The truth is we outgrow those who don’t appreciate us. Those who are okay with our absence. Those who allow the distance between us and them to grow. We outgrow those who make us feel like we’re replaceable.
You glow differently when you’re not scared of pain, when you’re not ashamed of your scars, when you’ve found a way to accept the pain and you’re not ashamed to tell your story.
Because the universe also reminds you of who you were when you were with them and you weren’t yourself and it reminds you that even though they look different now, they’re still very much the same.
I am admitting that I may be emotionally unavailable, that I still need time to heal.
Boundaries reflect your values and your character and they give people a choice to either act right or leave.
It comes to fix what you broke. It comes to heal you.
It’s time to stop apologizing for your heart. For the way you feel everything so deeply.
Because self-love looks better on you than self-loathe. Self-love looks better on you than self-pity.
I’m slowly learning how to let that fear go; the fear of shaking my stability, the fear of things falling apart, the fear of short-lived happiness, the fear of the low after the high.
Maybe the things that don’t work the way you want them to or the prayers that go unanswered are all God’s way of saving you.
