A lot of people have, people I’ve met along the way. In coffee shops, on the street, even in school. The advice that really got me at a time was definitely from Trenton Woodley, and I’m not sure if it’s because it’s what I needed to hear or if it’s because he’s really influential. But definitely something he told me a long time ago hit me really hard and it caused me to realize a lot of things. No idea why.
R.I.P to all the friendships where we acted like lovers at some point, and now we barely talk.
The first thing you need to start doing is changing the way you think, because if you’re thinking negatively, you’re not getting anywhere. Find positive things in absolutely everything no matter how shitty the day seems. Look at yourself every morning and think, “I made it another day and that’s enough.” I made myself write it all down so I could never tell myself there was a day when everything sucked. Even if it was just the simple damn fact that I got to see another day.
And go from there, but never hurt yourself over it. Start eating healthier because my god, it makes you feel better too.
Being dreadfully honest, I feel like I wasted years of my life being sad over absolutely nothing. Like I’ve been dead all those years, because I don’t remember a single good memory out of it.
And the moment you get out of it, you’ll wonder, “What the actual fuck have I been wasting my time on?” Because in the end, all that really matters is the happiness that you chose to find.
