You are a real human person

You are not a machine. You cannot weigh the same every day. You cannot feel the same every day. You cannot be the same every day. This is not because there is something wrong with you. It just is not possible. Really. Being human is not a personal failing. 💛 In case you need reminding. 💛⁣
