A New Adventure
October 1st — celebrated by my best friend as the best day of the year, and this year I get to be…
I want to say somewhere: I’ve tried to be forgiving. And yet. There were times in my life, whole years, when anger got the better of me. Ugliness turned me inside out. There was a certain satisfaction in bitterness. I courted it. It was standing outside, and I invited it in.
Girls like us, when we love, it takes everything we have.

I am not here to tell you tomorrow is another day. That the sun will go on shining. What I will tell you is this; It’s okay to be hurting as much as you are. What you are feeling is not only completely valid but necessary — because it makes you so much more human. And although I can’t promise it will get better any time soon, I can tell you that it will — eventually. For now, all you can do is take your time. Take all the time you need.
I wonder if I will ever have the strength to hold onto something. Or if I will always be someone who destroys.
