You Are Allowed To Leave Any Story You Aren’t Happy In

You are allowed to leave any story you don’t love yourself in. Leave any story in which you know you will never find your worth and your value.

You are allowed to leave a story that will make you believe that you are hard to love and your flaws and imperfections are the things that will define your totality. You are allowed to quit the job that you hate, that you don’t find fulfilling, that does not match the potential and the creativeness you have within.

You are allowed to search for something that will embrace your talents and feed the passion that you are always looking for. You are allowed to let toxic friends go. You are allowed to get away from all the negativity and false pretenses.

You are allowed to surround yourself with positivity, acceptance and, most of all, love. Remember that you do not have to please anybody. You do not have to be somebody else just to meet their standards and the qualifications they set. Live freely — life is so much better once you let it go.

You are allowed to leave half-given love. Remember that there will always be someone who will surely and confidently tells you they love you. There will be someone who will never give up on you no matter how difficult situations may be. There will always be someone who will never let you sleep doubting where you stand in their lives.

You are allowed to set yourself free from all your own expectations. You are allowed to move forward when things don’t fall into place; you are allowed to stand up once again from all the failures and unmet opportunities you let go.

You are allowed to forgive your past. You are allowed to forgive yourself for breaking, for all the mistakes. You are allowed to have second chances, and you are allowed to make a better change.

You are allowed to leave. You are allowed to change your direction and start over. You are allowed to make new discoveries and dive head-first into the wonderful things ahead.

Leaving can be good. Leaving can sometimes save you from staying stuck in all the wrong places. Leaving opens a new door for growth, transitions and self-discoveries. Leaving gives you a chance to look for the things that will make you genuinely happy, that will help you find places where you truly belong.

You can leave. Tou always have the choice to change your story. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
