The way people talk to you about others is a direct reflection of how they talk to others about you. Remember that.

Life is too short to stay quiet. Your voice carries you as much as you carry your voice.

Nobody pays as much attention to you as you think they do.

Nobody’s expecting you to do something useful every day. You shouldn’t expect that from yourself either.

Nothing that matters to you is useless. If it is important to you then it is important, period.

Don’t live every day like it’s your last–rather like it is your first. Get to know your space, get comfortable where you aren’t yet, try new things but not everything at once. and look forward to things that are coming.

You are only responsible for what you can control and influence. Focus on that.

Stop trying to be okay all the time. You do not have to be okay all the time. Its okay not to be okay.

It is more common to have a soft and protecting tummy than to have flat abs. Both is healthy, both is pretty.

Your teens are not your only chance on having a good, fulfilled, and social life. If you can’t find your place in high school you will in another environment. This isn’t where it ends.

You have the right to change your mind over and over and over again until you are happy.

Your life revolves around you and it always has. If you feel the need to stop and catch your breath, do it. time moves forward, but your life will never be able to continue without you.
