There Are Times

Picture Quote Poster There Are Times

There are times when it will go so wrong that you will barely be alive, and times when you realise that being barely alive, on your own terms, is better than living a bloated half-life on someone else’s terms. -Jeanette Winterson

Be Kind To Yourself

Be Kind To Yourself Poster

Be kind to yourself. Stop telling yourself that whatever you are struggling with “should” be easy. If something is hard for you, it is hard for you. There are probably Reasons, though those may just be how you are wired. Acknowledge these things. When you finish something hard, be proud! Celebrate a little.

And really, just stop saying “should” to yourself about your thoughts and feelings in any context. You feel how you feel. The things in your head are the things in your head. You can’t change either directly through sheer force of will. You can only change what you do. Stop beating yourself up for who and what you are right now–it isn’t productive. Focus on moving forward. -Keely Chaisson

Ignoring Things

Ignoring Things

Ignoring things won’t make them go away. It only makes it harder to face them when they finally come around. -A. Meredith Walters
