I feel things deeply. I don’t know how else to feel them. I cry reading the news. I laugh reading text messages. I get inspired by underdogs. I get angry for you more than you’re angry for yourself. It doesn’t mean I’m crazy. It just means I’m okay with being me. If you’re not okay with that, I’m okay with you not being okay with that, but it still won’t change how I feel things.

I concur

But no circumstance, other person, or activity can ever justify my sin. I sin, Jesus said, because [my heart is sinful. ]That is a shattering reality. But we must humbly face it if we want to be spiritually healed.

I will only let you touch me
if your hands are so full of intention that every brush of your palms feels like you writing a novel on my skin.

I used to tell my golf buddy I couldn’t play, because of x, y, z. Now I just say, I can’t play period. We immigrants (and children of immigrants) always feel the need to explain ourselves to people, never realizing how much that suggests you’re coming from a position of weakness. That you’re willing to beg people to understand and respect you. Especially people in positions of power and authority. Even if they work for you!

… It is also instructive to look at what expectant fathers are searching for. In Mexico, the top searches about “my pregnant wife” include “frases de amor para mi esposa embarazada” (words of love to my pregnant wife) and “poemas para mi esposa embarazada” (poems for my pregnant wife). In the United States, the top searches include “my wife is pregnant now what” and “my wife is pregnant what do I do.”

Épistolaire

I’m not quite a novelist but I write letters to people who may not receive. I write letters to my future children. I write letters to my present loves and my future love. Paul wrote letters which became a testament. Let my letters be a testament of my love, my pain, and my journey

INFP: Performing noble service to aid society

myersandbriggs:

In daily life, you probably:

• Are reserved, gentle, calm and sensitive.

• Value integrity and deep relationships. You are a very loyal, devoted and committed friend.

• Have very strongly held core values and beliefs.

• Want others to appreciate your dreams and aspirations.

• Are curious…

That’s me exactly

learning2swim:

I think relationships in general are over romanticized like at the end of the day I’m pretty sure a good relationship is just two people who know how to hang out and talk to each other not whether or not they can right all your wrongs or paint a picture of a thousand suns with the breath from your lungs or some shit

It’s dangerous to equate love with money, because currency falters along with income. Love is effort but effortless. Love is patient, kind, long suffering. Don’t confuse capitalistic desire with love because it’s not for sale. You can not buy it in vending machines or off street corners. We go to universities and learn skills but fail to learn to love and it’s dangerous.
