Who cares that your world was shattered into a million pieces? Who cares that people hurt you and abused you again, and again and again? Who cares – you should.
What you have been through, matters. How you felt then, matters. How you feel now, matters. You matter. Even if no one on this earth ever cared about you – you should. You deserve your own love and compassion, and that is where your healing begins.
When you feel weak, you are actually at your strongest of points. It takes strength to get back up when every inch of your body wants to give up. It takes strength to fight battles most people only dream about in nightmares. You are making beautiful progress
Today, no matter where you go, what you do or who you are with – be kinder to yourself. You are doing the best you can, given the emotional state you are in. We all carry our own stories with us, but it is never too late to begin to write a happier ending.
OK, so you have been through a lot of awful things in your life, and people have treated you in horrible ways… that is all very sad, and I truly wished none of that would have happened to you. You deserve to be treated with kindness, love, and respect, and life should be fun and wonderful for you. But you know what, what happened to you has already happened. No amount of sadness, anger, or pain you feel NOW can ever make that go away. However, YOU can do something about how you feel today.
The first step might be to say to yourself, ok, I have spent enough time on feeling bad. It is enough. I really look forward to feeling better again, I want to feel good again. I want to smile, I want to laugh, I want to relax and enjoy life again. I will no longer hold myself back from all those wonderful things because I finally realize I CAN do something about how I feel today.
