Ever gotten to a point in your life where….

You are the life of the party but have no life within?

Your inbox is full yet you have no one to talk to?

You have everyone to text but yet you feel empty inside?

You have everyone to follow but none to walk with?

You mask your sadness with the ideal life?

You drink to drown your pain yet the agony learns how to swim?

Your social media pages are a stage for your highlight reels yet your reality is scrambled?

You feel like on the outside you have the perfect life but on the inside you have a jaded life?

You feel like you are flying high in the sky but you are very low on the inside?

You find it difficult to explain what is going on in your head because you don’t understand it yourself?

You have many friends but feel like no one really knows you?

You smile when you want to cry?

You talk but what you really yearn for is to be quiet?

You spend more time on video chats than face to face?

You are surrounded by people yet you feel completely alone?

You tend to document the moments you think people will love instead of the moments you are the most in love with yourself?

You don’t know your own darkness thus struggle to deal with other people’s darkness?

Sometimes, You Have to Take a Step Back to See That You’re Moving Forward in The Right Direction!


Before I ask you to sit with me, I must be able to sit with myself,

Before I ask you to accept my pain, I have to accept the pain myself,

Before I ask you to love me, I have to be madly in love with myself.
