Grief is like the ocean; it comes on waves ebbing and flowing. Sometimes the water is calm, and sometimes it is overwhelming. All we can do is learn to swim.

My blog turned 5 years old yesterday.

Oh how I’ve changed in that time… 

Looking back on old posts is not a good thing for me to be doing right now. I never thought things would turn out this way or that I’d be feeling this way. It sucks and I’m angry lately. 

Do not look for a sanctuary in anyone except your self.

There’s nothing harder
than putting yourself back
together every morning.

wtm, ten word poem (via missinyouiskillingme)

I decided on you, don’t you get that? I decided on you. I don’t want to go fucking other people and then walk around feeling thrilled and then sad, or empty, or whatever. I like the smell of your hair, and I like the sound of your voice, and I fucking decided on you.
