Things that I have learned

  1. you can be friends with people who you disagree with
  2. tear up those letters, those notebooks, those assignments that didn't turn out well. delete her emails, her texts. throw out your past prejudices and love. it'll be okay, and sometimes you don't need that type of reminder
  3. can't breathe? move around - wiggle your toes, your fingers, your eyebrows even
  4. generally speaking, people want you - whoever that you is - around
  5. anger is good, sometimes
  6. run your fingers along the wall, your shirt, your own skin. it will remind you that you are real
