Brown parents be like: wow she’s a phD student, won the nobel peace prize and cured cancer but its a shame she’s not married.
I’d really like a drink just about now.
If you can’t be at peace with yourself, happy with your own companionship then perhaps… all is lost.
Sometimes you need to remind yourself that you were the one who carried you through the heartache. You are the one who sits with the cold body on the shower floor, and picks it up. You are the one who feeds it, who clothes it, who tucks it into bed, and you should be proud of that. Having the strength to take care of yourself when everyone around you is trying to bleed you dry, that is the strongest thing in the universe.
I absolutely needed to read that.
I am going through the worst time off life and have been for the past couple of months. What is even worse is knowing that I haven’t even suffered the full consequences on falling for you yet. May God help me through the next year. May God have mercy on my heart.
