be gentle with yourself, life gets harder as you grow older, you will make mistakes and you will fuck up, people leave and people die and it fucking hurts to your core, but you will make it through all of it with the strength of the people who love you…remember there are far more of them out there than you may think.
Right now you can start counting all the things you don’t like about your life or start counting all the things that you LOVE about your life. In fifteen minutes of counting your life will be the same no matter which you choose, but how you FEEL about your life will be massively different. Your life will always be your life, but how you FEEL about it will always be your choice, and how you feel is really what’s important.
So choose to be happy, even if it’s simply because right now you can go on to the roof of where ever you are right now with a bottle of wine, stare up into a beautiful star filled universe that nobody has yet made sense of, and let your spirit and mind go in drunken wonder, laughing at the fact that this is all really chaos, that you’ll never truly understand why any of it exists or why anything happens, but can choose how you deal and feel about it.
The only truly sure things in life is that you will be born and that you will die, everything that happens in between, everything you put out into the universe, it will come back to you, what you do and what you get… that’s up to you, so never be cold to anybody, say no hurtful words, make no hurtful actions, and choose happiness for you and every single person in your life, even the ones who have wronged you, and it will reflect back at you tenfold, at 27 years old this is the best way I’ve found to handle this life in it’s best and worst moments, and if I find a better way, I’ll be sure to let you know.
