For reasons that are usually far beyond our control, sometimes bad things happen to incredible people.
When you start to forgive yourself, you start to believe in your potential to reach all of your dreams.
You were never the person I needed you to be. And I know it won’t be easy, but nothing worth doing ever is. But I will learn to take things slowly.
Hasn’t anyone ever told you it’s lonelier to waste your time and rent out your body to someone who doesn’t know your worth than it is to be alone? You deserve to be more than an afterthought. Stop getting ready “just in case.” You are all you need to fill all the empty space.
The moment you accept that, at one point or another, you will fuck up in life, is the moment you can allow yourself a chance to breathe. It is the moment you give yourself the opportunity to grow and learn along the way.
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.
This is a micro-skill. Training the audience to do what you want them to do. To have fun and laugh at your humor. To be a success right there on the stage.
We perceive pain as weakness but matter of fact is, going through pain and surviving is proof of strength and sustainability.
The truth is, sometimes we can be our biggest critic. We tell ourselves that we are not enough and we place ourselves on these intense timelines without allowing ourselves to process and live in the moment.
You can find a home anywhere.
