To you out there who is healing.
Updated: Sep 29
This is what's to come :)
One of the greatest privileges in my life has been to hear the most intricate stories of people.
Stories that may speak of the darkness of depression.
The overwhelming feelings of anxiety or the unrelenting chase for perfection.
Stories of failures, and of the many difficulties of a life lived with trauma.
And even stories for some of those who have creeped too close to the edge of being the end.
What saddens me the most is the common thread that underlies most of the stories of these people.
People just like me and, perhaps, people just like you.
People who just want to be accepted for who they are, and people who just yearn to be loved too.
And though I will readily admit that there was time I couldn't see it, what I do see now is that..
All of us here, and yes, I do mean even you...
Are worthy and have always been worthy, just as you are.
And worthy of being accepted and loved just for being you.
It's not your fault that the people in your life don't see this.
Because perhaps this is the truth.
That they probably struggle with the idea that they are worthy too.
And so the hurt is passed on.
Hurt people hurt people.
But healed people will go on to heal others too.
So to you out there who is on your journey of healing and reading this.
Well done, keep going please.
Because one day, I believe you will truly appreciate this message too.
Where you will finally understand that you are worthy.
And you have always been, just like me, and just like every single person I've had the privilege of meeting too.
