Date someone who is interested in you. I don’t mean someone who thinks you’re cute or funny. I mean someone who wants to know every insignificant detail about you. Someone who wants to read every word you write. Someone who wants hear every note of your favourite song, and watch every scene of your favourite movie. Someone wants to find every scar upon your body, and learn where each one came from. Someone who wants to know your favourite brand of toothpaste, and which quotes resonate deep inside your bones when you hear them. There is a difference between attraction and interest. Find the person who wants to learn every aspect of who you are, and hold onto them.
If you ever feel like you can’t 100% be yourself with someone, you shouldn’t be with them. You shouldn’t have to question everything you say before you say it. You shouldn’t be in fear that every stupid little thing you say is going to cause a fight, and you shouldn’t have to hold back your feelings. Pretending to be someone else gets exhausting.

stay away from people who make you feel like you are hard to love
I’m legitimately very happy with my life right now, and I’m proud of myself for that. I didn’t realize how long it had been since I’ve been truly happy or how unhappy I really was. It feels good to have no stress in my life. I feel like I’m really acting like myself again.
