I settled because I was rushing the process and I thought, “This is what you’re supposed to do.” I was wrong, though, because there is so much more to life than just co-existing with another person.
I’m newly alone and have been mourning over change, but today is the day I stop because my world isn’t falling apart, it’s coming together.
Your self-talk is important. You can tell yourself all day you’re smart, but if you call yourself an idiot every other moment, does it really mean anything?
The great thing about life is that you can literally be whoever you want.
Something I need you to know is that I’m afraid.
The day I lost my mom was a day that something in me went with her.
The future is so terrifying, so stop thinking about it so much. Be present, be mindful, but most importantly, just take your time.
I want you to know how brave you are because I know it’s not easy.
I made friends with myself by accepting what was in front of me and treating the reflection I’ve fought for so long with dignity.
At almost 25, I tell myself I should be somewhere else. I should be living on my own, with a higher paying job, my loans paid off, and have a solid career.
