I once was scared telling my opinions
'cause I'm afraid they'd say it was all wrong.
But this time I will give myself a chance
to start believing in myself
more than how I believed someone else.

To read is to breathe
To write is to drink
To listen is to eat and
To wonder is to believe
Literature is energy for the soul
When the chips are down
No one would bet on you
- but yourself
I wish to experience sober the bravery of drunk
I wish to experience adult the immediacy of childhood
I wish to experience the unconstrained love of the innocent and unbroken
I wish to emerge myself in the hope of he who has never suffered disappointment
We all get the possibility to live life at its fullest
Why do we aim for satisfaction and settle for even less?
Mediocracy is a principle of averageness, but ought never to be a goal in itself
Unique. Human. Individuals.
Do not forget your pride
Do not underestimate the value of true joy
I do believe in charity
Do I believe in Me?
If it's not true
It wouldn't have felt so hard
And never thought he/she could be
If you haven't poured your heart
Till it's dry
You don't know what it's like
Free fall from the height
Something isn't right like
Silent calm before the storm
And you know the rest
Still he/she asked again,
"Should I believe in destiny?"
At the right time
A right place
No other choice
What tomorrow brings
Theme: Good night dreamers, Good morning doers
I accept there will be times
When we don't see eye to eye.
After all, you grew up different than I.
I accept that some day, place and time,
We will die.
I accept the idea that we have souls.
That there are things that can happen
That are out of our control.
But I reject the suggestion
That there's nothing we can do to change it.
I reject that everything
is black and white. wrong or right.
I reject that life is a one way street.
Because I believe in second chances.
That there are more than 2 ways
Of looking at things.
And most importantly,
I believe that even if you go down
One path, eventually, you can choose a different one.
I know that what I accept,
Reject, and believe isn't necessarily
Relevant to you.
But different perspectives
Can help you get through.
What to believe,
What not to believe
Life is relative,
so don't get deceived.
Only that which you
experience and perceive,
must be believed.
I'm sorry if someone made you feel like it was hard to love you
I'm sorry if you feel like being exactly who you are isn't good enough
I'm sorry if you look in the mirror and hate what you see because someone else said that you weren't beautiful
I'm sorry if you've ever questioned whether your life was worth living because some **** told you the world would be better off without you.
I'm sorry if youre reading this right now and relating to this.
I'm sorry if society's expectations of how a girl should look, what size they should be, and how they should ask, made you think that you were doing it all wrong.
I'm sorry your beautiful soul has ever had to question anything about who you are because the truth is, the world needs more people like YOU.
The truth is they're all wrong.
And I'm sorry for all the years you believed them and all of the tears you cried and nights you asked God why you weren't good enough.
You always were.
You were never hard to love, you were just loving the wrong people.
I'm sorry they wasted your time.
But its about time you stop hating yourself for not being everyone else's idea of yourself, and start being the version of yourself that you can live with and love.
