She has become an expert at confusing what is with what was with what should be with what could be.

Write her a letter, send her a flower, love only gets old if you let it.

notes to self:
- people who don’t care about you, no matter how much you care about them, aren’t worth your energy so let them go
- choosing to be happy does not mean ignoring the sadness and pain that demand to be felt
- probably the best thing you can do for yourself is to refuse to be embarrassed or ashamed of any part of you
You have my permission not to love me; I am a cathedral of deadbolts and I’d rather burn myself down than change the locks.
Rachel McKibbens, ”Letter from My Heart to My Brain” (via pacifism)
