Your pains do not define you. Your pains do not define you. You are the sum of all of your parts. Yes, the hurt, but also all of that beauty, all of that good. We all have pain, and yours is valid. It is, but it is not all that you are. You are so much more.
Deep breath. Slow, deep, even breaths. Yesterday is done. You’ve already put it to bed. Let go of its problems, its pains. Today is free and yours. You are not yesterday. You are not who you were yesterday. You are not your past. You are not your pains. You are the beautiful, sum of all that is in you, which contains so much more good than you often let yourself accept. Notice your good. There’s so much. It’s beautiful. You’re beautiful.
