Be your most honest self. Seriously, don’t compare your life, your past, your body, your scars, your faults, your achievements, your failures, your talents, your story or yourself to other people. That is the path to doubt, low self-esteem, sadness, misery, and just feeling worthless.

Who you are is one of a kind. There is no one who has your soul but you. There is no one who can laugh the way you do. There is no one who’s eyes light up like yours do. There is no one who thinks and feels the way your heart does.There is no one who can tell your story but you.

I know sometimes you look out into the world and see people living “better” than you. Healing faster than you. Falling in love before you. Finding success, peace, happiness before you. But what we see is just a small fragment of their story. It’s the same when they look at you. They are them and you are you. That alone means that your lives won’t be the same. Every person has their journey to go through. Take the focus off how far ahead they are, and look at how much you’ve left behind. This is your book of life and it is just as precious as anyone else’s. You’ve got your own story to write, stop reading into theirs.

The only comparison you should ever make if at all is who/where you were then and who/where you are now. Have you gone forward? Have you grown into yourself? That is what matters — your journey.

Let go of the need to compare and worse to compete. This life is not a battle or a competition. This life, your life is a gift and you will waste away your chance if you spend your days looking at the world and seeing everything you are not.

Get out of bed. Get out of your toxic state of mind and live. Work on doing what is best for you. Spend time learning about your talents instead of focusing on your flaws. Talk to people who inspire you and use the chunks of their story to help you write your own.

Don’t make yourself small just because you are not who you thought you’d be. Or where you thought you’d end up. Who you right now is valuable, precious, needed, and very much loved.

As long as you are breathing you have everything you need to keep writing your story. Stop looking all around you and start paying attention to what’s inside of you.

This is your story, stop trying to copy theirs.

Be blessed,

Don’t wait for the right outfit, the right makeup, the right friend, the right boyfriend or girlfriend, the right time. Nothing is ever right or left or now or then. Do whatever it is now. This could be the last day. Take yourself out on a date. Go see that movie and sit next to a stranger. Don’t wait to compliment that person. Speak up. Tell someone you love the way they smile. Or tell them you love the way they never smile. Go to that new restaurant. Leave a tip everywhere you go. One dollar goes a long way. Sit at the table with the boys that spend lunch talking about video games and computers and technology. They crave change too. Go to the dance even if you are all alone. Put yourself out there. Don’t stay in a comfort zone. Don’t let yourself be comfortable, ever. Life is uncomfortable. It’s awkward, raw, and messy. Compliment that girl with the flat ironed hair, the bouncy girls, or the messy braid. Styling hair is time consuming. Get your hands dirty. Buy that pretty outfit. You don’t need to be a certain weight or size or height to wear it. Wear it now. Walk with purpose. Don’t make yourself small. This is a free country. Use all the space you want. Sit up straight. Don’t slouch. Listen to an older person. They have stories to tell and advice to teach. Thank your teacher, they’re only human. And goddammit, don’t you dare ever regret anything. Don’t let time pass with the hope of it being better the next day. It won’t be. School sucks. You get over it and wake up every morning and eat breakfast and brush your teeth and pay attention in class. Do your homework rather than complain. Get help when you need it. Talk to upperclassmen. Talk to lowerclassmen. Don’t take out frustration on yourself, ever. It doesn’t help a damn thing. Go outside. Breathe the fresh air. Plant flowers and trees. Join a club. Nothing will ever be easier or better or simpler. Do everything and anything today, and now. Be impatient with life. There is no written rule telling you to be patient with life. Grab your damn chance now, because this is all you’ve got.

There are certain people who come into your life, and leave a mark…Their place in your heart is tender; a bruise of longing, a pulse of unfinished business. Just hearing their names pushes and pulls at you in a hundred ways, and when you try to define those hundred ways, describe them even to yourself, words are useless.

Don’t promise when you’re happy,
Don’t reply when you’re angry and
Don’t decide when you’re sad.

I looked at everyone and wondered where they came from, and who they missed, and what they were sorry for.
