“You will not be the same person anymore, you’ll leave them behind, along with everyone else. You’ll become your books, your favorite coffee, the music you listen to, the poetry you write. You’ll be the art you make, the person you love, the mask you wear. You’ll be the fake smile, the real cries. You will be dropped, and broken, you will pick up the pieces on your own and see that no one else will be their to sweep them up. You’ll open the door for them to enter your life, and shut it on their way out. You will be pushed and pulled, you will feel yourself ripping from the seams. You will feel more when things are going wrong, and forget what happiness really is when things are going right. You will find that when they leave, they’re gone. Not everything deserves a second chance, because first impressions can mean everything. You’ll teach yourself right even if it’s someone else’s wrong. You’ll learn that happiness is different for everyone, and so is life.”
“1. Don’t try to piss quietly. Nobody in a public restroom thinks you’re knitting in your stall. They came to piss, just like you. And if you have to take a dump, do it. Get over your fear of public toilets. It’ll make life a lot easier.
2. Masturbate. Masturbate a lot. Talk about it with your friends. You’ve got the right to make yourself feel good and brag about it just like all the boys with extra large kleenex packages on their desks.
3. If you want the large fries, get the large fries. Hunger and appetite are nothing to be ashamed of, just human. Don’t ever feel guilty for eating in front of others. You need to nourish your body to stay alive. We all do.
4. Laugh as loud as you have to, no matter if you snort or gasp or literally scream.
5. Fart when you have to.
6. Always remember you weren’t born to visually please others. Forget the phrase “what if they think it’s ugly”. If you think it’s lovely, it is lovely. You wanna wear it, wear it!
7. Speak your mind! You can learn to do so without insulting others or shoving your opinion down other people’s throats.”
“It’s amazing how at one point in our lives we become extremely close with someone and then they become a complete stranger. You will pass by them without a word. Without a single acknowledging look. This person, who once knew you so well, who once knew your fears, your desires, your dreams, your past is now walking right past you, seeing right through you.”
“A thousand Dreams within me softly burn”
“I’m beginning to know myself. I don’t exist. I’m the space between what I’d like to be and what others made of me. Just let me be at ease and all by myself in my room.”
“People say to you, ‘you’ve changed’, or something like that, well, I hope, for the sake of God that you have changed, because I don’t want to be the same person all my life. I want to be growing, I want to be expanding. I want to be changing. Because animate things change, inanimate things don’t change. Dead things don’t change. And the heart should be alive, it should be changing, it should be moving, it should be growing, its knowledge should be expanding.”
