Be gentle with your old self.
Go on those adventures. Meet people like you who aren’t afraid to be who they are. It’s time to be wildly free.
Stop crying slowly and let it go. Let the pain go. Let the hurt go. Let the past go. Let who you were go.
Protecting your heart by shutting people out won’t make you safe, just unhappy. Stop pretending you want this—or worse, need this.
You didn’t know yourself completely. You didn’t know.
