For you, from you
This is for a friend of mine, who is far away but close my heart. Who has only popped into my life recently but has already made herself at home. A woman who is driven and incredibly passionate about her life. A young lady with her whole life ahead of her.
You my dear... are a wonderful creature. It is time to stand up for yourself, love yourself and regain your confidence to conquer the world. Your perception of yourself is the only thing that matters. You are the only person whose label is allowed to stick. You are stronger than you think you are.

So... you've let him into your heart when you know he doesn't deserve a place there. He's manipulated you, mentally abused you and gone behind your back multiple times, but you keep letting him back in and for what reason? Love.
This person does not understand the meaning of the four letter word my dear. Love is sacred, love is respect, love is compassion, love is trust, love is support, love is sex, love is understanding each others wants and needs, love is far more than what you are receiving right now.
At some point in our life, we get stuck in a relationship that is no good for either party but it's a natural process of elimination. You are simply finding what you want in a partner and learning more about your own ethos and strength. For some, getting out of these relationships are harder than others. Finding strength in your heart to let go and understand that this is no longer serving you is never going to be easy but it will get better, you will get stronger, and you will heal and move on from this in due time.
If you are finding yourself stuck in a relationship similar to the one I'm describing, answer these questions below and maybe you will find some clarity in all the fog.
How far does he have to go until you realise enough is enough?
Do you know your own worth?
Would you let your friends/sisters/daughters be treated the same way?
What do you want from life?
What are you doing to achieve these goals?
What do you love doing?
Are you doing these daily?
Why are you feeling ashamed?
What do you feel at this current point in your life?
How far does he have to go before you realise this is not love?
My friend. You have answered all of the above questions, but did you answer them from deep within your heart? Did you answer them honestly? Did you answer them without thinking of what he has said to you? If not, go again... until you can answer each and every one of these questions like you normally would.
Love & light to all of you beautiful women out there, whether you are experiencing hardship, healing or simply living life.
