  1. If you like someone, wait.
  2. Give lots of compliments, even if you’re shy. Everyone else is too.
  3. Change. Get a haircut, try new perfume, get new sheets. Become better than you were before.
  4. Eat healthier. Learn to cook something fancy.
  5. Get up earlier and watch the sun come up.
  6. Wear soft clothes, take a bath, drink something warm.
  7. Meet someone new, even just a friend.
  8. Become closer with your friends and your family. Call your mother. Cry with your best friend. Tell everyone how much you appreciate them.
  9. Keep your room clean. Buy some candles. Let the natural light in.
  10. Make a list of reasons why you’ll be better off without them. Believe they are true, because they are.
  11. Listen to new music.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. Go to the library. Don’t forget to look in the music section.
  15. 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.
  16. Make new memories.
  17. Try to find something to appreciate in everything you do or experience.
  18. Being alone is okay, you don’t have to surround yourself with people.
  19. Become your own best friend. Buy yourself coffee and drink it alone in a cafe. Take your time.
  20. Learn to love every bit of yourself.

How to feel better and become better by me (x)

I’m actually so afraid I won’t make friends here like some people are so tight already and I feel like if I didn’t have such a shit flat I would have better friends cause I literally have to set out on my own places and it’s so fucking awkward being on your own and like inviting yourself places but then I guess loads of people don’t really have like proper chummy friends yet so I’m probably okay but still I just hate the feeling that other people are having loads of fun and are best friends and all already :(

I’m really afraid I won’t make any like solid friends at uni like I get on with people and stuff but like what if I just actually annoy everyone and they’re like ugh piss off you’re so annoying like what do I actually do if I can’t make good friends

Plus my flat is shit I’m the only one that goes out at night to do things so I feel like a rowdy teenager not good my friends not good

I’m even looking forward to german cause there are loads of guys in the class which there weren’t really in school and that sounds really whore like and shallow but literally you do miss the male viewpoint and the thought of being friends with guys I can talk to languages about is anskjnsaxjnjsdjshd

After one class of linguistics you actually have like a different view on languages like before because I just did French and German you could just learn the language and appreciate the words and how it sounds but linguistics is like how the sounds are actually made in your mouth and it just makes you so conscious of literally your whole mouth and teeth and tongue and I just love languages so much like I actually do they’re my favourite things. Like it’s a scientific view and its so nice to have a scientific view after not doing science for like years but then it’s not even a science because it has like all the shitty annoying pointless bits taken out like I really think it’ll be a great subject eeee :)))

Me in two sentences.
Me: I won't get jealous.
Me: Who's this fucking whore.

"You don’t have to be pretty like them. You can be pretty like you."

One of the most freeing things I have ever heard (via firecannotkillabadwolf)

(via 000minimalism)

"1) Learn to put on your bracelets and zip up your dresses by yourself. There will be times when you will be alone.
2) Get on a long plane ride. Look out the window. Understand the immensity of our world. Understand your insignificance. Understand your absolute importance.
3) Press the send button. If you don’t say it now, you never will.
4) Do not sneer at happiness or roll your eyes at sadness. Be aware that apathy is not healthy.
5) You are more than the amount of people who want to have sex with you.
6) That pit in your stomach when he doesn’t text you back, it shouldn’t be there. No one should be able to control you like that.
7) Shopping is cathartic. Buy the shoes and deal with one-ply toilet paper for a while.
8) It will get better, but it will never be perfect. Learn to live through the small moments of happiness. When they disappear, remember they will resurface.
9) I promise that cookie will not change anything (except that it will make you smile).
10) Please, please, take care of yourself. You are everything to somebody. You are everything to your self. That alone is enough."
