You’re fully convinced that your life is so much better than other people’s, that you’re so much more superior than they are because of X, Y and Z. You put other down so much that you convince yourself you’re so great when you’re just ignoring the fact that you’re fucking miserable.

People put being in a relationship on a pedestal. People act like if you are single that there must be something wrong with you, that you must not be enough, that you are unlovable, but all of that is bullshit.

It’s okay if you don’t know what you’re doing with yourself and your life, it’s okay if you’ve messed up in your past because your past doesn’t define you and neither do your mistakes. You are so much more than the decisions you used to make.

Sometimes you just can’t fix all the broken pieces, no matter how much you want to save them. Sometimes things are too crushed and damaged to be put back together because not everything that’s broken is meant to be fixed.

If you’re about to make a stupid decision they won’t hold back at all and will tell you you’re about to make a stupid decision. But once you go ahead and do it regardless, they will still be there for you because that’s what best friends are for.

Travel makes you feel alive. It reminds you that you don’t need much more than the clothes on your back, it reminds you that you are born to do so much more than work a job you hate, pay bills and die.
