sometimes self-care is binge watching ‘how to get away with murder’ while planning your future wedding while eating all of the chocolate because you’ve gotta take care of yourself, kid. even when the self-doubt keeps you in bed. even when guilt gives you a name you have already given yourself. so go ahead, devour your favorite snack. rewatch your favorite show on netflix. weep into the phone as you tell a friend how the days are heavy. rid your clothes and dance like everything about you is a marvel. say forgiveness. delete the number of the one who does not deserve you. sing your name like it is wind. i promise, my friend, there is enough room for you.
