No One Is You & That Is Your Power

Share your story

I am the girl that everyone hated in High School. Not because I wasn’t pretty enough, not because I was a weirdo, but because I was not a follower.

I wasn’t someone who hid behind their shadows.

And that’s what I want you to be. No matter how scared you are or if you are new. Don’t let anyone tell you where you should walk.

I went through a lot.

I went through a long distance relationship, and if you think that your LDR sucks, you have no idea.

I had mine for 4 years, I was told that he was in need of a heart transplantation, and than that he died just to find out in the end after several months that he was alive, and that it was all just a game. The imaginative mind and the amount of time people have nowadays.

Yes I was devastated, I was sad, I hated myself and I hated everyone else. It was hard for so many months and yes no one could understand. I was only 15, but time healed me and it healed my pain, because if you don’t want to be healed no one else can do the work you.

I know the feeling when you have a crush and you think you’re falling for them but suddenly you meet someone else and you don’t feel the same about the person you thought you fell for, because I went through that.

I had a crush in High School and being lucky enough he liked me too, we dated for 5 months but eventually I wasn’t into him anymore so we ended the relationship.

It is okay to end a relationship. You should not feel guilty for a second if you’re not happy in it. Please, no matter how the circumstances are please take care of your happiness first.

Yes, I know what it is like to be in an abusive relationship. I went through that too. I got my feelings played, I got used for sexual needs, I felt ashamed of myself. But, you are not at fault and you should not blame yourself because if you don’t forgive yourself no one else can.

I lived the worst 2 years of my life and I was in love head over heels; the hardest thing for me was to leave him no matter what he did to me. That is the worst mistake you could do to yourself.  Do not chase people, be you and do your own thing, and work hard, the right people who belong in your life will come to you, and stay.

PLEASE. I know how you feel but please never put anyone elses needs before yours. Today I know better, today as I observe my past I realise the mistakes I have made, all the times I let people walk all over me treat me the way no one should ever be treated, and I ask myself why did I let that happen?

I had no one to talk to, I had no one to give me a hand and I went through all of It alone.

Yes I had tried to commit suicide, but if I did do that would I be here today to try and help you out? I wouldn’t.

Everything that had happened to me would be buried along with me.

Why should you end your life for mistakes that have happened in the past for which you had no blame? Because I was too good, and sometimes being too good brings you no good.

Please think that.

Sometimes you just to turn around, give a little smile, throw the match and burn that bridge.

You are important no matter what.

You are beautiful. You deserve another chance in life.

A new chance that is given to you every morning.

No one is you and that is your power. Every night before you fall asleep, give a heartfelt thanks for the wonderful day you just had ( no matter what kind of day you just had ). Think about the next day, and intend that it is going to be wonderful. Intend that it is going to be the best day of your life. Intend that it is going to be filled with joy and love. Intend that all good is coming to you and everything is going to flow perfectly. Then when you wake in the morning, before you get out of bed, again declare your intentions for the day and give deep thanks as though you have received them all. As you do this, you will begin to create your life, deliberately, and you will experience firsthand the power that is within you to create the life you want. Like a wild flower, you must allow yourself to grow in all the places people thought you never would.
