It took me too long to learn this. It took me so long to realize that I only have one life to live and I should take advantage of every chance I get and do things not because I think they will make people like me, but because they are things I am interested in doing. People are always gonna judge no matter what you wear or say. So give them something to talk about and be the best you you can possibly be. Don't let judgement get in the way of this one beautiful life you where blessed with and take risks, go on adventures, and never look back. Yes there will be negatives. But in the end the positives will over shadow the negatives and you will be a happier version of yourself. While your shopping instead of picking out "Trendy" clothes pick out the clothes that you like and think would look good. If there is a boy you like go and get him. LOVE YOURSELF. Your body does a shit ton of things for you from pumping your heart a keeping you alive to allowing you to see things like dogs or beautiful flowers. You can smell cakes and pancakes. you can hear the soft swish of the wind or the light whisper of your friend late at night as you tell stories over cvs candy. You are perfect. It doesn't matter if you think you are societies version of flawed. Because honestly society can go fuck itself in its ass for all I care. You, whoever you are, wherever you are. I don't care where you live. I don't care what race you are or what religion you practice. You are worthy of everything this earth has to offer. and you are beautiful. and you are important. And I love you, not for who you pretend to be, but for who you truly are.
