You cannot use someone else’s fire; you can only use your own. And in order to do that, you must first be willing to believe you have it.
You are a perfectly acceptable human being right now, this minute. You are just as valid as any other human being, without changing a single thing about yourself. That doesn’t mean you’re not allowed to want to grow, evolve or improve yourself, or you can’t do better sometimes, it just means right now this instant, you are worthy of your own self love. Even if it is hard to love yourself sometimes (and boy, is it!), or you’re struggling with some really difficult stuff in your life, you still deserve it. So dearest you, be kind to yourself, be kind to others, and give the best version of you that you can give, but know that even in the tough times, you are still valid, worthy and deserving
Love can come when you’re already who you are, when you’re filled with you. Not when you look to someone else to fill the empty space.
"what if it doesn’t work out?"
"what if it does."
