the one thing that you have that nobody has is you. your voice, your mind, your story, your vision. so write and draw and build and play and dance and live only as you can.
i’m not sure if you’ve lost touch with who you are before. i know i have. maybe it’s even happening to you now. the interesting thing about relationships is they can slowly lead us away from our dreams, what we really want, and who we really are. often this is because we fear people may not love us for the real us, or we settle, or we’ve changed and evolved as human beings. maybe we’re not the same person we were when we made the choices we did, and sometimes it’s the common fear that breakups will define us and that we could never survive without the relationship. so we go further and further away from our truth. but the deepest truth is this: we are at peace when we share the real version of ourselves. we let go of anxiety and love becomes easy. when we tear down the walls and cut the bullshit and just get to be us and love from that place, that is freedom. the freedom of true love. love should make us feel free — because that’s what love is, free. i want everyone to remember that there’s no other version of you. there’s no one else that has all the things that make you who you are. and that is so damn beautiful. when you accept that and become proud of it, proud of who you are, everything changes. your dreams become real because you see they are just the desire for you to follow your heart. we call them dreams because they’re unrealistic when they have nothing to do with how we’re currently living our life. the ideal relationship won’t come from a partner you don’t even want. just like you can’t be a writer if you don’t write. or a dancer who doesn’t dance. give yourself back to you. start at this moment by accepting where you are. figure out where you need to go. make a plan. execute that plan. and only then will you arrive at happiness’ door.
