zeven pakjes sigaretten sinds je weg ging. enkele flessen wijn. een paar gesprekken. over dat ik beter af ben zo. over dat er schouders zijn om op te huilen. maar niemand vraagt me of het huis nog naar je ruikt. of ik je kleren al terug gaf. of ik gestopt ben met huilen, uiteindelijk. ik tel de dagen niet meer.

I am the girl that ‘got hot’ after highschool.

It’s not because I lost the weight or finally figured out that clothes were for more than covering my skin. It’s not because I realized I had breasts or because I grew into my face and grew out my hair. It’s not because I stopped trying to hide my height, and I definitely didn’t just randomly develop social skills.

The reason I ‘got hot’ after highschool is because there was no one telling me I wasn’t.

“You don’t get it. I barely understood it. I crave the kind of partner that will tell me when I’m wrong. Someone who will take the time to say to me ‘This is going to be a sucky conversation because it’s going to be uncomfortable but if I don’t tell you, I can’t be certain anyone will and I want you to grow continuously into a superb human being.’ Do you get it? Don’t you want someone who wants you to keep growing?”
