You Really Will Be Okay

Listen, you really will be okay. Whatever is happening that hurts and aches your entire being will entirely fade away. The part of you that feels everything so intensely isn’t a part of you that you should push away. You don’t have to apologize for your emotions. You don’t have to hide what you’re feeling. You don’t have to go through it alone.

You have to release it so you can free it. Show up for yourself and show someone what you are truly experiencing within. Don’t hold it back. It’s going to be uncomfortable in the beginning, but the comfort you will find after is worth it. You are worth fighting for. You are a fighter and you must not forget that. Hope always comes when we open ourselves to the possibility that we really will be okay.

A lot of the time life can be really difficult. But you cannot forget the moments it has been really beautiful and you cannot forget that some of your most beautiful experiences are finding you and are on the way.

Listen, life really is too short and life is delicate. Walk away from the drama. Walk away from anything that does make you the best possible version of yourself. Walk away from anything that makes you farther away from what feels like home—you are your home. You are your safe place. You can create space in your daily life that is full of love and joy and peace and anything that reminds you why being alive is a true gift. 

Don’t invite anyone or anything into your life that only brings you farther away from the peace that you deserve. Don’t lose yourself trying to save everyone else. You are the most important thing to focus on. I don’t want you to look back on your life and regret not choosing yourself over anyone else. You will continue to choose people who aren’t good for you if you don’t choose yourself first. You will repeat patterns that shouldn’t be repeated. You cannot become someone you love when you choose to ignore what you need to be okay.

Let go of the guilt. Let go of the worry of hurting someone you love. Let go of anything that does not belong in your life. If it is not helping you be the best person you can be, let it go. What feels so big and intense right now will pass through you and be held in the gentle hands of the Universe. Surrender.
