You just get to the point where wanting to be loved, appreciated and seen by the person who has never doesn't even feel right anymore. Now, when you think of them, you notice your thoughts are sour and brief, because your mind naturally dances to something that feels better, something that feels like hope. And without a conscious intention to let go, they're gone from you. You're free. This is as it should be. This is how you heal.
You are good enough! You deserve to be loved. You deserve to be known and accepted completely. You deserve the same love that you show to them little children. You are good enough for the love displayed to you, just reach out and receive it, it is yours.
there is no statute of limitations on starting over. re-invent yourself every day. be the girl who walks barefoot and listens to the blues. tomorrow, wear a trench coat and speak fierce truths. be a phoenix. be ashes. burn down. resurrect. let go of the idea that you must always be who you have always been.
