Keep going

To the little girl that only had her mom and grandma to look up to because no one else looked like her.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
To the little lady who always had a big girl job to do even when she wasn’t completely ready.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
To the sister who had to stay strong and keep her head forward to set the example for the wandering eyes of her siblings.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
To the girl who always played down her stress and her struggle because mental health was not something you talked about.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
To the girl who just kept pushing through the depression, the numbing thoughts, and the exhaustion because to stop would’ve been unacceptable.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
To the girl who did not yet understand how life-changing self love would prove to be.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
To the girl that didn’t understand the lessons in the pain she would soon face.⠀⠀

⠀⠀
𝒀𝒐𝒖 𝒎𝒂𝒚 𝒏𝒐𝒕 𝒌𝒏𝒐𝒘 𝒊𝒕 𝒚𝒆𝒕,⠀⠀
⠀⠀
But you are going to achieve incredible feats.⠀⠀
You will change the hearts of those around you.⠀
You will gain all the love you gave away and then some.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
You will understand the beauty that lives within your spirit and the power that radiates from your voice.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
Your resilience and passion will be something to be admired and not mocked.⠀

Believe me, the breakdowns, tears, trips, and falls don’t stop here.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
But you will find strength in expressing your trials and share hope through your tribulations.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
You will find growth in each step.⠀⠀

⠀⠀
You will surround yourself with an incredibly supportive community that ask for nothing less than your highest self.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
Your dreams will no longer be far-fetched stars in your mind. They’ll be gained as small pieces of the trail you’ve paved. ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
You’ll have finally made room for the future you couldn’t quite visualize before.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
Because while I stand where I am,⠀
Where you desire to be.⠀⠀
I was once where you are.⠀⠀
And back then, I also wasn’t ready to see. ⠀
