“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”—John Lennon (via ireadintothings)
It transfers energy and gives the person hugged an emotional lift. You need four hugs a day for survival, eight for maintenance, and twelve for growth. Scientists say that hugging is a form of communication because it can say things you don’t have words for. And the nicest thing about a hug is that you usually can’t give one without getting one.
You’re a teenager. You are far from perfect, yet beautiful. You’re going to fuck up. You’re going to change. You’re going to lose friends. You’re going to gain friends. You’re going to keep friends. You’re going to learn who your true friends are. You’re gonna feel heartbroken. You’re gonna feel dead. Then there are the times you feel so alive. You are absolutely beautiful through all of this. And even though being a teenager is seriously the biggest thing we all have to overcome, we can make it through these years with a smile. Just promise me you’ll try. Because you’re beautiful. And believe it or not, you are worth something. You‘re worth the fucking world.
