Being strong doesn’t mean hiding your pain. It doesn’t mean forgoing help when you’re struggling. It doesn’t mean refusing to show sadness and vulnerability. And it doesn’t mean carrying the burdens of life all by yourself. Anything that prevents your healing and stifles your growth does not correspond with strength.
Being strong means refusing to tolerate people and things that wound your soul. It means practicing self-care when you’re hurting. It means honoring your feelings by actually allowing yourself to feel and express them. It means treating yourself with compassion and kindness, even when you feel like you don’t deserve any. It means doing what makes you happy and being with people who make you feel good. It means asking for help when the weight of the world has become too much. It means giving yourself permission to get your needs met by setting boundaries. It means to take care of yourself. — Daniell Koepke

Becoming best friends leads to a deeper love. Becoming best friends is the best thing you can do for any relationship that you truly care about. See, LOVE doesn’t reach its maximum potential when it’s rushed. And when you are going through the friendship process, this is where you develop a deeper bond with each other. You build on communication. You build on trust. You build on differences. You build on similarities. You build on sharing mistakes you both have made in the past. You build and keep building towards the future. Having someone in your corner like that is priceless. Those are the type of bonds that a healthy relationship should have. Those are the type of bonds that you truly cherish and appreciate when you are at your worst. Those are the type of bonds that are truly worth waiting for. — IG@woodtheinspiration

One day you will realize I did truly care for you. I promise you, you will miss me being there, putting up with you, and refusing to give up on you. You’re going to regret everything you’ve done to me, including all the damage you caused. Someday, you’ll look back and wish things could be different. I might have been worthless to you, but I am of great value to myself. — Unknown
