Ok, so I just finished a book. THIS IS BIG, you guys. I am the queen of starting books and never finishing them. I have been this way since I was a wee little elementary school goer. ANYWAYS. I started Perks of Being a Wallflower, and finished 3 days later. My mind is blown, this book is so good, everyone read it.
These words were particularly amazing to me, because this is what I have been taught my whole life, but Stephen Chbosky just put it perfectly. Don't let anyone minimize your pain. ever.
