In china, when they break a plate, or bowl, or something, instead of throwing it away, they put it back together. But how they do that is really special, see when they put it back together, they use gold. They purposely draw attention to the cracks, and fractures; and the plate, or bowl or whatever becomes more beautiful because it had been broken. I used this to prove to you darling that being broken isn’t a bad thing, all it means is that you may have had to push harder than other people to get where you are now. But believe me darling, being “broken” doesn’t mean you are less than anyone else, in fact they probably feel the exact same as you. And even if you feel like you’re below everyone, they feel like they’re below you. People notice you. People care for you. People want you to be happy. I know it may feel like the recovery might be worse than what “broke you” (if you even have a cause which it’s totally okay not to) and it very well might be. But believe me darling, it will be worth it in the end. You may feel alone now but there are so many people who would never want you to feel so bad. I know nobody can ever change whatever happened in your past, but believe me darling, we are trying everything we can to ensure you have the brightest future. Even if they don’t know it. I know that you know it to be completely true that “Being lonely doesn’t mean you’re alone. Being lonely is when you’re in a group of people and you feel as if you don’t fit in” And i am afraid that for you a many other people, this is their truth. But i want you to know that the people you hang out with, your friends, they feel like you belong. Because to them, you’re an amazing, funny, talented, person who is perfect in their own special way. And i know you’re most likely sick and tired of hearing the same old “everybody is different” and “learn to love yourself the way you are” speeches. And i guess you can categorize this one as one of those too. Just go on autopilot mode; read the first few lines only to realize it’s just the same old thing you’ve read or heard a thousand times over, just wearing a new outfit. So i’m sorry for that, if you’ve even made it this far. If you have made it this far i just want to congratulate you because i know how cheesy or horrible this might sound.
