Please stop overthinking life like you have to have an answer to every feeling or situation. That’s not how life works. We figure it all out by just living. By messing up, by missing an opportunity, by seeking advice and not taking it. We learn what’s important and what isn’t.
Sometimes we have no damn clue what to do, and that’s okay. Always trust your gut and know that everything works out the way it’s meant to. It always does. Relax; we were never in control anyway.
Be the person who cares. Be the person who makes the effort. Be the person who loves without hesitation. Be the person who bares it all. Be the person who never shies away from the depth of their feeling or the intensity of their hope. Be the person who believes in the softness of the world. Be the person who believes in the goodness of other people. Be the person who believes in the beauty of being open and untethered and trusting. Be the person who takes the chance. Be the person who refuses to hide. Be the person who makes people feel seen. Be the person who shows up.
Trust me when I say be the person who cares. Because the world doesn’t need any more carelessness, any more disregard. Because there is nothing stronger than someone who continues to stay soft in a world that hasn’t always been kind to them.
It’s easy to look back and question decisions you have made in the past, but it’s unfair to punish yourself for them. You can’t blame yourself for not knowing back then what you know now. And the truth is you made each decision for a reason, based on how you were feeling at the time.
As we grow up we learn and we evolve. Maybe the person you are now would have done things differently back then, or maybe you are the person you are now, because of the decisions you made back then. Trust your journey, it’s all going to make sense soon.
There are people in this life who will take advantage of you and tell you who they think you are. It’s upto you what to do with that information. The moment you let people make decisions on your behalf, you have given up your dignity. But you can always get it back as long as you remember to connect with your higher power.
Don’t let anyone take advantage or manipulate you. Remind yourself that you’re entitled to the life and love you deserve. Remember, no one can make you feel inferior without your consent.
Self love is your strength. Self acceptance is your peace. Don’t be stressed about all the things that you can’t control or change. Learn how to let go. Learn to leave behind those feelings that no longer serve your heart any good. Your life is precious, make it count by living it for yourself first. Make yourself a priority.
You don’t need someone else to remind you that you have value, the beating in your heart is already a reminder of that. Be at peace with yourself. Be gentle with your heart. You are already special. BE YOU.
