Your greatest strength is in being vulnerable today.
Let your defenses down.
Stop hiding, especially from yourself.
Have a sense of unconditional self love and compassion towards yourself feel your feeling completely and honestly.
In this crazy hectic time no one benefits from seeing a mask you wear to hide yourself.
No one especially yourself can heal this way.
Remember in times of darkness you can be your own life.
Self love comes when you remember to keep your mental health in check.
So acknowledge your emotions and be stronger than ever before.
