I have a secret to tell you that can change your life, if you’ll believe it:
Nobody is normal.
If you’re in middle school or high school, or even if you’re a fully-fledged adult, and you think you’re the only one who doesn’t fit in, or measure up, or get it like everyone else does—you’re actually just like everybody else.
Nobody feels right in their own body at thirteen, or even fourteen, and sometimes fifteen, sixteen, seventeen, and beyond. You’re a butterfly breaking out of a cocoon, dear one. It’s hard, and it's painful, and it feels impossible. But that’s just—
And beautiful, in the end, if it’s accomplished as it’s intended to be.
