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.

A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking, because her trust is not in the branch but in her own wings. Always believe in yourself.

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.

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

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

Those who suffer from mental illness are stronger than you think. We must fight to go to work, care for our families, be there for our friends, and act ‘normal’ while battling unimaginable pain.

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.

Embrace the pain of letting go of that which is not good for you. Step into it. You are stronger than the pain. You can survive and you will thrive again.

The strongest hearts have the most scars.

Be strong enough to stand alone, smart enough to know when you need help, and brave enough to ask for it.

You never know how strong you are until being strong is your only choice.

Never assume that loud is strong and quiet is weak.

Until you heal the wounds of your past, you are going to bleed. You can bandage the bleeding with food, with alcohol, with drugs, with work, with cigarettes, with sex; but eventually, it will all ooze through and stain your life. You must find the strength to open the wounds, stick your hands inside, pull out the core of the pain that is holding you in your past, the memories, and make peace with them.

Wake up today knowing that whatever happens, you can handle it.

What hurts you today makes you stronger tomorrow.

In case no one told you today:
 You’re beautiful. You’re loved. You’re needed. You’re alive for a reason. 
You’re stronger than you think. You’re going to get through this. 
I’m glad you’re alive. Don’t give up!

In the end, you’ve got to be your own hero because everyone’s busy trying to save themselves.

Pause and remember: Every single event in your life, especially the difficult lessons, have made you smarter, stronger, and wiser than you were yesterday.

Never think you are weak if you cry. Every tear is replaced with wisdom and strength.
