What you are comes to you.
What you are comes to you.
It’s okay. You are trying your best. No no, stop, before you start shaking your head, hear me out. You’re doing the best you can. You are getting out of bed each morning, and you are putting your feet on the ground. And, even if you aren’t doing that, and your best is simply laying in bed, trying to stay awake, then at least you’re doing that. You are doing your best, and you are getting better. It may not feel like it, but you are. Keep up the good work, friend, because believe me, it is work. Depression is real, and recovery is real, and it is hard work waking up every day and going against the grain, and choosing to love yourself instead.
but you are doing your best, and your best will keep getting better, until you can see the sun and not want to squint, but embrace it. one day the grass will feel nice between your toes, and you won’t feel vulnerable without shoes on. one day human touch will not make you cringe, but make you smile. oh, love, you are doing your best. Give yourself some credit. You are loved and you are beautiful. You are more than the thoughts that tear you down. Hear me out, and let your heart feel again. Let your heart be open again, because, love, you deserve it. So what if you relapsed again? Tomorrow is a new day, and we can start again. I say we, because you aren’t alone in this. Maybe I am 2 miles away, or maybe I am 2,000 miles away, but I am here, and I am saying you aren’t alone in this.
If you have to look in the mirror and look yourself in the eyes, and repeat “I am loved” over and over and over again for hours upon end, to make yourself believe it, then do it. Because you are loved. Probably more than you can even fathom. Embrace that.
Look at your palms, and the soles of your feet. Look at your elbows and your knuckles and your knees. And think of how you make each of these things move, when you want. You control the muscles and the veins and your brain. Your ribs protect your heart, you don’t have to try to put extra protection around it. Learn to love yourself, because you deserve that.
You are doing your best, pal.
The Ego, however, is not who you really are. The ego is your self-image; it is your social mask; it is the role you are playing. Your social mask thrives on approval. It wants control, and it is sustained by power, because it lives in fear.
Someone’s boring me. I think it’s me.
You cannot find peace by avoiding life.
Swallow your anger my love
The taste of patience
And longer lasting.
I know i must seem angry, but in fact my life is complete and perfect.
I simply seek change and understanding for all. One Love One Peace.
If life becomes hard to bear we think of a change in our circumstances. But the most important and effective change, a change in our own attitude, hardly even occurs to us, and the resolution to take such a step is very difficult for us.
