I think you’re so brave.
I think you’re so brave for getting up this morning.
I think you’re so brave for asking for help when it all gets too much.
I think you’re so brave for slowing down when you’re overwhelmed.
I think you’re so brave to admit that you’re not happy.
I think you’re so brave for letting go.
I think you’re so brave when all you can do is collapse on the floor and cry.
I think you’re so brave when you forgive yourself because we all make mistakes and mess up.
I think you’re so brave for starting again.
I think you’re so brave when you refuse to let life, labels and trauma define you.
I think you’re so brave because even when life knocks you down, you get back up and keep going.
How to be brave
“Be brave” were the last words my dad ever said to me almost 10 years ago. I thought I knew what that meant.
We often think of bravery as these life changing, huge acts that take place when bravery can be found even in what seems like the smallest of things.
Letting yourself collapse on the floor uncontrollably crying because you can barely hold it together. The bravery in allowing yourself to feel and move through the motions.
Admitting to yourself whilst you pretend to be happy and your life looks good on paper, acknowledging the truth that resides in your soul. That you aren’t fulfilled. The bravery is defying societal expectations and listening to your truth, your heart.
Reaching out to a friend even though you feel bad and guilty because you’re struggling. You’re allowed to desire love and support, you’re human. The bravery in asking for what you need instead of feeling ashamed for it.
Be brave in all moments, it counts.
Be brave because life isn’t easy, yet you’re giving it your best go and showing up, that counts.
