I give you permission

I give you permission to grieve for the childhood never experienced.
I give you permission to realize that none of it was your fault.
I give you permission to forgive your father for not being everything he should have been.
I give you permission to let go of the anguish you have carried with you over the years.
I give you permission to love yourself for who you are, not for what you look like.
I give you permission to follow your heart without fear of being hurt and disappointed.
I give you permission to know that you are worthwhile and deserving of it all.
I give you permission to treasure those pieces in your life that give you hope.
I give you permission to welcome your experiences in life as they have helped you to get to where you are.
I give you permission to grow to be the strong, confident woman you have already become.
I give you permission to understand that you cannot change the past.
I give you permission to believe that ALL things happen for a reason.
I give you permission to find your whole, true soul as that is who you are meant to be.
I give you permission to make time for yourself without feeling guilty.
I give you permission to freely share what values you hold dear.
I give you permission to be loved and cared for so that you will never be alone.
I give you permission to embrace where you are now, not where you come from.
I give you permission to surrender it all as it is no longer yours to carry.
