most importantly love like it’s the only thing you know how at the end of the day all this means nothing this page where you’re sitting your degree your job the money nothing even matters except love and human connection who you loved and how deeply you loved them how you touched the people around you and how much you gave them
When someone starts to go out of their way to make your life easier (especially when your life is pretty complicated and exhausting) it does, in result, make your life much easier. But in exchange, it adds difficulty to theirs.
And I know, those who give should not expect in return.
And I know, those who go out of their way to help someone are doing it out of their own will.
But it must, at some point, become damaging to the person and/or the relationship as a whole.
And I know, that the taker can give back in return in other ways, but what if it doesn’t compare?
What if it isn’t enough?
What is it isn’t as often?
Is this what leads us to expectations and standards? And when they stops expending, is this what leads us to feel unloved and conclusively lead to downfall?
A friend said to me the other day, “Have you ever heard that saying? ‘If you a writer falls in love with you, you can never die.’ Cause, you know, they will always be in their writing, out there in the world forever.”
Nothing ever resonated so deeply, and what a blessing and a curse that is.
