I want to get more comfortable being uncomfortable. I want to get more confident being uncertain. I don’t want to shrink back just because something isn’t easy. I want to push back, and make more room in the area between I can’t and I can.
Letting yourself be vulnerable isn’t always a weakness. Sometimes it can be a conscious decision to draw the other person out.
the best revenge against a nigga that did u wrong is stuntin on him. looking so fucking good that he wished he had another shot with u. making more money than him! making sure ur edges are in tact! making sure u getting a good night’s rest! making sure u ain’t lurking on his insta or twitter! being content with being alone! making sure u get that 64 ounces of water intake everyday! u can prosper without that nigga!!!!!
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.
