You don't always have to be strong,
or composed, or smiling, or confident.
You don't have to act like nothing bothers you, or like you've got your shit together when you don't.
You don't have to pretend.
You don't have to do anything, not really.
But do try to remember to love yourself ❤
and to be gentle with yourself, and to allow yourself to live in whatever truth arises in this moment.
When you can, try your very best to be free.
