“For attractive lips, speak words of kindness. For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people. For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry. For beautiful hair, let a child run their fingers through it once a day. For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone. People, more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself and the other for helping others.”

1) You are allowed to take up space. You are a human.

2) You are allowed to have a voice.

3) You are allowed to leave whenever you feel unsafe or uncomfortable.

4) You deserve more than someone who doesn’t know how to respect you.

5) You are allowed to put your own needs first.

6) You are allowed to love yourself.

Anonymous said: I'm a 29 year old female struggling and mostly overcoming PTSD, anxiety, and depression. Lately though I've been having the strongest urges to CUT. I know that's not a long-term solution. I'm an adult and totally 'know better'. What the hell is causing these thoughts?

Hi there,

I truly appreciate your honesty and courage in writing to me about this. There is no age limit on thoughts of self-harm just as there is no age limit on depression or anxiety or PTSD. I know that while it feels like we “should know better”, we can still be impacted by these things at any age. I cannot say for sure what is causing these thoughts for you, but I encourage you to seek professional help if you’re not doing so already. I send my best.

“And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.”
— Haruki Murakami (via hqlines)
