30-Day Challenge: Day 3

Favorite Quote

The thing is, I don’t have a favorite quote. I’m not into those inspirational one-liners. I like some here and there but I’ve never had one which I treasured in my heart, one that I use as my driving force. So instead, I’ll share with you two poems that speak to me.

First is…

The second one I read from theglasschild.tumblr.com

“You’re going to be sad.
You’re going to want to scream and punch things. 
Do it.
Let out every ounce of anger you have.
Sit on the floor and cry until you feel numb. 
Listen to songs that make your heart sink to your feet.
Write angry letters to all the people who have broken you, left you, ignored you or hurt you.
Throw your hairbrush at the wall.
Do it twelve times.
Do it until you feel like you can breathe again.

You’re going to be sad.
You’re going to want to hurt yourself.
Don’t you dare do it.
Sit on the floor and watch cartoons like you did when you were little.
Listen to songs that make you want to dance around your bedroom in your underwear at 3 A.M.
Make paper airplanes out of those angry letters and watch them soar into the fireplace.
Brush all the knots out of your hair and say “I am worth it” into the mirror.
Say it twelve times.
Say it until you feel like you can breathe again.

You’re going to be sad.
You’re going to get through it.”
