mourning + melancholia

 

You are not responsible for the way the world moves and shifts, for how situations change, for someone’s choice to walk away or stop believing in something you still have faith in.

 

We are not in control. We cannot make every little piece of our lives come together. We cannot force people to love as we love, or feel what we feel.

 

You must be responsible for your part, but find peace in knowing there is so much you do not/cannot control. You must find comfort in the acceptance of what is, rather than forever seeking what could have been.

 

Look back to learn.

Look forward to hope.

 

Love yourself even when your life is messy. Allow yourself to heal and know that not everything is your fault.
