Life is hard, but it is beautiful. There is still good. There are still people to love and to be loved by. There are still books, songs, and movies that will give you hope and comfort. There are still places your feet need to walk upon. There are still stories that desperately need to be written with your help. There is still so much to live for. So many more moments of laughter. Of joy. Of hope. Moments that would be incomplete without you.
I don’t know where you. I don’t know what you are going through. But I know pain. I know the darkness and sadness of pain. I know the hopelessness and brokenness that pain leaves like scars on your soul. I don’t know your pain, but I hope with all my heart that life will show you over and over that pain ends. Give yourself time. It really can and does and will get better. Hold on, and take it a day at a time. You are worth everything. You are magic and sunshine. And you deserve to be whole, healthy, and free.
