"You are allowed to be alive. You are allowed to be somebody different. You are allowed to not say goodbye to anybody or explain a single thing to anyone, ever."
Augusten Burroughs (via endangerment)
I feel like I’ve lost my sense of place and it’s really uncomfortable
I want to love myself, I’m surprised at how hard this actually is to do.
I want my worth not to be determined by my size, shape, how many chins I have.
I want to be able to eat my lunch with everyone else and not feel I am under constant scrutiny about what I eat or look like while I’m eating.
I want to be able to look back at people when they look me directly in the eyes, not hang my head in shame or discomfort.
I want to be comfortable in my body, my home.
I want to stop comparing my life to others.
I want to be at peace with myself.
I want to respect myself.
I want to love every part of me.
the world is heavy
but your bones
(just a cubic inch)
can hold 19,000 lbs
ounce for ounce
they are stronger than steel
atom for atom
you are more precious than diamond
and stars have died
so that you may live
you need to remember these things
when you say that you are weak
