Intimacy. It’s what I crave and also what terrifies me the most.
A friend says: “I’ll be friendly towards him. But if you want me to punch him in the face, I will.”
I have learnt to love from my mother and she loves like a lion. (How do lions love?)
Fear does not protect us. It is walking around a strange house at night–barefoot, blind, scared. Then sun will not come up until we’re comfortable with the darkness. Or, the sun will come up, but the night will always follow, so we must learnt to feel safe in the dark.
A friend says: “If you’re devastated, be it. There is no beauty or freedom in holding it in.”
You have to live without love, learn not to need it, in order to live with it.
We feel better just by being with each other. I guess that’s called love.
“We have a lot of brothers we never had.”
“Asking someone to love you is listening to your heart’s desire. Pride is how you pick yourself up afterwards.”
Telling a cat nuzzling a book, “You can’t get affection from a book,” then, amending that statement…”If you can’t read.”
The key to controlling time is to think about it– or not.
We never stop loving anyone or fall out of love completely. It fades but can never disappear. Or the you that loved them gets smaller as you evolve and change. But the you that loved them will still always exist, even as a small, forgotten room in the mansion of your morphing soul
It is possible to be happy with the thought of past distress. Surviving trauma, and finding you still have the ability to laugh and love afterwards, means everything will be okay, always.
How many people have we walked by again and again in various suburbs or cities or even countries, and we just don’t know because we don’t know each other?
Sometimes we are better at playing the role of ourselves than actually being ourselves.
Lips are so much more intimate than tongues.
We cannot support equality if we do not include ourselves.

I am a puppy with love but rarely meet people that excite me.
“I fell in love the way you fell asleep; slowly, and then all at once.” YES.
You learn not to need people.
