Recovery is a process-no matter what it is you’re overcoming. No one is better or greater for recovering faster. It’s not a race. You need to go at your own pace, even if that is pace is slow. There will be days when you feel like giving up-don’t. There will be days when you’re at risk of relapsing-don’t. So long as you set your own pace and never go backward in your recovery, you’re making tremendous progress, and that’s all that matters. So be proud of what you’ve accomplished for yourself.
Don’t compare your recovery process to others. Remember that each of us heals physically, mentally, and emotionally at the pace that’s right for ourselves. Give yourself the time you need and deserve.
Do what you love. And fuck everything else. Love who you want to love. And fuck their opinions. Fuck their criticisms. You deserve to live your life the way you want to live it. Chase who you want. Be who you want. Dress how you want. Speak what’s in your heart. Worship what you believe in. And be kind to others. And fuck everything else.
Fuck the drama. Fuck the pain. Fuck the hate. Fuck the social media manipulation. Fuck that. Be an authentic version of yourself. Life is too short to die wishing you had done a little more. (Not my words.)
So you want to be happy? Then stop letting the smallest things ruin your whole entire day. If you’re bored with your daily routine, do something unexpected. Stop complaining about how alone you are when you’re surrounded by people who actually care about you. Forget all the drama and let go of all the grudges you’ve been holding. Stop wasting time lingering over all that you could have, should have and would have done. Stop spending your days thinking of how much better you could do; stop longing for something that has been and always will be out of your reach. Just live the days as they come. Wake up every morning and smile at the wonderful day that awaits you. Take a risk for once. Let yourself be happy, because you deserve it.
If anyone tells you that you can’t live the life you imagined, you don’t have to prove them wrong. Just keep on working your hardest and know in your heart that you can achieve it. Use their doubtful attitude as motivation.
You deserve all the happiness in the world. So pursue it with all the madness and passion in your soul. Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.
Just because people are being bad to you, doesn’t mean you should sacrifice the same energy to them. Don’t go through that kind of effort. The best thing you can do is to completely ignore them and focus on what makes you better. It’s hard, but know that you deserve only good and positive vibes.
You were not born to embrace and express negativity. Maybe the people around you might have brought that side out of you, but naturally you’re nothing like those people. You are way better than that. Keep working towards your human side. There’s nothing more attractive than KINDNESS & EMPATHY.
When someone treats you like you’re just one of many options, help them narrow their choice by removing yourself from the equation. Sometimes you have to try not to care, no matter how much you do. Because sometimes you can mean almost nothing to someone who means so much to you. It’s not pride, it’s self-respect.
Don’t expect to see positive changes in your life if you surround yourself with negative people. Don’t give part-time people a full-time position in your life. Know your value and what you have to offer and never settle for anything less than what you deserve.
