sometimes people who are sad dont always need the “it gets better talk”
sometimes people just want to hear “you are sad, you are trying your best, and it’s okay. you’re okay and you’re alive and that’s a big accomplishment”
because i know for myself unconditional optimism gets really fucking annoying. sometimes i just want to be sad and have it be okay that im sad.
don’t make me feel weirder than i already do in my own skin.
you see, the thing about self esteem is
it doesn’t matter how many people you have supporting you, telling you you’re talented, or attractive, or smart
because in the end, if you truly cannot believe it yourself
or worse, if you depend on those outside forces to confirm positive perceptions of yourself
you still feel pretty shitty.
Reblog this and I’ll write your URL down on a piece of paper and put it in a jar. Everyday I’ll draw out one piece of paper out of it, and send a little nice message to that person’s inbox :) it may not be for days, weeks, or even months, but the randomness of what day I send your message could be the day that you’re feeling your worst. And hopefully that message will brighten your spirits :)
