You Can Always Build Yourself Up Again

  • 0
Taylor Bryant

You can always build yourself up again. You can always wash away the dirt in your eyes and remember how you used to see yourself before the world polluted your vision — before the world polluted your heart.

You can always start over. It starts by forgiving yourself then remembering your potential. The potential you have to do great things. The potential you have to learn more about the things you’re passionate about and the potential you have to shine.

You can always heal. You heal by realizing that it’s not always you. You fell for the wrong people. You didn’t know what you wanted. You confused infatuation for love. You fell in love with the idea of someone. You can always heal when you remember that you’re not hard to love, you just fell for people who couldn’t understand you and people who were incapable of loving anyone — not just you.

You can always change. You don’t have to keep living the same old story. You don’t have to play the victim anymore just because you’re comfortable with that role. You can always change your act. You can start winning instead of losing. You can start doing instead of dreaming. You can start believing in yourself instead of doubting your existence. You can always find your purpose. You can always find your calling.

You can always make a different choice. Whether it’s the way you choose to see things or the way you choose to react to everything that’s happening to you. You have a choice to change your faith and start looking deeper into what the universe is trying to tell you. You have a choice to find the blessings in your hardships and your battles. You have a choice to use all what life has thrown at you and make something beautiful. You can turn your pain into beautiful art.

The truth is we have a choice not to remain broken or damaged forever but too often, we just give up too soon. We give up on ourselves. We wait for things to work themselves out. We wait for people to heal us. We wait for a miracle to happen so we can change our lives but sometimes these miracles are already inside us.

Our ability to revive our souls, mend our hearts and cleanse our minds. The strength to let go of a life we were so attached to or people who were wrong for us. The compassion to forgive ourselves and start loving ourselves again so we can live a healthier and more mindful life. The hope that there’s a better life awaiting us even if the odds are against us. This is our miracle. This is how we fight for our lives. This is how we protect ourselves from the things that are trying to destroy us. TC mark

This Book Will Help You Let Go

“They think you’re mine and I’m yours. They think there’s a love story going on behind closed doors. They think it’s only a matter of time before someone tells them the truth they’ve been waiting to hear.

We roll our eyes when they joke about us being an item; we laugh at how ridiculous they’re being. But deep inside, I’m crying. I’m crying because what you’re taking as a joke is what I wish could be real.”

Cut yourself some slack. One of the biggest regrets most people have about their 20s is that they didn’t enjoy them more. And I’m not talking about “buy more expensive dinners, take another trip to Thailand” type of enjoyment. I mean having the ability to take a deep breath and sip coffee in the morning knowing that you have done, and are doing, your best.

“These essays are slowly changing my life, as the title promises. As my friends’ birthday come along, they will all be receiving a copy of this wonderful book.” – Janie
