2. "I have a million things to talk to you about. A million things we have to talk about. All I want in this world is you. I want to see you and talk. I want the two of us to begin everything from the beginning."
    — Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood (via wordsnquotes)

  3. "

    Here is the unmitigated truth:

    I fell in love with you the day that we met. Ten months later you shattered my whole heart and maybe even some of your own. I hope that somewhere in between you loved me too. On bad nights I know that you didn’t. On better nights I know that I’m wrong. There is enough I will never understand to keep me in love with you for centuries.

    Here is the ugly truth:

    I didn’t even get to love you for a year.

    Now I am wearing my broken heart like the first time I got my period in public. I am frantically redecorating my house so that the shadows will remember whose name is on the lease. I am frantically reclaiming my body. I want to remember what is mine without lying about what is still yours. I know I said you couldn’t come back, but there is still a place for you between my lungs and my stomach. My reflection still reminds me of you. I don’t know how to make any of it stop.

    How to make your very own I Don’t Suck file:

    It can be general or specific—A lot of my clients make general files with notes from loved ones or former students/clients/bosses of theirs or other supports. Or magazine clippings that remind them of goals or qualities they have. I am currently making one that is therapy related as a way to transition from my most recent job and prepare for my move abroad. It has notes from clients, supervisees and evaluations.

    What you need: It can be as low maintenance as a file folder stuffed with notes or as high maintenance as a well-crafted scrapbook. What’s important is that you have a place to go when you need a pick-me-up.

    You can gather things to build it—don’t have what you’re looking for? Start gathering!

    • If you have a friend or family member you trust to be supportive of you, see if they’d be willing to write you a note about what they like about you.
    • Next time you’re looking at a magazine or reading a blog and see something that resonates with you—save it for your file. Truth resonates, and you can’t recognize something that you don’t have, so if there is something you read or see that you admire and relate to, there’s something of you that’s in it.
    • Write yourself some affirmations when you’re feeling good—make your own or use song lyrics or quotes.

    I feel like I definitely need one of these…

    This is an excellent idea for coping with dysphoria as well. Surround yourself with affirmations. Remind yourself that you are amazing and worthy of love.
