Reality Check #62
You never need to be so hard on yourself that you find no encouragement in the criticism. There’s always something to learn, some knowledge to glean, and room to laugh at yourself. Keep your mind and heart open and who knows what more you can accomplish. After all, mindset is more than half the battle! And who knows. If you give yourself room for discovery, you might just learn something...
I don't think it's wrong
to believe in good people.
I don't understand
why you can’t just think of what the nice thing to say is. Why you can’t just want to make me feel better. I do what I can, but sometimes I just need someone to listen.
Listen. It’s a much better use of your time.
I’m sorry. I’m so sorry for thinking that there was any force capable of threatening what we’ve worked so hard to strengthen. For thinking that the work can’t possibly be over. For being willing to keep up with it.
I'm not gonna lie.
I wouldn’t mind falling asleep in your arms every once in awhile.
I don't have time for your faux
whatever it is.
My biggest fear is that you’ll wake up tomorrow with a little less love in your heart.
Reality Check #73
You are no better than all of the people that you hate so much about. The stakes are different as the circumstances. You can’t just live your life in a state of condescension. It’s just simply not an option because from there, you get nowhere. Open your mind. Open your heart. Grow a pair.
I’m terrified that you’ll figure out all of the reasons that no relationship has worked out.
Oh, the things that change with time...
is that you have incredible expectations that I can’t possibly fulfill.
hate the way I make myself feel like it’s not okay to just be happy with the way things are.
The Way I See It #86
They told you that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. What they failed to tell you is that it is best seen with the eyes closed. What you look like isn’t important. What is important is who you are inside and the choices you are making in your life.
If you'll only open your eyes;
something beautiful is happening.
It's funny how
one comment can change my mentality on a dime. And because your opinion matters, you hold all the power. Please don’t abuse it.
The Way I See It #3
Say the things you mean. You may be surprised by people’s reactions to the truth.
Boy: What are you going to eat?
Girl: Pizza's all they have right now. So I'll settle for it...and french fries... I'm gonna get fat again...
Boy: I'm gonna get fat too.
Girl: No you're not! That's physically impossible for you! Why would you try?
Boy: If you are, I will.
has never been so reassuring as when I set foot into that room and saw the disapproval sneaking into that space right behind your eyes. I’m not gonna lie. I liked, if only for a moment, seeing the truth for myself.
use the word ‘I’ too much.
have that off the wall won’t stop till I get enough kind of love. I need that love.
I am enamored
by the ‘us’ I have become a part of.
I miss this.
Talking and being understood the first time around. Sharing opinions and sarcasm. Feeling less crazy than usual. Knowing I’ve already been accepted, speaking my mind with no judgment to follow. Please make time for this soon.
Post- Cast List Tumble.
I’m so lucky to be part of such a talented program and SUCH a talented cast this semester. the best part is knowing that I have the opportunity to be validated for the work I’ve done and to step it up even further and show everyone what I can do. Not to mention work with some of the nicest, most talented people. I. Am. So. Grateful.
Get off of your computer and get some fresh air. It’ll do you some good.
I feel so stupid.
I don’t want to be that girl that’s complaining all about missing her boyfriend, because the realistic half of me won’t stop saying, “Brittnie. Shut up. People do this all the time. There’s no need to complain about it. Plus. No one really cares all that much. Please. It’s audition week.” And it always sounds weird hearing myself say that I am madly in...
