You are valid. Your feelings are valid. Your experiences are valid. No one else gets to decide your value. No one else has a say in who you are. Continue on as you are, as you’re doing. You’re beautiful just the way you are. I promise.
Take your time, friend. Whatever that looks like, however long that is. Only you know what you need. Only you know if action is rest for your mind or if slowing down is the right thing for you. You get to decide. Take your time.
Warrior, it’s okay to remove yourself from bad situations, relationships, environments. Only you know what you need. Only you know what makes you safe. Only you decide what that looks like. Trust yourself. Walk away if you need to. It’s not weakness. Knowing what you need is strength, and you are so strong.
