our mental health matters. Nobody knows the internal struggles you contend with on a day to day basis except you and we ALL go through them. You can seem like the happiest person on the outside, but most days it’s just a mask to cover how you’re actually feeling deep down. You’ve got this. you hear me? YOU have got THIS. The only person you’re fighting against internally is yourself, and that version of you is no longer in control. It’s simply made of memories, past traumas, insults from people long since spoken and no longer audible, reverberations from a moment no longer in action, yet somehow still has taken root in your long term memory. It no longer matters, and therefor, can no more hurt you than a leaf can influence a hurricane. You are the one in the pilot seat, and that past version of yourself is the annoying kid in the last row of seats in an empty coach section. But, you keep being awesome. you keep healing, keep transforming yourself into someone better. If that means exiting a friendship that’s turned sour, leaving a relationship that’s beyond repair, or simply loving yourself more than you have been in the past, you go for it. Soon, those moments won’t even be a blip on your radar, and you’ll have healed completely. Stay beautiful. Stay amazing. Stay positive. You’ve got this.
