Thank you for still being there for me, even after all these years of being apart. Life took us all in different directions, yet we still all wound up together back where it all began.
“I wake early these days, and often I lug my equipment to different parks in Queens and spin around in the woods in a blue dress and remember what it was like to be 17 and stringing up paper stars in my basement.”
I’m scared of losing all the progress I’ve made by leaving here, including the self-love and acceptance I’ve found on my own out in the world.
To live is to suffer, to survive is to find some meaning in the suffering.
The struggles life throws at you are now struggles you have to face on your own and sometimes that’s really hard.
Note to self: become YouTube famous.
He doesn’t just ask about your yesterday, but wants to be in your tomorrow.
I want to carve a space in my life for you, a you-shaped hole that you can fill with your laughter and smiles, your warmth and patience. I want to give you a place that you can call your own, that you can claim within me, and that I can learn to share, even with my stubborn heart.
You’ll know I’ve fallen for you when I want to show you my secret places. When I want to share the most precious spaces of the earth with you. When I want to bring you into where I’ve called home, where I’ve felt safe.
The only good thing about remembering who you really are is that you get to choose what you can take back with you and what you can leave behind. You get to decide which parts are worth fighting for and which parts need to go.
