You Were Always Enough

You will not find a love that is perfect, but you will find a love that reminds you that goodness exists. This love, it will inject honey into the soul of you, it will feel like warmth has cracked within your bones. And you will see how it learns you, and fights for you, and stays to weather the storms by your side. You will be reminded that there is connection in a world that often chooses distance over depth. You will be reminded that there is hope to be found pouring from the fingertips of another human being, tucked between the layers of the things you have yet to discover about them. No, you will not find a love that is perfect, but you will find a love that is light, that isn’t heavy to carry, that does not weigh down the core of you. You will finally understand that love was always meant to be soft. That it was always meant to be tender.

No, you will not find a love that is perfect, but you will find a love that reminds you just how worthy you always were. This love, it will show you that you were never asking for too much, that the way you sent you heart to war for other human beings was not foolish, that the way you were incapable of living in halves was not wrong. This love, it will show you that it was always okay to be the kind of person who loved in a way that was full, and nourished, and hopeful all over. That is was always okay to be the kind of person who could never shy away from their heart. This love, it will make up for all of the times you were asked to slaughter your instincts, for all of the times you tried to break yourself down just to comfort or impress someone who was not meant for you. This love, it will show you that you were always worthy of it, that you always deserved to be seen and understood, that you always deserved to be held and cared for the way you held and cared for all that came before it. This love will teach you, that you were never too much. You were always enough. You were always enough.

    • You are enough just the way you are. Some of you might be asking yourselves, what does that mean? It means you have everything within you to become who you want to be and live the life you want to live. There’s no need to buy more stuff, do more actions, or be more of something to be the person you’re meant to be

    • Self-acceptance is not only based on accepting behaviors. For example, if you were told you were selfish, not pretty enough, or not kind enough, it can damage the ability to accept yourself. Because we have all experienced some form of emotional abuse, we view ourselves as conditionally acceptable.

    • You are enough just by being here. Life doesn’t have to be about succeeding at some goal that may or may not be possible. You are living and experiencing life, and that is all that you have to really do. It means to not feel bad if you’re not doing more than that because you can’t.
