    Listen — sometimes courage is as simple as opening your eyes in the morning. Sometimes it’s as easy as making the effort to eat your breakfast without spelling their name in your cereal, or breaking your teeth on their goodbyes. Sometimes courage is the way you fall in love with your sadness, how you let it rock you to sleep, how you feel it and face it and tell yourself every single night that you can overcome it, even if you feel like you can’t.
    No, sometimes courage isn’t a big declaration, a common accomplishment. Sometimes courage is the way you slowly comb them out of your hair; sometimes courage is hearing their voice in public and not turning your head or having your stomach feel like a shaken up can of soda. Sometimes courage is smiling for your younger sister when your heart is breaking, sometimes it's telling her that love exists even on the days you simply don’t believe it does.
    See, sometimes courage isn’t climbing Mount Everest or changing the world. Sometimes your mountain to climb is made up of weekdays and months, made up of pushing yourself forward even when you want to nestle into the past. Sometimes changing the world means changing your world, as gradually as you need to, as gently as you heal, because sometimes courage isn’t made up of war, and bloodshed; sometimes courage isn’t made of combat. Sometimes courage is a quiet fight, a dim softness within you, that flickers even on your darkest days, and reminds you that you are strong, that you are growing — that there is hope.

    I never realized what a big deal that was. How amazing it is to find someone who wants to hear about all the things that go on in your head.

    Do you understand? What you are made of? The very stars combust in the night sky with the same atoms that make up your mind. Can you feel that?

    understand that life is
    not a straight line. Life is not a set timeline of milestones. It is okay if you don’t finish school, get married, find a job that supports you, have a family, make money, and live comfortably all by this age, or that age. It’s okay if you do, as long as you understand that if you’re not married by 25, or a Vice President by 30 — or even happy, for that matter — the world isn’t going to condemn you. You are allowed to backtrack. You are allowed to figure out what inspires you. You are allowed time, and I think we often forget that. We choose a program right out of high school because the proper thing to do is to go straight to University. We choose a job right out of University, even if we didn’t love our program, because we just invested time into it. We go to that job every morning because we feel the need to support ourselves abundantly. We take the next step, and the next step, and the next step, thinking that we are fulfilling some checklist for life, and one day we wake up depressed. We wake up stressed out. We feel pressured and don’t know why. That is how you ruin your life.

    It is common for certain things in life to happen to you. There will be heartbreak, confusion, days where you feel like you aren’t special or purposeful. There are moments that will stay with you, words that will stick. You cannot let these define you – they were simply moments, they were simply words.

    The amount of Instagram followers you have does not decrease or increase your value. The amount of money in your bank account will not influence your compassion, your intelligence, or your happiness. The person who has two times more possessions than you does not have double the bliss, or double the merit.

    I want you to know that it is not
    always easy to love me. That sometimes my chest is a field full of landmines, and where you went last night, you can’t go tomorrow. There is no manual, there is no road map, no help line you can call; my body does not come with instructions, and sometimes even I don’t know what to do with it. This cannot be easy. But still, you touch me anyway.

    "Are you okay" is such a threatening question because I understand that giving off any impression of discontent is unacceptable under the roof of the people who feed me, in the company of people who care about me. I couldn't stop myself from crying at work or breaking down in school and I wanted to swerve into oncoming traffic and every day became a blur of tears and the hallway carpet I would collapse on when I got home and your asking me if I'm okay wasn't good enough because you only wanted the right answer.

    "she is under no obligation to look beautiful to you. she is already beautiful, her smile already breaks hearts, her eyes already shine brighter than stars, her soul already burns with passion and the intensity of a thousand forest fires, and her heart already blazes like a comet. but you are looking at her so superficially, you just can't see it."

    You cannot use someone
    else’s fire. You can only
    use your own. And in
    order to do that, you
    must first be willing to
    believe that you have it.

    I really don't know how to deal with this anymore, and I'm just really not okay with this, and I miss you and I understand you're in heaven but I... I want to be selfish. I don't want you to be in heaven, I want you to be back down here. I don't want you to be there. I want you to be here. What am I supposed to do now? That's all I'm asking.

    why do you live in
    your body like you will be given another? As if it were temporary. You starve it, you let anyone touch it, you berate it, tell it that it should be completely different. You tug at your soft flesh, wish it thinner, wish it gone. You fall in love with those who praise the way it sighs under their hands, but who praises the way it holds up your weight, even when you are falling apart?

    You're 17 on the coast and the full moon is a large gold plate in the sky spinning. You're passing around a bottle of whatever you could get your hands on with six of your best friends, sitting next to the boy or girl you like. And this is it — constellations like roman candles exploding and the tide tiptoes gently back and forth. You're here. In a month they're gonna start calling you grownup, or f.uck up, depending on how quickly you adapt, and their motto on dreams will turn from “reach for the stars” to “keep your day job”. You'll learn to miss house parties, drinking out of red cups, and trust me music never tastes as good as it does when you are 17 and in love. But it's not all bad. You'll have your freedom, the most valuable asset you can own as long as you remember how to spend it wisely. Travel, pick up and just leave from time to time, never lose the spontaneity and sense of adventure that brought you to this very coast tonight. And good luck. Because perhaps to be young forever does not require the magic of Neverland or a strange elixir, but is something that we can always find in our hearts.

    i. You may allow your head to share its opinion but always leave the final decision to your heart—it is the organ whose single duty is to keep you alive, so you might expect it knows a thing or two about it.
    ii. It is always preferable to be annihilated than slowly dismantled. If you are unhappy in love, leave. If you are unhappy with yourself, change. If you are tired of holding yourself together, come apart, cry your godd.amn eyes out, run like a river, nothing in your life was meant to be done halfway. We are all or nothing, repeat, we are all or nothing.
    iii. You are, we all are, simply fragments of the universe experiencing itself—so for God's sake don't be boring. Be bold, be vicious, throw yourself hastily into each new day with the wild spirit instilled in you through a great many years of evolution. Most of all, pay no mind to darkness or shadow—the burning light of entire constellations is on fire within you.

    I don't know what living a balanced life feels like
    When I am sad
    I don't cry, I pour
    When I am happy
    I don't smile, I beam
    When I am angry
    I don't yell, I burn
    The good thing about
    feeling in extremes
    is when I love
    I give them wings
    but perhaps
    that isn't
    such a good thing
    cause they always
    tend to leave and
    you should see me
    when my heart is broken
    I don't grieve
    I shatter.
