Just a reminder in case your mind is playing tricks on you today:
You matter. You’re important. You’re loved. And your presence on this earth makes a difference whether you see it or not.
i’m very thankful you’re here. please know that you don’t have to go through anything alone. i realize it’s a lot easier said than done, but please don’t hesitate to dm me if you ever need or want to vent and just need someone to listen. our brains like to convince us that we can’t reach out to people. for various reasons.
we convince ourselves that we’re bothering them if we reach out or need to lean on them. we make ourselves feel like we’re going to sound crazy for how we’re feeling or we worry that they’re going to think we sound crazy or think that we just are crazy, so we talk ourselves out of reaching out. we convince ourselves that we’re overreacting, that whatever we’re going through and feeling isn’t that big of a deal.
we really convince ourselves that we can’t reach out to anyone because everyone also has their own stuff going on and we can’t burden them with our shit when they’re going through their own stuff. or because everyone also has their own stuff they’re dealing with, we feel like we can’t reach out because what we’re going through isn’t as important or as big as what they’re going through. or we convince ourselves that we should be able handle whatever is it that we’re dealing with or going through. we convince ourselves that we should be able to handle it on our own.
but, none of that is true. at all.
you’re not bothering anyone. you’re not burdening anyone. what you’re going through is valid and isn’t any less important or real or as tough as what anyone else goes through or is going through. what you’re struggling with matters. what you’re feeling does matter. you matter.
everyone who loves you and cares about you would much rather you reach out to them even when you’re worried about being too much for them, then you not and seeing you struggling by yourself 😣
please, please don’t ever hesitate to reach out to me if you feel comfortable or reach out to anyone you feel comfortable and trust when you need someone to be there for you!
also, please remember that you are loved so damn much and you mean so much more to everyone than you can even know or realize!
and if no one has told you this today/you haven’t heard it in a minute or just need this right now, i love you! i personally love you! i’m very glad that i get to know you and that i get to be apart of your life.
i hope you’re having a good day and that you’re taking care of yourself! please make sure to drink some water if you haven’t today (or if you haven’t in a bit 😅) and make sure you’re taking sometime for yourself and doing something that makes you truly happy 💙
