I am slowly learning that my feelings deserve to be expressed, that my emotions deserve to be felt. I am slowly learning that my thoughts matter.
Learning And Growing
This is me setting myself free from the picture-perfect life I once wanted to live. This is me learning that maybe my picture was out of focus.
Gemini: You are slowly becoming more confident in yourself. You are not criticizing your reflection as much. You are not blaming yourself for every little thing that goes wrong. You are slowly becoming a friend to yourself instead of acting as an enemy, because you know self-love is the most important love.
I’m slowly learning to let things end because some things are not meant to last forever. Some things only last for a little while. Some people are just here to teach us a lesson and then leave.
I am slowly learning to strike a balance between being selfish and selfless. I am determined to place myself first from now on, but I cannot sacrifice my kindness in the process.

It’s not a fair way to live when you compare yourself to others and always fall short. It’s not a fair way to live when you feel like you have to be everything you can’t be.
I am making fewer complaints. I am criticizing my reflection less. I am learning to change the pieces of myself that are adjustable and appreciate the pieces I am unable to nudge.
You can’t be great if you always choose to play it safe
