10 Pieces Advice to Give Yourself.

1. We all fear the things we might not know. And that’s okay. Don’t be so hard on yourself. Put your best foot forward and trust in God. Remember everything happens for a reason. It might not make sense now, but eventually all the puzzle pieces will come together and you will see the bigger and clearer picture. 

2.Take time out for yourself. Period. Follow your passion. Learn new things. Pursue what you love. Give your soul that serenity that it needs, and express your true self 

3. Surround yourself with positive people. Remove any toxic people from your life . Sometimes to add to our life we need to subtract. 

4. Your mental health is more important than work. Your mental health is more important than school. Your mental health is more important than anything. 

5. Listen to music. Open yourself up to new songs, new genres, and new artists. Find yourself in the lyrics. Disconnect from the world and connect to the music. 

6. You have a voice. Use that voice. Stand against injustices. Say your opinion. You have the right to be heard.

7. When life gets hard, just take a moment. Step back and breath. You will get through any struggle that comes your way. Just believe in yourself. 

8. Talk to new people. We learn a lot from our experiences with others. 

9. Not everyone you meet is going to stand with you. Life is a rollercoaster. People come on the ride with you; some may be there for the whole ride and some might be there for a period of time. Learn from every individual who chose to ride with you; wether they affected you positively or negatively. 

10. Love Yourself. self love isn’t selfish. self love is important. Always remember that you are good enough.  

Every time you can’t have fun because you’re wondering what he’s doing, you’re letting him win.

We hurt ourselves to feel but is that really feeling at all?
—  we need to give ourselves empathy

Surely you believe in the power of words? The ones in your head determine if you’ll make it as a writer.

Keep Going;

“You will be okay.” They say, “it’s just in your head” they say. No, it’s never been like that, because if it’s only in the head then why can’t we control and force ourselves to be okay? So,

It’s okay not to be okay.

It’s okay to cry and be sad.

It’s okay to be vulnerable.

But remember this, you are stronger than who you think you are. You might not see it but, you can be stronger than your present self— you wouldn’t feel okay over night, it is a long and difficult process and you gotta be strong for yourself. People might suffocate you in the process but I hope you know that they’re only just there for you, to support you, to stay with you and not to make it hard for you. People will help you but you have to remember that of all people, it’s you— it’s you who could only help yourself the most.

It’s okay to feel weak and it’s okay to cry, let it out and stop. The hardest part of this, is, you know, you really know what to do, you want it to stop, you know how to make it stop, you know how to make yourself calm but you cannot, you just can’t. And it is okay, it’s okay. But remember this, when everything is getting dark and falling apart— never ever trust your mind, stay with us. Stay alive even if the world throw you reasons to leave.

Trust me, the pain won’t stop when you stop breathing. I’ve been there, I’ve got countless of times I tried to end my life; I took medicines, I starve myself, I almost, almost cut myself, I always find myself in the bathroom with my thoughts and wishing I wasn’t there, all I wanted to do is to end everything because I thought no one could ever understand me, I was sick and tired of hearing, you’re just sad, you will get over it, don’t mind it and it’s the hardest when you know what they’re telling are all true but I can’t just think and do it, yet, it made me more mad but I never give up on myself, I still wake up to see the sun rise and I’m glad I did not end my life because if I did, I wouldn’t see how wonderful the world is. Sometimes, we just have to look on the brighter side even if it’s the hardest thing to do during catastrophe.

Again, I’m telling you, it is not easy. It is for us to say but let me tell you I understand, and I’m telling you that it is never going to be easy to do but you gotta try, believe me, it’s going to be worth it someday. You’re gonna be thankful for not leaving, someday. Tomorrow is always a new day.

Stay with us; stay in the world, it is beautiful.

Keep going, brave heart. Keep going.

I believe in you.

You are loved and wonderful.

The world needs you.

L., you’ve got this ;

The most important people in your life are the ones who reach out to you. Whether it’s to make plans or to catch up or if it’s as simple as “hey, this reminded me of you today, how are you?”

These are the people that are going to be there when you need them, when no one else is, when you’re at your worse.

Because sometimes you don’t need someone you’re close with, someone you’ve known your whole life, or someone who’s family- sometimes you just need someone who’s there.
I am strong. Strong enough to carry myself through everything. Strong enough to fight every battle with a smile on my face. Strong enough to ignore all that does not help me, and strong enough to admit when I am in need. Strength is not conventional. Strength is personal to you and your path, use it how you so wish. You are stronger than you will ever know.
