1) A boy telling you you鈥檙e pretty won鈥檛 make you see the beauty in the fullness of your cheeks, in redness of your lips at 2 in the morning when tequila is making the bar bathroom spin. He can鈥檛 take away the ugliness that you see in yourself, you have to do that.

2) You have to be ready to hear someone say they love you. You have to be ready, and you have to be willing, and you have to listen. Because sometimes, they won鈥檛 say those three words, they鈥檒l put a blanket over you while you鈥檙e watching a movie, they鈥檒l kiss your cheek when they think you鈥檙e asleep, they鈥檒l smile when they see you first thing in the morning. But you, you have to be willing to see it, feel it, let it in. Letting someone love you takes practice.

3) Don鈥檛 make compromises you can鈥檛 live with. Compromise is a different version of what you want, not a whole other Universe.

4) Learn to say no. No - to a movie you don鈥檛 want to watch; no - to sex you don鈥檛 want to have, no- to a relationship that鈥檚 driving you mad. Say no - to things that hurt you, to people that extinguish your fire, to jobs you hate and places that are desolate. There are bad things that we can鈥檛 control, bad things that happen and we are sucked into and have to feel with every fibre of our being, but the rest - learn to distance yourself, learn to say no.

5) Don鈥檛 expect people to walk through fire for you - not your parents, not your friends, not the person you鈥檙e in love with. Love doesn鈥檛 mean sacrifice, love shouldn鈥檛 mean sacrifice. Don鈥檛 expect someone to give away pieces of them, so they could fit you better. And don鈥檛 feel hurt when they refuse to - it鈥檚 self-preservation. Instead - learn from them. Do it as well.

6) Don鈥檛 tether yourself to people. Learn to make connections, to love, with both your feet steady on the ground. Learn to let people pass through your life; like a summer breeze, not a storm that鈥檚 just been unleashed.

7) Learn the difference between growth and growing up before it鈥檚 too late. Rooftops and water fights and ice cream for breakfast can be a part of your life at 10, 25, or 35. But by the time you鈥檙e 35 you need to learn to say enough, to be able to walk away, you need to be able to love yourself. Love yourself the way you loved yourself at 10, before the world had a chance to fill your head with ugliness.
