I wish you were in this room with me right now. I wish I could put my arms around you. I wish I could touch you.
It’s better to have nobody, than to have someone who is half there, or doesn’t want to be there.
I never change, I simply become more myself.
One thing I’ve learned in life is that I can speak for myself and that I can fight my own battles. I don’t like anyone telling me how I’m supposed to feel or what I’m supposed to say.
I began to draw an invisible boundary between myself and other people. No matter who I was dealing with. I maintained a set distance, carefully monitoring the person’s attitude so that they wouldn’t get any closer. I didn’t easily swallow what other people told me. My only passions were books and music.
Some books you read. Some books you enjoy. But some books just swallow you up, heart and soul.
A brick in one of the plazas in my town….really makes me wonder who put it there and why.
Softness is not weakness.
It takes courage to stay delicate
in a world this cruel.
