You are allowed to take up space with your emotions.
You do not need to shut them down or push them down to be loved and accepted.
You are allowed to feel everything; to own your darkness, to revel in your joy, to experience the entire spectrum of your humanity – loudly, boldly, expansively.
You do not have to become small to fit within the expectations of others.
To keep them comfortable.
You are never too much.
You never need to apologise for all that you are.
You never need to believe your emotions are not valid.
You never need to become less.
You are here to feel.
You are here to take up space.
To live with freedom and wild abandon.
You are here to break down the structures that have kept you small.
You are here to expose the lies that have kept you held down.
You are here to pave the way for revolution.
No longer silenced. No longer sorry.
