Sometimes, you want to do it all yourself. Sometimes, you don’t want anyone’s help. And sometimes, you (bullheadedly) insist on being the hero in your own fairy tale. Sometimes, that person is me.

It’s okay if…you didn’t say the right thing. It’s okay if…you really fucked up the first time around. It’s okay if…you fucked up the second time […]
If you walked in the door right now, I don’t know if I’d run and hug you hard, or if you’d seem like a stranger now. I’d like to think that I’d hug you. I’d like to think that I’d bury my face into your chest and you’d smell like your old cologne–which kind, I […]
