Friend, you’ve come so far. You’ve grown. You’ve learned. You’ve healed. People will not always be happy for you for this. You’ve put in the work. You continue to work. Remember, you aren’t healing for them. You’re doing this because you want to, because you know you need to. That’s incredible.
Deep breath, friend. Slow even breaths. Take time today to focus on calm and peace. Close your door or your mind or your eyes. Whatever you need to do. With each inhale breathe in strength and calm. With each exhale release all the lies inside your head about who you. You’re incredible.
Dear one, you have come such a long way. It’s okay to acknowledge when you need rest. It’s okay to let yourself have that rest. Long treks take an awful lot out of us. That’s normal. With some rest you can continue to make this incredible journey. It’s going to lead you somewhere magnificent. I can’t wait to see how far you go.
Friend, take all of the time you need. Your body is healing. Your heart is healing. Your mind is healing. They are also always learning and growing and changing. You are constantly moving in beautiful ways. You’re incredible.
Friend, you’re doing fine. It may not feel like it. To the outside world it may not look like it. You are though. You are here, and that’s incredible. You’re still fighting, even when you want to give up. You are still here. That’s a truly beautiful thing.
Friend, you’re doing beautifully. You’ve overcome so much. You’ve pushed through so many things. Still, you’re here. The dark of the world has tried to conquer you, but it just won’t. You won’t let it. That’s incredible. You’re incredible.
Friend, you’re so much stronger than you realize. Keep fighting. Trust me. Even when it feels like you’ve stopped trying, that the world is defeating you, remember that you’re still here, and that is incredible.
Friend, you’re still here, and in so many ways that’s a very incredible thing. Life can be so cruel, but it can also be so beautiful. If you can, let yourself be overwhelmed with the good and the beauty. It matters. You matter.
