“My alone feels so good. I’ll only have you if you’re sweeter than my solitude.”
- Warsan Shire (via onlinecounsellingcollege)



Someone asked me once:
“When was the last time
God let you down?”

I smiled and proudly announced
“All praise is due to Allah,
there was never a first time.

My Lord owes me nothing,
but still He gives me everything.
He is Al-Majid, The Glorious.”


  • Periods aren’t a big deal for some people
  • Periods are extremely disabling for some people
  • Pain is subjective and it’s different for everyone
  • Stop arguing about this


"I don’t know" has become such an automatic answer that even when I do know I don’t know

why can’t plane tickets be like 10 dollars

“What is an “instant” death anyway? How long is an instant? Is it one second? Ten? The pain of those seconds must have been awful as her heart burst and her lungs collapsed and there was no air and no blood to her brain and only raw panic. What the hell is instant? Nothing is instant. Instant rice takes five minutes, instant pudding an hour. I doubt that an instant of blinding pain feels particularly instantaneous.”


I wish people didn’t think silence was awkward, just enjoy it. Not every space has to be filled with words.


"love is blind" they said
you mentioned the moon and I saw it
for the first time
you asked if I was cold and my teeth started to chatter
where was I, darling, if I was not there?
you pointed at the tree and I looked at your hand
you spoke of its flowers
and I looked at your mouth
what am I, darling, if I am not with you?


Liv & Ingmar (2012): Both you and I have a lot of intensive presence. And an enormous ability to put ourselves in other people’s emotions. And especially each other’s. We also have an intensive ability to affect other people and make them experience what we experience. And we have an ability to affect each other. We make each other alive. It doesn’t make a difference if it hurts.” — Ingmar Bergman
