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.

~ Daniell Koepke

Listen: In the future, there is a small, quiet room that is just yours, where you are safe and you are free. In that room your shoulders will finally start to come down from around your ears. Nobody can come into that room unless you let them. In that clean quiet place, you will work and you will study. You will love and you will heal. I know this is true because I am there with you. We are there together because you saved us. You saved us because you were brave and because you never stopped believing in that room.

See you there,

Your Future Self

You don’t ever have to feel guilty for saying no. You don’t have to give your time to people who think they’re entitled to yours; people who think they’re entitled to you. You deserve to set boundaries and have them respected. You deserve to distance yourself from people who make you feel uncomfortable and anxious. You deserve to be assertive and defend your needs. You deserve to make your wellbeing a priority. You get to choose who you spend your time with. Its not selfish. It’s self-care. And you have every right to take care of yourself.
