To encourage you to keep going.
To remind you to be strong.

Published on April 15, 2017 in Picture Quotes, Quote of the Day
You don’t ever have to apologize for feeling sad. You aren’t being too sensitive. You aren’t imagining things or being overdramatic. You’re being true to yourself by honoring your emotions, and that is never something you have to feel ashamed of. Whether you have a need that isn’t being met, an old wound that’s been reopened, a person in your life who is making you feel small, a painful memory of something from the past, or an emptiness from the loss of someone you care about — there is always something underlying our sadness, and whatever it is, it’s important and valid. Whatever it is, it deserves to be expressed and felt.”

    Really needed to see this right now!!!!!! Thinking I’m having a nervous breakdown 😭. But whatever it is I’m going through I know I’ll be ok and be even STRONGER for allowing myself to ride it out instead of trying to ignore it or avoid it. THANK YOU 🌻
