Those low points in life – they’re forever causing stress, heartache, maybe even slight depression. And no matter how hard you try to overcome your obstacle, you find yourself worse than before.

That’s okay. 

You’re allowed to feel down. Allowed to feel like there’s no hope. You should always permit yourself the time to feel. Even when the feelings aren’t great. You’re human, and you’re meant to handle rough roads. How else are you suppose to grow? Get stronger? Find YOU?

Give yourself the green-light to get lost for a bit. Once you find the path in that dark, dim world that is your thoughts, the directions to yourself will follow.

DO Go Crying to Your Momma || Dear Glendaly;

Don’t worry.

Don’t worry about anything. I know that’s a hard thing to do, but I’m telling you, everything is going to be alright. You will find self-love and happiness. Just be prepared, it’ll come to you in the most unexpected ways.

Don’t be afraid nor question where your journey takes you; remember to always trust your journey.

Keep asking for it, keep craving it, keep thriving for it, and most importantly, keep fighting for it.

You’re a survivor. Though,Β it may not seem like it now, all of these raw and real things that are currently happening to you are all going to help you grow into an understanding, caring, thoughtful woman. We need more people like this in the world. We need you.Β 

Be the change you wish to see in the world. -GandhiΒ 

Take care of yourself. Don’t starve. Eat three meals a day and DO NOT be afraid to snack in between. Work out and take care of your body. It’s the only one you have.

Sleep more. Sleep as often as you can. You deserve it – you body, mind, and soul deserves it.

Don’t ever be afraid to cry. It’s not a sign of weakness, I promise. Those tears are a sign of strength, it takes courage to break down and open up.

Always smile. It’s everyones best feature.

Speak up. Speak up when you know something is wrong. Speak up when you have something you want to say. Speak up no matter what it is you want everyone to hear. Speak up because it’s your given right.

You are worthy of having happiness, and everything in the world that brings you happiness.

You won’t ever be able to love another until you are able to love yourself.

Know your limit and don’t ever be afraid to say no. Your health and sanity are most important.

It’s okay to be selfish, your happiness comes before anything and anyone.

It’s also okay to be confident – remind yourself daily of how truly beautiful you are, both inside and out.

Take yourself out on a date, and remember, it’s only awkward if you make it awkward.

No matter what you see on television, magazines and any other forms of media: having blonde hair, pale skin and being super thin isn’t the only form of beauty.

Wear whatever you want, however you want. Don’t be afraid to express yourself and don’t be afraid to show some skin. Some women feel empowered by showing skin, and some don’t – both are okay.

Laugh often. Share your food. Tell retail workers to have a nice day, even if they don’t respond.

Lastly, never worry about what people think of you. We are all beautiful, despite our imperfections. We are all alive. We can all feel. We can all love.
