words of encouragement - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
If your emotions feel as if they are a roller coaster, the best thing you can do is hang out with someone truly boring who loves you very deeply. In time your brain and body will correlate to their calmness and you will have the cure to your emotional pain. You will become stable, able to reach for emotional highs when you want to, yet in truth, happier because you can access the normal kind of "happy" that humans evolved for. It is a contentment that will come to you simply in the observance of nature, a song, or the chance to dance. I hope that these words encourage you to find the best version of yourself and to have the courage to reject the shrill and tempestuous voices of a broken world.
The emotions ebb and flow, thus when they rush in we feel motivated and inspired, the opposite occurs when they recede, as they naturally will. So learn how to sit upon your own beach and watch that emotional tide from a little distance. For in that slight perspective shift exists the ability for true endurance, the kind the marathon runner has, still feeling your emotions yet knowing what they are and that your reality remains the same. I hope that in these words, dear one, that you find the encouragement you need, the kind that builds great mountains from pebbles over a lifespan.
It is challenging in the darkness to shine a light of your own, yet you have such a light, you were born with it. When society functions well our own light is warmed by the lights of others, we are a happy flicker that is part of a communal flame. When society is broken that search for another spark of love isn't easy at all. So, love, in these times burn not brightly yet soft and mellow. Be okay with calmness and observing the mayhem others engage in. Sit back. Wait for someone who shows you real love, the kind that is dependable, endurable, sustainable and - above all - kind. Then you can let your spark burn brighter, because they are truly supporting you, because they bring their own inner fire with which to love you. I hope these words encourage you in a way that is realistic, that helps you towards a sustainable emotional life and protects you from those who lost their spark and would seek to extinguish yours for little more than a toxic ego trip. Protect your flame, keep your inner light safe.
You were born with full potential to become a great person of integrity, I know this as a biologist. What any of your relations are, or were, means nothing about who you can be. We are built of our choices, tiny decisions in tiny moments. So wherever you are now is only the beginning. You can reject hate. You can reject fear. You can accept chances to create loving bonds. You can learn how to see things from the perspectives of others, even those who are very different to yourself. In this, you can become a person of peace and begin to create the kind of world you deserved yet did not inherit. I say this to encourage you in a realistic way and rather than add gasoline to a world in flames. Let us together be the water.
