I recently received a message, the sender of whom will remain anonymous, that dealt, in essence, with the fears of being different.
I have a few things to say about this; One: Loving yourself is the hardest thing to learn, since we are taught from an early age to be self-critical. It is also the most rewarding. Self confidence can carry you through many situations, if only you are brave enough to exude it. If you’re having trouble finding something to love about yourself, somewhere to start, simply sit quietly in a safe place and think. When you find an aspect of yourself that you like, write it in large CAPITOL BOLD letters somewhere that you’ll see it every day. Every morning, every night, tell yourself that you love that thing about you, you are proud of it.
Next week, pick a new word/aspect/talent/uniqueness and write it next to the first word. Let your list grow.
Second: Fear is a construct. Fear of the future, of the past, of the present, it’s all something we create to limit ourselves. Fearing your peers, what they will think, or an event and what may happen, is a way to convince yourself not to live. To play it safe, so to speak. It is our way to tell ourselves it’s ok to settle on a life pattern, a behavior, (pretty much anything) when in fact it isn’t.
Be not afraid of yourself, of what makes you unique! Be not negative about yourself or your situation. Wake up every morning and smile because, in fact, you did wake up and you have the power to make the day whatever you want it to be! We are each of us, beautiful, and life takes all kinds of kinds.
Also, if it was you who sent me the message, I’m sorry for not replying. I’m unfamiliar with tumblr’s messaging system and i think i deleted yours by accident by trying to send a reply form my phone.

fun fact: the reason that the plural of goose is geese but the plural of moose is not meese is because goose derives from an ancient germanic word undergoing strong declension, in the pattern of foot/feet and tooth/teeth, wherein oo is mutated to ee. however ‘moose’ is a native american word added to the english lexicon only ~400 years ago, and lacks the etymological reason to be pluralized in that way.
Oh baby. Keep talking dirty to me.
