Maybe you have said something different to yourself wishing, hoping and praying things were the same...that things hadn't changed....have you? be honest now okay? What do you say to yourself?
It's okay to lose sight of all that you are...it can be easy to do when you're swimming in a pool of pain and negativity. But please...do remember too all the ways you are still YOU. The you you were before all this happened. Remember that person okay? Your pain is only one part of that person...everything else you were is still there. Maybe you lost sight of it...maybe you don't feel it right now...but it's there. It's there for you to find again and it's there for you to live again too. It's in you...you just need to find it and believe in it again.
Once you do though? You will see that everything you thought you were...you still are...beautiful... unique...strong....courageous...powerful...loved...needed...YOU. It's a beautiful thing you are. Don't lose sight of all that you are because of one part of you. It is only one part of you and you are so much more than your pain. Believe it! Live it! Be you and all that you are.
Yes you may have changed because of your pain...but please...focus on and appreciate all the ways you stayed the same.
Take good care of you eh?
