Love thyself first,
The carrot comes later...

To my friend with a deflated ego

Sorry to disturb you

But you're beautiful

Permit me to tell you everyday

Know thyself!

Do not depend on the acceptance of others to make you feel good

Focus on your similarities with others

Control comparing yourself to others

To my aromantic friend

Just because others want to be in relationships

Or at least act like they do

Doesn't mean you have to

Maybe you don't have the same kinds of sexual desires

Maybe you're not ready

Maybe you haven't met anyone who excites you

Maybe you're gay

Maybe you're not someone who's really geared towards romantic relationships

But do not compare yourself to anyone

Doing things that interest you will make you much happier

And more confident in who you are

Maybe along the way, you'll meet someone

Or maybe you'll find that you are in fact aromantic or asexual

Any of this is okay

It's more than okay

It's who you are.

To my heartbroken friend

Get your heart broken many times

And never regret it

It's something that will add up to the recipe of you being strong

Someday someone is gonna love you the way you deserve to be

You will totally forget that person

You will not even miss them

Learn from your previous relationships

Learn from your mistakes

Try to become a better version of yourself

You will meet that star that was once hidden in you

It will definitely take sometime for your heart to heel

But you are strong

You will no longer be broken

I believe in you

And you should too!
