You can’t control anyone other than yourself. You can give them your opinion and try to talk sense into them, but at the end of the day, their decisions are their own. You have no power over them.
You are growing each and every day. You are gradually blossoming into a different version of yourself — and this will continue to happen throughout your entire life. So don’t feel like an imposter if your thoughts and opinions and desires have shifted over time. That’s what is supposed to happen.
If you’re having a hard time relaxing and enjoying the moment, you aren’t alone. It’s difficult to clear your mind. It’s hard to convince yourself you deserve a break. But it’s okay to rest. You’re allowed to take a breather. You don’t want to burn out.
Although you care about your loved ones more than anything else, you cannot allow your own needs to fall to the sidelines. You won’t be able to be there for your friends and family unless you take care of yourself. You need to treat yourself like a priority. You need to keep yourself healthy mentally and physically.
You have your entire life ahead of you. You don’t need to rush into something you aren’t ready to face. You’re allowed to take baby steps. You are allowed to move slowly. You might not reach your milestones this year, but you can always reach them next year.
Your past doesn’t define you. It doesn’t determine what the future is going to hold, either. You can’t sit around, expecting history is going to repeat itself. If you put in the effort, then your future will be bright. You can achieve your dreams — but first, you have to start believing in yourself.
It’s normal to experience sadness every now and then. It’s normal to feel lost and confused at times. But it’s not okay for miserable to be your permanent state of mind. If you’re constantly feeling off, you need to take action. You need to talk to someone. You need to reach out for help. Because you deserve to be happy.
You might be fearless — but you aren’t invincible. You need to be careful with your choices. You need to take good care of yourself. You don’t want to make an impulsive, spur-of-the-moment decision that ends up hurting you in the long-run. Think things through. Be smart about your actions.
You matter. Your life has meaning. Maybe someone else has tried to make you feel bad about yourself, or maybe your own brain has been fooling you into feeling useless, but it’s not true. You are beautiful. You are strong. You belong.
You can’t change your life without changing your everyday actions. You need to start small and work your way up. Remember, you’re in control of your own path. You get to choose your own future. You have all that power. Use it wisely.
Your career does not define you. Your relationship status does not define you. The amount of money you make does not define you. Your actions, your kindness, your soft heart, your beautiful mind. Those are the things that truly define you.
You deserve the same type of love and care you’ve been giving to your friends and family. You need to stop treating yourself like an enemy and start treating yourself more like a friend. Be kind to yourself. Treat yourself. Love yourself.
