If the thought is dragging you down, perhaps its best to release it and focus on something that will bring life to your soul.
As painful as it may have been, the only way that your “past” can hold your “present” hostage is if you let it.
I am fully convinced that you have everything that you need, to be all that you were created to be, at this moment in time.
Just like your mess got started with one simple step…. one simple step in the “right” direction is all you need to get started on your comeback.
I know that this is the last thing that you want to hear… but you have to give yourself permission to imagine what life can be like outside of your mess.
Something tells me that you were created for so much more than self-inflicted pain.
The only thing that can keep you from fulfilling your purpose is your unwillingness to do the work necessary to move forward.
Pain causes us to forget who we were.
It causes us to forget our purpose.
It causes us to lose our dreams.
