Never abandon yourself for what others think is right and true, especially when they haven’t taken the time and care to actually understand you or the situation. Never give up on finding the answers, even when the journey is long and frustrating and leaves you more confused than when you started. Never settle for a life or way of being that’s less than you desire, regardless of how “normal” it seems to everyone else, and certainly not for the sake of someone else’s comfort.
Have your own back.
Be your own advocate.
Never give up on yourself.
Trust yourself enough to lean into the unknown, to face what’s hard and what hurts, and to abandon everything and everyone that keeps you small. You are far more capable than you give yourself credit for.
