If she had nothing more than her voice she could break your heart with it. But she has that beautiful body and the timeless loveliness of her face. It makes no difference how she breaks your heart if she is there to mend it.
Cinderella never asked for a prince. She asked for a night off and a dress.
You’re so stressed all the time.
You need to slow down.
Because here you are crying over an assignment that you got a zero on because you turned it in at 7:05 rather than 7:00, and I see you spend 80% of your day color-coding your agenda and setting appointments just to find a time slot to breathe.
You’re yelling because you feel like you’re not enough for the people around you, when your friends wonder how on earth you’re holding all that weight on your shoulders without crumbling down every two seconds.
You’re beating yourself up over not being able to be in a thousand places at one time, but baby, you just need to breathe.
One day all your acne will be gone just like all the gas you’ve wasted picking up drunk friends from parties that they didn’t even want to be at, and all this stressing you’ve been doing will mean nothing.
What matters right now is not what you’re doing with your time, but how people are going to remember the time you spent with them- and how you took your time to help them.
They’re going to remember the dances you do when you remembered to pack a lunch this morning, and the smile on your face that they see when you are able to stop what you’re doing and listen to all the jokes the people around you are cracking.
They’re gonna remember you saying you “don’t care” when things don’t go your way, and pretend like you’re talking to them when you’re really trying to convince yourself that everything will work out.
Thats what you need to focus on when things are too much to bare.
You need to remember its okay to not be okay.
You need to remember if you need a night to cry and crumble by yourself, that doesn’t make you selfish. Screw anyone who has taught you that asking for help or solitude makes you selfish.
Baby girl, you need to remember before you can save the world, you have to remember to save yourself first.
