1. Today someone asked me how my night was going.

    "C+, 5/10, wouldn’t do again".

    Then I stopped to think about it; six months ago, I would have moved mountains for a night I’d call a 5/10. Would have killed to just be able to say I felt neutral instead of shitty.

    This means good things for me, for my life. It means I’m in a good place.

     
  2. How strange it is. We have these deep terrible lingering fears about ourselves and the people we love. Yet we walk around, talk to people, eat and drink. We manage to function. The feelings are deep and real. Shouldn’t they paralyze us? How is it we can survive them, at least for a little while? We drive a car, we teach a class. How is it no one sees how deeply afraid we were, last night, this morning? Is it something we all hide from each other, by mutual consent? Or do we share the same secret without knowing it? Wear the same disguise?

    • no more soda
    • think about why and how
    • do not feel obligated by anyone who doesn’t give you the care you deserve
    • everyone has a past lover
    • everyone has a future lover
    • the lack is normal
    • your feelings are temporary. Your feelings will always change and will change according to many different people, environments, etc.
    • Intimacy isn’t only physicality, it is the ability to appreciate, grow, nurture, and accept, your partner
    • the pit in your stomach reminds you that your feelings impact your insides, it’s how we feel alive
    • I like guys who know how to talk to me
    • music you love changes meaning as you change, like all other endeavors
    • don’t worry about the space being taken up in someone’s heart by someone else. It is not a reflection on you. Affection is fluid and cannot be duplicated
    • Your siblings have the unique position of observing how you posture yourself in your public and private life, remember this
    • It’s okay to let yourself be absorbed in art and to feel selfish 
    • The means may render the end inconsequential and that’s a good thing
    • vomit/tears/tremors are necessary now more than ever
    • the tension you feel between being invisible and hyper-visible will never go away
    • you are exactly where you need to be, there is no rush for anything at all
