Often, it’s not about becoming a new person, but becoming the person you were meant to be, and already are, but don’t know how to be.

Embrace not just any reason to recover, but every reason. Over time, you will eventually understand and embrace one of the best reasons to recover — that you’re worth it.

Life has been some combination of fairy-tale coincidence and joie de vivre and shocks of beauty together with some hurtful self-questioning.
-Sylvia Plath (via quotesandnonsense)

I can’t ever really look at an image of a mermaid without feeling sad. I know that they are supposed to be these beautiful, mystic, underwater, creatures but all I can think of is the story of the “Little Mermaid.” Classic, Grimm, Disney or otherwise I don’t think the protagonist was ever truly happy. There’s no joy in seeking something unattainable, especially when that “something” pertains to the self. 


“Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.” 

— Rainer Maria Rilke(Letters to a Young Poet)

Are you a princess? I said & she said I’m
Much more than a
But you don’t have
A name for it yet
Here on earth.
