Rewriting the Inner Monologue

Stop.
Just stop it.
It’s over. That was then, this is now.
Time to move on, carry on, pick up, get up, go.
You’re stronger than this.
This?
This is nothing.
You’ve been through worse and you will again.
But right now?
Stop.
Just stop it.

Breathe. Always remember to breathe.

Look.
Look at you.
No, seriously, look.
Don’t turn your head away.
Open your eyes.
You’re beautiful, you know.
Yes, you do know.
But it’s easy to forget sometimes.
Why do you always seem to forget the good and never the bad?
Stop.
Just stop it.

Breathe. Always remember to breathe.

It’s ok.
No, really, it’s ok.
Be sad. Be angry. Be frustrated. Be relieved. Be.
Cry like a baby. Scream, yell, curse.
Take all day if you need to.
But don’t shut down.
Don’t hide.
Don’t pretend you are alone in this world.
Because you’re not.
Stop.
Just stop it.

Breathe. Always remember to breathe.

Feel the love.
It’s there.
You know it’s there.
In and around.
Your heart.
Not alone.
Never alone.
Too much love to be alone.
Joyful girl.
Don’t.
Don’t stop.

Breathe. Always remember to breathe.
