your biggest crush should be on yourself, you should always go out of your way to do little things to put a smile on your face, make sure you’re happy and confident just like you would do to someone else you care for, because when you have that sort of consideration for yourself it’s so much easier to give to other people
I still wonder. Who wouldn’t? What would life look like if we had just let go, fell into each other, let the dark water swallow our limbs?
I always imagined myself an adventurer. I always imagined myself a nomad, but then I was face to face with your heart; face to face with always missing your mouth; face to face with napping in airplane terminals and living out of a suitcase; face to face with saying I love you to a phone receiver; face to face with pretending a pillow is your body for days, weeks, maybe months at a time. There I was, face to face, with a love that would leave me lonely and I turned my back on my feelings—left them at the border of our friendship and went back home alone.
I still wonder what might have happened if I stayed. I still wonder what might happened if you’d turned around. I still wonder what might have happened if we’d been braver, been stronger—what might have happened if we tried."
