Sometimes, what makes me happiest, is knowing that I deserve to be happy, and letting myself express what I am truly feeling. Letting myself be sad might seem counter-productive to this, but trusting myself to heal is the truest path to the happiness I seek. I heal by expressing my feelings. By talking my thoughts out. By crying, raging and listening..to myself.
Happiness comes when we stop pretending to be happy…and just start feeling. Accept that you aren’t something and suddenly the steps forward appear before you.
Someone in a movie once asked how a little girl had created magic. The little girl replied “I wanted it, and then I let myself have it” If you want happiness, let yourself have it. The truth is, most people know exactly what they want.. they just have lists of why they can’t have it. They try to make everyone else happy, and become more and more unhappy themselves.
The truth is, you can’t save them. Propping them up will only knock you over. Loving people isn’t the same as letting them hollow you out.
Let yourself be happy. Find the path. Follow the way.
Breathe. Just breathe.
