You are not who you used to be.
In the moments where you are hard on yourself because you do not feel you have made it far enough, I hope you can remember how far you have come. I hope you can remember that there have been seasons of your life where it seemed like it would be impossible to make it here. You never saw yourself getting through the heartbreak. You never saw yourself overcoming the doubt. You never thought that you would get a year older, and rise up ten times stronger. But you did. And you must continue to give yourself credit for this. Just because no one has taken the time to notice your progress does not mean that you are not growing. You are still changing in beautiful ways. You are not who you used to be. You are growing wiser everyday and you are stronger than you think.
