There’s nothing wrong with wearing nice clothes or getting your hair and makeup done, but those things can be enjoyed even more if we can first feel beautiful on the inside.
You have stood your ground. For that, you should be proud. You are still here, safe and intact.
I truly hope that in your sweet silent despair, you become quiet enough to hear life speaking to you.
I learned that the shitty things that happened to me are actually things my soul asked for. So I can’t stay mad at what the universe delivered for what I put out as an order in the first place.
I belong in my own world. Even if it’s lonely at times, I choose freedom over bending my true self backwards to fit a mold I was never meant to fit in in the first place.
