Things to Stop Saying to Yourself

1. “I’m no good at …”

Say instead “It’s just a skill, and something I can learn.”

2. “I’m such a failure …”

Say instead “I got it wrong, and everybody makes mistakes.”

3. “There’s no point in trying …”

Say instead “It maybe hard, but step by step will get me there in time.”

4. “Everybody hates me; I’ve got no friends …”

Say instead “It doesn’t really matter what these people think about me. There are others who will recognize my value and true worth.”

5. “I hate myself. I deserve to be rejected …”

Say instead “I am beautiful inside, and have value and worth. I deserve to be cherished and be treated well.”

Love does not have to be with another person. And it does not have to be beautiful. You can love that leather jacket hanging in your closet that your aunt bought you for your 14th birthday. You can love the summer breeze and the subtle smell of flowers it brings when it pushes your hair back. You can love the feel of the soft cotton of your favorite tshirt. You can love the way lights reflect off of almost everything. And you can love that boy in math class and never talk to him. Because love is never the same for anyone. The girl in chemistry class loves her boyfriend like the sea loves the soft rolling waves. Your mom loves you the way the world loves the universe. Love can be messy and it can be hard but it’s original and unique to each person. And that is what makes love beautiful.

“You used me. You let me believe you cared for me.”

“You would have preferred threats and coercion?” the antagonist replied. “I would have got what I needed from you either way, it merely seemed kinder to do it pleasantly and with the illusion of your free choice.” They studied the protagonist carefully, and took a step forward. “Nothing has to change, we’ve made a great team.” 

“But it’s all a lie!”

The antagonist closed the gap the rest of the way and cradled their head. “You couldn’t tell the difference. You thought I loved you - does it really matter if I actually do or don’t if it feels the same?” 

“Of course it matters - I - stop it. Stop talking. I need to think.” 

“And I need to know you’re not going to do something stupid if I let you do that, I would prefer this not to get violent.” They stroked the protagonist’s cheek. “But I need you on my side, here.”  

“You’ve been on my mind mind a lot.” Seeing a smile blossom on his mouth, she continued. “Usually covered in blood and screaming. It puts me to sleep at night.”
