Love is not affectionate feeling, but a steady wish for the loved person’s ultimate good as far as it can be obtained.
This is a culture that overemphasizes the sort of heteronormative thing that for women the most important relationship of their lives is going to be the dude that they’re going to fall in love with, as if everybody is straight and that this is the script, and yet, look from my experience as a brother, my sister’s longest, most painful heartbreak was a Sula-like heartbreak, where the most important relationship of her life was a woman. And yet she never had a space to acknowledge or honor it until after it was all over. And that idea of the controlling male or the controlling paradigm that tends to leave that story out I think is very, very important.

Hate is a choice.
Mama, please don’t cry
I’m right beside you
The tears we shed together are now an irreplaceable treasure
Mama, can you hear it?
Thank you, coming from my heart
Sometimes she drives me positively crazy, but I still love my mommy. <3
It’s all about falling in love with yourself and sharing that love with someone who appreciates you, rather than looking for love to compensate for a self love deficit.
