You’re Allowed To Set Yourself Free

You’re allowed to be free. To set yourself free from the life that your parents want you to have. To set yourself free from the life that your friends want you to have. To set yourself free from what society wants of you.

You’re allowed to live the life that you want.

You don’t have to have that office job that you hate. You don’t have to live in your small hometown. You don’t have to be miserable. You don’t have to stay here. To stay in this place of hopelessness and of fear.

You’re allowed to set yourself free of all the expectations and the questions and the heartache. You’re allowed to set yourself free from the environment that is holding you back from your happiness. You’re allowed to set yourself free from everything that is killing you.

You only have one life. So don’t sit back and let it pass you by. Don’t sit back and rest in the blurriness and the restlessness. Don’t sit back and let life hurt you.

You’re allowed to do whatever makes your soul happy. So do it.

Give yourself permission to let go of all of the things that are holding you back. Give yourself permission to let go of the struggle and the setbacks and the familiar.

You’re allowed to set your heart free.

Set your heart free from the chaos. From the boy or girl who doesn’t love you anymore. Set your heart free from the sadness. From the grief. From the people who don’t know your worth. From the people that laugh at your talent. From the people who question your beauty.

Set yourself free from the life that you’re supposed to live. Set yourself free from the life that people expect you to live.

Be yourself. Do what your heart tells you to do. Do what you want, not what society wants from you. Do what makes your heart light up. Do what makes your heart sing. Do what makes your body dance. Do what makes your smile sparkle. Do what makes your heart beat faster.

You are so, so special. Don’t let other people dicticate your life. This life is yours. This universe is yours. Your heart is yours. Trust yourself. Have pride for yourself. Hug yourself. Doubt yourself and then feel inspired by yourself.

Love yourself. Love your flaws and imperfections and failure. Love all of it. And love all of you. TC mark
