  70. They'll tell you you're strange and bizarre. They'll tell you to be less of who are and more like everyone else.

Use it- be the most unique person in the room, & watch them grasp for it desperately

  79. ((((unpopular opinion: a college degree really isn't a necessity either))))
  80. Don't let your parents say that just because they're your parents, they can talk to you how they please. Demand respect as well. Yell if necessary. Teach your child the same. Never let anyone berate you or make you feel like your feelings aren't valid. No one should be able to treat you that way. Not even your loved ones.
  81. Capricorns will ruin your life
