Deep breath. It is okay to make mistakes. It is okay to try again. It is okay to walk away if it won’t work. Mistakes help us learn. Deep breath. Let go of the idea of failure because of a mistake. Take stock of what you now know. Move forward with new knowledge.
Friend, you cannot control what anyone else thinks of you, says about you, believes about you. You can control what you think of you, say about you, believe about you. Choose to love yourself. Look at how far you’ve come, what you’ve accomplished, what’s you’ve powered through. People may think what they want, but they’ll never know where you started. You’re doing beautifully.
The world is full of good and beauty and magic. Yes, it has darkness, but look around you. There is so much light, so much good, so much beauty, so much magic. If you can’t see it, start by looking at yourself, because you, my friend, are magic.
You are relentless. You continue. You struggle. You succeed. You fail. You continue. You try and try. You pick yourself up and start again. You’ve done it over and over. Today is no different. It is just another day. You can do this one.
Friend, deep breath. You cannot make a wrong decision. Some decisions may be more immediately beneficial, but whatever you choose to do right now is the right thing for you. And you are the only person you can know what is right for you. So deep breath, dive in, and choose.
