12 ways for snowflakes to feel safe when upset.
For those times when you are feeling down and out because someone bailed on you and you think it’s because they don’t value spending time with you. Or, maybe you got fired from a job or were broken up with and you are doubting your own ability and self as a person. Maybe you got into a fight with your parents or significant other and you’re mad as hell or think life is unfair. Whatever the case, a deep breath and these words can help for a moment to calm yourself and offer a different perspective.
Sure they may not solve all of your problems, but no set of words can on their own. Maybe more conversations and reflection will be needed, but these can be that starting point to that journey. So yes, read this post now but save it for another time when you might need it even more than you do now. Perspective is important and when you are able to see the big picture as to why things are happening to you, the door opens for learning, growth and ultimately change.
You will always mean the world to someone.
Your smile can make someone who doesn't even like you happy.
Every night, someone thinks about you before they fall asleep.
If someone seems to hate you, very often it’s only because they want to be like you.
On average, at least a dozen people out there love you in their own way.
Life’s too short to wake up every morning with regrets.
Therefore love the people who treat you right, forget about those who don’t, and remember that everything happens for a reason.
Even when you make the biggest ‘mistake’ of your life, something good will come out of it. It’s how the universe works.
When you feel that the world has turned against you, try to look at it from a different perspective, and you’ll understand it’s just not the case.
Always remember: when life offers you ‘another chance,’ pay attention to what you learned last time, and apply it now!
If a new opportunity appears, take it. And if your whole life changes because of this, let it happen.
No one said life was going to be easy. But we promise you, it’s worth it and you can grow a sh*t ton!

The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.
We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom. We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often. We've learned how to make a living, but not a life. We've added years to life not life to years. We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space.
We've done larger things, but not better things. We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We've learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.
These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete...
Remember; spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever. Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side. Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent. Remember, to say, 'I love you' to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you. Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again.
Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.
AND ALWAYS REMEMBER:
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away. If you don't share this with anyone....Who cares?
There will always be a cheap producer to hire you on one of his piss poor porn movies sets so that the world can admire your tattoos and piercings and shit while you simulate frantic joy of being penetrated by passersby. What's more the producer would certainly not abuse you like Weinstein. Especially not after your 15 minutes of fame.
There's always room for snowflake therapy, one day one of them will be president.
What is this? Snowflake therapy?
