If you thought you could break me, you were wrong – strength is built during challenging times.
If you thought you could silence me, you were wrong – the truth will always be heard.
If you thought I would forgive you, you were right – I will always believe there is more goodness in others than not. Someone has to break the negative cycle, and it might as well start with forgiving the unforgivable.
No. Just no. No justification needed. No explanation required. Just no. When something feels even the slightest bit off, trust your gut, back away and say no. When you say no to things that feel off to you, you say yes to yourself.
Does it matter if the road was once cold and barren, if the road you are on today is warm and comfortable?
Time may help fade some memories and aid in your healing process by giving you some distance from the painful experiences. However, time doesn’t heal all wounds – you do.
It turned my entire world up side down, but I have spent a lifetime regaining my balance. Stronger and more flexible each time.
The dark shadows makes the colorful contrasts even more beautiful. Every unwanted experience enriches the bigger picture.
At times you may feel lost in dark despair, and you may tremble by the mere thought of what happened. However, it is never hopeless and it is never too late because no matter how dark it might temporarily seem – there is always a glimmer of hope inside your heart. Close your eyes, take a deep breath and trust that this too shall pass.
On days when it feels really hard, know that this is an excellent day for you to be kinder to yourself. The worse you feel, the more kindness, compassion and love you need to give yourself.
Every word a mindfull moment of pure focus. A reliefgiving moment when all those dark flashbacks dissolve. Writing is my guiding light out of the dark.
Always judged, compared and criticized. Too skinny. Too curvy. Too young. Too old. Too short. Too tall. Too much. Too…. Why? A body is just a body, not a statement of what someone can or can’t do to you. Having a body is not wrong, bad or shameful – everyone has a body.
We are all unique in our own ways, just like all the flowers in the world. Our differences is what makes life so beautiful. Would you judge a flower for being too colorful? Would you criticize a rose for its unique petals?
In a society that profits from our insecurities, dare to love your body unconditionally.
