I saw this post on my Twitter feed and it got me thinking:
“How can someone else love me when I don’t even love myself?”
And I just wanted to reach out and hug this person. Because I want them to know that they’re beautiful, and they’re wonderful, and they deserve love more than anything. And you don’t always have to love yourself, but you do have to believe that you’re worthy of love.
I thought of this other quote, and my soul ached because I knew that I couldn’t show this person this quote because they were anonymous even though it might be exactly what they need right now.
“I wish I could show you, when you are lonely and in darkness, the astonishing light of your own being.” – Hafiz
I wish I could pick up every depresssed or suicidal or lonely or scared person in the world and scoop them up into a giant group hug and let them know that it’s going to be ok. Because I never thought my life would ever be ok, and I used to think those “It Gets Better” videos were bull, but now my life is so much better because I fought for it to be better and now I want to tell everyone that it does get better if you make it better.
And no matter where you are in your life right now, you are worthy of love.
