…and you drink a little too much and try a little too hard. And you go home to a cold bed and think, That was fine. And your life is a long line of fine. Flynn, Gillian. Gone Girl.  (via nevervulgar)

Sometimes you just need someone to tell you that you were brave for trying, and that you’ll be brave again. Because life is not easy, and sometimes you jump into the deep end, and you enjoy it; but eventually you have to swim back to the shallow end, getting to a place that isn’t where you wanted to be. Yet, perhaps you weren’t meant for that pool, maybe it was just training for something bigger, maybe you were getting ready for the ocean; the water that you were always meant to dive into.

You are brave; you might be back where you started, empty handed and alone… But you are gonna feel the crash of those waves, because you are not forgotten, and you are far more courageous than you know.

Sometimes you just need someone to say that you are brave, and that’s what I’m telling you now.

You don’t have to spend another day walking on eggshells, apologizing for existing. You can decide today that your life matters, your story is essential, and learn to dance in the glory of being alive.

With love,
