Your friends may be great people and support you, but aren't yourself, without a doubt your best ally?
Look, everything you've done and everything you've though... is there anyone else but you who knows that?
The ugly side of yourself that you never show.
Excuses and secrets...you can't betray yourself.
If your friends were down and blaming themselves, what would you do?
I'd... cheer them on?
So then, just like you would cheer on a friend, don't you think it would be good, even if it's just inside your heart, to be kind to yourself?
Since you're the only one who fully understands yourself, can't you tell yourself the words you most want to hear?
