You Have Permission
 
You have permission to say no.
You have permission to say yes.
You have permission to say anything you like.


You have permission to like the things you like.
You have permission to like the people you like.
You have permission to disregard what other people like or think you should like.
 
You have permission to sleep more.
You have permission to work less.
You also have permission to sleep less and work more. It’s up to you.
 
You have permission to try new things.
You have permission to be bad at new things.
You have permission to try again and again until you’re great at the things you love.
 
You have permission to leave.
You have permission to stay.
You have permission to find your own true home and carry it with you.
 
You have permission to feel anger.
You have permission to feel joy.
You have permission to feel.
 
You have permission to let go of anger.
You have permission to let go of joy.
You have permission to let go.


You have permission to give up.
You have permission to keep going.
You have permission to not know what you’re going to do.


You have permission to be “too much.”
You have permission to be not enough for someone else.
You have permission to be just enough for you and you alone.


You have permission to be yourself.
You have permission to not know who “yourself” is.
You have permission to take all the time you need to figure it out.

 

You have permission.
