You can’t find intimacy—you can’t find home—when you’re always hiding behind masks. Intimacy requires a certain level of vulnerability. It requires a certain level of you exposing your fragmented, contradictory self to someone else. You running the risk of having your core self rejected and hurt and misunderstood.

You were red. You liked me cause I was blue. You touched me and suddenly I was a lilac sky and you decided purple just wasn’t for you.

Every morning you wake up, do this one little thing for yourself: Thank yourself. Thank your legs for taking you to all your favorite places. Thank your arms for the heavy things it carries. Thank your eyes for the beauty it gazes. Most importantly thank your heart everyday. You woke up today and you decided to go out and live.
