"A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face she inquired, “How heavy is this glass of water?” The answers called out ranged from 8oz to 20 oz. She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If i hold it for a minute, its not a problem. If i hold it for an hour, i’ll have an ache in my arm. If i hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer i hold it, the heavier it becomes.” She continued, “The stress and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them for a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed - incapable of doing anything.” Always remember to put the glass down." - (via awkwardoverkill)

whatever you’re doing right now.
breathe, than take another breath.
you are so beautiful.
has anyone told you that lately?
and there’s sometihng more important.
you are strong.
sometimes it feels like you’re not.
maybe most of the time.
but please don’t forget.
you’re stronger than you think.
everyday, you wake up. no matter what.
no matter what you’ve gone through, you wake up.
take a second and appriciate that.
after all these years, you still have hope.
maybe it’s burried inside of you.
maybe that sounds rediculous,
but you keep going every god damn day.
and that makes you incredible.
but breathe, breathe right now.
sometimes things are too much,
but i want you to know that’s okay.
there will be times when you want to break down and cry,
times when you want to fall asleep and never wake up.
that doesn’t make you weak.
that makes you human.
it makes you beautiful, too.
and after all you been through, you’re holding on.
never underestimate that.
because you know what that means?
that means there’s hope.
it means that you’ll feel love and happiness.
pride and joy.
it means you’re still alive, but more than that.
it means you’re living.
stay strong.
stay beautiful.
never stop feeling.
but sometimes, just breathe."
