the doctors keep asking me about you. they make me take tablets because of you. i have dreams where you’re so close to me. it terrifies me. i try to scream and push you away, but you’re a monster and i’m a mouse. it hurts to remember the things you did to me, the things you’re still doing to me. i can’t escape from you, even when i’m asleep. i’ve tried to kill myself just to get away from you, but you’re still here. i can’t escape from you.

Stop beating yourself up. You’re a work in progress, which means you get there a little bit at a time not all at once.
just a quick reminder

selfishness is putting the wants of yourself over the needs of others. 

self respect is putting the needs of yourself over the wants of others.

one is disregarding others, one is taking care of yourself. 

the difference between the two is the difference between being a friend and a doormat. 

taking care of yourself does not make you a bad person

i repeat:

taking care of yourself does NOT make you a bad person

Some days you will not find that you are the definition of greatness, and that is ok. It is a heavy head that wears the crown, so take it off sometimes. You are not defined by how well you preform everyday, you are allowed to take days off. You are allowed to be average and you are even allowed to do nothing of value occasionally. As long as you are always ready to be great when necessary, cut yourself some slack.

You’re doing great :))

No-one else can save you.

People will try. They will give you as much advice, tools and inspiration they can muster – but if you’re not willing to help yourself, it will all be pointless.

The amazingly wonderful news?

You totally can save yourself.

You absolutely can own your power.

All it takes is commitment, patience, and willingness to seek what is good.

The even more amazingly wonderful news?

You can start being your own hero right now, this very second.

The power is yours.

worry less about what others are doing and focus on you and your own progress.

  • no matter how bad things are right now.
  • no matter how stuck you feel.
  • no matter how many days you’ve spent crying.
  • no matter how many days you’ve spent wishing things where different. 
  • no matter how hopeless and depressed you feel.

i promise you won’t feel this way forever. keep going
