The fact that you have a fancy college degree doesn’t mean you have to immediately use it.
The fact that you’re blue-haired and tattooed and pierced doesn’t mean that you’ll never be able to get a job.
Managing to make it through college does not validate you as a human being.
Forcing yourself to waste away in the one thing you believe you’re good at does not make for a full and happy life.
You don’t have to fit a mold.
You don’t need another person to complete you.
You don’t need dates and parties and wild nights at the bar to prove to everyone that you’re worth being around.
You don’t need someone to hold your hand every moment of every day.
And you don’t need to spend your time and energy obsessing over these things.
Because, at the end of the day, you are the one who has to live with the person you are. If you are proud of what you’re doing with your life, nothing should stop you from carrying on.
You are not obligated to meet anyone’s standards, ever.
Find happiness. Keep it.
And don’t let anyone ever tell you that what you’re doing isn’t good enough.
Because it is. It really is.
you have only
taking a picture
and looking at the
image and staring
in the mirror and
looking at your
you don’t get to see
the way your eyes
light up when you talk
and you can never
see how beautiful
you look when you
it’s really is kinda
sad that never
actually seen yourself
but I can promise you
I will be here everyday
