In the future, it will be pleasing to remember these things.

I believe that kindness is magic.
I believe that honesty is always the best policy, even if that means disappointing someone you love.
I believe that you should have your heart broken, and you should break another’s heart; to understand the weight of something you cannot fix.
I believe that vulnerability is a beautiful thing.
I believe that vulnerability is a necessary thing.
I believe that vulnerability is the most important thing.
The only way to find the right kind of love is to open up your chest and let the light in.  Even if that means you let darkness in too, while lying in a pool of your own blood.
I believe that a woman should always trust her intuition.
I believe that you should always stand up for yourself, speak the truth, even if your voice shakes.
I believe in the power of words.
I believe that every word you have to say is important.
I believe that love should be electric and magnetic and it should make your heart pound and your hands tremble.  I believe that love should be recklessly, selfishly, blinding so that you will learn how to love properly, honestly, and completely.
I believe that you should kiss as many frogs as you can so you have incredible stories, but also so you truly know when you’ve found a prince.
I believe the only things you should regret are the things you were too afraid to say or do.
But above all else, I believe you should truly enjoy the company you keep in the empty moments, when everything else falls away.

As you grow older you will thicken your skin.  You will learn to reach one hand out while covering your heart with the other.  You’ll learn to hold your head high and do your best.  It’s okay to be happy, and it’s okay to be sad, and it’s okay to cry, and screaming is cool too.
