You are in control of the situation. Breathe. Don’t cry. Things will be okay. You can do this, you can fix whatever you’re worried about, you can pay that bill, you can talk to your significant other and communicate, you can get over them, you can do better in school, you can manage your time, and you will be able to do what is it you need to. Take your time. Think.
Control your thoughts, and you will be able to control the way in which the world appears.
Think highly of events; if it’s good, see it’s beauty. If it’s bad, seek for growth. Everything that happens has a reason, purpose, and difference that it will make. So take a moment, and choose to see the impact that your thoughts have on your life.

Be yourself. No, not the person that everyone expects you to be. No, not the one that you are pressured into being. But your TRUE self. Only you know who this individual is, so meet them, greet them, and stay close to them.
There are still loyal people in this world. There are people who will never hurt you. There are people you can trust. Keep believing this, no matter how many times you’ve been hurt, and you will find people who still know how to love.
