Can we please destroy the extremely toxic idea that you have to do something huge with your life — like become a multi-billionaire or internet famous or whatever —in order for it to mean something/be fulfilling? Because that’s the literally the biggest load of crap ever.
Right here, right now, you already matter. Even if you’re dead broke and struggling to make ends meet; even if no one outside your circle of friends and loved ones recognizes your name.
You know why? Because you exist. Because you see the world through your own unique set of eyes, love others in your own individual way, and create memories that only you can call your own. You have your very own sense of humor, your very own taste in music and books, ticks and annoyances.
You’re a walking universe in itself. You don’t need to be the center of anyone else’s.
