1) A boy telling you you’re pretty won’t make you see the beauty in the fullness of your cheeks, in redness of your lips at 2 in the morning when tequila is making the bar bathroom spin. He can’t take away the ugliness that you see in yourself, you have to do that.

2) You have to be ready to hear someone say they love you. You have to be ready, and you have to be willing, and you have to listen. Because sometimes, they won’t say those three words, they’ll put a blanket over you while you’re watching a movie, they’ll kiss your cheek when they think you’re asleep, they’ll smile when they see you first thing in the morning. But you, you have to be willing to see it, feel it, let it in. Letting someone love you takes practice.

3) Don’t make compromises you can’t live with. Compromise is a different version of what you want, not a whole other Universe.

4) Learn to say no. No - to a movie you don’t want to watch; no - to sex you don’t want to have, no- to a relationship that’s driving you mad. Say no - to things that hurt you, to people that extinguish your fire, to jobs you hate and places that are desolate. There are bad things that we can’t control, bad things that happen and we are sucked into and have to feel with every fibre of our being, but the rest - learn to distance yourself, learn to say no.

5) Don’t expect people to walk through fire for you - not your parents, not your friends, not the person you’re in love with. Love doesn’t mean sacrifice, love shouldn’t mean sacrifice. Don’t expect someone to give away pieces of them, so they could fit you better. And don’t feel hurt when they refuse to - it’s self-preservation. Instead - learn from them. Do it as well.

6) Don’t tether yourself to people. Learn to make connections, to love, with both your feet steady on the ground. Learn to let people pass through your life; like a summer breeze, not a storm that’s just been unleashed.

7) Learn the difference between growth and growing up before it’s too late. Rooftops and water fights and ice cream for breakfast can be a part of your life at 10, 25, or 35. But by the time you’re 35 you need to learn to say enough, to be able to walk away, you need to be able to love yourself. Love yourself the way you loved yourself at 10, before the world had a chance to fill your head with ugliness.

This is perfect.

Sometimes everything feels like shit and I want to cut off all my hair and forget things for awhile.

Sometimes I want to remember and let my heart swell and break sweetly. But other times I want to wipe slates clean and reinvent it all.

Sometimes I want to fall asleep alone but mostly I want you right by me.

Sometimes I run but I run because I want to be shown that I’m worth chasing.

When my lungs run out of breath and the dew covered grass cushions my fall the sun will bake me warmly back to life. I’ll stand up and my shaky legs will hold the weight of my body and my heavy mind. I’ll walk back. I always walk back because it’s home I’ve run from.

Home doesn’t walk but it always welcomes.

All this love for pumpkin that I’m seeing.

While not a fan of pumpkin, I’m glad y’all are having your moment. Because I know as soon as y’all’s little season is over then it’s egg nog time. And when egg nog time arrives, you pumpkin lovers better get the f*ck outta my way.

I will shank somebody over egg nog. So, enjoy your moment, but then kindly step aside.

remember 2001-2004 though???!? remember windows xp and kerrang and neopets and shrek being a big deal and beyblades and ps2 skating/snowboarding games and “i believe in a thing called love” and flash video sites and avril lavigne and wearing chains on jeans and t.A.T.u. and seeing LOTR and PotC in cinemas and how every boy looked like reese from malcolm in the middle

I hope this is sarcastic because if we are unironically feeling nostalgic for 2004 then I’m officially too old for this shit and I’m out.
