I just read a post on Facebook that said: Tell people the things you wish someone had told you.
I love you.
You mean the world to me, and I would do anything for you.
I know that you’re hurting, and I wish I could take that pain away, but since I can’t, let me at least wrap you in a hug.
It’s okay to still love someone who’s hurt you. That doesn’t make you weak.
It’s okay to have a hard time moving on from something that used to bring you joy, even if it doesn’t anymore.
It’s okay to not have it all figured out.
It’s okay to know what you want but not how to get there.
It’s okay to be angry.
It’s okay to be sad.
It’s normal to cry.
I love you. So much. And I pray that one day you find that something or someone who lights your heart on fire and never gives up on you.
Because you deserve that.
It’s not always about being right or being great. Sometimes life challenges our thoughts and it’s about learning a different perspective, acknowledging that another can be right, and that there are multiple ways to be great.
But if you aren’t the first, that doesn’t mean you lose. The opportunity is still there for you to forgive in your own time.
Forgetting is not always possible, or in our best interest to you. Take the time to think about your situation. What do you value about the relationship? How will apologizing affect it? How will forgiving the other person, or yourself, help you mentally and emotionally?
And finally, will forgetting about it help you? Maybe it’s a best friend and forgive & forget is what you live by to keep your friendship strong. But maybe it’s a toxic relationship, and though they’ve apologized and you’ve forgiven, you need to remember to distance yourself from them.
Make the best decision for your mental health.
Imagine how much better the world would be if all of us chose to live this way?
You don’t have to be one or the other. Life is a process through which all of us are constantly learning. Find your balance.
For today’s Monday Motivation, get out there and move that mountain 😊
Feed that part of you that makes your soul happy, whether its creativity, science, religion, music, programming…make some time!
If you’re lucky enough to do what you love for a living, way to go!
But if you’re still trying to find that, make sure you have an outlet for the thing you love!
You are beautiful and loved. Have a great day!
