“Stop comparing where you’re at with where everyone else is. It doesn’t move you farther ahead, improve your situation, or help you find peace. It just feeds your shame, fuels your feelings of inadequacy, and ultimately, it keeps you stuck. The reality is that there is no one correct path in life. Everyone has their own unique journey. A path that’s right for someone else won’t necessarily be a path that’s right for you. And that’s okay. Your journey isn’t right or wrong, or good or bad. It’s just different. Your life isn’t meant to look like anyone else’s because you aren’t like anyone else. You’re a person all your own with a unique set of goals, obstacles, dreams, and needs. So stop comparing, and start living”—Danielle Koepke (via laurenstaud)
I keep listening, cause I never had a choice, when it came to you. I’d love to see you, if you’re ever out this way. You sound happy, guess things are workin’ out okay. And I’m gettin’ better, at putting one foot in front of the other.
But if you ever get lonely, and you miss me, if you need someone to listen, even if it’s only the sound of someone’s voice who loves you that you need to hear, you know where to find me; if you ever get lonely.
I’ve been holding onto the shitty quality, live version of this song for a year and a half, waiting for the studio single to come out. Finally! And with perfect timing for my life.
