I did everything that your suppose to do in this quote, but I just get called names and shit because my happiness isn't enough for them. I'm not the same person I was in elementary school. I am so much stronger and I am me. I am where I wanna be
my friends remind me, by their very steadfastness, that truth, beauty, and goodness exist in the world, and that, no matter what, there are and always will be people loving people through thick and thin.
Allow yourself to believe you've risen above mediocrity and escaped the meaningless grind of it all by deliberately sprinkling in some bold decisions every so often. That way when you're craving a little introspection, you'll feel you live an "out of the box" lifestyle. Your mind will naturally cling to the memories which affirm your uniqueness. Thinking about the other 90% of your decisions would lead you to realize how remarkably average you are and that is far to painful to internalize.
