Life is odd. Like when you read something that a complete stranger has written and you feel like they wrote it for you, that they knew exactly what you were thinking and exactly what you needed to hear. Has this ever happened to you, or am I just crazy??
Thank you Natalie from Nat The Fat Rat and Jessica Piacenza– I hope that you don’t mind me sharing.
‘it’s okay to not always be strong. it’s okay to sometimes feel scared. it’s okay to rely on your partner for strength, even when you worry your lean may feel more like a dead weight. it’s okay to let go of the idea that if you just work hard enough, you can please everybody. because you can’t. you can’t please everybody. and it’s okay to stop reading the crap people write about you online. it’s okay to not try and make them like you (you can’t make them like you). it’s okay to decide not to care when people hate you over misunderstandings (or over your eyebrows ;). it’s okay, it’s okay, it’s okay. we are beautiful and good enough, just as god made us. god does not make mistakes. and the stomachaches will go away with time, and the hormone-induced fears too, and i know i’ll start to feel like myself again soon. hormones are ever changing, after all. and even when i worry that i’m not, i know that i am stronger than this. we all are. because we are not our bodies. these bodies are our limits, but we are limitless.’
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
