"feeling used, but i'm still missing you and i can't see the end of this." 🥀
And do you know what's amazing? When you wake up one day with a soft smile on your face and warmth in your heart that tells you just how at ease you are. When you no longer compare yourself to others, and you no longer think that you're too fat or too skinny, or too fair or too dark, or too much or not enough. When you stop counting your imperfections and start counting your blessings – the blessing of having a kind heart and a strong soul, the blessing of feeling a lot more than others because you use it to help more than to hurt, the blessing of loving too much and too quickly because it makes you feel alive. You know what’s amazing? When you stop looking at your shortcomings as things that you should be embarrassed by and start embracing them, because they are a part of you and they are what makes you beautiful. When you look back at every mistake and stop reprimanding yourself for it, and rather, you accept that you’re only human and things are bound to go wrong. When you lay all the lessons before you and stop letting it cause you pain and instead, you use them to become better. When you finally look in the mirror and tell yourself ‘I am proud of how far I have come and I have a long beautiful journey ahead’. You know what’s amazing? When you get to a point where you have nothing but good wishes for those who hurt you in the past or did you wrong, because you’re a good person and now you see it as a blessing rather than a curse. When all you want to do is spend time alone because that is when you feel the most content and at peace. And the most amazing thing is when you keep experiencing things and coming through from them even stronger than before, because it shows how far you have come and just how much you have grown.
