so since I turn 21 in ~30 minutes.. my gift to myself this year is to stop minimising how I feel to people, to stop neglecting to tell people when they’ve hurt me, and stop explaining away why I feel how I feel.

When I was seventeen, my mother said to me “Don’t stop imagining. The day that you do is the day that you die.”

going from talking to someone every day to talking to them not at all is word and strange and I don’t like it. I’m genuinely sad things are over. & that I won’t be spending my 21st with him.

“If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.”

– C.S. Lewis

I feel like every time something crappy happens I’m always asking my friends am I allowed to be upset and I’m wondering if that’s a personal thing or how we’re all conditioned… but I feel like there are some things I’m not “supposed” to be upset about or “allowed” to be upset about (maybe it’s bc I’m not “actually” dating someone or whatever) and I just get frustrated and don’t want to seem like I’m over reacting (or reacting at all). 

I don’t even know how much this matters because I seriously never tell people when they’ve upset me…
