this is the recovery bee popping in, gently booping your nose and landing on your shoulder to remind you that things will be okay, even if it doesn’t feel like it right now. you’re loved, you’re worthy and you’re important.

I think it's hard, especially for those who were abused or neglected as children, to not internalize everything that happens to you as a personal failing, so here's your reminder today:
Some things are beyond your control or influence. It is not always your fault.
Just because someone hurt you, doesn't mean you deserved it.
Just because you did something wrong, doesn't mean you need to be punished.

reminder that anger isn't a bad emotion!! in fact, no emotions are inherently bad. your anger is usually trying to protect you. it's a part of you that wants you to be treated right. of course you should always consider your actions, and you may feel angry at someone that hasn't actually done anything wrong in which case you shouldn't lash out at them, but you're still allowed to feel angry. listen to your anger, sit with it, hear it out. maybe it's not always reasonable but that's not it's job. you're allowed to be angry.

hey. it's okay to feel and express negative emotions. you're allowed to experience the entire array of emotions available to you. you do not have to silence these feelings.
negative emotions aren't at all pleasant to experience, but they often tell you something is wrong. and it's okay for something to be wrong. you don't have to be okay all the time.
you aren't doing anything wrong by not being okay or having complaints. especially if the cause of that is someone else committing a wrong against you. that isn't your fault. you don't need to don't punish yourself for something someone did to you.

For all of you who are scared that if you don’t snap out of  trauma and start building your life now, your future will be lost forever - it won’t. 
I know it’s scary, I know it’s painful, watching everyone else progress, grabbing and making opportunities, while you’re stuck, in pain, dissociated, your brain refusing to do anything but seep panic into your blood - this will not be how you end. People start up their life at any age, everything will not be lost by the time you get yourself back. As long as you stay alive it will be right where you left it. The ‘regular’ progress of things doesn’t count in that you’re traumatized out of your mind before you even get to begin. They don’t count in the recovery time before you can chase a goalpost. You are not worse or inadequate in comparison to others - your reality demands a shift of expectations, and nobody acknowledges it. 
If your life had an uninvited trauma phase, it needs to have a recovery phase too. And you’re not alone. A lot of us are standing still, uncertain, and panicking. The strength we hold inside is unavailable and we don’t get to see it shine now, but we will. We will get to it. We will find everything good inside of us that nobody can see right now. Once we stand up, nothing is ever again going to stand in our way.

if you have had to drop out of college or school for any particular reason, be it financial or health related, i hope you know you are not a failure. i know many people have put an unbearable amount of pressure and emphasis on education and having a degree, but that is not a direct measure of your worth and your story as a person. it doesn’t make you less than anyone else and i can understand it is tempting to think otherwise, but it’s not shameful or wrong to take a break in your academic life to focus on other aspects of life that also need your care and attention.

i think sometimes it's so so so important to remember that you deserve love and you can give that love to yourself. that you don't need anyone else to give you permission to do something kind for yourself.
when you feel like everyone hates you and it all hurts, you can get yourself a snack and watch a show you love or draw or dance or read or sleep or listen to music or whatever it is that helps you feel relaxed and happy and you can enjoy it all by yourself. you can be gentle and let yourself feel whatever you feel.
treating yourself with kindness and doing something that makes you happy can be so revolutionary when you feel alone and distressed. we all need someone to look after us but sometimes that person can be ourself.
