Under the surface I hide my nerves and it worsens, I worry something is gonna hurt us
Under the surface
The ship doesn’t swerve as it heard how big the iceberg is Under the surface
I think about my purpose
Can I somehow preserve this?
If I could shake the crushing weight
Of expectations would that free some room up for joy?
Or relaxation? Or simple pleasure?
Instead we measure this growing pressure
Keeps growing, keep going
‘Cause all we know is
Pressure like a drip, drip, drip that’ll never stop, woah
Pressure that’ll tip, tip, tip ’til you just go pop, woah-oh-oh
Give it to your sister, it doesn’t hurt and
See if she can handle every family burden
Watch as she buckles and bends but never breaks
🎶: Surface Pressure – @encantomovie
Showing my truest self.
Sitting my with feelings, acknowledging them, understanding them, listening them all while not trying to change them.
I am allowed to leave situations, people, and relationships that aren’t meant for me.
I stayed for a long time thinking I had no other choice.
When I allowed myself to step away from things that didn’t align with me, I discovered freedom.
It’s hard to leave, but I knew that if I stayed, it would hurt me a lifetime.
When shrinking myself stopped being the default, I started to see what I wanted and needed.
Settling and people-pleasing kept me stuck in a life that disregarded my truest self and violated my boundaries.
I deserve to be in a place where my highest and best self is reached. And I’m surrounded by pure love and light.
Being vulnerable, trusting myself and my decisions while standing up for my heart and soul is pure magic.
Leveling up on the road to self-love, healing, and caring for my soul.
Resting with my loved ones and my books, I know that these feelings are valid, needed and I am worthy.
Be sure to take care of yourself, for you are the most important person in your life.
