“You don’t need anyone’s affection or approval in order to be good enough. When someone rejects or abandons or judges you, it isn’t actually about you. It’s about them and their own insecurities, limitations, and needs, and you don’t have to internalize that. Your worth isn’t contingent upon other people’s acceptance of you — it’s something inherent.
You exist, and therefore, you matter. You’re allowed to voice your thoughts and feelings. You’re allowed to assert your needs and take up space. You’re allowed to hold onto the truth that who you are is exactly enough. And you’re allowed to remove anyone from your life who makes you feel otherwise.
I've come to appreciate life's imperfections. The world's perfectly imperfect nature is astoundingly the only thing that makes life interesting. A world without imperfections is only a dream... but then again even dreams have their flaws.
I think that the only depressing part about our imminent death is the fact that we will most likely never get to learn the answers to our deepest inquires. Will robots take over the world? Is global warming actually real? Are humans the only living creatures among the stars? Can we survive on another planet? These are the things I think about.
