There’s a voice in my head, and it goes, “How can you tell people that everyone is someone no matter what when you can barely look at yourself? How can someone lean on you if you’re so close to ending it all and pretending to be strong? How can someone believe you if you ultimately let yourself think those things and take your life away from you? If you are ever going to say these things, you need to start loving yourself. No one will benefit from your advice or thoughts if you don’t think them about yourself.” That is the voice that saves me. This is the voice that takes me out of the deepest and darkest places. This is the one voice where without fail, is always there.
So now, please, as I try my hardest to accept myself and believe that I am worth more than I think, please, do the same for you. Because you are.
