A Collective of memoirs by J.S. about Trauma + Mental Health + Abuse + Healing.
For years I said "I'll love myself when...."
Until I finally stopped and realized..
"I'll love myself --- WHEN?!"
WHY am I waiting for less pores, more likes, an abundance of luxury, and to be surrounded by people who love me ----> all when I have trouble tolerating or loving myself on the daily.
That is bullshit.
I need that love now.
I need to know I am enough, even after being lied to.
I need to know I am worthy, even after being abandoned.
I need to know I am loved, even if everyone else leaves my circle.
And good riddens to those who left.
Cheers to those who have casted us aside.
Babe, you are enough and you are lovable.
But you have to look at yourself right now.
Stark naked in the bathroom where there is no more places to hide.
You have to examine with your own eyes, all the lovable inches and curves, the beauty marks and stretch marks.
You HAVE TO.
Because you are a piece of art just the way you are.
You hold such magic behind closed doors.
And that key around your neck has not been looking for the perfect door to unlock all of lifes treasures for you.
All that success, perfection, abundance, and magic has been here all along.
Beneath your clothing and lace and layers.
You are the magic and you are keeping it locked away instead of embracing it.
This is not about trauma.
This is about truths.
And you, in spite of and because of all you have endured ----> have been BURNED and TUMBLED, like a charcoal.
After all the pressure and smoke clears, what is left?
A fucking diamond.
And it was there all along.
Go give yourself a hug.
Tell yourself YOU are the one.
And start polishing that raw beauty. ♡
