when you fuck up and realize there’s nothing you can do so you just accept it
There’s a list as long as my leg that I’ve compiled from all the books I’ve read in my teenage years. Books that have told me the right way to hold a person and the wrong way to kiss them. Books that have given me step by step guidelines about how I should react when my lover tells me that there is a sadness trapped in them like kidney stones. The writers have told me to be tender, to be open—but not too open. I should be like a house where only the kitchen windows are open so the strong smells can leave.
I’ve been going through this list like a north wind but I’ve been putting crosses next to each one instead of ticks. I thought I’d be a professional lover by now. But it’s funny, isn’t it? You think you can love anyone until you actually try.

"I want to tell everyone, ‘You’re perfectly fine right now.’ No one told me that. I hope people can think, ‘I’m great the way I am. I’m doing fine. Even if I can’t reach the criteria of success measured and necessitated by society, even if I’m weeded out, I’m beautiful the way I am. I’m pretty, I’m perfectly fine without having to think about other people’s opinions and stereotypes.’"
