Everything That Made Us Fall Taught Us How To Fly.
I know life gets hard sometimes.
I know there are days when you feel like you are standing in the eye of a hurricane and there’s nothing you can do to find a way out.
I know there are times when you feel like you are lost in the big, vast sea and the shore is nowhere to be found.
I know it feels like you will never make it out of the darkness and that you won’t survive.
There are going to be days when the “whys” will break you and leave you searching for answers that are not there.
And it’s right there when you are at your lowest low.
When you are seeing your entire world fall apart before your eyes.
When you begin to wonder what the point of all of this is.
You keep asking yourself each day why it hurts so much and why life has to feel so heavy on your shoulders?
I don’t know the answer to that but this I can tell you: It’s going to be ok.
Probably not the kind of ok you had in mind but you will survive.
It’s going to be a long, hard road but eventually, you will thrive.
Trust me, somehow, you will.
Someone very wise once told me that it is an ending but it’s not the end.
I know it’s hard right now but hang in there.
Because I promise that one day, not too far from today, the air you breathe won’t feel like fire entering your lungs anymore.
Remember who you once were before the pain, heartache and disappointments and before all the lies and empty words.
Who were you?
Were you someone sweet?
Were you the type of person who woke up with a smile?
Did you hum to yourself at work?
Did you always see the silver lining?
I know that this person seems like a stranger now but you are still that person.
Deep down inside you are still who you used to be.
Go back and heal yourself.
You have so much to offer the world so don’t be afraid.
I know you feel hopeless right now.
You have had to let go of something important to you and your feelings are justified.
You feel that you will never be happy again and that you will never be able to love again.
It’s alright to feel this way but keep this in mind:
There are still so many things to be experienced,
so many places to go and so many other dreams to chase.
Take your time but don’t shut yourself out completely.
Be cautious, be scared but also give yourself a chance to be happy.
After all you have been through, you deserve that much.
If you wake up and the world seems too heavy then allow yourself to feel its weight and cry if you must.
Feel the entirety of your emotions but also be in control of it because sooner or later, the pain will stop, just hold on.
Take every day one step at a time and most importantly, love yourself.
It doesn’t matter what other people did to you or what they told you because they don’t know you.
They can’t see the heart inside of you.
The heart I know is pure and kind.
Be in awe of who you are and who you are becoming.
Love your smile and the way you laugh.
Love your awkwardness.
Love every breath you take.
Love yourself so much that others won’t be able to make you feel small and unwanted.
Love every flaw, every weakness and strive to be the best version of yourself not for others but for you.
You are not an inconvenience ,,
You are worth it.
One day, you will only see this dark moment as a lesson.
A distant memory that doesn’t weigh you down like it used to.
Yes, you will have some scars but it won’t hurt.
It will just be there to remind you that you survived every single battle you thought you couldn’t and that you are stronger than you have ever been in your entire life.
One day, you will wake up wrapped in that warm, cozy feeling that for the first time in a long time, everything is ok.
You will realise that you don’t break as much as you used to.
You will just be there with nowhere to run to and nowhere to escape from because for some strange but beautiful reason you know that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
And on that day, you will come to terms with the fact that in the end, it was everything that made us fall that taught us how to fly.
