Matter of Taste Coffee Bar - Kitchener, Ontario
"You are much more than you realize you are."
"You deserve good things."
"Don't let others dictate who you are."
"Share your wounds not so that others can heal them - because they can't - but in order to help others."
"Don't take yourself, or life, too seriously."
"Don't put up with too much of others' bullshit. It is theirs to deal with and not yours."
"Be gentle with yourself."
"Find out what you're good at and do it."
"Don't let yourself get overwhelmed with the constant e-noise that is out there to be distracted by."
"You don't have to be a rock. It's ok to need, to a point. Form a few friendships with people who can hold you and build you up."
"Express your anger and sadness, and if certain people are offended, they probably don't know you enough to know where it's coming from and it doesn't matter anyway." In other words, say damn, fuck, and shit on a healthy basis, because it's gonna come out somehow anyway."
"You may just have to give up your idea of sainthood. Try beer and wings instead."
