"I am a huge believer that writing makes your feelings and thoughts tangible. You feed your ego this way, but in a very good way. And when you feed your ego, you’re not looking to feed anybody else’s, the problem is, this is what writing does. It feeds the mind and the heart and turns them into one mushy ball."

"When you find yourself drowning in self-hate, you have to remind yourself that you weren’t born feeling this way. That at some point in your journey, some person or experience sent you the message that there was something wrong with who you are, and you internalized those messages and took them on as your truth. But that hate isn’t yours to carry, and those judgments aren’t about you. And in the same way that you learned to think badly of yourself, you can learn to think new, self-loving and accepting thoughts. You can learn to challenge those beliefs, take away their power, and reclaim your own. It won’t be easy, and it won’t happen over night. But it is possible. And it starts when you decide that there has to be more to life than this pain you feel. It starts when you decide that you deserve to discover it."

"Close your eyes & imagine the best version of you possible. That’s who you really are, let go of any part of you that doesn’t believe it."

I wish I had more friends that were into the same shit as me, with just as much enthusiasm.
