the advice no one asked for:

So, I’ve been thinking a lot.
I know a lot of people in my life
who seem… well, lost. To say
the least. Sometimes they complain,
other times I just see the sadness in
their eyes. I just want to shake them
really hard and be all like “BE HAPPY,
DO IT FOR ME. IF NOT FOR ME, YOUR
MOM. NO SERIOUSLY, SHE’S A LOVELY
LADY AND JUST WANTS TO SEE YOU
HAPPY AND SO DO I” or some variation
of that. And I’m pretty good at giving
advice, but no one asked for it. So here
it is anyways: Everyone wants to be loved.
Everyone should be loved. But you have
to love yourself first. And it’s really hard.
You’re probably thinking: “yeah, I do,”
but I don’t believe you. Look deeper.
You can’t just be like “yeah, I’m not fat
and I don’t smell bad, so sure I love
myself.” No, you have no love every
part. Even the shitty ones, like your
ticks and idiosyncrasies. After that,
put yourself out there. Don’t hide or
put up a wall. If you pretend to be
quiet and normal, you’re probably
going to attract someone like that
so let your weird out because weird
people go together nicely. Seriously,
everyone’s lonely. It’s up to you to give
yourself a reason to get out of bed in the
morning. Work sucks, I know isn’t just a
good lyric. Start with appreciating then
just enjoy the little things, even that sucky
job. Try your best at everything. Make
deep connections and just look around.
When it counts, the people that care about
you will step up to the plate. There’s people
who would put you before themselves if it
came down to it, more than you think.
The world isn’t as big as we think it is.
Fate, destiny, faith; it’s all real. Use
positive thinking to make what you
want reality. And damn it all if this
didn’t motivate you enough, come to
my room and I’ll slap some sense into you.

So, in conclusion: so… so so so… so,
and like so some more. I don’t know,
it’s just a good word. It’s like and or
‘in addition to’ but much better.
I like it! I know no one’s going to
read this or take it to heart but
I felt the need to tell something
that things are going to be better.
Everything gets better with time.
Except for the environment.
That’s kind of going down the shitter.
We should fix that cause if we don’t,
that’s gonna be the only thing that
matters. So, I guess the real advice
is recycle or else breathing will
be everyone’s biggest problem.
