Hey loves, I just wanna give you some encouragement. I don't know the exact words you may need to hear right now. And I don't know the measure of your pain. But I do know that it sucks doesn't it? Pain sucks. And no, I'm not going to tell you "oh well, everyone hurts sometimes" and tell you to get over it. Because that would only hurt you more. I'm gonna tell you to lift your chin. And if you can't do that right now, then I'm gonna tell you that it's ok to lay down for awhile and hurt. It's ok to feel pain. But it's not ok to think you'll be in this place forever, because I promise you won't. Things can change in a heart beat, or things can take a while to change. But hear me when I say that things CAN change.
Remember the last time someone told you "you'll be ok"?yea it probably didn't help you much did it.
Whoever told you that had the best intentions tho, I'm sure. But have you ever stopped to think about how there might actually be a chance for you? That maybe depression and anxiety won't rule your life forever after all? That maybe, JUST maybe, you CAN break free of your addictions and self hate beliefs?
It is possible.
And guess what.
I'm gonna tell you what you hate hearing.
YOU WILL BE OK!
There, I said it. But this time I want you to stop. Close your eyes, (well close them AFTER reading this.) and let it sink in. You've been in pain for so long, or so MUCH pain that whenever the thought of recovery comes to you, too automatically reject it. Sometimes without even knowing. But this time will be different. If you choose for it to be.
Believe it or not, your self hate cannot control you if you actually make an effort to change it (I'm living proof)
And I promise that you are worthy of the healing. So what do you say? Maybe you should give that "I'll be ok" thought process a try. You might be surprised at how good it looks on you.
