hi. you’re wonderful too. (this got really long.)
one of my least favourite things in the world is when you’re trying to work out how to get good at something or pick up a skill or learn something new to a non-shit level and all the advice is just, “there’s no magical button you can press to get there instantly! the only real way to get better is constant hard work, practice, and time!”
i hate that shit. i know it’s totally reasonable and true and makes sense on a logical and practical level, but i hate it. i want a magic button. i want everything to fall into my lap fully formed because I’M A FUCKING DELIGHT, GIVE ME EVERYTHING, I WANT IT
so, like, i don’t wanna have to give you this advice before i give you all the rest of the advice in this post, because it’s boring, but what i’m saying is: this shit takes time and it takes hard work and you’re not gonna wake up tomorrow morning feeling about yourself how kanye west feels about kanye west. sorry. there is a long haul in front of you. but considering it’s about the improved quality of the entire rest of your life, it’s worth committing to it. it’s definitely been worth it for me.
your new motto is FAKE IT TIL YOU MAKE IT, so get that shit cross-stitched and hang it above your bed bc you’re gonna need it
This woman is my friend and I am really proud of that.
Every anon who has ever asked me questions about how to be in the world and be okay and fabulous and vivid and real?
I endorse this 1000%.
