You cannot take on the problems of the world; this is not your burden to bear. You cannot keep hurting because those around you are hurting; this is not the way to make yourself happy. If you keep doing this you will forever find yourself struggling to keep your head above water and the people whose problems you have been shouldering will be on higher ground.

You cannot help the people who do not ask for it or who do not wish for you to help them. Stop acting like you are the savior for all of the down trodden; you cannot even save yourself.

So tell yourself the things you want to tell them, because you are the one who needs saving: even though you do not act like it, even though you would never ask, even though no one is offering. Say it to yourself.

Everything is going to be okay. I know it feels hard right now, insurmountable, but you have made it through worse and you will make it through this. Do not give up now, you are doing so well, so much better than you could have ever imagined. Just know that I care about you, you matter, and I am here for you no matter what.

They do not want to hear what you have to say: so say it to yourself.

Your words matter. It matters. You matter.
