1. I don’t apologize enough, and for that, I am sorry.
- you are useful
- you are valuable
- you are important
- you are worthy
- you are loved
- you deserve to be reminded of that daily
- when people hurt you you have every right to be upset
- you are allowed to be angry
- you are allowed to be selfish
- you are allowed to think you deserve better
- you are allowed to want more for yourself
- fuck anyone who ever tells you otherwise
you are allowed to terminate toxic relationships
you are allowed to walk away from people who hurt you
you are allowed to be angry and selfish and unforgiving
you don’t owe anyone an explanation for taking care of yourself
if you’re thinking about how much you care about someone
and when someone lets you know how much they care about you
let them know you care too
you are very important and loved *cups your face in my hands* you’re better than you assume yourself to be
i hope that one day you feel as happy as you make other people
i hope that you experience laughing to the point of your sides aching
i hope that you will get the chance to completely and utterly enjoy yourself doing something you love or being with people you love or just having fun
i hope that you’ll start to see yourself as someone worthy of those things
every time you take another breath you’re doing your best. i’m so proud of you for being here even though things might be hard.
it’s okay to break down if you need to. it doesn’t mean you’re weak, it means you’re human.
don’t beat yourself up over things you can’t control. good things are coming your way. let the pieces fall where they’re supposed to.
you are beautiful and loved and important, and this world wouldn’t work without you. never forget your infinite worth.
please don’t feel bad for not being able to love yourself!
loving yourself is a long and difficult process and it involves a lot of deprogramming yourself from the harmful bullshit that society and people have told you. you shouldn’t be made to feel weak or a failure for struggling with that.
take your time, and when you do feel able to love yourself, it’ll be wonderful and genuine and not a rushed fake thing
in the mean time, please take care of yourself!
Loving reminder that expunging toxic and abusive people from your life is ok even when you’re related to them
Caring notice that it’s ok to have complex and difficult feelings about people that have hurt you
Gentle memo that you aren’t obligated to forgive anyone if you don’t want to
Tender note that people who tell you otherwise mean you no good
