Everybody Wants to Rule the World

August 29th, 2018

I need strength.
I don’t know how I survived the last 3 weeks.

"I just want to be that kind of successful where anything I’ve ever written would be quoted on books,
on restaurant walls,
on essays,
on a mentor’s advice,
on a lover’s text message,
all to remind people of me.
This is the very realistic medium of immortality.
The kind I want."

“That’s the crushing thing about having depression. No matter how strong you think you’ve become, at the end of the day, you are only one false step from relapsing. For those who have faced these demons with me, I’m sorry to have failed you. I don’t think I’m winning this battle anymore.”

—a thousand apologies, a thousand sorrowful nights (7/12/18)

What does forgiveness mean? What do you need to forgive yourself for? How can you love yourself through the forgiveness process?

August 5th, 2018

Forgiveness from what I’ve read recently and what I’ve adapted to myself is that it’s more about forgiving yourself than forgiving the other person. When you let go and accept what has happened, you allow yourself to move on and continue on with your life. 

I need to forgive myself for beating myself up for the past mistakes I’ve caused especially when I am aware of what I did, but the effect after brought pain to others.

Loving myself is hard, because somedays you look in the mirror and you’re not happy with who you see.

"The sky gets cloudy, but you know the sun is still there. Happiness is much the same. Don’t give up because of a few rainy days."

"It’s going to be ok, you can do this again, you don’t know how much you’re helping people coming out with this, cause most of the time we’re too ashamed and we keep our problems to ourselves and it’s always better to speak out."
