If only I was brave enough. To not let all the what ifs and obstacles stand in my way. To follow my heart, no matter the outcome. To not let my own walls stop me from breaking through. I suppose that's my only regret. The not knowing. Not knowing what was in front of me, waiting the whole time. Not knowing what would happen if I lost someone that meant so much to me. But slowly, you showed me that my fears didn't need to be shackles. You turned out to be right. You showed me that love can overcome any obstacle. You showed me that no matter what, you were here for me. That I was strong enough to face my fears. That I was enough to be loved by you. And that no matter what, I am enough. — A S a f e P l a c e T o R e s t © Sarah Doughty . Thank you for staying with me and giving my heart a safe place to rest. . Apologies for the typing typo.

Grief overwhelmed me and my arms moved inside his coat and wrapped around his waist. All I could do was hug him while I sobbed.

Peace is something I've been searching for. Sometimes I find it, but it's always fleeting. Perhaps it's just me, but it feels as though I'm stuck on a turntable, unable to find my way back to where I need to be. Maybe one day, I'll find that solace again. But until then, I'll keep trying to find my way through the dark. Find my way back to you. — T h r o u g h T h e D a r k © Sarah Doughty . Because I know, sooner or later, I'll get through it. .

thesarahdoughty. Being willing to vow your life to another human being is a huge step.

Being willing to vow your life to another human being is a huge step. It's admitting how much you love this person and the vows you make are the start of something new and beautiful. And as much as I love you, and appreciate all you've sacrificed for me, I often have doubts. . Not because of you or anything you've done, but because of me. The truth is that I don't know if I can ever love you the way you deserve. Despite the fact that you continue to believe that being mine is not only right, but it's the best decision you've ever made, I still doubt that I can measure up. But you never fail to assure me that I'm wrong. — N o R e c o m p e n s e / D o u b t s © Sarah Doughty . I need to trust your word instead of the voice in my head. .

Coherent thoughts evaded me as the blood drained from my face. A grim chuckle escaped me and I looked up at him. My fingers moved a fraction over his chest. "Can you repeat that? I think I'm hallucinating.". . He smiled, "I love you.". . My mind whirled and I let his words sink in. Then I breathed, "I think I loved you before I met you.". — D a n g e r o u s n e s s © Sarah Doughty . Loving is inherently dangerous, because you're leaving yourself vulnerable. If it's true, it's worth it. . A little something from my first novel, Just Breathe.

Having emotions doesn't mean you're weak or less of a human. Having empathy doesn't make you a pariah in this world, it means you care. It means you understand that other people feel too. And sometimes they feel just as much as you or more. So don't ever try to shut them down or hide them away in the dark like they're something to be ashamed of. Because they aren't. Ever. Darling, feel whatever you need to feel, because you're right, it means you're living. — F e e l i n g s © Sarah Doughty · It's okay to feel. To have emotions. It's the only way to process.

I traveled so far away from home, that I forgot to leave breadcrumbs to find my way back. And I suppose that's when the helplessness seeped in. That's when I realized I'd lost my way. I'd lost my home. Out there, in that wilderness, I was lost. Alone. Afraid. . It pulled me deeper into the darkness like a perpetual night without stars or the moon to illuminate my way. But my heart was still filled with love. So I kept holding on. I kept my grip on to hope. And I refused to give up. Admitting defeat wasn't an option. Accepting that I would never see you again. And I knew, that one day, I would find my way back to you. . After what felt like forever, dawn broke over that horizon and I saw the sun hit your face. My body, cold from the elements, exhausted beyond measure, warmed at the first glimpse of you. I held on for my life, and I found my way back home. I found you. And when I crashed into your arms, I knew I'd made it. I was home again. I vowed to never leave your embrace. I would stay in your arms forever. And I would die happy. — H o m e A g a i n © Sarah Doughty . A little hope can go a long way. Never give up. .

I was lost in my own daydreams, floating above the clouds, knowing I would eventually open my eyes and come crashing down to the ground. With no parachute to help slow my descent, I knew the fall would be my end. So I kept dreaming. I kept going. And with these reveries, I have hope. I have risen. And I am still flying.

@thesarahdoughty These pieces of us. Sometimes I think they're trying to pull away like a flock of birds. Flying away, leaving with nothing left between us. And that thought scares me.

So maybe that's what bothers me so much when I feel like the essence of what we were is floating away. Because maybe it is. We are different people than we were.

Don't you see? We are nothing more than a blackened solar system. A set of dead stars. What was once a place full of warmth and light — with planets, moons, and gravity holding us together — all that remains is a relic. A memory. A place where the gravity still exists, but once the light fizzled out into nothing, it left no warmth. A deep, undying bitter cold. An infinite darkness. And no beauty to see except what twinkled off in the distance. .

This life of mine has never been an easy one. That's no secret. But I'm alive. And that counts for something, right? I may have made a home in this darkness. But home is not synonymous with prison. Home is not a place where I can't be loved just as I am. Home is not a place where I cannot be happy in my own skin. Because these scars are proof of my resilience. To keep pushing forward. To keep fighting. And I no longer bear them with shame. That weight is no longer mine to bear. It was never supposed to be mine. Home is a place where I broke through every barrier that was erected against me. And you know what? I might be bruised, but I'm fucking brave. I've broken through barriers. I've overcome. I've risen. I've proven that I am worthy of love and happiness. I have proven that I am worthy. To be me. To become so much more. Just as I am. And I'm going to keep going without apologies. .

Oh, but how much destruction we can cause when we just want to feel something? When feeling numb is no longer enough, what are we capable of? Let me tell you this, I never wanted to say goodbye. I never wanted to watch you leave, piece by piece. Until all that remained was a shell. A husk of your former self.
