You came across as quiet but you filled my mind with words every time I looked at you.
Your feelings are valid simply because you feel them.

— something lovely my therapist said (via heureun)

(Source: noshameinoursickness, via nashvilling)

so. i need to get some stuff out.
i know what i need to do. i have school, i have to change the cat litter, i have to change the rabbit cage, i should do laundry, i should take a shower and get dressed. i should leave my apartment and go out into the world. 
and everyone has stuff and everyone goes through stuff and have their own struggles.
but pain is not comparable. what someone has doesn’t diminish what i have. sometimes it’s impossible to get out of bed, take a shower, and get dressed. i couldn’t do it yesterday, i can’t do it today. trauma is not logical, what it does to your body and mind is not logical. it’s not something that can be explained. 
so hannah, don’t be hard on yourself. don’t diminish your own pain. don’t diminish your pain either. what you have today may seem unbearable. life can resume tomorrow. life can resume when it seems a little more bearable. try not to care who you may disappoint, don’t think about anyone else, because the one that matters in your own life is you. you have to take care of you. if that means spending another day watching gilmore girls eating potatoes and laying in bed, then do it. do it until you feel you can embrace the world again.
try to love yourself. try to tell yourself you will be okay again. remember trauma and pain is not logical. try to remember you are loved.
you are loved. you are loved. you will be okay.
