Quiet the voice telling you to do more and be more, and trust that in this moment, who you are, where you are at, and what you are doing is enough. You will get to where you need to be in your own time. Until then, breathe. Breathe and be patient with yourself and your process. You are doing the best you can to cope and survive amid your struggles, and that’s all you can ask of yourself. It’s enough. You are enough.

Nobody’s perfect, so give yourself credit for everything you’re doing right, and be kind to yourself when you struggle.

The fact that you’re struggling doesn’t make you a burden. It doesn’t make unlovable, undesirable, or undeserving of care. It doesn’t make you too much or too sensitive or too needy. It makes you human.

You are not your struggles. You are the survivor who keeps moving forward in spite of them.

You could have grown cold, but you grew courageous instead. You could have given up, but you kept on going. You could have seen obstacles, but you called them adventures. You could have called them weeds, but instead you called them wildflower. You could have died a caterpillar, but you fought on to be a butterfly. You could have denied yourself goodness, but instead you chose to show yourself some self-love. You could have defined yourself by the dark days, but instead through them you realized your light.

I smile because I have survived everything the world has thrown at me. I smile because when I was knocked down, I got back up.

What is broken can be mended. What hurts can be healed. And no matter how hard it gets, the sun will rise again.

Don’t forget you’re human. It’s okay to have a meltdown, just don’t unpack and live there. Cry it out and then refocus on where you are headed.

No matter how happy someone may seem, they have moments when they question if they can go on. No matter how confident someone may look, there are times when they feel unsure and insecure. And no matter how strong someone may appear, they have days when they feel like they’re falling apart. Never think for a moment you’re alone with your struggles. You’re not a mess. You’re human.

Take a deep breath. No matter how hard things seem right now, you can and will get through this.

If life feels hard, remember: nothing lasts forever. Someday this will all be behind you. Someday you’ll be smiling again.

By practicing self-awareness and pausing before reacting, we can help create a world with less pain and more love.

Please don’t judge people. You don’t know what it took someone to get out of bed, look and feel as presentable as possible and face the day. You never truly know the daily struggles of others.

Be strong now, because things will get better. It might be stormy now, but it can’t rain forever.

You are strong for getting out of bed in the morning when it feels like hell. You are brave for doing things even though they scare you or make you anxious. And you are amazing for trying and holding on no matter how hard life gets.

My life isn’t good or bad. It’s an incredibly series of emotional and mental extremes, with beautiful thunderstorms and stunning sunrises.

You either get bitter or you get better. You either take what’s been dealt to you and allow it to make you a better person or you allow it to tear you down. The choice does not belong to fate, it belongs to you.

When you can’t control what’s happening, challenge yourself to control how you respond to what’s happening. That’s where your power is.

This too shall pass. It may pass like a kidney stone, but it will pass.

When you find no solution to a problem, it’s probably not a problem to be solved, but a truth to be accepted.
