Straw Hats: "Just Be Yourself"
  • Does be themselves but accidentally burns a house down: Luffy, Usopp, Chopper
  • Does be themselves and makes others regret even saying it because they do some weird shit: Sanji, Franky, Brook
  • Does be themselves and is nice, normal, and kind: Vivi, Law, Sabo
  • Does be themselves and turns to Satan: Zoro, Nami, Robin
For years mental health professionals taught people that they could be psychologically healthy without social support, that ‘unless you love yourself, no one else will love you’ …The truth is, you cannot love yourself unless you have been loved and are loved. The capacity to love cannot be built in isolation.
—  Bruce D. Perry, The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog
Please, if you meet someone who makes you excited to wake up again, don’t waste your chance. Tell them how you feel before they slip between your fingers. Because never knowing what you could have been, it breaks your heart just as much as being rejected. Take the risk. Do it for me. Do it for yourself. Do it because you can’t let love pass you by. Not again. Not this time.
—  These words hurt but I need to say them. For you. For me. For everyone too scared to try.
