Can you help me change my mind about winter?
Can we wear big cozy sweaters and watch movies and drink vegan hot cocoa?
Can we stare at the ceiling and listen to Mazzy Star and go for walks in the rain?
Can we have competitions to see who’s wearing more layers and send each other pictures of our terrible beanie hair?
Can you practice saying in Italian, “My, it’s cold out here. Let’s get inside!” and teach me how to agree?
When we go to Value Village in search of sweater vests, can you convince me that they are just tank tops made for winter?

if I were drunk
in a room with everyone

Things to remember:
- When no one is validating you, you can validate yourself
- When no one is comforting you, you can comfort yourself
- When no one is kind to you, you can be kind to yourself
- When no one believes you, you can believe yourself
You can give yourself the things that you are looking for externally. You are allowed to be good to yourself.
