There is so much beauty in where you come from. So much that it terrifies some of the people in this foreign land because they do not come from there.
Speaking Your Mind
See, physical love will not last. Beauty will fade, attraction will dwindle, and passion for the body will be replaced by passion for the mind. And that’s the love I want to have.
Taking yourself out of a toxic situation, or into a healthy one is not wrong. Establishing where you stand in regards to a certain issue or choice is not wrong. Being honest about your emotions, even if it might make someone feel ‘bad’ in the process is not wrong.
It’s easy to be wise in theory. A lot harder in practice.
It’s fostering self-love and self-acceptance, understanding that your body and your mind are perfect as they are and that defying conventional beauty standards will help change the world for the better.
It’s time to see yourself as the wonderfully complex being you are—flawed but original, imperfect but beautiful.
Taking control of your narrative. Correcting people when they misspeak, or have incorrect assumptions about you and your life.
Your need to have the last word.
If you want her, you are going to have to fight for the relationship. She will do the same, but she won’t do it alone. She won’t be the only person putting effort into your love.
Anchorage: The longing to grasp a moment between your fingertips, to hold onto the sentences, the words, the memories and keep them with you.
