"What I know about living is the pain is never just ours."
do you ever just get absolutely astounded by the people in your life? like. wow. how can i even let you know how much i appreciate your existence?
"You don’t owe prettiness to anyone. Not to your boyfriend/spouse/partner, not to your co-workers, especially not to random men on the street. You don’t owe it to your mother, you don’t owe it to your children, you don’t owe it to civilization in general. Prettiness is not a rent you pay for occupying a space marked “female”."
