If you are anything like me, you believe in love over logic.

If you are anything like me, your heart bleeds with the hurting and it sucks, but you are forever grateful you didn't take the blue pill.

If you are anything like me, you are fiery AF when it comes to speaking out against oppression and it often makes people uncomfortable.

If you are anything like me, you don’t care what people think of you.

But if you are anything like me, the anxiety that fills your chest with cold unoxygenated air cares way too much about what people think of you.

If you are anything like me, optimism about love winning sometimes turns into a doubt that you are ashamed of.

If you are anything like me, you want to love everyone all of the time, but you can’t help but borderline hate the religious elite who use a White-Jesus to oppress and hurt others.

If you are anything like me, you can be bold AF while inwardly having a massive anxiety attack.

If you are anything like me, you believe deeply that everyone has the capability to change the world yet you doubt if what you are doing will mean anything in the end.

If you are anything like me, you are still trying to figure this shit out.

If you are anything like me, you will never have this shit figured out.

If you are anything like me, you would rather give everything up to try to love others first even when the world tells you that you are being dumb.

If you are anything like me, you wonder fairly often if you are indeed being dumb.

If you are anything like me, you know you can never go back to the bliss of ignorance.

If you are anything like me, you are a fucking mess.

But if you are anything like me, you know deep down, it doesn’t matter.

None of it matters because you are who is going to change the world.

This is what you were made for.

You are the resistance that refuses to fall into the neat tidy box of a nice little almond-latte-drinking, apathetic human.

You are a warrior.

You are a truth seeker.

Your messy soul is filled with a unique strength in a world of egocentric weakness.

Your doubt is okay.

But the voice that tells you that you are not enough is not, it’s a lie.

You are right where you are supposed to be.

You are fucking bad ass, and it is because of everything that you are and everything that you are not, that love is going to win in this mess of a world.
