To The Girl Who Is Struggling, This Is For You

To The Girl Who Is Struggling, This Is For You

Sometimes we get stuck in a rut and we need some encouragement. This one’s for you.

To the girl who feels invisible, understand that you’re not. Understand that someone’s lack of seeing you doesn’t mean you don’t exist. Understand that sometimes the people we think know us best, simply don’t know us at all. Understand that their validation can only keep you afloat for so long and soon you’ll need more. Understand the only person responsible for really seeing you is you.

To the girl that tries hard but feels like she’s getting nowhere. Keep working and learning. Everyone has their time.

To the girl who feels like a mess. It’s okay to feel chaotic and forget up from down, endure the storm you’ll find your way back.

To the girl who’s scared of love. Living a loving life is a rewarding journey. Learn to embrace it and your perceptions will shift.

To the girl who’s always there for everyone else, learn to say no and re-learn what makes you happy. You’ve been so accustomed to the activities and ways of others you have forgotten that you too were placed on the earth to smile your brightest smile.

To the girl who feels like she doesn’t belong, YOU DO. Focusing on why you don’t belong here will have you missing out on why you do.

To the girl that’s heartbroken, it’ll get easier. Cry it out, be mad, and take this experience as a redirection and not rejection.

To the girl who has social anxiety, it won’t always be this way. Envisioning yourself without social anxiety has to be tough but you can work on it with time and practice.

To the girl who doesn’t love herself, loving yourself is the best gift you can give to you. Start small and pick out something you like about you. From there keep building, love.

To the girl who feels alone, you aren’t. I think we tend to focus on who we don’t have and forget the people standing right in front of us. Reach out a hand to your loved ones and walk away from those who can’t appreciate you the way you deserve.

To the girl who’s too depressed to get out of bed, take it one day at a time. Eating for that day is an accomplishment try to do 1 thing a day to get back on your feet. It’ll come.

To the girl who’s talented but thinks she’s not good enough. You are good enough, you won’t be able to excel if you don’t continue to try.

To the girl who feels trapped by life, you can always make another decision. It’s up to you.

To the girl who can’t remember what joy feels like, it’s inside you don’t stop fighting for it.

To the girl who’s even sick of fighting, you’re almost through the chaos. Keep the faith.

To the girl who doesn’t fit in, don’t force it and don’t change. The people that belong in your life will welcome you into their lives with open arms.

To the girl who’s struggling in general, I’m here for you. You’re strong, I know you’ll get through whatever is bringing you down.

The mind can be tricky. One day we feel like we’ve overcome our demons and the next day their staring us dead in our eyes. The key is to keep encouraging things around you to keep your mind focused on the positives. There are inspirational videos I watch on a consistent basis so I don’t slip back into the person I’ve worked so hard to no longer be. I also use meditation quite often to better understand myself as well as set intentions for how I want to live out my life. I know it seems hard right now, but I support you, I got you.
