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.
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.
Friend, you love so well. You care for so many. Allow yourself to love and care for you. You are worthy of that love and care, and you will love others even better when you love yourself. You are worthy of love. You are worthy of love. You are worthy of love. You are loved.
Friend, you are loved. You are not alone. You are a part of the whole. We are all in this together, every single one. Even when you are on your own, I promise, you are not alone. You are with us all, and I’m so glad.
Friend, I’m glad you’re here. While pain and hurt are a normal part of life, remember that does not mean that you must resign yourself to them. There is good. There is light. There is love. You are here. This is good.
Friend, today may be a hard, hard day. That’s okay. It’s not easy, but it’s okay. It’s valid. Today may be a really good day. That’s okay too. Things can go well. Enjoy them. Stop covering your head waiting for the next bad thing. Embrace the good things while you have them. You, my friend, are a good thing.
