" I love you — I’m not afraid to admit that, even if it isn’t reciprocated — but I love myself more. And I must start taking care of the things I love. "
"

When you’re sad:

1. Write letters to the people you love. Don’t seal them; don’t send them. Instead, stick them between the pages of library books.

2. Eat raspberries off your fingertips.

3. Venture outside and observe natural life. Watch a honey bee suck the nectar from lavender plants. Watch a snail slowly make its way towards the shade of a tree. Watch a hummingbird innocently fly above your head. Realize how insignificant you are.

4. Smile at strangers; say hello. It will improve their day and your own.

5. Write lists. They can be about anything.

6. Read several pages of the dictionary. Learn new words. Write down the ones you wish to remember.

7. Never feel compelled to apologize when you don’t feel sorry. It’s okay that you’re honest. It’s okay that you have a different opinion from someone else.

8. Read books and watch movies from your childhood. A healthy dose of nostalgia is okay. Immerse yourself in your past innocence.

9. Walk to a park and get on a swing. Go as high as you can; feel limitless. The world is yours.

10. Eat if you’re hungry. Food is not the enemy. You are a human and need food to survive. You deserve to eat. Put those raspberries on your fingers and sprinkle sugar on your tongue. Taste the summer breeze and sweet aroma of jasmine flowers.

11. Don’t marinate in your sadness. You are not a steak. You are a person; you’re irreplaceable. Open yourself up to contentment. Bathe in the rivers of Glee. Go for hikes with Satisfaction. Sleep in a warm cocoon of blankets with Bliss. Let endless happiness overcome your hopeless sadness. You deserve to be happy. If life is a game and you are the referee, be biased for once and let happiness win.

" Look at you. You’re so young but you’re so sad. And what’s there to be sad about? A boy? A girl? Stop it. Give it time and in a couple months you’ll look back and laugh at pictures of them with your friends. They aren’t as special as you make it seem. Or maybe I was wrong. Maybe it’s school? Listen school doesn’t measure intelligence. You have so much potential. Maybe you failed that chemistry test or totally bombed your math final. Who cares? You were bound to forget the material 10 seconds after the exam anyway, right? Just take a deep breathe and try hard to do well anyway.You’re great at something, just not something that school offers. You can get through this. But maybe I’m way over my head. And it’s not school or a boy. Maybe you don’t have many friends and you’re lonely. Maybe your parents just won’t stop making you angry. Maybe you should just focus on the positive instead of the negative. Step outside. Wow, look at the color of the sky today. Can you hear the sound of the rain as it falls onto your face? Doesn’t the warmth of sunlight feel great against your face? It’s a beautiful world and yes there are many things to be upset about. But at the end of day, it’s still a beautiful world, and you’re a beautiful person. Just try and find the love in everything because believe me. It’s there. "
