I can never read a book anywhere & everywhere I go. Including the Library & at both of my Parent’s houses. I’ve been annoyed for awhile…

“Breathe. You’re going to be okay. Breathe and remember that you’ve been in this place before. You’ve been this uncomfortable and anxious and scared, and you’ve survived. Breathe and know that you can survive this too. These feelings can’t break you. They’re painful and debilitating, but you can sit with them and eventually, they will pass. Maybe not immediately, but sometime soon, they are going to fade and when they do, you’ll look back at this moment and laugh for having doubted your resilience. I know it feels unbearable right now, but keep breathing, again and again. This will pass. I promise it will pass.”

This is the second time my Brother punched my face.

I seriously need to stop looking at my photos. But I want to go back to those moments when I was feeling confident in the inside & the outside. I also want to get my happiness back & hopefully I’ll get my confidence back as well.
