One heart is not connected to another through harmony alone. They are, instead, linked deeply through their wounds. Pain linked to pain, fragility to fragility. There is no silence without a cry of grief, no forgiveness without bloodshed, no acceptance without a passage through acute loss. That is what lies at the root of true harmony.

“Not just beautiful, though—the stars are like the trees in the forest, alive and breathing. And they’re watching me.”~ Haruki Murakami

A good relationship is when two people accept each other’s past, support each other’s present, and love each other enough to encourage each other’s future. So don’t rush love. Find a partner who encourages you to grow, who won’t cling to you, who will let you go out into the world, and trust that you will come back. This is what true love is all about.
It’s sort of weird if you think about it. We live in a pretty apathetic age, yet we’re surrounded by an enormous amount of information about other people. If you feel like it, you can easily gather that information about them. Having said that, we still hardly know anything about people.
I close my eyes, but I can’t fall asleep, my body dying for rest while my mind’s wide awake.
I’m not so weird to me.

Love can rebuild the world, they say, so everything’s possible when it comes to love.

"After Dark" by Harriet Lee-Merrion
I might think I can’t take it any more, that I can’t go on any more, but one way or another I get past that.
I became so accustomed to feeling lost that any time someone gave me a sense of belonging, I felt the need to leave them. Now the absence of what was once there makes my bones ache.
