all my friends are so pretty and smart and friendly and I try not 2 compare myself to them but it’s so Hard sometimes! i guess watching them do #cool and #positive things with their lives while i feel like im destined for failure !!


every time i feel anxious i recall zadie smith’s words in white teeth about how no one deserves love all the time, that all we deserve is food, water, and shelter. i do not think she was calling for self-abasement but asking us to make our own way for ourselves, to expect from the world as much as we work to cull from it, and to take losses in stride as an inevitable portion of life’s offerings.
