"you shouldn’t be depressed, people have it worse than you"
finally, after years of searching, the person with the worst life ever is found. formally, they are granted permission to be sad. but only them. only they have earned it. no sads for anyone else at all ever
i think its so interesting that in dreams my perception of a person is less explicitly visual and more so an expression of the aura they project or the emotions we associate with them. i’m not sure if it is like this for everyone, but i can’t necessarily remember faces in my dreams. instead, there are masses colors blurred together that i associate with that emotion or that person.
I have no place in this life
So you can’t tell me
I am important, worthy, and beautiful.
I know what I am:
I am ugly, useless, and broken.
I used to believe that
A God exists who loves me.
But now I have realized that
I deserve to die.
But grace turns it all around.

When you feel you have lost everything, you still have
- unexpected kindness in strangers
- the rest of the world to travel
- languages to learn
- animals to take care of
- volunteer work to do
- the power of a good night’s rest
- the changing of seasons
- infinite things to learn
- billions of people to meet and possibly love
- billions of people who might love you back
