Ugh. You overthink everything.

You’re probably sitting around thinking about what you could have done differently for the gazillionth time.

You’re mentally exhausted.  The tug of war in your brain has officially worn you out.

You keep playing scenarios in your brain that don’t even exist. You make the characters do exactly what you say so things could work out how you want it.

You think someway, somehow you could have altered history if you would’ve just done things differently.

Well, I have good news.

God’s plan for your life is still in affect regardless of your current mental battle.

Here’s what you need to know:

Loving hard isn’t a curse. It’s a super power.

You worry about everyone before yourself.  You love with your whole heart and jump in without much hesitation. You have a heart to serve and sometimes think there’s something wrong with you because you can’t shut it off.

You’re selfless and not many people can comprehend that language. You must have closure with that.

Stop comparing yourself to “what’s her face”

They’ve always told you that you were pretty. And by “they” I mean your mom or dad or creepy distant relative. So naturally – it doesn’t count.

But just because you don’t look like Kim K or Beyonce doesn’t mean you deserve less love. So that “half-love” you think is good enough…

It’s not.

Stop chasing it.

Thank God for the day “what’s his face” called it quits.

Oh, you know who I’m talking about. You guys planned your future.

You unapologetically let him in thinking he was different despite his shortcomings. You overlooked his brokenness and saw his potential.

You gave everything.

But one day- he was gone.

Til this day you’re left with questions you feel deserved answers.

Well I’m here to tell you that you don’t. He’s not yours.

Let God work in His heart just like He’s working on yours.

If it’s meant to be, it’ll happen.

If it’s not – you took a W.

Either way – the next time, you’ll be better than ever and Mr. Right would be too!

No, there’s nothing wrong with you.
No, you aren’t cursed because you didn’t forward that one message.

Accept the fact that you are good enough and can touch the stars just because you’re YOU!

You’ve survived this long – now it’s your time to shine.
