"Why you are not and will never be worthless"
You have knowledge inside of you that I can’t even dream of. You’ve seen things I’ll never see. What you have, it’s valuable. There are things- and be honest: you know what things – that make you different. That have made you the person you are today. Maybe it’s not what most schools are looking for. But that’s okay. It doesn’t mean it’s useless. No, it’s worth a hell of a lot.

You’re a treasure box.
There are crowns born from of pain and necklaces made out of loss, there are gowns sewn with joy and gold coined with stories. Every idea you ever had is a pearl. Every emotion a diamond.
Only you can bring this to the table.
And this is the case with every human being you see. That’s what’s so beautiful about it.
We’re all different and it makes us invincible – if I don’t know the answer and you don’t know the answer, the odds are high that one of the other 7 billion people or so will. Someone always does.
Everyone has this richer inner world inside of them and even though we’re fundamentally similar, and we somehow find ways to compare our worlds and communicate, there will always be corners and alleys and rivers and forests inside your head that nobody else has.
Don’t look down on other people. Don’t look down on yourself.
You have knowledge inside of you that I can’t even dream of.
Don’t ever forget that.
What is love?
The ability to spend time with someone or something and enjoy the hell out of it - even if you’re in a bit of a rocky patch right now. You know it gets better.
And that’s the secret: Spend time with it. Get intimate with it. Let it become your second nature. Put it to bed and wake it with orange juice. It’s impossible to be bad at something that you adore so deeply and spend so much time with. You will evolve together.
And this will happen with everything you spend time with - watching a certain series, reading certain books, lying on the floor, listening to music, calculus, growing strawberries, jogging, meta-analyzing, solving riddles, cooking soup, understanding theories, building light-bulbs, anything.
No matter what you do, as long as you love it, you are constantly driven to excel at it. And the more time you spend with it, the higher are the odds that it’ll actually happen.
Quality time. It matters.
