quotes. be yourself

There is no guarantee that you will get exactly what you’re looking for. There is no complete certainty that what you expect to happen will occur. Although, there IS the guarantee that your hard work will pay off. It may not result in exactly the way as planned, but none the less it will result in something beautiful.
Don’t compare yourself to those with picture perfect lives; they aren’t the norm, you are. You, with your pain. You, with your eating alone. You, with your outlandish interests. You, with your different clothes. You, who think you stick out, who feel like you’ll never fit in, like everyone is busy being happy because they are normal, cookie cutter lives fit for a social media world. No, no, no. You aren’t normal, and that’s okay. Because you are different , you have a chance to be a force of change.

Did someone say Pablo Neruda? Oh my God that guy is my jam hey listen to this for Flint - "Death lies in our beds: / in the lazy mattresses, the black blankets, / lives a full stretch and then suddenly blows, / blows sound unknown filling out the sheets / and there are beds sailing into a harbour where death is waiting, dressed as an admiral." I'm just going to send you Pablo Neruda quotes now brace yourself.

‘’..where death is waiting, dressed as an admiral.’’ 

“Loving yourself has nothing to do with being selfish, self-centered or self-engrossed. It means that you accept yourself for what you are. Loving yourself means that you accept responsibility for your own development, growth and happiness. When you love yourself, you pave the way for all you want and need to come to you at the right time in the perfect way.” — Iyanla Vanzant

Firstly, you're beautiful. Secondly - are you the originator of the quote 'always check yourself for unnecessary bitterness and negativity?' I just want to confirm because it is a meaningful statement to me and I want to make sure I always credit you whenever I post it on social media, quote it in a piece of writing, or share it with others. In any case - thank you for such compelling content always
