8 things I learned by the age of 18:
1. Everything takes time. Whether it’s getting over someone, making a change or finishing something, it takes time. And that’s okay. We’re always in a hurry and we forget to appreciate or even just accept the process.
2. Other people are not the answer. You may think others can heal you or make you feel better, which they might. However, in the end it’s up to you. Learn how to love yourself instead of waiting for someone else to do it. 
3. Grow. Never stop working on yourself, on things you’re passionate about, or on your future. Grow into the person you want to become - even if you’re not sure who that is.
4. The more that you wait, the more time that you waste. Don’t keep telling yourself “you’ll do it tomorrow”. Now is now and who knows what happens tomorrow.
5. Often, people are temporary. Accept it. It hurts, it’s unfair, but sometimes friendships end or people leave. Treasure every moment you have with someone rather than being afraid it could end.
6. Some days will suck and it’s okay. Find peace in the days you’re feeling sad, find peace in being bored. Without having bad days, good days wouldn’t be as good. 
7. Don’t let anyone determine who you are. Only you decide which way you’re going, only you decide what you wear and only you decide what you want to be like. Don’t let anyone take that right away from you.
8. Change is inevitable. No matter if it’s positive or negative, change is one of the few things you can always rely on. Don’t fear it, but feel reassured - you won’t live the same life all along.

I think you know you’ve found the one when you aren’t scared of the storms to come as long as they’re holding your hand to pull you through them.

i am a multi-faceted, multi-dimensional human being

I enjoy blood reds, black and blues, melancholy, sorrow and what goes bumping in the night

but I also enjoy pinks and yellows, love and kindness, sugary sweet and considerate

and i also enjoy browns and taupe, cherry wood and contentment and the chillness of being okay but not okay, acceptence and everything in between

i’ve been through it all and i’ve grown with it and learn to love every aspect of it because they make up who i am

boys are literally so shallow and petty and disgusting and immature and cute and lovely and ughhhhh why do i like boys?????????
