“No matter how good things are, there will always be solitary nights you spend in your bedroom, in a car, or in a party full of your closest friends when it feels like the walls are caving in.”—(via uniquenicci)
Maybe it’s just as much about what comes our way, as it is how we react. Just as much about the things that we’ve still got, as it is about the things we lack. I know, we won’t always keep around those we feel we need- some will fade in frames, some were born to leave. But if we’re still here, and we still breathe, at least we’ve still got time to figure it out- to know what to do, to know how to feel, know the things that I’ve been making up inside my head. And to know what’s real.
“I missed you every hour. And you know what the worst part was? It caught me completely by surprise. I’d catch myself just walking around to find you, not for any reason, just out of habit, because I’d seen something that I wanted to tell you about or because I wanted to hear your voice. And then I’d realize that you weren’t there anymore, and every time, every single time, it was like having the wind knocked out of me.”—Leigh Bardugo, Shadow and Bone (via fawun)
“Masculinity cannot exist without femininity. On its own, masculinity has no meaning, because it is but one half of a set of power relations. Masculinity pertains to male dominance as femininity pertains to female subordination.”—Sheila Jeffreys, Unpacking Queer Politics (via hereticswords)
