You should go to the prom.
Take a step, however awkward it might seem.
Take a small step, a smile, a simple word.
You will not become a laughingstock of the whole class.
You are not the center of the universe.
Everyone around you feels as exposed as you do.
Stop looking for excuses and repeating to yourself, ‘It’s too good to be true. He won’t like me. I’m just imagining it.’
He does like you – he cannot be more plain about it!
Do not be afraid. Fear is a bad counselor.
Good things can happen to you.
There’s a prince on a white horse waiting by your front door. Hop on!
You’ll always wonder if you don’t try it now.
Try to get what you want.
What do you want?
Don’t settle for what might be, what could be.
