then love yourself

See all the positivity posts you read? The ones about self care and self love and validation? All those posts apply to you too, those aren’t just for everyone else. You are just as important and just as deserving as anyone else and I want you to know that. If you’re reading this, please don’t exclude yourself from the positivity. It is meant FOR you. You DO matter. You ARE included. 

For anyone who thinks their fanfic is garbage - every fanfic I’ve ever read from this fandom (and I’ve literally spent hours combing stories) - let me repeat - every.single.story. - was better than 50 Shades of Grey.

No matter how bad you think your writing is, I bet it’s better than:

“I feel the colour in my cheeks rising again. I must be the colour of The Communist Manifesto.”

“I’m all deer/headlights, moth/flame, bird/snake - and he knows exactly what he’s doing to me.”
