Accept Yourself (A Loving Reminder)

Dear lovely, You are cherished and adored. Be not afraid of anything in your world and know that you have done so much to heal and whole yourself, to be who you truly are. The more you are able to unite all parts of you, the happier and more fulfilled you will be. Accept yourself. If another can not accept any aspect of you, it is for them to bear, not you. You are not responsible for the things others can not accept about life and the world. It is not about you; it is about them and ...

Emotional Littering

Emotional littering is when I attempt to alleviate my own overwhelming emotions by disposing of them elsewhere, when I inherently know they're mine to be responsible to. In those moments, I don't want to own what I'm feeling and how I'm reacting to it. Instead, I'm trying to drop my responsibility into another's backyard. To put it on them. I'm not making space for my stuff, and I'm attempting to alleviate this by leaving it for someone else to take care of. I'm pretending to not be ...
