meredithadelaide There are those who will tell you who you are, and sometimes (but not often enough) those who will take the time to show you.

I've spent a lot of energy believing the former as though the projected opinions were indeed facts. Most times the opinions come from those who were intent on breaking me down, and I'm not sure why I have let them be so successful.

I shot with @lovelydecay while in LA and this reality hit yet again. Even through tears, I could see her working to pull me outside of myself to show me all the work I have done, and allowed me the space to feel proud. I want that for everyone. Everyone is allowed that. Everyone is allowed here.

meredithadelaide @lovelydecay, you see me. I'm gunna write it on my wall, in my notebook, and re-read it as often as I have to. Thanks for the borrowed power, Chloé. Since I left I've consistently been finding my own in the quietest of places. What a gift you gave. 1d

meredithadelaide to release

Validation of feelings seems to help unlock emotions from facts. Learning how to validate myself without judgement so I can stay clear in necessary moments. Beginning to dump my thoughts onto pages (many thanks to @lovelydecay) to slowly rid my sponge of a heart of the energy I collect from those around me, and justify my being. Already I feel lighter.

meredithadelaide to include

Up until recently I didn't realize I could include myself within the rest of the world. I've built upon my safe space inside my mind for years now, forgetting to invite others in, forgetting to step outside for any amount of time.

meredithadelaide to share

Not to embody. To stand beside, to show, to lend away, to ask for its return, to take, to hold and protect

meredithadelaide to collect

Reflections in others through self perception. I've wrecked myself a few times recently assuming the negative habits of childhood thoughts as though I've forgotten that I prefer to feel happy. Silly.

meredithadelaide to believe

I stood in the ocean listening to advice from an amazing woman last night as the waves moved us. The feeling of connecting to water is such a curious force in my conscience.
