Sometime when I am stressed, and I am defeated by school and work I yearn for a time machine to go back and relive my high school years. Hoping for something more simple, more comfortable.
I stumbled upon some of my old thoughts and it all came back to me. My last two years of high school I was in a very rough place.
I was very hard on myself. I hated most of my life. There were times when I wanted to kill myself. There were times when I didn’t eat. There was so little that I liked about myself.
Now I’m going to use this on my especially tough days. To remember how bad it was and how far I’ve come.
Be kind. Be thoughtful
