Advice For a Rainy Day
i. every time you look in the mirror
remind yourself that you no longer look the way you did
when you were fourteen, and your body
didn’t fit you.
ii. stop telling yourself that beautiful people
are out of your league; there are no rankings on
good hearts and genuine smiles.
iii. just because your favorite pair of jeans
from five years ago are tucked away in your dresser,
doesn’t mean you should keep trying to squeeze into
the memories they used to hold.
iv. if it doesn’t fit, don’t buy it.
if you don’t love it, don’t keep it.
v. if he doesn’t introduce you to his friends,
if he only calls you beautiful in bed,
if he is scared of your heart,
better things will come.
