“And kid, you’ve got to love yourself.
You’ve got to wake up at four in the morning, brew coffee, and stare at the birds drowning in the darkness of the dawn.
You’ve got to sit next to the person at the train station who’s reading your favorite book and start a conversation.
You’ve got to come home after a bad day and burn your skin from a shower.
Then you’ve got to wash all your sheets until they smell of lemon detergent you bought at the local grocery store.
You’ve got to stop taking everything so goddam personally.
You are not the moon kissing the black sky.
You’ve got to compliment someones crooked brows at an art fair and tell them that their eyes remind you of green swimming pools in mid July.
You’ve got to stop letting yourself get upset about things that won’t matter in two years.
Sleep in on Saturday mornings and wake yourself up early on Sunday.
You’ve got to stop over thinking why he stopped caring about you over six months ago.
You’ve got to forgive her for what she said against you in high school.
You’ve got to stop asking everyone for their opinions.
You’ve got to stop asking yourself “did I deserve this/ why me?”
Let it go.
Love yourself, kiddo.
You’ve got to love yourself.”
