap on wings and are good to go.
Caterpillars have go dissolve into a disgusting pile of goo to become butterflies.
So, if you’re a mess wrapped up in blankets right now, keep going.

Just because you’re struggling does not mean you’re failing.

If the mountain seems too big today then climb a hill instead.
If the morning brings your sadness, it’s ok to stay in bed.
If the day ahead weighs heavy and your plans feel like a curse,
There’s no shame in rearranging, don’t make yourself feel worse.
If a shower stings like needles and a bath feels like you’ll drown,
if you haven’t washed your hair for days, don’t throw away your crown.
A day is not a lifetime, a rest is not defeat.
don’t think of it as failure, just a quiet, kind retreat.
It’s ok to take a moment from an anxious, fractured mind,
the world will not stop turning while you get realigned.
The mountain will still be there when you want to try again,
you can climb it on your own time, just love yourself ”til thn

Not everyone will understand your journey. That’s fine.
It’s not their journey to make sense of. It’s yours.

Sometimes we need someone to simply be there …
not to fix anything or do anything,
but to just let us feel we are supported and cared about.
