Please stop worrying so much what everyone else things about you. Be willing to take risks, and if you feel something that isn’t pretty or happy or pleasing, that’s ok. Try it out. Don’t shove it down. All of that is part of you, and it makes you more real and beautiful and whole. You don’t have to be so good to be lovable. I love you and a whole lot of other people do too. Please love yourself, not just the parts you think are the good parts. And have more fun. Really. Live with gusto, sweet pea.
