Hello. My name is Gian. I write things at: Poetry Gian.
I'm 22 years old and trying to figure out what it is I care about. Come for the calaveras, stay for the mermaids.
If you’re struggling, you deserve to make self-care a priority. Whether that means lying in bed all day, eating comfort food, putting off homework, crying, sleeping, rescheduling plans, finding an escape through a good book, watching your favorite tv show, or doing nothing at all — give yourself permission to put your healing first. Quiet the voice telling you to do more and be more, and today, whatever you do, let it be enough. Feel your feelings, breathe, and be gentle with yourself. Acknowledge that you’re doing the best you can to cope and survive. And trust that during this time of struggle, it’s enough.
Often, it’s not about becoming a new person, but becoming the person you were meant to be, and already are, but don’t know how to be.
