The early bird gets the worm, but the early worm fucking dies. That's why you never go outside, checkmate bitches
All this called up what seemed to me to be a new love, a hundred times more profound than the old one. I was deeply moved. Yet at the same time I took the thing with a grain of salt. I had often known myself to be moved in the past, and little had come of it.

A wise man once said "can i put my balls in yo jaws" and that should be a lesson to all of us about the importance of consent
#combinedquote #profound #boyfriend #foodforthought so my boyfriend was talking about a character who died in a book who is also in a video game and I asked him if he’d rather have seen it instead of reading it and he goes “maybe in the game I could have done something or tried to help but in the book I was nothing but a shackled witness” and I’ll tell you what. That fucking blew my mind so then I said this quote on the picture lol. https://www.instagram.com/p/Cgk8WFQjFZD/?igshid=NGJjMDIxMWI=
"We’re so often rattled by lingering effects of trauma and paralyzing fear.
At first glance, they seem inextricable. Trauma, which is sorted differently in the brain than memory, seeps out of us as warnings of worse to come. Our self-centered fears whisper at us all day: our fear of exposure, of death, and that we will lose those we love most, that we will lose whatever advantage we hold, whatever meager gains we’ve made. We live in terror that our butts will show and people will run from us, screaming.
But let’s say we believe that mercy and forgiveness are in fact foundational, innate, what we are grown from and can build on; also that they are hard to access because of these traumas and fears. What if we know that forgiveness and mercy are what heal and restore and define us, that they are the fragrance that the rose leaves on the heel that crushes it?"
