Be a Tapestry, Not a Carpet.

The weather is slowly being less of a ratchet mess. My life has basically consisted of reading, homework and Gilmore Girls. I live a very exciting life. Oh and Psych is now back on TV and I am dying. This is a beautiful day. I also found out that I understand more French than I thought. That is just fantastic news. For me. Not you. I mean it can be good news for you if you want it to be. I don’t know. 

Today I wanted to talk about a pressing issue. Well it’s not really pressing and it’s not really an issue. It’s just a topic. The topic is relationships. I want to do spend a little bit of time talking to you guys about what relationships, not just lovey dovey relationships but like friendships and stuff like that. I think self-respect should be a very big part of any kind of relationship. You need to be able to love yourself before you love someone else. I heard this everywhere and I was so confused as to what it meant. Why do I have to love myself to love others? I love others just fine without loving myself. I have discovered that that saying means that if you love yourself you know exactly what you deserve so you get into relationships with people who love you that way you deserve to be loved because you love yourself enough to walk out of relationships that suck and walk into relationships that rock. I don’t know if you already knew this but this was a huge revolutionary discovery for me. 

I’m going to say something to you. Yeah you. I see you with the face. Be a tapestry, not a carpet. Yup. That’s a piece of my wisdom. Be a tapestry, not a carpet. Don’t let anyone walk all over you, spill random crap all over you, stain you and eventually they will throw you out and not even has a second thought about it. You deserve to be admired, taken care of and treated like one of a kind. So be a tapestry, not a carpet. Love yourself because you deserve it. I mean think about it, you go through so much. Life is complicated and a bitch at times. You have all these things to do and all this weight to carry. You have scars and wounds. You have gone through so much. You deserve someone who will treat you like you’re the freaking Queen of England. You deserve to be someone’s only one not their just another one. Don’t you dare let them treat you like your a no brand product on sale. You are the most special of the special editions. You deserve respect. YOU DESERVE MORE. You are a fabulous human being and as a fabulous human being you need to be in fabulous relationships. I am so tired of people treating each other like crap. What the hell, people? WHY? WHYYYY? I don’t understand. If someone doesn’t have the balls to commit to you, you need to Beyonce strut your sexy ass out of their lives. If you don’t feel appreciated, you need to stop stressing over how unappreciated you are and just concentrate in the relationships you do feel appreciated in. Never forget that you’re great. Never let anyone tell you that you are less of great. Never let anyone make you feel like you are nothing. Gosh you are so great. 

A saying I lived by my entire life is “Treat others the way you want to be treated.” There’s a bible verse somewhere that says that but I haven’t memorized the bible so I don’t know where. Look it up. Google it or something. Be good to others and others will be good to you. If they aren’t, then you need to wave goodbye. I have learned that every human being is so special and so beautiful. We are so constrained into this box of what we are “supposed” to be. We aren’t supposed to be anything. We aren’t meant to look a certain way to be beautiful. We don’t have to act a certain way to be accepted. You don’t have to mold yourself to other people’s standards. Why would you do that? You are your own person. There is literally only one of you in this entire world and you’re going to change yourself to be someone else? WHO IS GOING TO BE YOU? I ain’t going to be you, I’m too busy trying to be me. Get it together. Seriously. Start loving yourself before you love anyone else. Start having respect for who you are and understand that you deserve beautiful things. Life is hard enough with things that are beyond our control. We can control learning to love ourselves. We can choose to love ourselves even if we can’t control who we fall in love with. So choose to love yourself. Make life a little bit easier for you. You’re so great. I seriously can’t get over how great you are. 

Stay beautiful, you guys.

OMG AGAIN PSYCH. It’s beautiful. Watch it. Now. It’s on Netflix. Go. SERIOUSLY.
