Wear your tragedies as armour, not as shackles.

For once I need to choose myself, or else I’m going to lose myself.

Living with anxiety is like being followed by a voice. It knows all your insecurities and uses them against you. It gets to the point when it’s the loudest voice in the room. The only one you can hear.

The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much, and forgetting that you are special too.

Trust yourself. You’ve survived a lot, and you’ll survive whatever is coming.

Promise you will not spend so much time treading water and trying to keep your head above the waves that you forget, truly forget, how much you have always loved to swim.

If you’re not careful your who life could be “I’ll be happy when.”

Cambodia is one of the most bombed countries in the history of mankind, and has the largest amputee population in the world.

That’s why Purple Buddha Project handcrafts jewelry made by upcycling weapons of conflict from Cambodia such as bullets, bombshells, and other miscellaneous accessories of war through Fair trade Cambodian Cooperatives.

The purchase of each jewelry piece contributes to three pounds of rice for children at schools in need in Cambodia. 🇰🇭 🍚

I think part of the reason why we hold on to something so tight is because we fear something so great won’t happen twice.

Make sure you don’t start seeing yourself through the eyes of those who don’t value you. Know your worth even if they don’t.
