how to stay out of the depressive hole:
- get out of bed
- brush and floss your teeth
- repeat everyday without becoming so exhausted you want to crumble to pieces
If you ever feel embarrassed, remember:
You are smaller than a supernova,
Quieter than a black hole,
And less radiant than a flicker in a white dwarf’s eye.
That is why it is okay to say to someone
I love you, do you love me too?
Because a million things already do not love you,
And none of that matters.
So, if the answer is no,
Instead of collapsing in pain,
Pile it on the heap of things that you love
That do not love you back:
Every beautiful landscape you have ever seen,
All your material possessions,
Including the phone beside you
Your favorite book, movie, and actor,
The food you are digesting.
If the answer is yes,
Tell this person now.
Do not hesitate and think we can save this for later,
After the smoke from the volcano leaves,
After you are old enough to know better,
After you lose twenty pounds.
You will forget why you didn’t,
And the collapse will be unavoidable,
It will feel as big as the sky.
things that you realize when studying in the most beautiful city in the world:
- it is cheaper to subsist on beer than to eat real food
- sleep is over-rated, time is limited
- no matter how far away you move, you can’t move away from yourself
This just made me so freaking happy
This is the line that has gotten me through life.
I live by this
