of teenagers and love

the worst thing is to drown in someone’s misery
to internalize their pain as yours
but understand their grief isn’t your responsibility
their problems aren’t your problems
sometimes they have to find their own way to surface.

“You see when we stopped speaking. I stopped eating. When we stopped speaking for some odd reason I stopped sleeping. When we stopped speaking. I stopped laughing. When we stopped speaking I stopped smiling. When we stopped speaking. I stopped living. When we were speaking… it was because I love you. God do I love you. When we spoke, I saw you smile, I smiled. when we spoke you laughed and I would laugh. When we spoke you would fall asleep next to me on the phone and I would fall asleep with you. When we spoke and you told me about your day. I never felt something wrong with you. I want to fix that. I never want to let you go. Why should I start now. When we spoke you fought for me  I fought for you. When we stopped speaking. I haven’t stopped fighting for you. Please don’t stop for me.”-terraburnettt

My Advice to teenagers and children on here that are insecure because they don’t think they are pretty

I can guarantee you that most people look akward growing up. Some more than other and some less. I was overweight till I was like 16 or 17 and wore braces, still wear glasses (never really stopped wearing them since I was like 4 years old) and thought that my face was the most ugly thing in the entire world. My eyes and lips too small and my nose was so huge to me. And really to me those things were extreme,  but for others I really had small eyes and thin lips and a nose that was slightly on the bigger side but if they saw my mum, they knew where this was coming from. I hated my face growing up. With 16 I thought that some day I will do plastic surgery to fix my nose.

I’m 19 now and I can genuinely say that I like my face. I think I’m pretty and I’m sure you will think of yourself as pretty once you grow up. Seeing my face now, I still have small eyes and thin lips and a nose that is not a tiny one but everything works out in my face. You will grow in your features. 

All those people that talk about their glow up…Everybody glows up. Some more extreme than other. And I can promise you, there will be a day when your ‘bad’ features don’t stick out from each other. There will be the day when you notice that your features are not bad, they compliment each other and they will fit to each other. I don’t want to change a thing about my face.

You will also love yourself, don’t let those doubts and insecurities you have right now, weigh you down, rise above them and accept what you look like. I know it is hard to love yourself but trust me, one day it will be easier

Isn’t it fucking terrifying that no matter how many promises they made, no matter how long you’ve been together, someone can get up and walk out of your life without a second thought and you have to carry on living because the world doesn’t stop for any of us
