.6. In 8th grade your school psychologist told you that you're one of the few people who walk
in life with open arms loving and helping everyone, not because you haven't bled but
because you know you will heal and have the strength to do so. At that point you laughed at
her but now, years later you're loving, accepting and helping in spite of having both, actual
and metaphorical scars. You're kind and admitting that doesn't make you conceited.
7. Goodbyes don't always have to be dramatic. Writing an 800 words message won't make it
hurt any less than an 8 words one. Closure usually has not much to do with the ones who
wronged you but with taking your time in dealing with all the stages of grief. Some stages like
anger may take only a month but acceptance may take years and that's okay.
8. Jealousy is a basic human trait. They can be the closest to you and yet envy your happiness
and life. Envy is something you too experience and you can be happy for them and be sad for
yourself at the same time because so bitter it is to view happiness from someone else's eyes.
You aren't a horrible human being if you feel like there are better shades of green your grass
9. Read at your own desire and pace. You don't have to read particular books to qualify as a
bibliophile or read a specific number of books to be a bookworm either. Read what truly
interests you and take your time because reading was never a task, don't make it one now.
