about you

1. You know more than you think you do.
2. You are way too hard on yourself.
3. You’re also way too easy. You can insist on more. No one will die & it won’t kill you.
4. You’re really beautiful when you let your true feelings be known, even the dark ones.
5. You’re even more beautiful/handsome when you cry.
6. When you lose it, you’re actually really close to finding it.
7. You have a lovely singing voice. I don’t care if you can sing on key or not. When you sing, the world sighs.
8. Your hands hold the secrets of your history, who you were meant to be and who you will become. Let someone hold them. Even this you will survive.
9. You aren’t nearly as tough as you think you are. We all know already so you might as well quit trying to hide it. What’s the point?
10. Your tenderness is an invitation to be loved, not a sign of weakness. Pinky swear. No judgment.

And this little bonus: You are surrounded by people who are sad right now because they have no idea how to love you so you could feel it, so you could be transformed by it. The ones who act the most badly are the most sad and definitely the most afraid of trying. When you forgive them and love them anyway, sometimes a way opens…
