Thank you. Has anyone said this yet to you today? Thank you. Thank you for finding the courage and strength, as weak as you may feel, to still choose life today. Thank you. You may not have even made it out of bed today, that is perfectly okay. You are still worth so much. You still chose to open your eyes, and you are choosing to read this, and for that, I commend you. You still chose life today, and you still are and always will be worthy of life. You don't believe this now, that is okay. Thank you for still choosing life. You are so incredibly worthy of a fulfilling life.
What would you do love, if you knew how truly worthy you are?
You are enough. Has anyone said this yet to you today? You are enough, not because of what you have done or haven't done. You are enough not because of what you have said or haven't said. You are more than enough, not because of your income, education, accomplishments or status. You are way more than enough, even if you've lost your income, lost sight of your education, lost your job, lost your spouse, lost those in your life.
You are so incredibly enough, even if you feel you've lost yourself.
Your worth is not determined by a certificate on the wall or how much is in your bank. You are so worthy without even any walls to surround a place you call home, so worthy without having even a bank account. You are so worthy. We will find yourself again. Are you still here? Thank you. Keep choosing life. You are so worthy of it...
What would you do love, if you knew that you did not have to prove your worth to anyone?
If you knew that no one could take away your worth? Because no one can put an amount on it. Do not give one soul permission to question your worth, ever. Do not give one soul permission to disrespect you, ever, not even yourself. You are immensely deserving of respect and love. Do not tolerate being told or believing anything different.
If anyone has tricked you into feeling unworthy, recognize this a trap, this is not the truth, this is not you. This is a reflection of their own thoughts, and they are not their thoughts either. You are not the thoughts that are asking you to give up, this is not your highest self. You do not deserve to feel unworthy.
You are enough, regardless of what anyone says. You were born enough. You have the right to take up space. Take up and breath as much space as you possibly can. Please, place one hand on your heart and one hand on your belly. Do you feel your precious heart beat? Do you feel your breath dance through your belly and chest? Breathe in deep. Breathe fuller love, expand your lungs so freely. Bask in this space. No one has the right to put you in a box. Break open, and know that you ARE worthy of this space, and of so much more.
I know you feel like closing in. Please, keep your hand on your heart and on your belly. I know you feel like making yourself small and unseen. I know you feel like closing your eyes and being non-existent. I know you feel no desire to open your eyes. But this shadow over you my friend, this pain, this depression, this numbness, this unfathomable ache, it is not all that you are. We will find you again, keep breathing. These thoughts you have to disappear, they are not you. You think they are you, because they have been by your side for so long, but they have tricked you. You are not these thoughts, and these thoughts making you think you are anything less than worthy and amazing, are not your friend. Do not attach to this voice, it is not your highest self. This pain is not you, even if it is all you feel you know right now. It is not you. Please, keep breathing. Feel your precious and miraculous heart beat again. Keep expanding those lungs. Take another breath...
I am right here with you. I hear you. I see you, I notice your pain. I feel your anger, I feel your immense ache, I feel your numbness. Yet what I also see, that you cannot right now, is how beautiful you are. I notice your desire to relieve this pain. I notice how beautiful you are. I notice your inability to feel like you can't go on like this. I notice how beautiful and how worthy you are you. I notice how important you are. You are so important. I notice your struggle, and in you my love, I notice your strength. You are so incredibly strong. You got this. You can do this. You can keep breathing. You can keep choosing life. Please. Please give yourself a chance, you so incredibly deserve this chance. You deserve the chance to feel like you can breathe fully, effortlessly. You deserve the chance to awake out of bed without such a struggle. You deserve to feel a wonderful life. Take another breath...
Love, imagine yourself so freely inhaling now, so easily, so effortlessly, so painlessly. Gift yourself compassion if you can't imagine this, keep trying, don't give up. Imagine yourself exhaling out this darkness and these thoughts that are harming you. Keep trying, don't give up. You are so much greater than this. You are so much stronger than these thoughts.
Inhale. Exhale. Keep your hand on your heart.
We need you here.
You are so loved. There ARE so many who love you. I love you, my friend. You are important to me.
Please, keep breathing, keep choosing life. A greater life beyond what you can imagine right now is beckoning you, it is choosing you. Keep inhaling, keep exhaling.
You are so worthy of it.
