I may break down from time to time, but that doesn't mean I'm not trying.
I'm trying hard every day. I stay hopeful. I stay as positive as my mind allows.
I may cry sometimes, I may have trouble getting through the night, but I'm always going to bounce back. I will always keep going. I'm not going to let my fear hold me back.
I am mature enough to realise that releasing my emotions is not a sign of weakness. Bottling up those emotions would be far worse. It would make my pain linger. It would breed resentment. It would make me even more miserable in the long run.
I would rather be open with myself about my feelings. I would rather be in touch with my emotions. I would rather feel deeply than pretend I feel nothing at all.
I may break down when I give myself too much time to think, to worry, to wonder, but that doesn't make me less independent. It doesn't make me less strong. I am allowed to have moments when I feel like I am losing control. I am allowed to have doubts about my past, my present and my future. I am allowed to fall apart sometimes.
never be ashamed of my low points. I will never feel ashamed of my whirlwind emotions. I will never act like there is something wrong with me for feeling so much because my emotions are valid.
I am allowed to sob. I am allowed to complain. I am allowed to feel sorry for myself.
But I will never allow those feelings to linger for too long. I will find a way to leave them behind. I will find a way to raise my hopes again. I will find a way to survive.
Even if there are times when my heart falls, when my tears fall, when my expectations plummet, I am doing the best I can right now. I am trying as hard as humanly possible. I am working my ass off to get better. I am working. I have not given up faith in myself. I haven't lost faith in my abilities.
Yes, there are times when it feels like the world is crashing down around me, when it feels like my effort has gotten me nowhere, but I am confident that I will overcome this negativity.
I know I've been through many difficult times before and I've come out of it okay. I know I've been through worse and survived. I'm going to survive this too. I will survive every nervous breakdown. I will survive every question. Survive every doubt.
My breakdowns may make it impossible to do anything today, but they won't stop me tomorrow or the next day. I will put them behind me. I will keep going even when it's hard, especially when it's hard.
There may be more moments when I break down around the corner, but that's okay. I'm not going to give up. I'm not going to stop trying. I'm not going to quit.
