I stopped trying to remember your scent. I stopped looking for you in my little ways, my rough days, in my vulnerability, and when I look for happiness.
On the road to finding out what makes you happy, you’re going to run into a lot of things that don’t. You’re going to have a lot of nights where you’re alone and confused and uncertain. You’re going to feel lost at some points along the way.
We have to be our full self, never dependent upon one fixed thing. We are so much more than that; we can be so much more than that.
Too much empathy is a real thing, let me tell you, because I’ve suffered from it.
When I say I’ll be there, that I’ll be willing to listen, that I’ll be your friend I mean it with all my heart.
I heal by letting go of the mistakes, forgiving myself, and holding on to the lessons.
“You will never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.”
I’m slowly learning that it’s okay to color outside the lines. It’s okay that the picture you’re drawing doesn’t exactly mirror the picture you had in mind. It’s okay to change your art as you grow.
It’s one thing to be loving to yourself when things are going well and you feel centered and peaceful inside. It’s quite another to love yourself when you feel panicked and freaked out.
I will be 28 next week, and I just moved back in with my parents. I am once again back to square one in regards to my relationships and my future, and I have no idea what to do with myself.
