to my sweet friend.

remember it takes darkness to see the stars...

it will be all right in the end, and maybe even in the middle. you will not suffer as long as you think you will. you are not fated to be unhappy. you are not destined for failure. remember who you are. be gentle. practice exquisite acts of self-care. you don't have to be as strong as you think you do. you don't have to be wise and certain about your path. your fragility is beautiful, and your innocence too. getting lost is another exercise in navigation. you can’t fix everything you touch. you won’t break everything you touch. don’t apologize if you’re tired. maintain eye contact with everything, especially yourself. fall to your knees at least once a day. say yes at least twice. believe in magic. befriend your fear. look up. listen. forgive yourself your great sadness. unlock what hurts. make a prayer for loss. you’ll know when you’re ready.  i promise one day you will be ready.

"accept what life offers you and try to drink from every cup.  all wines should be tasted; some should only be sipped, but with others drink the whole bottle."
