It may feel like you just don’t belong.  It may seem like everyone else has it all together and you aren’t measuring up.  You may feel like you don’t have the right to get what you want, to be happy, to reach your goals, to keep love, to be comfortable or whatever.  You do.  You deserve to be who you are and you deserve to live in your potential.  Maybe stop trying so hard and live in the now.  Tell yourself you can be happy and fulfilled and let it all play out.  Be kind to yourself.

“Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.”
Max Ehrmann
