To the beautifully damaged,
Feel the pain.
Don’t cast it away.
Don’t deny what you’ve been through.
Welcome it all.
Accept it with an open soul.
Find peace with not enjoying that kind of happiness again.
Find peace with the sadness that comes after.
Find comfort within the mistakes you’ve said you’ll never repeat,
Find hope within the new ones.
Don’t hurt your mind with your overthinking,
Don’t hurt your soul with guilt and regret.
Don’t resort to physical pain by taking away your body’s innocence as a distraction from the heavy pain you feel in your chest.
Give yourself some time to grieve.
Take care of yourself
And some day you’ll love yourself again.
