Learning to Fly

That's what I'm afraid of.
Not being enough.
Not good enough, not smart enough, not pretty enough.


Who are you when you try being everyone else's angel?
Where do you run to,
when you realize the reflection in the mirror isn't you anymore?
What will be your refuge from your own tears?
When is it time to stop and decide to follow your own path?
Why do you refuse to listen to your own words?

Will you let life pass you by this way,
you not voicing out the true you that's chained deep inside?

I am learning to have faith in myself.

Totally understand that feeling, sweetie. You just have to believe you are good enough. Perfection is what you are. The most important thing is how one sees themselves. xoxo

This is so beautiful. Things will be okay, and when nothing else feels right, just hold on to that hope.

Fe, I can relate to this perfectly now. Just yesterday, I decided to be honest to myself, and people around me. I did the leap of faith to break myself from this particular chain that has been binding me.. There are some consequences that I have to face, but it's worth this joy and peace I feel in me. Good luck with yours, dear :) you can do it.

I need faith in my own thoughts.
that they are important to voice.
and I need faith in my own voice,
to tell him what I mean.

but I can't find it.
won't find it.

Wow! that first photo is really inspiring.
I don't really get a closet like that, because my dad told me that became very stuffy. So now I've got a different closet but he's gorgeous too!!

Excellent! And you will definitely gain more confidence the older you get (believe me, I know!). XX!

I'm deeply touched by your loving, caring and encouraging comments :) Lately I've come to the understanding that sometimes we are allowed to feel weak and fragile, as a chance to see the beautiful things in life that's often overshadowed by the glittery fast-paced world. One of them is the beauty of friendship...
