if I’m being completely honest, I feel like healthy love is kind of overlooked, if that makes sense. maybe I’m just being melodramatic, but I never found anything beautiful in the ”I need you to be happy”, “you’re the one good thing I have in my life” kind of mentality, you know? I was there once, I think, dry-sobbing against the grimy pink wall of a school bathroom because a boy wanted to talk to my friends and not me and my first thought was that I would never be worthy of love. those thoughts went downhill fast, to the point where I don’t want to talk about them even when I’m anonymous.
can we talk about happy mindsets relating more to love? let's think about how we were always good enough, but the people we love just remind us of it in their own unique ways. let's talk about all the good our loves inspire us to do, all that they do for us. how, again, we are not defined by who wants to kiss us and who we want to spend our time with.
I don't know how to put it exactly, to be honest. anybody else know what I mean?
