We all often times look for someone to fill the other half of our heart. We look for someone to save us, but what we don’t realize is that we are our own superheroes every day. We don’t need saving.

2. You realize that you are only human, and that sometimes the day is just too much.

3. You know that saying no doesn’t make you a terrible person.

4. You’ve been through hell, but you still smile everyday.

5. You always put your hand out for others.

6. You always forgive, but you never forget.

7. You are cautious with who you give your heart to.

8. You protect the people you love with everything you have, and you’d give up everything to keep them safe.

9. You embrace your emotions, even if they’re a bit erratic at times.

10. You don’t find it weak to express incredible amounts of gratitude.

11. You give out hugs without question.

20. You give yourself time.

21. You understand that you’re going to have days where you don’t get anything done and can barely get out of bed, and you acknowledge that.

22. You know that the bad days are going to come, but you still get up, dress up, and show up.

23. You never walk out on your life.

24. You always keep your head up and eyes open.

25. You know not to blink or you’ll miss something beautiful.

You are your own superhero.

You are powerful. You are important. You are incredible. TC mark

You are not broken, you’re becoming

How they make you feel
says a lot about them
and nothing about you.

Trust me when I say someone who makes you question
if you are worthy of being loved
is not worthy of being loved by you.
