Vic. You can do it!
You are a beloved child of jesus
It will end!
You are beautiful inside and out. You exude compassion and service to others. Take time for you. You're worth it!
Trust yourself!
You are amazing! Look at what you have achieved. There is so much more to come. And even if you fail, embrace it.
You're enough
You can’t pour from empty vessel. Selfcare is important
I can do all things through Christ who is my strength
Take time to enjoy the present instead of focusing on the past.
You can do it!
Having mental health issues doesn't make me less of a person.
It's okay to not be okay.
You are loved and you are enough.
Going through mental health struggles doesn't make you weak. The fact that you can admit that you're not okay — and the desire to overcome the struggle — takes courage.
Learn to love yourself first before you can shower people around with with love <3
You will discover your best self very soon! Smile!
Keep doing your best and do it with confidence <3
I love you
You are enough
Keep pushing forward.
What cannot kill me can only make me stronger!
You're doing okay
I contribute more than I think, I am more valued than I think, I am not as critically judged for my flaws as I think. Worrying and being scared is ok, but so is just trying, just asking, just learning
It's always challenging the negative emotions that seem to stick a knife straight into the wounds we forgot we had, the ones still healing, slowly, behind the surface. We can switch this narrative.
Keep working hard as in the start no one will be clapping for you
All is well and everything is ok
