Hi! This week's Words To Live By are rather few, but to the point:

Originally, I found this image a long time ago on tumblr and I tried to trace its source but I didn't succeed. Then I googled the quote and found it on goodreads and it seems like it's part of a poem called Nejma, by the poet Nayyirah Waheed. When I found this photo I fell in love with it, because I feel like in my mind I belong to my parents, because they gave me life you know? And I also feel like its taken a lot of effort on my part to kind of get rid of this invisible chain that I have made. 

So still, to this day I think I have to live for myself, before making a decision I have to think about myself first, my happiness, rather than what are my mother and father going to say about it? And it's also a reminder to never lose myself in someone else, romantically speaking, because I have to be my own priority. 

This is it, friends! Would love to hear from you in the comments!

  1. Awesome! I really like your words to live by posts and I think it's such a cool thing that it seems like nobody else does. I think it's important to remember that we have to make ourselves happy.

    1. Yep, this is just a reminder. We have to think of ourselves first! Thank you Olivia! This really means so much to me <3333 Bless you.

  2. Ah, this is a totally lovely quote! And I can see why you chose it for your post this week.

    I think feeling a strong connection to your parents is pretty normal, seeming as when you were a child they were your world. They protected you, and cared for you, and did everything for you, you know? So in essence, you were their child. But as you grow up, you become more and more your own person and less and less their child. And that's such a scary and good thing at the same time.

    I think it's important not to lose yourself romantically, as well, and always stay true to yourself and who you are and what what you want and need.

    Really liked this one, lovely <3

    1. Ah, I couldn't have said it better myself. I feel like I am still going through that whole process of defining myself and my beliefs, you know? Deciding, okay, I don't agree with certain stuff my parents taught me, and it is scary!

      To be honest, that is one of my biggest fears: to never lose myself because of someone else.

      Thank youuuu! This comment was pure perfection <3
