Hey, you matter. Your voice matters. Your story matters. Your heart matters. Your mind matters. What you have to offer is beautiful and valid. Maybe everyone you meet won’t want to see or hear what you can offer, that’s okay. It’s not for everyone. That doesn’t make you any less valid.
Deep breath. Let’s do another one. Hear me, friend. There are so many things that are not your fault. There are so many things you know were out of your control, nonetheless you’re still blaming yourself. You’re still taking responsibility. Friend, let go. Deep breath, let go. Let go of the blame and anger and shame. You are more than things that have happened to you. You are so much more.
This is important, because you are important, so please pay attention.
Your voice matters. What you have to say, how you feel, what you think. Those things matter. They are significant. They are your experience, and that is valid. You are valid. You hear me? You matter. Your voice matters. Your heart matters. You matter.
