“Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.”—Kurt Vonnegut
That last anon message really got to me. In a good way of course hah.
Even though I’ve been through a lot and I should be more cold and stop being “too nice,” the fact that people think I’m a lovely person makes me happy that I am the way I am.
I’ve been struggling with the fact that I always believe in the good in people, and give them the benefit of the doubt no matter what when I should be less trusting. It may be somewhat naive to believe in the good in everyone, I agree, but knowing that people have good things to say about me to other people makes me happy to stay true to myself.
Everything I’ve been through has been difficult and I’ve DEFINITELY learned a lot and now know better. But I refuse to become a cold and bitter person because of the obstacles that have been thrown at me.
I wanna be remembered and known for being a good and kindhearted person, and if that makes me naive, then so be it.
I see you all the time and we technically know each other but I don't know why my immediate reaction isn't to say hi to you so just as a heads up the next time I see you I'll wave hi and maybe have a conversation with you because I hear you're a very lovely person and it'd be cool to have more lovely people in my life. That is all.
Wow this is so sweet and made my day :’) Thanks so much!
But please don’t be shy and say hi! I love talking to people and making new friends :)
I’ve always been thankful for everyone who has been there for me and guided me through my life. But this Thanksgiving especially, I can’t stress just how blessed I am to have the most supportive mom who has become one of my best friends this year. But most of all, so thankful to have the greatest friends who have listened to me cry and rant about the same thing for weeks on end, who have set an hour or two away from their study time just to talk with me, and who have biked to my apartment from the other side of campus just to cheer me up and keep me company. I’m thankful that I now know who really has my back. I’m thankful that I got a harsh taste of how coldhearted and cruel people can be. I’m now an even stronger person than I was before.
