you’ve got a whole life ahead of you. i cannot count on my fingers how many times you are going to look up at the sunset and smile, feeling oh, so warm. there are days when you are going to feel so unconditionally loved in the presence of people you deserve and who deserve you. you are going to be recklessly loved and hopeful. you’ve got days of peace ahead of you, there will be good things. but please realize there will be tears. there will be confusion and fear. you may even be experiencing some of that darkness now. this darkness, which inevitably will appear, is not a sign that your life is bad. this darkness is just an obstacle. it’s something that tries to turn your eyes away from the bright days to be had. keep your eyes towards the sky, keep your heart towards the love. keep going, better days are ahead.


“doing your best” equals trying as hard as you can considering your situation. you can do as well as you’re able to manage and not reach your goal, and it won’t mean you haven’t tried hard enough. it just means you have to give yourself a break to better yourself or your circumstances before trying again. next time you hear the words “do your best”, it should urge you to consider your capabilities instead of the best possible outcome ever. your best, regardless of what it leads to, is good enough.


Not to offer advice nobody asked for but fixing ur sleep schedule is life changing


Things that actually work if u try at them:

  • Drinking water
  • No longer making self deprecating jokes
  • Making sure to take time out of the day to relax and take a breather
  • Lighting candles
  • Counting ur breaths in and out if ur having a panic attack
  • Getting up and trying to do one thing even if u can’t do everything maybe brushing ur teeth but not having the energy to shower
