It's my housemate, Jackie B's 22nd birthday!!
Here are some other things you should know:
Fun is often foolish.
You are not a burden.
People can like you just the way you are.
Developing positive emotional attachments to words makes speaking more fun.
Looking in the mirror and saying "I love you" is tough sometimes. That's okay.
Paintings that "don't turn out" are awesome.
We accept the love we think we deserve.
You can be variable and flawed and still be good enough.
Both giving and receiving are important and take practice.
Fairies, angels, and goblins...
Saying that you need a hug when someone asks how you are often makes that person's day better too. If they can't give you a hug, that's alright. Not everyone carries one with them on hand.
There is room for growth.
I'm not exactly sure why this is, but life is better with love of all kinds in your heart.
