"When I was little, I thought being an adult was one of the greatest feats ever. I thought that if I reach adulthood, I would have all the knowledge in the world. I would be so great just like the people I looked up to then. I couldn’t wait to grow up and answer to myself. I would be able to do things on my own, without the aid of a helping hand. When I was little, I thought I would have everything figured out by the time I’m an adult. I’ve reached my teenage years and I’m close to being done with that milestone, and I still haven’t figured everything out. I don’t think I’ve even come close to reaching the half-point of it all. I’m far from an all-powerful oracle of knowledge. I’m far from being the best person that I have the potential to be. I still answer to many things besides myself (sometimes even more so to those than my own self). I still reach for a helping hand whenever things get rough, or even when they’re smooth sailing. I’m not sure where to begin and where to end, and if I even want to know at all. These restless feelings of lost and uncertainty are unnerving. Sometimes, I find myself awake at night wondering if I’ll ever figure things out. If I’ll ever find myself. If I’ll ever stop listening to outside voices, drown what needs to be forgotten, save what needs to be remembered, and live up to my potential. Sometimes, I wish I can go back in time and tell my younger self, “hush, dear child. Don’t rush your life. Look forward, but don’t step too forward too fast.” I wish I had someone then who warned me about growing up too fast."



do you ever think about how weird reading is

our eyes are able to scan these different symbols and construct the scenarios and concepts they describe in our mind

and these concepts have the power to twist our emotions and make us cry and laugh and wow reading is weird

i think it’s one of the most beautiful things in the world

"You have so many layers, that you can peel away a few, and everyone’s so shocked or impressed that you’re baring your soul, while to you it’s nothing, because you know you’ve twenty more layers to go."
