When I had nothing to lose, I had everything. When I stopped being who I am, I found myself.
 Paulo Coelho (via purplebuddhaproject)
Your heart drips. I listen to every drop.
I absorb every sob and take note of every crack.
I fear my silence will be misunderstood for
apathy or a loss for words, but I have words.
Just too many words piling up in my throat, each
with an urgent desire to be heard. I dare not speak
without giving thought to every word that leaves my mouth.
I will give you silence before I give you the wrong word.

The problem is that I, along with so many others, tend to accept the love that I think I deserve. In my mind, I struggle to believe that I deserve the love and respect that others deserve because I’m broken. I’m like the runt of the litter that everyone looks over.
But that’s not true.

I deserve love and care just as much as anyone else in this world. We all do. But the love I deserve the most during this time…is my own. And you deserve your own love, too.

No one has the right to judge you because no one really knows what you’ve been through. They may have heard your stories but they didn’t feel what you have felt in your heart.
Strong people don’t put others down. They lift them up.

The sun is perfect and you woke this morning. You have enough language in your mouth to be understood. You have a name, and someone wants to call it. Five fingers on your hand and someone wants to hold it. If we just start there, every beautiful thing that has and will ever exist is possible. If we start there, everything, for a moment, is right in the world.
