staging a protest against fall this week by not wearing anything that’s actually suitable for fall
You are loved. You are important. You are irreplaceable. You are not alone. You will be okay. Someone cares about you. I care about you, I believe in you, I love you, and I am here for you.

There is always hope! Don’t give up.
yea boo of course, you did what you felt was best for you and that’s what’s important !!
this isn’t just limited to sex… if you don’t feel comfortable pursuing any kind of relationship/friendship with someone bc they don’t stand on the same page as you about something you deem important… then you have every right to walk away with no regrets
hey buddy, i’m so sorry you’re feeling that way. but i can tell you for a fact that you’re not alone. honestly amongst my group of friends (the early 20’s gang), most of us haven’t found our “soulmate” yet. and in a world where there’s so much of pressure to be in a relationship, whether it’s from the media or from your family or from your peers, it can be really frustrating to be single. there’s so many feelings that come with it - shame, confusion, sadness etc.
it’s weird looking around you and seeing people you knew in high school who’re in long term relationships, and people in university who are getting engaged and married and having KIDS. and you’re just sitting there like. well. i haven’t even felt the thrill of a romance in SO LONG what am i doing?!!!!
it’s normal. and your feelings are valid. but feelings are not facts, and you can get over them.
i know it’s hard to do, but you have to let go of this feeling that you’re supposed to find your “soulmate” in your early 20s. there’s no specific timeline for this. there’s no expiration date. you can’t force yourself to meet someone you like, or find someone who can be your life partner.
it just doesn’t work like that.
take time to focus on yourself. you are in your PRIME. you have so much youthful energy and courage. go out and do things you want to do. whatever it is. whether it’s to study more, or to have a cool job, or to save up so you can travel etc.
let love find you. let love find you when you’re THRIVING. when you’re excited and happy and willing to learn, willing to try new things.
moping and feeling bad about yourself accomplishes nothing. it’s not your fault that you’re sitting here without a partner yet.
be kind to yourself, baby. and have patience. everything takes time. xxx
