“The old healer to the soul: It’s not your back that hurts, but the burden. It’s not your eyes that hurt, but injustice. It’s not your head that hurts, it’s your thoughts. Not the throat, but what you don’t express or say with anger. Not the stomach hurts, but what the soul does not digest. It’s not the liver that hurts, it’s the anger. It’s not your heart that hurts, but love. And it is love itself that contains the most powerful medicine.”

"If you’re struggling, you deserve to make self-care a priority. Whether that means lying in bed all day, eating comfort food, putting off homework, crying, sleeping, rescheduling plans, finding an escape through a good book, watching your favorite tv show, or doing nothing at all – give yourself permission to put your healing first. Quiet the voice telling you to do more and be more, and today, whatever you do, let it be enough. Feel your feelings, breathe, and be gentle with yourself. Acknowledge that you’re doing the best you can to cope and survive. And trust that during this time of struggle, it’s enough."

« It’s OK to not be OK. If your life has exploded into million little bits, you don’t need platitudes. You don’t need cheerleading. You don’t need to be told this all happened for a reason. You certainly don’t need to be told that you needed your pain in order to learn something about life. Some things cannot be fixed. They can only be carried on. »

Part of your journey consists of taking care of your healing. The more you heal, the more you become the person you are meant to be. Take as many little step and break as you need. After all, the journey is long.
