Not all toxic people are cruel and uncaring. Some of them love us dearly. Many of them have good intentions. Most are toxic to our being simply because their needs and way of existing in the world force us to compromise ourselves and our happiness. They aren’t inherently bad people, but they aren’t the right people for us. And as hard as it is, we have to let them go. Life is hard enough without being around people who bring you down, and as much as you care, you can’t destroy yourself for the sake of someone else. You have to make your well-being a priority, whether that means breaking up with someone you care about, loving a family member from a distance, letting go of a friend, or removing yourself from a situation that feels painful- you have every right to leave and create a safer space for yourself.

A simple ‘how’s your day going?’ can be enough for someone to live, to answer the same question tomorrow.

Remind yourself
People leave
Life goes on
It is what it is
Everything is temporary
Don’t over think, and, let it go

You don’t have to be MORE attractive. You don’t have to be attractive AT ALL. You don’t have to attract anyone or anything. You are not a magnet, damn it. You should be you for you and only you. And yes, I am talking about you and you and you.

You sometimes think you want to disappear, but all you really want is to be found.

To genuinely appreciate life and enjoy the process of living, you must be mindful, intentional, and patient, stop hurrying, honor the sacred act of taking your time.

If you’re pretty, you’re pretty; but the only way to be beautiful is to be loving. Otherwise, it’s just ‘congratulations about your face.’
