There’s a Japanese phrase that I like: koi no yokan. It doesn’t mean love at first sight. It’s closer to love at second sight. It’s the feeling when you meet someone that you’re going to fall in love with them. Maybe you don’t love them right away, but it’s inevitable that you will.

Love didn’t hurt you. Someone who doesn’t know how to love you hurt you. Don’t confuse the two.

Whoever told you that you were hard to love didn’t truly see you when you spoke about everything you loved, didn’t understand your passion, didn’t know how hard it was for you to get up every morning despite the world trying to knock you down again. You are a bright burning galaxy and some people aren’t worthy of your light - but they don’t want to admit that the fault is their own. You aren’t hard to love. They just didn’t know how to love you for who you are.

I do not miss childhood, but I miss the way I took pleasure in small things, even as greater things crumbled. I could not control the world I was in, could not walk away from things or people or moments that hurt, but I took joy in the things that made me happy.

A healthy relationship is where two independent people just make a deal that they will help the other person be the best version of themselves.

I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy because they know what it’s like to feel absolutely worthless and they don’t want anyone else to feel like that.

When you are attracted to people, it's because of the details. Their kindness. Their eyes. The fact that they can get you to laugh when you need it the most.

I hope you find a best friend who chooses to love the parts of you where you are most misunderstood so your wounds can blossom into spring. I hope you find a best friend who encourages you to be your fullest and most authentic self and admires the way you see existence in a unique and weird way. I hope you find a best friend who will always be by your side when you’re tormented by your depression and demons. I hope you find a best friend who truly wishes for your betterment and healing. I hope you find a best friend who will grow strong with you despite everything.
Juansen Dizon, Best Friend

i have been thinking about the way we, in love, give power to others. this sense - i am allowing you enough room that you could set the house on fire.
when i was younger, people used to tell me it was going to be different after-your-first-love. it has been. it's been easier, most of the time. i know who i am. i used to think it was romantic to say i gave him everything i am. now i know that the right people will not ask for that - they don't want to take from you, only to help you build. i used to think it was lonely, the way adults said we have our own lives. now i know what it is to have that other-life be separated - how wonderful, to have someone i can share with, and someone who celebrates my life and the way i have grown into it.
people said: after you have been hurt, it will be different.
this is true about most things, after all. my experiences were branded on my body. i don't talk about the scars, and you're too smart to ask, and we're both healing. i used to be able to do certain gymnastics tricks - but i fell once, and i haven't been able to get over the mental barrier since then.
the thing is - we learn these stop-measures because someone took advantage of us first. we learn how far is too far because someone forced us too-far. as a kid, i thought there is no too far was romantic. i didn't know better.
it took me a very long time to rebuild parts of my life after him. it took me a very long time to rebuild parts of my character. i think i probably still have rooms without any floors. places that only go down. ceilings full of spraypainted warnings.
i have been thinking about the ways new love comes in. and we crack open each sealed door together, one-at-a-time. and i hear myself in front of her, nervous, saying if you start a fire, please keep it contained in here, it's a place i can afford to lose.
and i hear her, time and time again, utterly confused: why would i do that? it's beautiful in here. i don't want to hurt you.
the way we know it can hurt, and we love anyway. the way we walk the thin ice and say - the risk is worth the skating.
