If you’re a teen you must follow this blog.

This is how it works:
One day, you’re sitting on your bedroom floor among all the debris of your life with a knife at your wrist and packets of pills and you’re drunk and crying and you don’t see any way out. Just the knife. And you wince when you see blood and realise you can’t even kill yourself properly because it hurts.

Then, the next day, you’re sitting in the park and you’re watching blossom fall. You’re watching the blossom and these kids, who are molesting a squirrel that keeps running away from them. You feel warm for the first time in months. You can’t even picture the knife. You even remember to say, “good afternoon, Mr Magpie, how’s your wife and family?”, because you know it’s meant to ward off sorrow and God knows you’ve had enough sorrow of late. You’re watching those kids, the blossom, the magpie and you’re really glad you didn’t press down, that you’re still here.

This is how it works: you’re sad until you’re not. You’re not alright until you are. And winter will stick around however long it takes for spring to arrive and make the city live again.

She’s not prettier than you
She’s not thinner than you
She’s not funnier than you
She’s not smarter than you

Even if she was,
Don’t waste your time
On a boy who thinks
You’re not perfect

You are perfect
And one day someone
Will tell you that each night
Before you fall asleep

Until then live
Live for yourself
Live for your friends
Live for your family

The right person will come along
And he won’t see any flaws
When he looks into your eyes
Just the girl of his dreams.

"Too many young girls don’t know how to act when someone’s being inappropriate with them. They giggle or they try to brush it off. Don’t do that. Tell them to go fuck themselves - be a bitch. If someone’s being disrespectful to you, be disrespectful right back. Show them the same amount of respect that they show you."
