To the one who is crying on the floor, sat next to the radiator. I’ve been there. When life gets too much and you don’t think you can carry on…you know what I mean. This ones for you.
1). Nothing has changed–
I know you don’t believe in yourself, you’ve lost your confidence and you don’t think you’re capable of anything. But that’s not true. The thing that I’ve learned over the years is, when you think you’ve turned fat or your partner is going off you, you think you’re not as pretty as usual or you think someone is being funny with you. The only thing that has changed is your mindset.
Everyone loves you, you are more beautiful than ever, you are glowing and you are just as talented as you always were. Our mind just likes to tell us these things have changed, but they haven’t. Please remember that❤️
2). Every time I was about to give up, things got better–
Giving up is the easiest option, trust me I know. It’s easier to give in, cry in a corner and wait for the pain to pass. But life doesn’t work like that. Recovering from any kind of mental disorder is tiring, hard, terrifying and completely DRAINING! But every time I have fought that little bit harder, I have overcome my battles. Right now it doesn’t feel like anything is getting better, but don’t worry. It takes time. If it was easy to overcome a disorder then counsellors would be out of a job and I wouldn’t be sat writing for you today. My battles have made me who I am today and I am proud of my battle scars.🗡
3). Some of the most amazing people in the world have been through the worst battles- It’s true. The bad days make you who you are. And I know you’re tired and I know you can’t take another day. But please for me, get up tomorrow and try again. Every bad day is closer to the good ones. Stand strong in the rain…the sun is worth waiting for🥰
4). Everyday is a fresh start- I know that today was bad for you but tomorrow is a new day. Try something new tomorrow, make tomorrow different to any other day you’ve had🙌🏻
5). Stop being so hard on yourself- Whatever has happened in your life and whatever decisions you have made, you are still amazing. Stop being so self critical, take a step back and fall in love with who you are. As humans we spend too long dwelling on the past and feeling guilty for our own emotions, but don’t. No one is perfect and you deserve to be loved❤️
6). Open your heart and let people in- I know you’ve been hurt in the past, and I know you can’t trust people. But open your heart…not everyone will break it. Stop fearing the worst, there are people who love you, and you don’t even know it. Let people in, tell them you’re sad, let people give you a hug. It’s okay to break down your walls. The more we put ourselves out there, the more vulnerable we feel…but vulnerability can be a beautiful thing. It’s better to have loved and lost, then to never have loved at all🌟
7). Things can only get better from here- If you feel like nothing can get worse, then it probably can’t. Sometimes hitting rock bottom is what helps us to find our feet. The only way is up now, all you can do is learn, grow, improve and evolve. This battle will make you stronger! I promise you🥰🙌🏻
8). You’re not alone- There are probably millions of people feeling the exact same way as you right now. Things are tough for the world at the minute but please know that you’re not alone. We are all on this crazy journey of life together, don’t struggle on your own❤️
9). Know that you have the power within you– We might get help from a therapist at one point in our lives but let me tell you this….therapists don’t cure you, they just guide you. The real answer to all of your problems, is within you. ONLY YOU have the power to fix yourself. Believe in yourself. Trust me, you’ve got this🥰
Please if you take anything away from this, take away the fact that you are amazing and powerful. You are strong enough to fight whatever battle you are facing and I believe in you. Keep going❤️
Thanks for reading guys🥰
