From my Heart to Yours – You are not Alone.
You who are overwhelmed by all the expectations of you. You who are trying so hard to do everything perfect, to make everything all right. I see you. I hear you. And you are not alone.
Hey darling. You who look yourself in the mirror and don't like what you see. You who try your best to control what you eat, to control everything. I can feel your pain. I can share your burden. And you are perfect to me.
Hey love. Hey, sweet girl, you who lost someone dear to you years ago, and you still can't think about it without crying. I'm here for you. And it is okay to cry.
Hey wonderful. You who are so busy all of the time. You who fill up your days with work you're not even sure if you like, just so you can do something, anything to keep those emotions away and to feel like you're taking responsibility to make your life better. I'm there too. I can see your fragile hope. I can see how exhausted you are. And I want you to know that you are already there. What you're doing is enough. You can let down your hands. And breathe.
Hey sunshine. You who thought you always had to be with a man to be fulfilled. You who always found someone else when the first one didn't work out. You who are afraid of being alone. It's okay. You don't need anybody but yourself. You can do this. In fact, you are already doing this. I am proud of you.
Hey sweetie. You who are still too young for your own dreams. You who still live with your parents and who long for the day when you can have the world at your feet and travel freely. I used to be that girl too. Your day will come. In the meantime, focus on making every day as magical as you can.
Hey awesome girl. You who are struggling to make ends meet right now. You who feel like you have to save on every single penny. You who dream of something better, but can't see a way. I know how it feels. Don't stop believing, even through the darkest of times. Change what isn't working. Focus on the good stuff. You will figure it out.
Hey beautiful. You who are lonely and who find it hard to make friends. You who have a heart broken and bruised by rejection and loneliness. You who feel so insecure and feel trapped in a vicious social cycle where your insecurity makes meeting people even harder. You are stronger than you think. And people love you, you just have to let them. I have been there too. And I feel your pain. You are not alone.
Hey you. Hard-working girl. You who put your pride on being the first one at the office in the morning and the last one to go home. You who put in more effort than anybody else. You who are so afraid of not being good enough. I see you. I see your tiredness. I see your fear. And it's enough now. It's enough. You can rest.
Hey baby. You who can't seem to find any meaning in life. You who feel lost and sad all the time. You who don't feel any joy even though you feel like you should. You who are depressed and sad. This too shall pass. You will get through it and you'll feel even more amazing than before. Trust me.
Hey lovely girl. You who have changed so much over the last year. You who feel like your old friends don't understand you anymore. You who experience growing pains. You who have to let go in order to move on. It's for the best. The space you create by letting go will attract even better people into your life. You are not the only one feeling like this. We're in this together. All we have to do is to let go of the old to make room for the new. I know it's hard. But you can do this.
Hey wonderful. You who always try to help other people first. You who put your pride in being there for others. You who prioritise other people's needs before you fulfil your own. I can see how tired you are. I can see how hopeless you feel.And I can see how scared you are. It's time to relax. It's time to let people be people. It's time to take care of yourself. I'm cheering on you this time.
Hey girlfriend. Hey blog reader. Hey parts of myself that I'm struggling to accept.
