“Do it for you.”
That’s all I’m going to say.
Not to please other people. Not to be acceptable to other people.
Not because other people can’t handle you as you are. Or can’t handle the truth of what you’ve been through. Or can’t deal with the effects of your trauma.
These are terrible reasons to do it.
Do it because you deserve more than this.
Do it because it matters to you.
For no other reason. For nobody else.
Do it only for you.
