quotes that've helped my heart

“I treat myself like I would my daughter. I brush her hair, wash her laundry, tuck her in goodnight. Most importantly, I feed her. I do not punish her. I do not berate her, leave tears staining her face. I do not leave her alone. I know she deserves more. I know I deserve more.” - Michelle K.

"it is not an evil thing to look at yourself with kindness. your life was never meant to be a punishment" - vic markmann j.

"You are not damaged. You are not socially handicapped. You are young and you are learning how to live." - ask polly

"Stop punishing yourself for being someone with a heart. You cannot protect yourself from suffering. To live is to grieve. You are not protecting yourself by shutting yourself off from the world. You are limiting yourself." - Leigh Bardugo, King of Scars

my hopes for love

"I want our summers
to always be like this—a kitchen wrecked
with love, a table overflowing with baked goods
warming the already warm air. After all the pots
are stacked, the goodies cooled, and all the counters
wiped clean—let us never be rescued from this mess."
― Aimee Nezhukumatathil, 'Baked Goods' from Lucky Fish

‘Filling Spice Jars as Your Wife’ by Kai Coggin

“Love doesn't just sit there, like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; remade all the time, made new.” ― Ursula K. Le Guin, The Lathe of Heaven

reminders for my brain

-i am safe even though i may not feel safe
-my body is the shape it needs to be to take care of me
-i am allowed to make mistakes
-i am not a broken thing in need of fixing, i am a hurt thing in need of nurturing.
