Your value is not based on what other people think of you.
I thought I knew what heartache felt like, but this was something new. Maybe the greatest tragedy of my life would be that I wasn’t loved by you.
Every day on the news, we are bombarded with stories of mass shootings, disease, war, and other instances of death. As much as we try to ignore it, death is very much present in our lives.
I had trouble connecting with people in my youth, but as an adult, I find it much easier. When I moved abroad, it was nice to have actual friends and had been something that I cherish deeply.
I realized that I had felt safe there. Safer than I had ever felt in my entire life.
My parents prepared me for life in many ways. One is learning how to be independent. I feel like I am completely self-sufficient now. I live alone, so every aspect of my life rests on my own shoulders.
I never knew that bisexuality was an option. Things always seemed so black and white.
I can’t help but wonder if there’s something wrong with me? What could be so wrong with me that no one has ever needed to be with me

I get a lot of questions about how I teach myself languages, so I decided to make a master post to help our polyglots and linguists in training.
