It's About To Rain Here

Just a reminder to all the souls out there spread across the world and the universe:

You are you.

No one can take credit for creating who you are today. They may have contributed, maybe they got you started, but you did the hard work of creating your life.

Love who you want to love.

Be kind to each other. Be kind to yourself.

Forgiveness is hard, but anger and resentment are harder.

You don’t have to force yourself to love or like anyone; even if they are your family.

People will love you and hate you for their own reasons.

It’s never going to be easy, and that’s okay. Work at your own pace.

Love you for you. Find the things that give you joy. Embrace them.

And finally,

Be your definition of awesome. All the time.

More people need to believe in themselves. More people need to stop giving themselves a hard time for not being what the society or their family wants them to be. That’s not the way to be happy. And it’s difficult to be someone you want to be unless you yourself are happy to begin with.

It’s a long and hard journey to make peace with who you are inside. Without having to explain or feel awkward about liking what you like or doing what you do. It can be done, I think, but it’s not going to be easy for everyone. It wasn’t easy for me and I’m in my early 30’s now! I only hope that people can listen to themselves more, than the voices outside.

It certainly is not easy. With so much going on in the surrounding world, it’s difficult to even stop and give yourself a moment to listen to what your heart says, let alone embracing what it says.

We all need to work on making that time, every day, to have that conversation with ourselves. It’s something I’ve taken to actually scheduling because I’ll never do it otherwise.

That’s nice. For me it just happens when I’m trying to sleep lol.
