“You,” he said, “are a terribly real thing in a terribly false world, and that, I believe, is why you are in so much pain.”
Grief does not change you. It reveals you.
In the midst of hate, I found there was, within me, an invincible love. In the midst of tears, I found there was, within me, an invincible smile. In the midst of chaos, I found there was, within me, an invincible calm. I realized, through it all…that in the middle of winter, I finally found that within me there lies an invincible summer. And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger—something better, pushing right back.
here’s to wishin’ my whole (extended, too) family wasn’t as fucked up. maybe i’ll have a family one day that’s not, but until then…i got to deal w this shit?
sometimes i wish i could choose friends as family. is that terrible?

i’m grateful to weather the tide with you. you are my raft in this tumultuous sea. even when we are a part of the tumult, it’s nice to know i always find my way back to you, i find your hand reaching out for mine and we are strength in interlocking fingertips. we always work it out, like a song on repeat, we get to the bridge, and then we’re there over troubled waters. and i hope we remember to remember that money isn’t only found in dollar bills and debit cards, we’ve got it in the way we love and understand. there’s value to that, and i’ll keep it tucked away safe, don’t worry.
“Does it hurt?” asked the Rabbit.
