“Get out of bed, make a hot drink and go outside.
You owe yourself that much.
Maybe you still cry in far too many public bathrooms, but I swear, you stay a few second less every time.
Smile at strangers if it’s all you can do, know that life doesn’t start when the sun rises or the credits roll, but when you decide it’s time to go after what you deserve, and you deserve everything because we are alive both only once and a million times every day and every minute is something new to learn and someone new to love. And if it all crashes and burns, as it so often does, cling on to the hope through it all and don’t ever, ever, ever let it go. Start your life again whenever you need to.
Repeat after me: It is not yet the end. It is not yet the end.”
“Just because two people are capable of deeply hurting each other over and over again does not make them passionate, star- crossed lovers. It makes them two people who keep doing terrible things to each other.
Someone’s ability to make you completely and utterly, soul-crushingly miserable does not mean they are a soul mate with some deep insight into your psyche.
They are just someone who is really good at making you unhappy.”
