Thursday Thoughts – It takes STRENGTH to ask for help

She’s referring to depression, here. And she’s right! Talking to someone, asking for help, admitting you aren’t feeling happy or like yourself… NONE of these things are signs of weakness.

It takes a TREMENDOUS amount of strength to share what’s going on, to admit you aren’t happy and need help.

If YOU need someone to talk to, or just someone who will listen, I am always here. No judgment, just compassion and a friendly shoulder to lean on, because life is tough and we are all in this together.

You matter, your feelings matter, and your life matters 💕

Wednesday Wisdom – You Can’t Pour From An Empty Cup

You know how on a plane, they tell you in the event of an emergency, put your own oxygen mask on first…?

Sometimes, I tend to care about stuff TOO much.

Draining.

It’s not uncommon for me to put the feelings of others ahead of my own.

Draining.

I would often so much rather avoid any confrontations or difficult conversations that I sit and stew, til the lid tends to boil over, and then I APOLOGIZE. Apologize for FEELING.

Draining.

I am quick to excuse people, to act like I don’t deserve respect, basic human decency, or common courtesy.

Draining.

But… all the personal development I have done over the years FINALLY clicked.

And I REALIZED…

I MATTER. My NEEDS matter. My FEELINGS matter.

And since how you treat yourself is how others treat you – there’s gonna be some changes up in here. I am an empathetic person, I am always willing to listen and help someone, but I will no longer be sacrificing my own feelings and my own wellbeing for that.

You can’t pour from an empty cup. Trust me, I have tried, and tried, and tried. You can’t.

Thursday Thoughts – You Matter.

Posted it before, posting it again. So many need a reminder 💕

You MATTER, and your FEELINGS matter.

If someone makes you feel like you/your feelings don’t matter, you DON’T need them in your life, regardless of how they are in your life.

YOU are awesome and you deserve to FEEL awesome, and to be surrounded by people who ALSO feel you are awesome.

You should be CELEBRATED, not TOLERATED.

Make no exceptions ✌🏼
