"How do you expect me to learn if I don't make a few mistakes along the way?"
"You're an amazing person who has lived several lives, traveled to millions of places, met so many different people, battled Dragons, and practiced Witchcraft!"
"Yes, there are days when it's a little too much for me to take in, but otherwise, I'm getting through the days just as normally as I would have- one day at a time."
"You have walked beside me through the light and the dark days and I don't think I have told you how much I value that."
"You might be called a nerd, for being so silent and taking down all the notes to escape people. But what they don't know is how wonderful a person you can be. You just need to get out there, break through your shell."
"Remember that you're a unique masterpiece in yourself, and you do not have to pretend to be somebody else. Love yourself, be confident of the amazing person I'm sure you're going to turn out to be. I won't force you into anything that you don't want to follow; you're free to follow your own dreams and live your life according to your own set of rules."
"You're tough to the world outside, you don't let anybody in, you have an aura of strength about you. But you also wish to lie down on the couch, watch rom-coms and eat ice-cream, with a box of tissues on your side; and no one knows about this part of you because you're usually the most independent person they've ever come across."
