I’m standing tall after
a wasted war.
I’m holding up. I’m holding up.
Even when the spaces of my spine
remind me of our distance, I don’t
miss you. No, not anymore.
You never need to apologize
for how you chose to survive.
All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence that you know.
There’s nothing wrong with not understanding yourself.
Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
1. Sometimes you’ll be like, “HEY EVERYONE LET’S DO SUSHI AND DRINKS AND FUN STUFF TOMORROW NIGHT!” but then tomorrow night comes and you regret everything as you try to weasel your way out of plans that you created. You resent 24-Hours-Ago-You for being so enthusiastic.
