You are going to make it someday

tumblr_piga3iiO8O1tsw5nl_540

have faith 
& breathe a little.

 

it will all be okay.

 

where you want to be
may seem so far away.

 

still, 
be thankful 
for who you are today.

 

walk.
walk.
walk.

 

success is a journey
& what matters is the progress
& the steps you’ve taken this day.

 

just be mindful
& do not dwell on the troubles of yesterday.

 

have faith
& breathe a little.

 

it will all be okay.

 

sometimes,
it gets so dark 
you begin to lose your way.

 

sometimes,
it gets so stressful
you should allow yourself to smile & play.

 

dance.
dance.
dance.

 

through the chaos of existence
& remember that despite your storms 
& struggles, you are always on your way.

 

may beauty 
be the reason that you 
push through no matter what anyone will say.

 

take in art.
express art.

 

be art.
you have always been beautiful in your own way.

 

survival 
is a form of growing.

 

just be you each & every day.

Reasons to Keep Breathing

1. Falling deep into oblivion is scary. Feeling desolated in the void is scary. There’s doom, and there’s torment, and helplessness in this place but you are not completely alone. You are alone because the people who are in here also feel alone too and it hurts to reach out to anyone when all you want to do is to kill yourself. But everyone here also wants to kill themselves, and maybe that’s a reason to persevere. Maybe that’s a reason to share stories, struggles, and hardships in the darkness that we’re living in so that maybe someday we could be each other’s stars.

2. You are someone’s moonlight.

3. You are breathing to keep someone breathing.

4. Books, films, and works of art are your lanterns in moments of blackness to find what makes you loveable than you already are. What triggers your imagination for living can be what triggers your protection from dying, and you are your own superhero in your life’s story, and it’s not over until you beat your villains.

5. Warm hugs can feel warmer in the dimness of depression.

6. You are a warrior. You are a champion for life. And you are stronger than the infinite sadness that you feel because depression is not what makes you, you. You are the reason for the smiles of those who smile for you. You are the reason for the hope of those who hope the best for you. You are the reason for the love of those who love you for the survivor that you are. Keep on fighting. Your biology is not your destiny. You are beautiful for surviving the abyss.

7. Gratitude is a light that reaches the broken parts of you that the darkness cannot reach. Be grateful for everything that keeps you alive. Be grateful for everything that has kept you from leaving this earthly existence. Sometimes existence can be wonderful when the world feels safer, softer, and a better place to belong.

8. Suicide can be postponed for tomorrow, next year or the unknown future. What matters is that you choose life today. What matters is that you choose life for as long as you can and for as long as your heart is still beating, feeling, and loving.

9. This life will pass like everything else that prevents you from truly appreciating it. Make your life worth the memory. Make your life worth the breathing.

10. Recovery is possible, and so much is waiting for you to get better. Happiness is waiting for you. Peacefulness is waiting for you. Adventure is waiting for you, and the waves of all the beaches on this planet feel alive just by the thought of kissing your feet. You deserve to live a life that feels possible again.

Wishing upon The Stars

f65dedd68c9261711d6645a59d6840c1

Since I was a child, I saw magic at the moon,
the planets and the stars
I remember closing my eyes really hard 
as I wished for anything that was possible 
and I wished for the feeling of being an alien 
to disappear once I open my eyes and I am home.

 

I remember thinking the better I visualized
this wish to no longer feel consumed by my loneliness,
the better the chance of this wish coming true and I am home.

 

I remember imagining what it’d be like to live
in a future where I felt the people playing soft music
and my family is dancing as they laugh and drink and I am home.

 

I remember feeling sad that my wishes never came true
but I still found magic in believing in all my wishes anyway 
because I know, soon I will love, smile and vanish and I am home.

Calm is a Superpower

a5a080ed1c3b20b3d0dbbc42b8847622

your peace
is your peace.

 

may it be the most sacred
thing that you own.

 

learn to develop it
in yourself.

 

learn to create it to the point
where it celebrates your way of living
in harmony with yourself.

 

for the calmer you become,
the more flowing you will be.

 

your peace
is your peace.

 

have a good cry.

 

make your room dark.

 

have a moment of silence
as you lay your head down your pillow.

 

breathe
and be uninterruptedly alone.

 

sometimes
the chaos becomes too much for your senses.

 

find strength in your solitude.

 

you deserve to feel aligned like all the stars
in the universe are beginning to shine within you.
