When you can’t show up for yourself. And you need a little help. Friends are there to lift you up. When you go through tough times. Your real friends stand by you. I’m so thankful to my friends. Who have proved to be family to me. I’m forever thankful for their unconditional love and presence….

Permission to Feel: It’s okay

You are not weak because you have feelings. You are not wrong for taking a break. You don’t have to apologize for not meeting someone’s expectations. You don’t have to say yes when you want to say no. You don’t need permission to feel. You don’t need approval to be real. You owe yourself the…

I can’t love you well
