I’m not here to tell you what you don’t need, I’m here to tell you that you deserve better. You are stopping yourself from moving forward because you can’t get over the hurt that someone close to you has caused you. I’m telling you to stop feeling sorry for yourself. People are meant to come and go in your life; some might be friends, lovers, and yes, family. Everyone has a label, but you can’t keep them around if they treat you poorly. Your life is so much more important than that. You should love everyone, but if they don’t love you back, or have your best interest at heart, then you need to just move on.
Sometimes the people that hurt you the most are the ones that are the closest to you. You have to pick and choose who you want in your life, don’t let others make that choice for you. Please realize one thing; this is a great big world that we live in. Just because you were born in a certain place does not mean that you are chained to it for the rest of your life. Seek out people and places that lift your spirit.
What you thought you knew, you come to find out, you knew nothing of how it really is. When you think you have strength, you come across others who have a lot more. When you think that your soul and spirit has been lifted to its highest point, you discover there’s so much more.
Spend time finding out more about you! What are your hopes and dreams? What makes you tick? Don’t live your life being a puppet on a string for anyone. You can become anything in this world that you want to be. Seek out those who inspire you and in return, inspire others. You only have one life, make it your best! You deserve to have all the love and happiness that this life has to offer. If you never heard any words of encouragement as a child, tell yourself them now! It is never too late. If you never felt loved, love yourself now, and others will follow.
Brokenness is not fun. Sometimes it is a deep, dark, lonely road. But that doesn’t mean that it HAS to be that way. Only you can change it. Only you can see your true worth. So, get on your feet, brush yourself off, go look in the mirror and tell yourself all those things that you long to hear! And start believing them because they are true and you are worth it!
I pray for your strength daily, so that you may see that you deserve everything wonderful that this life has to offer. Because you deserve it!
