It’s OK to not be OK. Just don’t give up.

1. You matter. Your thoughts, feelings, hopes, dreams, wishes, longings, fears, anxieties – they all matter.

2. There is no-one else like you. You can play a unique role in the world and in other peoples’ lives. The world will be a poorer place without your own very special contribution.

3. You were made to be loved, wanted and treasured. It’s not just a matter of accepting or putting with who you are. You were meant to be valued and cherished by others.

4. You were made to live a full and happy life.

5. You were made to have purpose and to go after your dreams – to feel that you achieve and your life is meaningful.

6. Your life is a gift – it is given as you matter. You’re a beautiful person. Be all that you can be.

In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain the old pain.

Be forgiving. Be understanding. But don’t be a fool.

You’re so hard on yourself. Take a moment. Sit back. Marvel at your life: at the grief that softened you, at the heartache that made you wiser, at the suffering that strengthened you. Despite everything you still grow. Be proud of this.

Sometimes the people around you won’t understand your journey. They don’t need to. It’s not for them.

Your healing is about you. It doesn’t need a stamp of approval. Don’t worry about how long it takes or how ugly it might seem. It is about you, and your wellbeing.
