"For each of us there comes a moment, a defining instant in our lives when we are changed forever. There comes a moment in everyone's life when you stop wondering and begin to Believe."
Shout out to oceanshoreline for allowing me to ramble about music and the bands I adore.
I just want to say thank you to my friends who have reached out to me these past three weeks. You guys have made it so much more bearable than the past year. Even though distance is a killer you guys come shining through. It’s a reminder that people who you hang out with because it’s convenient aren’t your real friends. Friendship is about strengthening each other, supporting each other, and just listening. You can be that for someone from 50 miles away to 4,000 miles away. So again, thank you so much. I love you guys.
And to all my followers, if you noticed my absence, I apologize for leaving you hanging if you think I’m interesting or anything, but I can’t promise I’ll be posting actively again. There’s just way too many books on my shelf, trails to hike, concerts to attend, and animals to cuddle. My mental health should be my priority and I shouldn’t be on social media if it just reminds me of the people who brought me down. So thank you to you guys for your patience as well
I have been taught
to start questions with I’m sorries
and slumped shoulders.
To take what I am given
and feel happy I was even thought of.
To look to my brother
as a master and protector,
not a competitor.
We are not equal.
I am well-educated in the art
of lessening and taking away
To daintily tiptoe around his ego
because god forbid
I make a mark.
