"I’ve found that growing up means being honest. About what I want. What I need. What I feel. Who I am."
"If you’re lonely, bored or unhappy, remember you are young. There is so much time to meet new people and go to new places."
"Breathe. It’s only a bad day, not a bad life."
"You’ll be fine. You’re 25. Feeling unsure and lost is part of your path. Don’t avoid it. See what those feelings are showing you and use it. Take a breath. You’ll be okay. Even if you don’t feel okay all the time."
"I want to tell you I miss
you with no subtext. No guilt,
no anger, no expectation
that you’ll fix it. I don’t want
you to feel bad or to tell
me it will get better. This
is where we are meant to be
right now – me apart from you,
my hands a little empty and
my heart a little sad.
I just miss you.
I wanted you to know."
"It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn’t use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like ‘What about lunch?’"
"I had nothing to offer anybody except my own confusion."
