“I wanna know what you see when you look in the mirror on a day you’re feeling good. I wanna know what you see in the mirror on a day you’re feeling bad. I wanna know the first person who ever taught you your beauty could ever be reflected on a lousy piece of glass”—Andrea Gibson (via andswimgood)
Recently, I've been thinking a lot of the cards I've been dealt this past semester.
I’m so grateful.
For my family, for the people who love me and want to stay in my life, for the people who recently drifted so far out of my life that they didn’t have the decency to wish me “happy birthday”. I’m mostly grateful for everything I have learned and come to realize in the last 3-4 months.
I don’t care that you didn’t wish me a happy birthday. I care that you never said you’re sorry.
I’ve realized that the people who don’t fess up to what they’ve done and the people who won’t make time to keep you in their lives don’t actually deserve to be in yours. Regardless of how much you THINK you care about them and how much you THOUGHT they cared about you. None of it matters. If you can’t call them up at 2 in the morning and actually get them to pick up the damn phone to say hello, Good Riddance.
Is it wrong that I’m excited to finish school so I can go to the gym all the time and start seeing myself as the person I see in my mind?
I didn’t think so.
Also, I’m fucking awesome. And so are my friends. And I’m 21 and I can’t wait to get a drink with my professors on friday.
thank you so so much! that really means something to me. i really am trying to move past that & realize that i really am okay just the way i am.
It’s so hard to stop looking around thinking, “why can’t I be pretty like her?” Ugh. But that mindset can really hold you back from such wonderful things. I’ve found that if you believe you’re beautiful, it shows and people start to believe it, too. I’ve recently discovered this song, and it speaks to me a lot regarding this issue. Stay beautiful, lady! <3 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XBHqN1fYsG4
