You've Got A Choice

I know that sometimes, when the world weighs heavily on your shoulders, you feel utterly alone and lost. I realize that there are many days I wonder if anything I do matters. Whatever you’ve been feeling, whatever you’ve been thinking, however you’ve been hurting. I’m here to tell you that you’re not alone.
There are so many of us walking the same path, with the same struggles, asking the same questions. Take heart, for we will keep walking beside you, hand in hand and heart to heart. And sometimes, just knowing someone is there can be the spark you need to get back up again.

I know that you try, you fight and you love with such an amazing heart and you wonder why you don’t get the same in return. You will perhaps not immediately, but the love you put out in the world always comes back to you tenfold. I know you’ve had a hard past and there’s days you don’t want to keep going, but don’t quit. The world needs amazing people like you, you’re a light when you don’t even realize it. 

Your life may not feel great and you question why you even try, but you’ve been down before and you found a way then. You can find a way now, maybe you feel like your dreams have been crushed and you’ve stopped believing in yourself, and I get that. I’ve been right where you are, before. Telling myself that I didn’t have anyone and that no one cared, feeling sorry for myself because nothing ever seemed to work out.

Life, love, happiness, I always ended up back at the same place, disconsolate and distraught. You’ve got a choice. You can stay in the darkness, learn to love rock bottom or you can choose to fight back. Take back your life, claw out of the pits and pull yourself out of the misery. If you can’t believe in and love yourself first, how can you expect anyone else to?

We both know you can do this, you can do anything you set your mind to. Stop feeling sorry for yourself and start taking baby steps forward. That last love that broke you or the past that’s weighing you down? Let it go, it’s not helping you find your way or grow. You’ll be amazed at how much easier it is to push forward when you’re not carrying the pain of yesterday.

No, it won’t be easy, fast or painless, because chances are, it will be none of those things. But it will be worth everything. Maybe you’ll tell me you can’t, that you weren’t meant to rise from the ashes or you’re too tired and old. Stop and remember who you used to be and the dreams you had. They’re right where you left them, just waiting to be found again..

Just like you. You’ve been gone so long, maybe it’s time to come home and remember who you truly are. But it’s all a choice. Your choice. I’m telling you that you’re not alone, that you’re worth it and you can do this. If you don’t believe, take some of my belief in you. I have enough for both of us. You can never write a new beginning, but you can always turn the page and begin to write new chapters.

Here’s the pen. It’s time to rewrite who you are, where you’re going and what you can do. Keep believing there's something new coming in your life, keep loving, keep moving, keep praying, keep fighting. Be who you are and stay Real.

You've Got A Choice.
