This year is not over but it is my year of learning the lesson of 𝘴𝘦𝘭𝘧 𝘭𝘰𝘷𝘦. I had a year full of joyful highlights and moments where I had to step out of my comfort zone. At the same time I had moments where I felt a lot of pain and the feeling of being lost overcame. I struggeled going through a breakup. I thought the pain will never fade -but everyone knows that every wound heals. If there is no rain, there will be no flowers. To realize that you put your whole energy loving someone else while you let go of yourself is not difficult. But being able to stop and to start putting yourself first is hard. To accept yourself, to love yourself is a hard thing to do. Especially when you are in pain you don't know how. You start to wonder what to do, you start to let yourself go. But remind yourself: It is YOU you have to love. It is just YOU you have to deal with. You cannot truly love somebody else until you know how to love yourself. Put yourself first, ask for help and stick to people who really matter and who really want the best for you. Especially my mom teached me wonderful life lessons during this time. That's why my tattoo has two little sunflowers - the bigger one symbolizing my mom and the smaller one myself since sunflowers are my mom's favourite. These flowers raise up towards the sun, striking for brightness and optimism. This tattoo should remind me every day that self love is a process. I have to give myself time to grow - like flowers need their time to bloom.
