'Try not to feel jealous about things, or people or places. It’s toxic. Just keep living. You will find your happiness.'
You may not be okay now, but eventually you will. Life has a way of putting you through a lot of shit that you don’t think you can handle, but you wind up overcoming anyway. That paper that’s due in a week? You’ll forget about it after you hand it in. When you’re late picking someone up? No big deal, they’ll forgive you. Life isn’t fair, but that relief you feel after the bad shit is over with is all worth it.
'There were no sex classes. No friendship classes. No classes on how to navigate a bureaucracy, build an organization, raise money, create a database, buy a house, love a child, spot a scam, talk someone out of suicide, or figure out what was important to me. Not knowing how to do these things is what messes people up in life, not whether they know algebra or can analyze literature.'
