Give lots of compliments, even if you’re shy. Everyone else is too.
Change. Get a haircut, try new perfume, get new sheets. Become better than you were before.
Eat healthier. Learn to cook something fancy.
Get up earlier and watch the sun come up.
Wear soft clothes, take a bath, drink something warm.
Meet someone new, even just a friend.
Become closer with your friends and your family. Call your mother. Cry with your best friend. Tell everyone how much you appreciate them.
Keep your room clean. Buy some candles. Let the natural light in.
Make a list of reasons why you’ll be better off without them. Believe they are true, because they are.
Listen to new music.
Write everything you’re thinking and feeling. Write letters. Write happy letters, sad letters, and angry letters, even if you’re never going to send them.
It’s okay to be sad, but not forever. Sadness is not as beautiful as music makes it seem. Lack of sleep makes your eyes droopy, not deep. Wake up every morning and tell yourself you’re going to have a good day.
Go to the library. Don’t forget to look in the music section.
Remove them from your life. Get rid of the things they gave you if they make you sad. They’re not worth it. You will never be happy if you continue to hold on to the things that make you sad.
Make new memories.
Try to find something to appreciate in everything you do or experience.
Being alone is okay, you don’t have to surround yourself with people.
Become your own best friend. Buy yourself coffee and drink it alone in a cafe. Take your time.
Learn to love every bit of yourself.
”—How to feel better and become better by me (via fuckinq)
“Hey, I passed some girls today at the mall, the ones you wish you looked like. They didn’t seem to have the same sparkle as you though. I saw that boy, the one you wish you had. He was with a girl, but still looking at every other girl who walked by. I saw those clothes the ones you wish you could wear. They didn’t seem all that great since everyone else is wearing them. I wasn’t all that impressed with what you don’t have because I know what you already do have. You have a beautiful heart after God, the promise of a love story written by His hand, and a unique style and personality all your own and perfectly made for His plans for you. Why do you want so badly to be like everyone else when God knows you were made for so much more? You have a bigger purpose. A heavenly purpose to use what he has given you to bring honor and glory to his kingdom, and to bring others to Christ. When we live our lives with this knowledge, it really does affect everything we do. The way we see ourselves, the way we see others, the clothes we wear, the things we say, the guys we pick, the love we give…. Literally everything changes when we remember our heavenly purpose on a daily basis and make God the focus of our lives. And, trust me, there is nothing, nothing, nothing more lovely than a life that is built around our Savior. Chase Him today.”—Lauren DeMoss (via rahgodgirl)
