Cheers to the good times.

1. Don’t sleep with that boy. He will never speak to you again. He’s not interested in what you have to say or what you like to read, he wants your body. He will make you feel worse.
2. Don’t pour your heart out to a friend you think cares. If they seem too good to be true, then they probably don’t.
3.Stay away from toxic websites. You don’t need facebook.
4. Don’t try to kill yourself.
5. Save your money. Save for when you are 18 and you have your license and you can finally get away. You won’t get far with $50.
6. People love you. It may just not be who you expect.
7. There are days when you think you miss the sadness. You don’t. As soon as it comes back, you remember why you wanted it to go. Let it stay away.
8. Don’t try to kill yourself.
9. It may seem like a worthwhile investment to not eat. It’s not. It will kill you. It will tear you apart.
10. Don’t tear yourself apart.
11. Don’t let anyone else tear you apart.
12. He loves you, don’t let him go.
13. Don’t try to kill yourself.
14. When it gets hard, keep going. There are people who say that they will be there for you at all hours, but will not pick up your phone call at 6pm. But there are also people who never utter a word to you, but would drive to you at 3am to stop you taking those pills. I’m sorry that I was not either of them.
15. Don’t try to kill yourself
16. I’m proud of you.

Destroy the idea that men should respect women because we are their daughters, mothers, and sisters. Reinforce the idea that men should respect women because we are people.

1) You are allowed to take up space. You are a human.

2) You are allowed to have a voice.

3) You are allowed to leave whenever you feel unsafe or uncomfortable.

4) You deserve more than someone who doesn’t know how to respect you.

5) You are allowed to put your own needs first.

6) You are allowed to love yourself.

Getting drunk was good. I decided that I would always like getting drunk. It took away the obvious and maybe if you could get away from the obvious often enough, you wouldn’t become obvious yourself.
