i think the most important change in my life this past year has been learning that it’s ok to respect myself because, stupidly enough, i am worth it. I can express my feelings to the world because they’re not useless, i can work on my body to be the best version of myself because it’s ok to do so, i can do things my way because it’s not stupid, i don’t have to be like everybody else and fit in, i can and i will work on every aspect of myself until i’ll truly find who i am meant to be. i will try to accept myself knowing that there are things i can change if i want to and things i can’t change. it may sound like a cliché but trust me, it took me a lifetime to understand it, i’m still working on it. It’s never too late to be who you want to be, you just need to bet on yourself.

I like revisiting, at certain times, spots where I was once happy; I like to shape the present in the image of the irretrievable past.
