This journey, this thing we call life-was not meant to be easy. Nothing beautiful comes without a fight.
We will have to conform our bodies,
bend ourselves backwards,
rewire what we thought to be real,
feel the pain of life-
to figure out what it takes to grow a backbone.
To learn that being honest with ourselves, will be the hardest thing we’ll have to learn to do. Seeing our experiences as not only chapters, but lessons. Whether we know it now or not, they serve a high purpose. What is painful now, is just leading us to growth, to love and ultimately, happiness.
Trust, your process of becoming and it will lead you to exactly where you are meant to be.
