you know, when the movies show couples who basically only kiss and cuddle and hold hands and be cute together, they make you forget that there are other parts of life that still exist when you’re in love. like, sorry, i really love making out with you but i have homework and laundry and also i have anxiety so if i don’t do these things i’ll hate myself. even if we’re making out.
don’t believe the movies. but still look for love. because making out.
i don’t need you to decide what’s good for me. i can do that. i can decide it’s still not good for me and do it anyway. i can learn. i want a life that is unrestricted by boundaries made for me by others who are “looking out for me” and my “best interest”. my best interest is what interests ME best. you are an ornament on my life, and you can be a shitty plastic shiny ball that i replace after a year or you can be that $40 ceramic piece of meaning that hangs from the tree every year until i’m too weak to decorate anymore. i want to hike in the wilderness with little to no contact with my family. i want to travel to every single photograph i see that causes an endless craving within me. i want to be tied to nothing but my dreams. i can’t be told that it won’t happen. YOU won’t happen. this is my life and it’s going the way i want it to. YOLO in the most natural sense of the word. fuck anyone who says no. move on. i need a life that is as fulfilled by me as i am by it.
