gowns:

you all need to stop settling

stop putting yourself in the presence of people who make you feel confused or less-than

don’t try to salvage a friendship if they make you feel like shit

don’t try to get into the brain of someone who’s closing themselves off to you

don’t try to start a relationship with someone who’s lukewarm

tell yourself “i deserve better” — because you do. it’s a hard thing to practice, but do it every day. every thing you do, throughout the day, tell yourself “i deserve this.” you deserve good things.

it’s hard to unlearn settling, but trust me, high standards will save you every time
