That is what learning is. You suddenly understand something you’ve understood all your life, but in a new way.

I don’t know any perfect people - only really really flawed people who are still worth loving.
— John Green (via onlinecounsellingcollege)
Self-loathing is not a fucking character-builder. It doesn’t make you stronger. It doesn’t make you better. It’s just an ever-deepening, creepy-ass trap; a trap that is a huge moneymaker for corporations that do not have and never will have good intentions. You’re not disgusting. You’re not freakish. You’re not ugly. And you’re never going to be perfect. And holy shit, that is so okay.
