We all feel that way at times.
A little unsteady. A little shaky.
Hanging by a thread. Held together by nothing more than a breath and a prayer. It’s hard. It’s rough. It’s gut-wrenching and incredibly painful. And it seems as though there is no coming up for air. No light at the end of a seemingly neverending tunnel.
Hanging by a thread can be really difficult. And it sucks.
But listen to me. It’s going to be alright.
You can get through this.
Inhale. Exhale. The sun will still rise tomorrow. The sky will still be blue. You’re going to make it. It will all work out.
THIS WILL NOT KILL YOU
You might feel broken. You might feel as though you’re all alone and there’s no one there with you, for you, but that’s not true. There’s a choir of angels by your side. Angels you call friends. Angels you can’t quite see.
You’re probably feeling devastatingly alone. Adrift. You think no one can hear you cracking. Breaking. Coming apart. But you know what? You are so much more than you know. Years of layers, and lifetimes of experiences, and an arsenal of strengths to call upon.
You will not sink.
Others have gone through precisely what you’re going through right now. Albeit in different contexts. And in a myriad of settings. Thousands and thousands of them before you, with you right now, and after you. Really and truly. Your picture of heartbreak, your strain of pain is part of the human fabric we call life. Others before you? They’ve survived this. They came undone, and then put themselves back together again. And when they did, they left a trail out of the pain for you to trace their steps, leading to the light.
I KNOW YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME
Yes, it’s hard to have faith right now, but not only will it be okay, not only will you get through and over this, you will thrive again. You will be clear and vibrant and incredible. You will not only have more character and wisdom to offer the world, but you will feel more joy than you think is possible right now.
I promise you will.
You may walk with a limp. You may wince when you look back, you may regret certain choices you made, turns you chose at crossroads, and that’s understandable, but you will feel more alive, and much more you. You will be strong. And you will feel a curious sensation of purpose. And it will feel really, really fantastic.
What you’re going through right now is so difficult.
But it’s going to be okay. More than okay.
Because you are loved.

I’m doing something a little different today, and teaming up with Sheree of Posh Classy Mom to co-host Wednesday’s “Midweek Inspo” Link-Up. I’ve been blessed to know some genuinely beautiful souls thanks to blogging, and Sheree is one of those. A devoted working mother who somehow manages to look immaculately put together and poised all the time. Don’t just take my word for it, mosey over to her blog and discover this for yourself, and remember to link up, loves.
Finally made the transition to AV and am now on YouTube as well as Snapchat (sheela.goh), would adore your support through subscribing to my channel/adding my snaps.
