There you go spiraling again

So deep into your thoughts

The thoughts that are supposed to stay in the back of your mind

Have now resurfaced again

Make it stop

Why does this happen to me

These thoughts should not even matter anymore

So why are they taking over?

You need to feel what you feel to move forward

Don’t ignore it

That won’t help any

Let it out

Don’t bottle it up

You aré important don’t forget that

You matter

Your emotions are valid

Despite what anyone says

We are only human

It’s okay

Cry if you need to


Whatever you need to do to feel okay again

Remind yourself you are that Bitch

Don’t let the past haunt you forever

I get it it’s hard

But in time

Time heals pain

I promise

But first take care of you and your mind

Because at the end of the day

Your mental health matters.

Go ahead and spiral but only for a moment

Then get back up and walk with your head held high queen.

You got this

  • Congrats for top story!!!

  • It's not always easy to let it out, we might need help. But this is the main idea of not being sidetracked by our ego chattering in the back of our mind. Let go and move on. Have some sleep, a walk in nature, a chat with a good friend and then find out what living means for you. So so thought-provoking!
