After all avenues have been exhausted.
After you have put forth all of your efforts.
After you have sacrificed.
After you have comprised.
After you have given more than you maybe should have.
After you have taken more than you should have.
After you have fallen one to many times.
After you’ve been hurt for far too long.
After you have lost sleep.
After you have dried your last tear.
After you’ve come to the conclusion that this will never work out.
Wash the weight of the world from your shoulders.
Then, you will be able to walk in the light of the peace of mind that you so deserve.
You have not failed.
You have decided to save yourself, which is not a crime.
On the contrary, it’s a gift.
In the end, you are the one who has the power to rescue yourself from yourself.
Know that your words hold great power, and with that power comes great responsibility.
Your words can have a fantastic impression, either positive or negative on their recipient/s.
What may seem to be a trivial comment to you, could have a long lasting (sometimes a lifetime) affect on someone else.
I find it very interesting as to what we remember being said to us throughout our lives.
The things that seem to stick with us.
The statements that have helped form our opinions of ourselves (good and bad).
The negative comments shouted to us as children that still hurt, to this very day.
The gravity in which we still hold and held, to the words of acceptance and approval from our elders/mentors.
Or the silence, in which we keep seeking this approval.
This silence has the power to speak louder than any words ever spoken.
