"It’s often unhealthy to hyper-analyze your sexuality to the point where how you experience your attraction pattern(s) changes where you belong. This is why the idea that broader terms are somehow more restrictive is baffling. Continuously breaking labels down and creating terminology for each facet of one’s identity shrinks communities until it’s just one person convinced that they’re the only one who relates to their experiences. It isolates people and ignores the importance of individuality within a collective identity."
On Hyperpersonalized Sexual Identity - Kravitz M.

It's summer now, and you're craving a simpler existence. You want to read. You want to write. You want to meet strangers for dinner, and not refuse another drink at another bar. You want to dance. You want to find yourself in a basement, neck loose, bobbing your head as a group of musicians play, not because they should, but because they must. It's summer now, and you're looking forward to worrying less. You're looking forward to longer nights and shorter days. You're looking forward to gathering in back gardens and watching meat sputter on an open barbecue. You're looking forward to laughing so hard your chest hurts and you feel light-headed. You're looking forward to the safety in pleasure. You're looking forward to forgetting, albeit briefly, the existential dread which plagues you, which tightens your chest, which pains your left side. You're looking forward to forgetting that, leaving the house, you might not return intact. You're looking forward to freedom, even if it is short, even if it might not last. You're looking forward.

being just like other girls is so fun. taylor swift and twilight and rom coms, "I didn't have it in myself to go with grace", little women and midsommar, crystals and plants and wandavision, "she would've made such a lovely bride what a shame she's fucked in the head", olivia rodrigo, florence pugh, tangled and howl's moving castle, "women have minds as well as just hearts, and they've got ambition and talent as well as just beauty", pride and prejudice, "if I could dream at all, it would be about you. And I'm not ashamed of it", squishmallows, harry styles, mitski and phoebe bridgers and ukuleles and led lights, polaroids, makeup, planning outfits, "what is grief if not love persevering", pink, literally what's not to love

You ache. You ache all over. You are aching to be you, but you’re scared of what it means to do so.

I love that hour of the party when everyone’s settled into their discomfort and someone tells you something really important—in passing—because it’s too painful any other way.
— Alex Dimitrov, from “Love,” Love and Other Poems
