Self-loathing is not a fucking character-builder. It doesn’t make you stronger. It doesn’t make you better. It’s just an ever-deepening, creepy-ass trap; a trap that is a huge moneymaker for corporations that do not have and never will have good intentions. You’re not disgusting. You’re not freakish. You’re not ugly. And you’re never going to be perfect. And holy shit, that is so okay.
High school is hard. Relationships are hard. Being single is hard. Pre Cal is hard. Having a job is hard. Not having a job is hard. Remembering to take your medicine everyday is hard. Eating healthy is hard. Having the will power to go to the gym at least 4 days a week is hard. LIFE IS HARD.
But the thing is, I know for a fact that you are strong enough to do it all. You’re strong enough to make it through whatever it is you’re going through. I’ve been through a lot in my life, but it’s nothing compared to a lot of you. I know that some of you aren’t told this enough, but you are so beautiful and you can do it. I am proud of you for how far you have come in life. I hope that if you ever need advice, need someone to rant to, someone to cry to, or someone to just straight cuss out, come to me. We all have those days where we just want to talk or we just want someone to take all of our anger out on. I will more than happily take the brunt of your frustrations to make you have a better day. My ask is always open.
It gets easier, you just have to KEEP GOING.
The messages that you guys send me every now and then are so awesome and make me tear up. You’re all beautiful. I hope you get told that every single day.
You guys push me to Keep Going.
You’re awesome! People like you give me the perseverance to KEEP GOING. Thank you so much. You’ll never know how much it truly means to me for messages like this.
