I’m slowly learning to let it be. To take deep breaths when I’m faced with conflict, to remind myself that I’m only human, and I will try and fail and still not be any less.
With you, I realize it’s not about what you need. It’s not about who you want me to be. It’s not about molding myself to fit into your arms. It’s not about making you happy at the cost of losing myself.
You are loved in your light, in your dark, and in every shadow in-between
I always do this, don’t I God? I always forget that you’re the one with the road map, the navigation, the airbags and seat belts. You’re the one watching over me, guiding me, reminding me, again and again, that I don’t have to do this alone.
You value the relationships that you do have, instead of focusing on the ones you don’t.
Someone that truly loves you won’t have to spew angry words when things don’t work out as planned. They won’t be so quick to say you aren’t worthy of love; they will be that love, rather than force you to look for it elsewhere.
The ones we love and lose don’t leave us. They don’t fade. They don’t just disappear into the fabric of our pasts; they are intricately woven in, permanently and beautifully.
You learn that you aren’t, and won’t ever be, defined by someone else’s perspective of you.
God, remind me that even on the days when I feel so lost or small, you are standing beside me, showing me that in your eyes, I am powerful. I am strong. I am worthy.
Find someone who puts passion into your soul. Whose every word is captivating, and who hangs on every syllable that falls from your lips.
