I just feel so damn fucking dead inside.
person: wow you drink so much water, you're so healthy!!
me: i cry so much i gotta stay hydrated
So please ask yourself: What would I do if I weren’t afraid? And then go do it.
― Sheryl Sandberg (Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead)
And it was after months of silence that I realised we make better strangers than we ever did anything else.
It’s dark because you are trying too hard. Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly. Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them. I was so preposterously serious in those days…Lightly, lightly—it’s the best advice ever given me. So throw away your baggage and go forward. There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet, trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. That’s why you must walk so lightly. Lightly, my darling.
