stay in the positive

if u ever think that things will never get better, just remember that 6 months ago i was suicidal and in danger until i ran away from home with the love of my life and now i fall asleep every night and wake up every morning next to him in our cute, tiny apartment. all things must pass

How can I not believe in the power of my thoughts and positivity when the voices in my head take over most of me?

Because if negative thoughts can affect me so much ―  keep me up all night, make me cry, push people away, be suspicious all the time ― I can only imagine how much positive ones will benefit me.

Falling in love with the wrong person can be toxic. But falling in love with yourself never will be. Self-love isn’t selfish, it’s only knowing your self worth.
Control your thoughts, and you will be able to control the way in which the world appears.
Think highly of events; if it’s good, see it’s beauty. If it’s bad, seek for growth. Everything that happens has a reason, purpose, and difference that it will make. So take a moment, and choose to see the impact that your thoughts have on your life.

You must be able to forgive yourself from your past mistakes. You must. Without doing so, how will you move on in life? If you keep on reminding yourself of everything you’ve ever done wrong, how will you ever see everything that you do right?

Please don’t hurt yourself.  Please don’t give up.  If you are triggered in any way please find something to distract you.  Reach out for help.  Talk to someone.  Take your mind off of the thoughts, at least for a moment.

I care about you.  I am here for you.  Stay strong.

I am proud of you.  You are alive and that is amazing.
