TRUST YOURSELF

Maybe it was the first time

I spoke my truth

and

didn’t give credence to the dark voice inside my head saying,

“Be quiet or they won’t like you.”

 

Trust Yourself

 

Maybe it was after years of keeping

small promises

to myself.

 

Trust Yourself

 

Maybe it was when I embraced the idea of everyone being

worthy of love

and

extended it to myself.

 

Trust Yourself

 

What it means:

I am free to speak my truth

and

open a space for others to speak theirs;

 

I am free to assess my actions,

and see them for what they are;

 

I am free to pursue my dreams,

not someone else’s.

 

Trust Yourself

 

Even when the world,

your mother,

your lover,

or

your own dark voice

says otherwise.

 

Trust Yourself

 

Will You?
