When in fact it’s fascinating to look at someone and just fall… no hesitations, no expectations. Just fall in love freely.
People are so quick to judge this generation for impersonal texting conversations or a missed call because a phone died. (Is in a ditch somewhere? He must be in a ditch if he isn’t answering his phone.)
I think dignity comes from being authentic. We need to be vocal about our expectations. We need to make sure people are on the same page with our expectations for how we hope to be treated.
Sometimes it’s not about what we want at all; sometimes we fall for people who we had no intentions of falling for and out of that the most beautiful, real love is born.
Never allow those who are jaded to try and jade you. Keep your head high and your expectations even higher.
How to cut tomatoes.
I used to take being underestimated as an insult. Until I saw it for what it was. Just a clear reflection of my own behavior.
You are expected to do all of those things that mostly contradict each other, to be walking down on many different paths at once, while they are all leading in different directions and they are only rarely crossing each other.
We are far too often oblivious to our own beauty, both inner and outer. You see, we don’t see the grace or power that we emanate as we walk through this complicated world.
This moment taught me to fall in love with the person I actually was, not some persona that I tried and failed to be.
