Dear you,

Please allow yourself to love what you love. Don’t weigh yourself down with shoulds or shame. Stop having guilty pleasures and just have pleasures.

Find the things that you love in this world and hold them tight. Revel in them. Listen to the music, watch the shows, make the crafts, wear the clothes, collect the things that make people scratch their heads.

This is your one precious life. Find the people who see your “guilty pleasure” and your weirdness and go “YES! I LOVE IT! Tell me all about it!”

I love you and whatever weirdness you’re ashamed of.
