Every addiction arises from an unconscious refusal to face and move through your own pain. Every addiction starts with pain and ends with pain. Whatever the substance you are addicted to - alcohol, food, legal or illegal drugs, or a person - you are using something or somebody to cover up your pain.
Eckhart Tolle (via occult101)
You want someone to love you. Do you love yourself?
You want someone to need you. Do you take care of your own needs?
You want someone to care for you. Do you care for yourself?
You want someone to be your friend. Are you a friend or an ally to yourself?
You want to be needed. Do you want you?
You want someone to honor you and be faithful to you. Do you honor yourself? Are you faithful to your well being?
You want someone to be proud of you. Are you proud of yourself and your choices?

-You do not need to be sicker to get help.
- You do not need to self harm or starve yourself to ‘prove’ that you’re struggling.
- You deserve help, you are worth it.
If you’re struggling, you deserve to get help. No ifs. No buts!
When you grow up as a girl, the world tells you the things that you are supposed to be: emotional, loving, beautiful, wanted. And then when you are those things, the world tells you they are inferior: illogical, weak, vain, empty.

You are worthy of love and respect. You are beautiful, gifted, and intelligent. Don’t let the storm make you forget that.
