Sometimes we fight hard, we speak loudly, we are all determined and yet such vulnerable humans. Sometimes that’s not our battle to fight. Sometimes we just have to raise our hands and let it go. Let. It. All. Go. It isn’t necessary anymore, it isn’t your choice, it isn’t your problem, it isn’t your job. Some will listen and discuss, others will disagree on anything or everything you say. It’s not worth the hassle. It’s not worth the pain, the unhealthiness, the effort or to lose your own happiness. Sometimes you just have to raise your hands up, even in the smallest little battles, and tell yourself “it is time to let it go”. It will all come back, whether you do good or bad.
Yesterday I was speaking to @yuko_yoga
about choosing happiness and it make me think deeper. We are the sole controller of our own mind, nobody else. Sounds familiar? Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t, but at least we have to repeat it to ourselves. Choose love. Choose your battles. Choose your own beliefs, your own opinions and your own words. If that doesn’t resonate with everyone, then so be it. If they won’t consider your opinion, then so be it. The fact is, you cannot control other people’s choices. People are going to say what they’re going to say or do what they’re going to do due to what they are feeling or processing, or what they have learned they’re supposed to say, or supposed to do. My self worth and self love is not determined or dependent on other people; what they say or what they do, or what they won’t say or won’t do.
Love yourself always. Because nobody is going to do it for you. It’s hard. My God, it’s hard. Battling with depression and anxiety makes it even harder. But just remember this, in the back of your mind.
Let it all go, and focus on yourself and your growth. Let all of the anger, the doubt, the insecurity, the pain go.
You’re worth the happiness.
