I can’t begin to tell you how strong my faith is and I understand that not everyone believes in a higher power but what I know that one way or another everyone believes in something. Today I had the worst day ever I found out that certain things were being said about me behind my back, which I already knew but this time around I was super hurt by what was said. I never let it bother me because I know that I am not the issue here. There should never be a reason why one should say things about other people that will truly hurt them. I couldn’t help but ask “Why” why does this person want to hurt me so much, why so much hate? What satisfaction does she get and why me? As I sat at home crying and wondering I decided to go on my lap top to get a few things done and the first thing I see when I turn on my lap top was this…..
You don’t have to swallow your tears. You don’t have to hide how you feel or ignore your pain. You have to give yourself a hug, look yourself in the eyes, and say, “I’m sad and I’m angry and I’m hurting. And you know what? That’s okay. My feelings are valid. I’m not broken or crazy. I’m wounded. But I can heal. And I’m going to be okay. Maybe not today or tomorrow or a week from now, but sometime soon, this is going to pass. And until it does, I’m going to keep taking care of myself. I’m going to talk back to the negative voice making me feel small and speak to myself with kindness. I’m going to let myself feel my feelings and do self-care. And I’m going to treat myself like a friend. Because if there’s anyone who deserves my love and affection, it’s me.
I know that, that message was sent to me by the universe (a higher power) my heart tells me so! We must never lose faith in what we believe in and we must never give up. We need to keep in mind that no one should ever be given the power to make us feel something other than amazing. We control how others make us feel, we control our thoughts and feelings. You just need to have faith to know that everything will be ok.
