There is no need to text in heaven.
I hate that we can’t openly crave love without appearing to lack self-love. Intimacy is a necessity and no one should ever feel like they’re robbing themselves of anything by asking for someone to share that kind of love with them. You’re not weak because you want someone to look at you like you’re gold. You can look at yourself like you’re gold but I promise that the greatest thing we’ll share as humans is a connection. Connect.
I read this hours ago and I thought a lot about it while I was doing my nighttime things (eating, lying down, making pudding). I watched videos of Brené Brown talking about understanding shame and the necessity of being vulnerable by accident. I had A Reaction because I am motivated by shame and committed to control. That combination is such a barrier when trying to connect with other humans or just be real. I’ve never wanted to put anything on the line but maybe the line is where living happens. I’m still having a time. It’s really exhausting.
