Don’t break to pieces.
You are stronger when you are whole.
When all the dam walls break and the waters come rushing at you, you will need to be brave. For you.
Because they will not always come. Sometimes they will stand afar off and watch from the comfort of their assumptions. Glances and whispers behind backs.
You need to stand then. You need to strengthen those limbs and plant your feet firmly on the ground.
Don’t shake. You can do it. Puff up your chest like you mean it. You are the door to yourself. You are the place where the buck stops.
Don’t break to pieces, beloved. You are are beautiful when you are whole.
