We will say goodbye, not because we’ve reached an ending, but because that’s the word you say when you begin a new chapter in your life’s story. And that goodbye does not mean the book closes; we simply turn a page.
You are real and valid and matter. Don’t let the world tell you otherwise.
I need to let them go. I need to let all that negativity go. And so do you. And after you do, please forgive yourself. You will never please everybody in this world. Not everyone in this world will love you. But at least you can love yourself.
It’s time for you to realize that you, yes you, deserve to be loved. You deserve to know that you are lovable. That your heart is wider than any ocean known to man. That your spirit is utterly and completely deserving of true, big, unexplainable, crazy love.
I’m here to tell you, your pain is valid. Your suffering is worth consolation. Your brokenness does not translate to worthlessness.
“If no one told you this today, I’m telling you this… You matter.”
On your worst days, when the world has been most cruel to you and you feel like you don’t matter, I hope you look at the night sky.
Opinions. None of your opinions matter. And all of your facts are wrong. I know a lot of things. But in any one topic there are people who know 1000x more than I do.
Don’t compare your chapter 5 to someone else’s chapter 10.
When do you actually know that you’ve gone from someone it’s not weird to say hi to on the street to actual friends?
