I'm here to tell you that the best days of your life has not happened yet. You have to keep going. You have to be that voice in your ear, you have to be your own superhero because you just cannot depend on anyone else to do that for you unless you are seeking disappointment. I learned this the hard way.
Battling with depression and mental/emotional abuse, I was looking for happiness in the wrong places and I was frustrated, upset, confused and angry a lot because I was always comparing someone's chapter to my own? Why was that? I was not satisfied with myself at all. 5 years later and the decision to come to terms with myself and practice self love wholeheartedly is the best decision I have ever made. It is still a progress and it honestly isn't an easy one but I can genuinely say that I feel more alive. I feel more gentle with myself. I am not harming myself with negative talk (although everyone has those days but it isn't as bad). You just have to keep going and you have to get through it. Look at this way: you have endured such unbearable pain, pain so bad that you thought "How will I get through this?" you did. You are now here, and you survived that shit. YOU. DID. THAT.
Show yourself some love and express whatever that you deeply feel and I stand for this so strongly. Be aware of your feelings and take action in them. You are so fragile and just bottling stuff up does not make it any better- you have to take care of your body, your mind, your soul, your heart.
Do not forget that you are a human being and not a robot. I'm still learning this, I'm still practicing this to my own self. You just have to remind yourself that in the end all you got is really yourself. At the end of the day, you have to be your own hero. When I look back and see what has happened 5 years later, I am so thankful. I mean this. I am so thankful. Beyond words. The stuff that I encountered, experienced and have been exposed to has really taken part of the woman I'm bound to be. As young as I am, my soul is old. So old that most of the time I feel like I'm running out of time. But I am here. I'm breathing and I'm evolving.
You are suppose to grow, you are suppose to hurt, you are suppose to laugh, cry, be angry- it all takes part for something in your future. Do not cost your own life. If there is nothing good left in the destiny of a person, he or she will die. So strive and prosper. You owe yourself that much. You really don't have anything to lose. Love yourself, seek within yourself. You are loved. It all starts from you. Embrace your battles, your happiness, your laughter, your passion, life is what you make it so make it a good one. Keep riding the wave, you fucking warrior.
