I want you all to know that I love you. I don’t know who you are or what you’ve been/are going through, but I love you. You’re brave and fearless in a sense that you won’t give up on what you believe in, and in your worst of times I want you all to remember that you’re beautiful. You’re unique. You have your flaws, but you also have your strengths. There’s no one else like you, and there never will be. You CAN be whatever you want, you CAN do whatever you need to do, and you WILL get through this. If you’re going through a tough time- keep going. Chin up, gorgeous. Bad times can only last so long, and when they’re over you’re going to look back and think, ‘Wow, look at what happened. I’m so glad that I didn’t give up.’ This, whatever your ‘this’ is, will come to an end. And you will be stronger than ever before. Never lose yourself, and always remember those who stood by you, those who truly care about you, even if you think there was no one. There was. And they don’t want to see you hurt, emotionally or physically or mentally. Keep hope. For you are perfectly imperfect.

“Take a step back. Look at yourself. You are human. You are so beautiful. And you can be anything. You can be everything. Do not hate because someone broke your heart, you had to leave special people, your best friend betrayed you, your loved ones died, the kid down the street called you fat, ugly, stupid, worthless. Do not concern yourself with things you cannot control. Cry when you need to, then let go when it’s time. Don’t hang onto painful memories just because you’re afraid to forget. Let go of things that are in the past. Forget things that aren’t worth remembering. Stop taking things for granted. Stop taking life for granted. Live for something. Live for yourself. Fall in love. Fall out of love. Fall in love. Fall out of love. Do this over and over until you know what it really is to love someone. Question things. Tell people exactly how you really feel. Sleep under the stars. Create. Imagine. Inspire. Share something wonderful. Make something beautiful and then destroy it. Meet new people. Make someone’s day. Follow your dreams. Live your life to its full potential. Just live, dammit. Let go of all the horrible things in your life and just live. And one day, when you’re old, look back with no regrets.”
“Hey you. Yes, you. Stop being unhappy with yourself. You are perfect. Stop wishing you looked like someone else or wishing people liked you as much as they like someone else. Stop trying to get attention from those who hurt you. Stop hating your body, your face, your personality, your quirks. Love them. Without those things, you wouldn’t be you. And why would you want to be anyone else? Be confident with who you are. Smile. It’ll draw people in. If anyone hates on you because you are happy with yourself, then you stick your middle finger in the air and say, ‘Screw it. My happiness will not depend on others anymore. I’m happy because I love who I am. I love my flaws. I love my imperfections. They make me me. And me is pretty amazing.’”
