What are you looking for?
You and You.
1 year ago · · Self love,
You really need to be nicer to yourself.
There is no stand-in for self-compassion.
Nothing will comfort you on lonely nights like the gentle rhythm of your heart beating against your palm, and the reassurance of your body letting you know that it's there for you, and that it always has been.
Nothing will save you in dark times but your own breath, and your stubborn lungs refusing to let fear hinder their function or end your journey just yet.
In the wake of self-made disaster, nothing will ease your mind like the realization that you can forgive yourself, you can start over, and you can let go.
Facing the pain of rejection and the hurt of abandonment, nothing will make you feel whole like the knowledge that, even at your worst, you will always be enough for yourself.
And when the world is nothing but closed doors and dead endings, nothing will make you feel at home like the warmth of your own body.
So, please take care of yourself.
You're all that you've got.
