suddenly the only person you can ever imagine yourself with.

Have the courage to trust that
the beautiful butterflies of your life
will return - or not - as life intends.

We all should choose our friends carefully.
I used to think that no one could know me better than somebody else,
because you're inside yourself, your body, you can't see yourself.

which are usually judgmental people ...
we should really surround ourselves with the ones
that adore us and believe in the highest of us.
