If you feel like you’re torn between who the world is telling you to be and who your heart is telling you to be, go with your heart. Always go with your heart. The world may be telling you to go one way with your relationships, your career, your friendships, your home. The world may be telling you to act a certain way, be less emotional, be more emotional, be louder, be softer, to be something else. Don’t listen.
Quiet down the outside world however you can meditate, take a trip, shut off your phone, open your journal and listen to what your heart is telling you deep inside. Listen to how it feels about your career, your relationships. Listen to how it feels about your life. At the end of the day, you will never go wrong when you follow your heart because, that’s the AUTHENTIC version of you. (Not my words.)
My primary goal in life is to feel vibrant and alive, inside and out. Mentally, emotionally, spiritually & physically. I’ve been unhappy enough to know that I only want joy+peace to surround and flow through me.
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.
You deserve happiness. And I mean real happiness; true happiness. The kind of happiness that makes your heart fill with warmth.
And you deserve to feel what it feels like to be okay. To feel like the world isn’t against you. To feel like you aren’t constantly treading water just to keep from drowning. More than anything, you deserve to be okay.
And I know it’s hard to hear this, especially when you are so sad or not sorted emotionally. Especially when you are so far away from loving yourself. But I still want you to know. Because one day, you are going to feel okay again. One day you are going to feel happy again. It’s just a matter of time.
TOMORROW IS AN UPGRADE OF TODAY. NEVER STOP BELIEVING IN YOURSELF.
In a generation of people who want to be heartless, and empty of feelings, then call it SAVAGE, it’ll be hard to be someone who is what a HUMAN should be. Do not become like the world.
Be loyal, be truthful, be consistent, be emotional, and be full of feelings. Be hungry for love, be thirsty for affection, and anything else human beings ought to desire. With time moving up, you will experience people who match your energy, enthusiasm & optimism.
Let others be foolish and cold. Don’t dim your light to become as dark as they are.
(This Instagram post got nothing to do with the post above. My love for G-Shock watches goes back to A-level/high school days. Not a secret i am a huge sneakerhead, but i love watches too. YES I have some 46 watches right now, 7 are Casio G-shock watches. And when my bestie DEMI sees this at evening, she can guess what to gift me during thanksgiving dinner.)😜
Bad timing doesn’t exist. The people your heart chooses at what it thinks is the wrong time, are simply just the wrong people. They are simply just the ones who were meant to get away. They were simply just the ones who were never meant to stay. Because at the end of the day, the right people fight for you. The right people show up. The right people care, not only when life is convenient, but when it is difficult and messy, and it aches all over. The right people take the chance, they choose you just as confidently as you choose them. They hand you their heart. They bet on you. They believe in what you share with a ruthless conviction, with a hope that spills out of them. Have the courage to wait for these people. Do not settle for half loves. Do not settle for someone who does not see the value in holding your heart.
The people who walk away from you because the timing is not right, are simply just the people who are not willing to put the right amount of time into you. Let that be your closure. -By Bianca Sparacino.
