I will breathe.
I will think of solutions.
Worry won’t control me.
Stress won’t break me.
I. Will. Simply. Breathe.
It will be okay because I don’t quit.

Let’s talk about what you deserve.
This isn’t about how you look, how much money you have, your age, or any of that other “label” shit.
It’s about self-worth. The VALUE you place on YOURSELF.
On the surface, you might seem to really “value” yourself. You take care, you keep your shoulders back, you look people in the eye, and your life is pretty much together.
ALL OF US have damage.
Different levels, sure.
Different reasons, no doubt.
Unless you live in a bubble, you’ve probably been through some shit.
It molds you, changes your perspective.
It can make you strong. It can make you bitter.
One thing it doesn’t do is make you unloveable.
Unless you don’t WANT to be loved.
Take a breath.
Identify your damage, the source.
Gather all of it up.
Put that negative bullshit in a box.
Lock it down, chain it up.
Throw it out of a car…
Off a bridge…
Into a deep quarry.
Watch it sink deeper and deeper.
Then keep going.
Don’t let that shit define you.
Don’t let it ruin your future.
Don’t let your *THEN* destroy your *NOW*…
You’re better than that.
And you are LOVEABLE.
