"someone can be madly in love with you and still not be ready. they can love you in a way you have never been loved and still not join you on the bridge. and whatever their reasons you must leave. because you never ever have to inspire anyone to meet you on the bridge. you never ever have to convince someone to do the work to be ready. there is more extraordinary love, more love that you have never seen, out here in this wide and wild universe. and there is the love that will be ready."

nayyirah waheed love poetry quotes note to self

"Journeying home: I’ve spent an insufferable amount of time searching in the hearts of others, this is the first time, in this long and ground-scorned life, that I am attempting to reside in myself. I do this for myself and because I have little people who need for me and who deserves for me to be me"

 Progress!
