It’s 1am so I’m sorry for the people who won’t see this. But if you want confidence and don’t know how to get it, a really good way is to be confident in other people. When you walk into Starbucks, think, “damn, that barista’s hair is da bomb!” Or when you go to school, think, “my teacher is rocking that skirt!” When you start seeing everyone as being beautiful, at some point you realize that you’re everyone too.
the entire focus of the media isn’t even on the actual crime, the suffering of the victim, or the violence she now faces
it’s on making the boys into sad, tragic victims of society who should be empathized with and pitied
this is a fucking problem
