You are exactly as much as you need to be right now.
Make mistakes and poor judgment calls. Sometimes you're just going to have to stumble along until you get there. You will always be a student. This is the school of Life- you never stop learning.
You are nobodies consolation prize. And you should never settle to be the second or third or fifth choice.
Know your worth. Know your worth. Know your worth.
Say the thing you've needed to say. The one that is always simmering just below the surface. The one that scares you, leaves you exposed and vulnerable and raw. Say it despite how it will be received or whether it will be reciprocated. Chances are, they already know. Speak your truth.
Stop reaching so far. If they valued you enough, they would meet you halfway.
The 'What if' game is a dangerous one. Proceed with caution and understand that it almost never leads to anything tangible.
Do not be afraid to call bullshit.
There will be defining moments that require you to forge ahead or walk away. Many will continue to forge ahead, because it feels like the safer option. Don't be afraid to walk away.
When you're feeling less than, don't wallow in it. Get up, get dressed, keep moving.
Just. keep. moving.
