The longer I live, the more deeply I learn that love — whether we call it friendship or family or romance — is the work of mirroring and magnifying each other’s light.
∆ James Baldwin, Nothing Personal
document moments when you feel happy- journaling, voice memos. its important to remember those moments than to bask in anxiety/pain/sadness/insecurity. i record voice memos to my future self to listen to. its oddly soothing to hear my own voice
If you hold your hand closed, nothing good can come in. The open hand is blessed, for it gives in abundance, even as it receives.
