The Six Wives of Henry VIII + Aesthetic : Katherine Parr

You are more than art and poetry,
you are more than stars and galaxies,
you are more than rivers and seas.


And you are not to belittle that,
and your soul and self
by letting people into your life,
who define you as less.

—  You are More, Not Less | Nikita Gill

I kept pushing against the black, though, almost a reflex. I wasn’t trying to lift it. I was just resisting. Not allowing it to crush me completely. I wasn’t Atlas, and the black felt as heavy as a planet; I couldn’t shoulder it. All I could do was not be entirely obliterated.
It was sort of the pattern to my life–I’d never been strong enough to deal with the things outside my control, to attack the enemies or outrun them. To avoid the pain. Always human and weak, the only thing I’d ever been able to  do was keep going. Endure. Survive.
It had been enough up to this point. It would have to be enough today. I would endure this until help came.
I knew Edward would be doing everything he could. He would not give up. Neither would I.
I held the blackness of nonexistence at bay by inches.

JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE AN UGLY PAST DOESN’T MAKE YOU AN UGLY PERSON. YOU’RE BEAUTIFUL.
