I read your post about how you're content to be alone and I just wanna say THANK YOU! I've wanted love in my life, but I don't have a lot of love to give. I lost myself for a while last year and before that I've gone through stuff that have left me closed off and damaged. I am, for the first time in my life building myself up again. just today I was telling my mom how society has this concept that at a certain age you have to find love so it was good to read something I could relate to, thanks.
Oh anon I can’t believe I missed this message.
You are so brave and kind to yourself for taking time to work on you and to find who you are again. I can empathise a lot with what you said.
I think falling in love and having the strength to open yourself up to that kind of thing takes a lot of guts and a kind of bravery to allow yourself to drop defences that, to some, are worth being alone for to keep up and retain your sanity and comfort. It’s not easy but I think it takes just as much strength to be by yourself and make the choice to only focus on that :)
I know this is out of the blue, and I'm not actually expecting you to say yes, and I'd like to apologize in advance if this comes across as rude... but are you ever going to finish The Little Things? And if you're not, did you have any sort of idea as to what the end of the story was going to be like? It was my first and favorite klaine fic I've ever read, and I really do miss it.
I get a lot of these and I’m so sorry for not replying because sometimes I don’t know how to phrase what I want to say.
Writing was something I did to take my mind off a rough part of my life and I loved every second but I grew to associate it with bad times and I found it very hard to shake that.
I am so grateful for the kind comments and support given to me but I stopped writing a long time ago. I’d love to be able to pick it up again someday but that day is not today. I have written for other fandom a which I’ve never posted but it’s a work in progress !
Thank you for being so sweet though :)
“Breathe. You’re going to be okay. Breathe and remember that you’ve been in this place before. You’ve been this uncomfortable and anxious and scared, and you’ve survived. Breathe and know that you can survive this too. These feelings can’t break you. They’re painful and debilitating, but you can sit with them and eventually, they will pass. Maybe not immediately, but sometime soon, they are going to fade and when they do, you’ll look back at this moment and laugh for having doubted your resilience. I know it feels unbearable right now, but keep breathing, again and again. This will pass. I promise it will pass.”—Daniell Koepke (via arabarabarab)
I almost cried when Emma talked again and again with so much pessimism. She expects the bad things, the disappointments and never considers that good can come to her because when it has it has hurt her so badly that she is now so frightened to try.
It’s so human and sad and painful and god do you ever just empathise with a character so much?
I want her to have her lovely moments and to have a CHOICE in her life, something she can accept that she wants and that only brings her joy.
I actually loved it when Hook said, “Emma? Who’s Emma?”
Because guys, it was so completely blatant an attempt to get his mind off of her. He was hurting so badly, it hadn’t even been two days yet but he’s backing off and drinking and feeling like he’s lost her already and…
