I know that right now it feels like nothing is ever going to get better, but I hope you give the world the opportunity to prove you wrong. Because, the world certainly doesn’t owe you anything, and it will punch you in the face a lot, but it’s also full of reasons to live (like late-night laughter, greasy diner breakfasts, quiet walks, starry nights, marathoning tv shows, a comfy bed, traveling the world with a backpack and barely any cash, good coffee, better books, and best friends).
You might not have found your reason yet, but I hope you give yourself the chance to. You might not feel like you deserve anything, but you deserve that - that one chance to find something worth living for every single day. So maybe right now, your reason to live is to find or create a better reason to live, and that’s okay. That’s beautiful too.
You might not feel like you belong in the world anymore, but people want you here. We want you here. We want to see what you can do. We want to see you create a wonderful life, because without you, the world has one less beautiful thing to live for.
