The Jewel

To you who find yourself in a dark place. In the place where all hope seems lost and life appears to have stolen purpose away from you. To you in despair, anxiety and depression because life was just too much to handle.

Please don’t call it quits. Don’t cross the line, don’t give up just yet.

There is a jewel of truth about you waiting for you to discover it. It might seem nonexistent because of the veil of darkness currently occupying your view. But, it’s there. Dear to trust that.

The darkness is the false demands of the world, it has no right over you.

There is permission to be as you are. You are already perfect and that truth has its place in the light. You are worthy, you are loved.

Give yourself the space to be, the right to exist and shine. You are the gift of light.

Don’t let the world define what you are. Take back the right to be what you are.

You are the jewel. Waiting for you to discover yourself.
