You are not a burden.
You are not a bother.
You enhance the lives of others.
People smile, not groan, when you text them.
So what? You failed your finals. You gained some weight. So what? You’re single again. You lost your job. So what? What now? You live. You try again. That’s what.
So what? You tore the paper. Some herb spilled out. So what? There’s a twig poking through. It’s too tight and won’t hit. So what? What now? You roll. You try again. That’s what.
When you start seeing your worth, you’ll find it harder to stay around people who don’t.
