When nobody cares about you – start caring about yourself πŸŒΉ

When nobody else celebrates you, learn to celebrate yourself. When nobody else compliments you, learn to compliment yourself. It is not up to other people to keep you encouraged. It is up to you. Encouragement should come from the inside.”

– Jay Shetty

Being alone can actually make you stronger. Some people might argue with that and claim that you are more powerful when you team up with others who motivate and support you. Well, what if that is not avaliable? What if you are truly alone? Then you have no choice other than to begin to care about yourself and encourage yourself. That is where you find your unconditional strenght and your unconditional happiness. That is the very key to improving your life, regarding all aspects. πŸ™

Without the darkness you would not appreciate the light as much as you do πŸ™

I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game-winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”

– Michael Jordan

What if all the mistakes you have made were actually of beautiful value? What if there is benefit in all the pain and all the hurtful experiences? What if all these awful things you have been through can be your solid foundation on which you stand firmly while you rebuild your strenght? What if the bad things he did to you, can actually inspire you to NOW become stronger and happier?

Everything is of value. Without the darkness you would not appreciate the light as much as you do. πŸ™

From raging insecurities to strong empowerment πŸŒΌ

“(…) Can you hear the whispers all across the room?
You feel her eyes all over you like cheap perfume
You’re beautiful, but misunderstood
So why you tryna be just like the neighborhood?
I can see it, I know what you’re feelin’
So let me tell you ’bout my little secret
I’m a little crazy underneath this
Underneath this
Do you ever feel like a misfit?
Everything inside you is dark and twisted
Oh, but it’s okay to be different
‘Cause baby, so am I (So am I, so am I, so am I)
Do you ever feel like an outcast?
You don’t have to fit into the format
Oh, but it’s okay to be different
‘Cause baby, so am I (So am I, so am I, so am I-I-I-I-I) (…) “

Ava Max,” So am I”

No matter what you look like, what body type you have or what clothes you have – people will look at you and some will judge you. There will always be those who love the way you look and those who completely disapprove of everything that you are. Let them think as they choose to.

The beautiful part about life is when you finally give up trying to please everyone else, when you finally shake loose from caring about their disapproval or approval. There is so much freedom and empowerment to be felt when you start giving yourself the love and approval you previously tried to get from other people and external things.

It is a process. It takes time. I began working on this 12 years ago, when I was 24. I have come such a long way, I went from having no self esteem what so ever, from feeling like a helpless victim and feeling I had to please everyone around me in order to deserve to be liked a little – I went from all that to really liking myself, inside and outside no matter what other people think of me. I began to appreciate life, to appreciate all experiences – especially the bad ones because they helped inspire me to now become stronger.

I would not even be the happy, confident and empowered woman I am today without every single bad thing that ever happened to me. So I am grateful, for all of it. My entire way of viewing life is 100% different from how I viewed life 12 years ago. If I can change all these limiting insecurities, anyone can.

And no, the external things didn’t change before I felt better. I still look exactly the same way as I did before, I have the same job, the same relationship, I have still gone through all those awful things in my life that left me on the brink of despair – and I have since then gone through even more negative experiences in all aspects of my life. And yet here I am, happier and stronger than ever. Loving life, loving my body and feeling appreciation for every step along my way. Feeling appreciation for every rascal that ever hurt me because I am who I am today because of it all. It is an endless journey that I intend to enjoy. πŸ™

If we have kindness, love and respect in our hearts, we contribute to the healing πŸ™

Everyone has a story, many even have a painful past that still haunts them daily. Treat everyone you meet with kindness and respect. You cannot possibly understand why they act as they do because you have not lived through their experiences nor felt their pain.

We all find our own ways of dealing with what we have been through, and if we have kindness, love and respect in our hearts when we interact with others, we contribute to the healing. πŸ™

Here I feel safe and secure, shielded from the world πŸ™

At night when all is dark and still, I am in my safe haven. Here I feel safe and secure, shielded from the world.

In my safe haven I need not watch my back or have open doors, I can relax and enjoy my moment.

There is only kindness, love and comfort here, my boundaries stand firm and respected. My home is my castle, my fort of relief. πŸ™

I am strong but this has shattered all the walls I have built up

The frustration is tearing me apart in the most excruciating way there is. Every waking moment, my body aches for it. I cannot find peace until I get it. Every second without it feels like a year. I am strong but this has shattered all the walls I have built up.

The fear I felt froze every inch of my body, but you didn’t even hesitate

I cared about you and yet you took my kindness and my trust and shattered it into millions of pieces.

Your arms and hands were so strong, I didn’t have a chance. The pain and all the bruises you left on my body were nothing compared to the utter powerlessness I felt when tried to pull your hands away from my body, when I looked into your eyes and I begged you to stop, when I said no and you just put your cold hand firmly over my mouth… Then you did exactly what I feared you would do.

My body froze and my heart was beating so loud. The fear I felt froze every inch of my body. But you didn’t even hesitate.

I can forgive everything and I don’t want to hurt you back – I just want to get away from that suffocating powerless feeling that haunts me every second of every fucking moment of every fucking day. The feeling that no matter how much I tried to get you to stop, you didn’t. You crushed my most sacred boundary.

Love is the miracle cure that can heal even the most wounded of hearts and the most scarred of souls β€οΈ

β€œLove is the greatest healing power I know. Love can heal even the deepest and most painful memories because love brings the light of understanding to the darkest corners of our hearts and minds.”

Louise Hay

All the things you have been through, all the hurt, all the pain and all the injustice. Everything that once brought you to your knees in despair and everything that still haunts you daily – it can all heal with love. Love is the miracle cure that can heal even the most wounded of hearts and the most scarred of souls.

Learning to love yourself is the most important change you could ever do. Learning to love others and all of life will come natural to you once you begin to love yourself unconditionally. It starts with you and how you feel, and you can do something about that.

I will hold your hand through the darkness

Come to me, I will hold your hand through the darkness. I know there will be stars to light up your path.

You don’t have to dry your tears or hide your pain. Come as you are, feel as you feel. Even in you weakest of moments your heart and soul radiate love, kindness and an ever increasing strenght. I can see through all the pain, all the hurt and all shattered dreams and what I see is beautiful. 🌹

The beauty in your despair, your guiding light out of the darkness πŸ™

There can be something very beautiful in your despair, because that can be the moment when a sparkle of hope is born.

Once hope has begun to glimmer within you, relief will follow.

Hope is your guiding light out of the darkness, hope can make everything possible once again.
