A message to depressed people.

Dear you:

You been sad for so long. You already forgot how real happiness feels like.

Don’t blame yourself. Don’t blame others.

I just want you to know that depressed people get sick because their souls are getting ready for a great future. And once you get out of there you will be capable of doing things you never knew you could.

If you’re going through an unstoppable storm don’t keep the pain, transform it into something inspiring. A story, a photo, a drawing, a song. You don’t have any idea of how many people can feel inspired because of you. Even if you are not okay you can always help others.

Keep going. ALWAYS.

The world do not stops for anyone, and you need to keep going, but listen, to keep going doesn’t mean you need to do it the same way you were.

If you don’t like any of the possible ways you could took, then build one. Build your own way, but focus on getting better.

Give yourself a break from everything you’re doing. It doesn’t matter if it’s important what you’re doing. Nothing is more important than your own health, and you mental health is not alright.

Do what you need to get better, but never stop fighting.

You have time, and you don’t remember it that often. You have time, and you are smart.

You are strong and nobody said it was going to be better from a day to another, so take your time and don’t feel pressure. Take the time you need but DON’T STOP. Keep fighting.

Remember that the only thing that matters now is your OWN happiness, not your family’s, not your friends’.

Don’t be scared of failing. If I did it, I’m pretty sure you will do it too.

Stop surviving and learn how to live.

Believe in yourself.

Don’t give up.

Oh, and I’m proud of you.

Much Love,

Firma

Thinking about life.

Life isn’t always as wanted. Most of the times we wish things were different but they aren’t. I have always been ambitious, I have always been deeper that everyone else, and yeah, that sucks sometimes. Most of the times I’m misunderstood. People just don’t get me because I have different points of view of life. I’m a fighter and a warrior, I fight for what I want, I fight for what I need and I believe there is nothing wrong about it.

Nevertheless, I know life is beautiful and I’m in love with it.

The world is a place full of very interesting things, and we all look for what we think is the best. You need to believe in something if you want to be happy, otherwise you won’t have any goals and you will feel empty.

Don’t be that someone who dreams about something but never works for it. Don’t be that someone who criticize somebody else’s dreams. Don’t kill people’s happiness. Let them be.

Don’t be scared of reaching what you want, you may lose, you may fail a lot of times, but that’s what will get you to success. Because success  is not when you get it in the first try, it is when you failed lots of times but you recovered and keep going.

 

Much Love,

How can I let go?

Letting go is never easy, and it’s even harder when you love what you need to let go, but believe me it is possible.

We tend to give a lot of importance to things and people that aren’t worth it enough. And with this I’m saying that sometimes we hold on tight to small things that seem bigger than they actually are, and the worst of all, it is probably harming us.

In my own experience I have loved people so much when they don’t even deserve it, and I’m talking about friends. Friends that have told me that they would be there for me at any time and that we were going to keep the friendship forever. Words like “forever”, “never”, “true” or “real” are words that makes us feel safe, making us believe in invisible things. We can’t see it, but it feels good, do you get me? This words also makes us expect too much, and watching everything turn into another direction it’s really disappointing, but somehow some of us keep believing that those words have a real meaning, and here is when we struggle with letting go.

The question here is: How can I let go?

  • First of all, as humans we need to know our own worth. We know or at least we have an idea of what we deserve, so think about it. Is it worth it? Honestly, just answer that to yourself, stop giving excuses to stick with it, just tell yourself the truth and don’t be scared of admitting the answer you already know.
  • Second, how much damage is this causing us? Because ladies and gentleman, we all need pain to learn, but there is a limit and we need to recognize when it’s time to let go.
  • Don’t overthink. Easy to say, hard to actually do it. You must know how exhausting is overthinking, this just makes us feel stressed and anxious, it can actually bring consequences to our health. Try to relax and let it be.
  • Finally, let the time heal. It’s important for you to know that you won’t feel okay from a day to another but in some months or even weeks, depending of the circunstancies everything will be fine again. Don’t pressure yourself to feel nothing, it’s okay if you miss it, it’s okay to feel a little sad, but keep in mind that you are better without it.

It’s hard, we all know it, but we are strong enough to do it. If I did it you can do it too. This year make sure to let go of everything and everyone who doesn’t deserve a to be a part of your life. There’s too many toxic people out there, you don’t need to have them near to you, and there are a lot of problems and struggles that are making a mess in your head right now.

It’s your time to be free, it’s your time to be happy.

Let yourself get you deserve.

Much Love, –Firma

Beautiful Stars

Sometimes life gets really hard, it becomes such a cruel way of surviving and you can’t explain to yourself what you did to deserve those ‘things’, but there is a thing for sure: you become a fighter, you become your own hero.

Pain is temporal, to quit is forever. Let’s see it in a different way. We’re all rocks and every time pain attack us it’s because a special light is going inside us to shine on, to become a star, a star that will show others their way and that probably would get to be an inspiration. This is why it hurts so much, because beauty hurts and our soul is getting stronger, is getting beautiful, because we learn a lot after we feel a lot of pain. We learn, and we grow.

There are a lot of stars walking through the street, but only a few are shining in the sky, those are the ones that have been through a lot and they just keep fighting. The more we handle, the more we shine, but there are some of us that don’t want to deal with it so they hide from the light and never get to shine, staying as simple rocks.

You are not alone, you are just shining and people are scared to look like nothing by your side, just real stars will stay with you and you’ll shine together finally reflecting in the sky. Don’t give up and keep fighting.

Much love,
Lucy Begali.

PS: this was actually a note I wrote to myself months ago when I was dealing with depression, hopefully this could help others.

Before you judge…

Before you judge, be sure you’re perfect.

“Before you judge, be sure you’re perfect”

Everybody judges without knowing other people’s issuies, other people’s life. We don’t know what other people been thought, we need to stop judging without knowing, because some people had been through a lot, people’s past is the reason why they are the way they are, we are not perfect, so we must shut up, and let people be.
