This is seriously the best quote ever:
Is suffering really necessary? Yes and no. If you had not suffered as you have, there would be no depth to you as a human being, no humility, no compassion. You would not be reading this now. Suffering cracks open the shell of ego, and then comes a point when it has served its purpose.
Suffering is necessary until you realize it is unnecessary.
- Eckhart Tolle
“I am not the sad girl anymore. No, I am more than that. I am strong and caring. I am both confident and insecure. I am simultaneously one of the kindest and meanest people you will ever meet. I am ugly, I am beautiful, and I am bursting with fire. I am home to strange and brilliant thoughts. I am heavily flawed and I am still good enough. I am so much, and I will never allow myself to be reduced to a single word again. Even when I am sad, I am still so much more. I am not the sad girl anymore.
My feelings can’t be explained
They won’t change, still remain the same
In the past I would not accept that
if people would ever see me this way
that would also be ok
Feelings so intense
Darkness filled up my life
Almost ready to say goodbye
But I kept my head high
Black holes in my soul
swallow up the energy
Emptiness deep down inside
Fill these gaps with something kind
The key of acceptance
Don’t ignore the signs
Here’s the facility to change something from inside
