Peace begins when expectations end. Never beg anyone for anything. Not time. Not respect. Not love. Not anything. Our job is not to sell people on loving us. Or respecting us. Or not forgetting us. It's to be loved, respected and wanted for simply existing as the spectacular human being we were born as, and to give that same kind of love, and respect back. Promise yourself this. Even if you feel abandoned, Even if you are left wandering aimlessly, Even if your sadness takes up more space than the hope in yourself, Even if you are emptier now than the sound of your own echo, You hold on. You stay by your own side. You look up to the skies. And you remember why. And you do not abandon yourself.
