"A long time ago, before I even met you,
someone replaced my chest with a broken record.
For years, it’s been stammering through
the same old tune.
I want you to know I’m trying.
I quit smoking. I’m doing yoga. And those days
I wake up wishing for death are getting fewer
and farther apart.
No, I’m not ok. But I haven’t been ok
since I was 11, maybe 12. I am still here though.
I’m still breathing. For me, sometimes, that
will have to be enough"
"The greatest gift you can give someone is the space to be his or herself, without the threat of you leaving."
"its okay, im used to it."
I show affection for my pets by holding them against me and whispering I love you repeatedly as they struggle to escape from my arms
do you ever just meet someone who you think you wouldn’t really get close to but then like a year later they’ve become very close and dear to you and you just kinda think, wow im really glad i met this person i don’t know what i’d do without them
It’s usually in the reverse for me, tbh
