You are brave enough to heal here. You are courageous enough to save yourself. And while this is hard, and while it may not make sense, it is within these moments that you truly can connect with just how strong you are. With just how deeply you can stand up for yourself, and your heart, and your capacity to be your own home, your capacity to heal in even the most unfair or dark circumstances. Choose your own healing. Take it back. Know that it is a gift you give yourself.Bianca Sparacino, A Gentle Reminder
The path you have traveled all this time does not need to define where you are going. I know that it is daunting to change your path, but as humans we change our minds all the time and that is okay. One of the bravest things you can do is decide you want better for yourself and actually act on it. Be bold, be brave. —You’ve got this.Charlotte Freeman, This Was Meant To Find You
You don’t have to know what you need right now. You are free to just be. You don’t have to worry about offending anyone. You don’t have to worry about anything other than just making sure you’re okay. You deserve to be listened to. You deserve to be shown that you’re not alone and you are so deeply cared about. It will pass. Let it pass. You should be so proud of yourself for not giving up on yourself, even when giving up feels like the only way to be okay. You are so brave for feeling. You are so brave for being. Trust.Jacqueline, Whitney, Stay Until Tomorrow
Risking your heart is brave. It’s making yourself vulnerable to pain for a chance at experiencing pure bliss somewhere along the way.
It’s allowing yourself to love when you know there might be a painful fall. It’s loving big in a world that expects you to love small.
Now that is bravery.Eileen Lamb, Be The One
It takes bravery to go against the current, to chart your own course, to think for yourself, to be your true self, and to embrace that self. It takes so much determination to chase after your dreams. It takes selflessness to share what you have and be generous to others. It takes boldness to accept your uniqueness. It takes so much power to be strong in a world that constantly pressures to change who you are by trying to blend you in right into its mediocrity. It takes a resilient heart and mind to shine like the Sun. So be mentally and emotionally intelligent, my dearest, for this is how the wars inside us and outside us are won.Charis Ed, All The Love You Carry
Don’t ever blame yourself or feel guilty for your progression. Be brave enough to leave behind what you have outgrown. Something better is waiting for you on the other side of this.Charlotte Freeman, Everything You’ll Ever Need
If all you can do today is be brave enough to continue on your journey despite the pain, you are doing enough. Take it slow. Be kind to yourself. Maintain your faith. This is all happening for your greater good, and you are closer than you think.Karin Hadadan, Beauty In The Stillness
You are brave for walking your body out of bed and for trying to do your best every single day. You are doing your best. Others don’t need to understand what your best is. You are brave for trying to move on. You are brave for forgiving that person that seemed impossible to forgive. You are brave for giving up on that thing that you never dreamed you would have to give up on. You are brave for loving after love broke you. You are brave for continuing to keep going. Keep going. You are brave for opening up and speaking about what felt impossible to speak about. You are brave for reaching out for help. You are brave for driving yourself to the appointments you didn’t have the energy to drive yourself to. You are brave for trying new things that terrify you and don’t make sense. You are brave for moving through the unknown. You are brave for fighting for yourself and what you believe is true. You are a brave soul that deserves to live peacefully in this world. You are brave.Jacqueline Whitney, All That You Deserve
Whatever you went through or are going through right now, you will heal from it. These wounds will turn into scars—scars you will bear with pride. The pain will one day be greeted with a smile. You’ll feel immensely proud of your younger self for being so brave. Tears of joy will flow through you as you reflect on every lesson you learned through hardship and heartbreak. You’ll see your pain became the catalyst for your growth.Taj Arora, Little by Little
If you’re feeling sad about being rejected, you’ve done something that so many wished they had the bravery to do, and you should be proud of yourself.Eileen Lamb, Be The One
I hope you are brave enough to find the success you are looking for, even if that means letting go of the things that no longer serve you. And I hope you don’t let anyone make you believe that you are giving up on someone or some- thing, when you know deep down that you are making the right choice for yourself and your future. You deserve to live a life that makes you happy.Charlotte Freeman, This Was Meant To Find You
I thought bravery and confidence just weren’t for me. I believed the drops of attention, of affection, of so-called “love” were more than I even deserved. I thought saying yes to others when I desperately year- end to say no would earn me approval. Earn me love. Earn me something I was searching for but couldn’t name. And now, it will take me time to unravel this. To examine it under a microscope, break down its parts, and understand why it was all so blatantly wrong. But I’ve started. I’ve started and now that I have, I can’t go back. And nothing I’ve gone through has felt more like finally catching a glimpse of myself.Parm K.C, You Will Feel Whole Again
