A lot of people are lost or stuck in life…

A lot of people are lost or stuck in life. In a job they don’t enjoy, doing an activity they don’t like but they want the approval of someone else so they continue doing it, or maybe you’re stuck with an addiction you don’t feel like you have the strength to leave behind. It’s easy to fall into the space of hopelessness when you feel trapped. These past two weeks have been hard for me personally, I’ve just felt kinda empty, no inspiration has been flowing through my soul and it’s been hard, I’ve wanted to just give up and lay in bed all day but I know I can’t just give up. There is so much I have left to do in my life. When you get to that place where you’re feeling hopeless and purposeless, think about how many things you still need to do or see, there is so much. Do not give up on yourself, you deserve all the beauty this life has to offer you. 💜

All My Love,

This is so true…

This is so true. You need people around you that are like this. When I look at my girlfriend or my best friend, they see the best in me. They know who I am and what I mean when I say something. They also just see when something is wrong. They don’t have to ask or you don’t have to tell them. They just feel when something is wrong.
My girlfriend can see something is wrong just by my texts or the tone of my voice.

My best friend can see it in the way I say stuff or how I’m acting. 
They are the best people in my life.

Not a moment goes by that I think I could go a day without them. 
When I was going through a really rough time, my girlfriend noticed right away and was there for me. My best friend sat down with me and told me no matter what time or what it’s about I could always call him and talk.
This gave me a feeling of love and that I was protected. Find does people and keep them close because they are the best.💜

Right now you might be living in the impossible…

Right now you might be living in the impossible. It’s impossible to see past today; it is impossible to keep living; it is impossible to eat; it is impossible to forgive my abuser; it is impossible to do… whatever it may be. The road ahead of you is full of impossible things but think of how far you’ve come. Think of the impossible things that you thought you couldn’t get past yet you did. Maybe you couldn’t go without cutting for a full day. But then you did. Maybe you couldn’t live to see another day. But then you did. Hard situations that we face always seem impossible until we are through them. So whatever it may be that you’re facing and thinking is impossible, you’ll get through it. You’ll look back and think of how the “impossible” became the possible. You are strong enough to conquer your situations and addictions even if it seems impossible now. Don’t be scared to face tomorrow, you can get through this. 💜 -Liv 

Both myself and many people I love deal with social and conversational anxiety…

Both myself and many people I love deal with social and conversational anxiety. It makes going out and meeting people hard. I want so badly for people to just KNOW me and care about who I am and what my opinions are. However, so many people just want to talk about themselves. Even when I can tell they are genuine they don’t seem to quite “get” me. So I started this mini experiment. I try to avoid as much as possible talking about myself for the first conversation. I realized that if BOTH of us are just waiting our turn to talk then we won’t get very far and I’ll be stressed out the whole time. However, if I take one for the team and let them have their moment first, sometimes they are more prone to let me in, and it gives me some extra time. This experiment t has opened my eyes to how much everyone (including myself) is focused inwardly. And when I turn myself outward and put the other person ahead of myself, I find that I grow stronger. I know I’ll have my turn to open up and make myself known, but it is strangely comforting to wait a little bit and shift the focus off of me. 
Anyway, if you experience conversational anxiety maybe that can help you, too. Just figure out how to get someone started on their own train of thought, and hopefully that takes the pressure off of you for a bit.

The first thing we need to learn is, the best way to recover and be stronger is to communicate as much as you can…

The first thing we need to learn is, the best way to recover and be stronger is to communicate as much as you can. The best way to get through rough emotions is to talk about them.
This is something really hard for me to remember because I’ve always held things down and tried to solve everything by myself but when you talk to somebody not only does it relieve you but the people you talk to can give you great advice.
Me and my girlfriend live on the other side of the world from each other. So when we call, we talk about the things on our mind. Sharing everything wrong and everything awesome in our lives and we feel so safe and understood with each other.💜
Don’t close everything inside, talk and be you. Talk to the people close to you and I promise it will get better.

I’ve learned that you can try to rush your life to get where you want to be, but it usually ends up not being what you really wanted…

I’ve learned that you can try to rush your life to get where you want to be, but it usually ends up not being what you really wanted. Sounds crazy but it’s true. When you let life play out, it surely surprises you with what you didn’t even realize you needed. I used to be in a huge rush to get married. I honestly wanted to be married so badly I didn’t even notice that my relationship was with someone abusive. But things ended and I was super upset at first. I have realized since then that I was in no way ready for what I thought I wanted and the person I had wasn’t the person I thought I needed. It’s difficult to be able to just let life play out. We have a tendency to worry and want to plan. But sometimes life’s greatest presents are unexpected surprises. 💜-Liv
