I hope there are days when you fall in love with being alive.
Making out with a girl for the first time is the coolest thing and the second coolest thing is driving home and getting aware of all the parts of your face where she was and tasting her lip balm on your lips. The third coolest thing is outer space.
"you’re not a bad person for the ways you tried to kill your sadness"
i love you
I don’t care that you got into drugs for three months straight, or how much sleep you lost in that period. I don’t care that you went home and fucked that person and woke up at 6am hating everything about yourself, or that you smoked so much you sounded as though your lungs were giving out.
You’re not a bad person for the ways you tried to kill your sadness.
You’re just human, and being human means you need to survive and you do so whichever way you deem fit, fuck everyone else.
You figure out, over time,
that the world doesn’t end
when you open your mouth.
That saying how you feel is only scary
‘till it’s over.
That your chest feels lighter
when you don’t keep your words
You learn, overtime,
that heartbreak is rough
but that it isn’t something
to be afraid of.
And when you choose a life partner, you’re choosing a lot of things, including your parenting partner and someone who will deeply influence your children, your eating companion for about 20,000 meals, your travel companion for about 100 vacations, your primary leisure time and retirement friend, your career therapist, and someone whose day you’ll hear about 18,000 times.
