1. She kisses me on the forehead

“Because my wife is a night owl, far more than me, I go to sleep earlier than her (on work nights). When I leave in the morning for work, I always give her a kiss on her forehead. Every day, for the past 25 years, except when I’m away on business. I do it gently and try not to wake her.

Occasionally I have some bad insomnia and struggle to sleep and won’t be all the way asleep before she comes in, so I might be in that semi-sleep haze and I just lie there. That’s when I found out that before she goes to sleep, she kisses me on the forehead.” — Evadrepus

Hater of love. Lover of horror.

Trace the scars life has left you. It will remind you that at one point, you fought for something. You believed.

“You are the only person who gets to decide if you are happy or not—do not put your happiness into the hands of other people. Do not make it contingent on their acceptance of you or their feelings for you. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if someone dislikes you or if someone doesn’t want to be with you. All that matters is that you are happy with the person you are becoming. All that matters is that you like yourself, that you are proud of what you are putting out into the world. You are in charge of your joy, of your worth. You get to be your own validation. Please don’t ever forget that.” — Bianca Sparacino
