You have learned to suffer silently.
The words ‘I’m fine’ tumble from your mouth sounding more like ‘I’m sorry’ and the smile on your face says that you’re trying to convince everyone else that you’re okay but your heart and mind beg to differ.
You try to make happiness out of pain, if not for yourself then for the ones who come across you and it doesn’t help that no one has ever told you that it’s okay to hurt; no one has ever told you that it’s okay to talk about the darkness in your head; no one has ever told you that it’s okay to make room for yourself, so you go on being quiet because that’s what’s always made sense but let me be the first to tell you that you matter.
I know that sometimes your heart feels less like an organ and more like an reckless beast deserving of a cage stronger than your ribs but I’m telling you, you matter.
You were not made to destroy yourself for others.

Time will tell. Be patient, and don’t stress.
I look for myself in others, because I’m the only person who knows how to love me.
You see more flaws in yourself than anyone else ever will. Everyone is too busy focusing on their own flaws to notice  any of yours.
People tell you who they really are but we ignore it because we want them to be who we want them to be.
Self love. Rub that term into every crease and corner of your skin. Build yourself anew from within.
I wish I could stop craving constant validation in order to feel complete.
