6 Reminders For Bad Times
  1. You are allowed to take up space
  2. You are allowed to have a voice
  3. You are allowed to leave whenever you feel unsafe or uncomfortable 
  4. You deserve more than someone who doesn’t respect you
  5. You are allowed to put your own needs first
  6. You are allowed to love yourself
Fall in love with yourself more and more with each passing day. Have so much respect for yourself that you automatically reject anyone that doesn’t.
Relax. Breathe. It’s okay, you have time. Take it day by day and allow things to unfold as they’re meant to. Your life will happen according to its own timing, and you will become the person you’re meant to be.

You are gorgeous

You are stronger than you know

Be patient and allow yourself to grow at a pace that’s right for you. Progress takes time; don’t rush it.
