Your darkest days may be the very flicker of hope that others need to hold onto in order to get through the day. Your most painful points in life could be the defining moment for another when they realize that they too have the strength to keep going.
Your weakest, most vulnerable moments are the ones that others need to hear because your story is important, it matters, and it has the power to give life to the dried up bones of those who are ready to give up.
Do not be ashamed of where you’ve been or where you are now, because we are each in our own chapters of life and your book isn’t finished yet. There are many blank pages ahead of you that are waiting to be written – so don’t be afraid to put the ink to the page and let your story be read by the people around you.
Do not be ashamed of where you’ve been or where you are now, because we are each in our own chapters of life and your book isn’t finished yet.
Remember, that you are not defined by any mental illness, depressive episodes, suicide attempts, self-harming, eating disorder, sexual assault, disease or any other label that doctors or the world try to place on you. You are a beautiful soul. One that sees the world on a spectrum so grand that others often cannot relate to the grandeur of your mind. The world has fought you, broken you and stripped you of the happiness you once knew. And that’s okay to admit – because you are healing in your own way and on your own timeline and it’s breathtaking.
Don’t let anyone ever tell you otherwise.
