You could get up right now, pack a bag, and get on a bus to a whole new life if you wanted to.
You are never as trapped as you think you are. Change can be difficult, scary, and time-consuming, but it’s always possible. Opportunities can take a long time to appear, but they always show up. Be patient. Work hard. Love yourself. You can do this.
Don’t ever forget how hard you’ve worked to get to the point you’re at right now. All of those moments you chose to take the hard path over the easy path; it will all pay off. It truly will. Just be patient.
If you feel that something is overwhelming you, take the time to break it up into smaller steps. We have two feet for a reason; to put one foot in front of the other. One at a time. Don’t take everything on all at once, breathe, and simply take it step by step.
