"My whole life I've been telling myself 'don't be afraid"' And it is only now that I am realizing how stupid that is. Don't be afraid. That's like saying 'Don't move out of the way if someone tries to punch you' or 'Don't flinch at the heat of fire' or 'Don't blink' Don't be human. I'm afraid and you're afraid and we're always going to be afraid because that's the point. What I should be telling myself is 'be afraid, but do it anyways' Live anyways. You are beautiful and worthy of life, Stay strong. I love you all. I'm here if I'm ever needed.
