I cleaned out my blog tags and deleted a ton of stuff, including a lot of horribly negative personal rants. It’s easy for me to forget just how bad I can feel when I get down, and I seem to talk about it a lot on tumblr because you’re such a forgiving audience. But it’s been a year of transformations, and I wanted to put something good out there this time.
I want to let everyone know that sometimes just growing older helps. Time heals. Practice does improve your skills. You’ll get better at those things that feel so impossibly hard. Sometimes not beating yourself against a wall every day and just letting it be makes the wall get smaller and smaller and one day you just step over it. Understanding yourself does make things easier. People love you. Things work out. Bad memories fade. And though things may still be bad or hard from time to time it’s more than possible to be happier as time goes on.
