"I am still learning how to go back & re-read my own chapters without feeling like I want to set all my pages on fire."
- E. V. Rogina
Sometimes instead of re-reading them we need to shift and edit the way it is written, what light people are seen through. What is the narrative like?
This is something I have been learning lately. I cannot control what has happened to me, but I can change how I see it. That doesn't mean finding good in it - sometimes there is no good. But accepting that, and that life can still move forward.
"You are not a machine. You are more like a garden. You need different things on different days. A little sun today, a little less water tomorrow. You have fallow and fruitful seasons. It is not a design flaw. It is wiser than perpetual sameness. What does your garden need today?"
- Joy Clarkson
Naritive is so important, choose your words, and tell your stories for yourself as a way to find healing. You can't control what has happened to you, but you can guide how you see the story. You can end chapters, abrupt, mysterious, without closure just like in books. Tell your story. Be brave. Take control of your naritive and live for a peaceful ending.
Live life on your own terms and focus on looking after yourself an doing nice things for yourself! You can’t pour from an empty cup! People will always talk so might as well do what you love and don’t mind them! Haters gonna hate! Be your fabulous self and don’t forget healing isn’t linear and you are enough as you are! Keep working on yourself and growing and healing! #NewYear #loveyourself #YouDeserveGoodThings #takecareofyou #MentalHealth
my friend invited me to join her and her friends to a hotspring and i said yes immediately, but the whole day i've been debating with myself should i cancel the plan and broke the promise i made with them, i'm scared what if i become awkward all day, what if i don't know what to say to her and others, i don't know how to socialize, what if i make mistakes, what if things turn bad. I had many thought in my head, but finally i decided to go because breaking promises, cancelling plans the last minute had given me nickname among friends “1 second mind" because i always change my mind, i try to change me and today was fun eventho i feel a bit scare of i don't know what
