    I spent a lot of years trying to outrun or outsmart vulnerability by making things certain and definite, black and white, good and bad. My inability to lean into the discomfort of vulnerability limited the fullness of those important experiences that are wrought with uncertainty: Love, belonging, trust, joy, and creativity to name a few.

    There were some things that needed to be said even if the person you were saying them to didn’t understand; words that must be released from their trapped place where their flapping to get out could cause internal damage.

    We rely upon the poets, the philosophers, and the playwrights to articulate what most of us can only feel, in joy or sorrow. They illuminate the thoughts for which we only grope; they give us the strength and balm we cannot find in ourselves. Whenever I feel my courage wavering, I rush to them. They give me the wisdom of acceptance, the will and resilience to push on.
    —Helen Hayes

    you ruin your life by
    desensitizing yourself. We are all afraid to say too much, to feel too deeply, to let people know what they mean to us. Caring is not synonymous with crazy. Expressing to someone how special they are to you will make you vulnerable. There is no denying that. However, that is nothing to be ashamed of. There is something breathtakingly beautiful in the moments of smaller magic that occur when you strip down and are honest with those who are important to you. Let that girl know that she inspires you. Tell your mother you love her in front of your friends. Express, express, express. Open yourself up, do not harden yourself to the world, and be bold in who, and how you love. There is courage in that.

    I honestly am scared of life. What I'm the most scared is that I won't leave a scar at all on this world. Perhaps, I might cause strangers to feel pity for the loss of life, but what good does that do me? I know I would leave a rather small mosquito sized imprint on this humongous world. I dont feel any comfort by this thought. & pity certainly does me no good. I might be too young to even be talking about death & afterlife, however that's all that's been in my mind. This lingering & taunting thought has filled my brain with questions & confusion. My reasoning is very logical. I mean who wants to be forgotten? I dont want to be another person in their tombstone left to become dust, & become a literal part of the world. I dont want the only reason for my death to be remembered is for creating the natural decomposition due to the rotting of my hollow bones. I want to leave a scar on this world. Perhaps, my goal in life should be to create a larger imprint or scar on this world. Maybe not a mosquito bite, however a orange indention in this world would fulfill my dreams. Maybe, my name won't be forgotten nor be allowed to be gone with the past. For all the dead deserve honor & to be remembered for we all have a story, none less important than the other.

    "Wow you're so shallow not to talk to her because you don't like how she dresses"
    Okay, first off, I'm the LAST person to judge someone on what they wear and how they express themselves.
    When I decide not to talk to someone it's because they've been rude to me or hurt me in some way and I'd rather not spend my limited time on this earth on people like that.
    No I don't apreciate how she dresses but for goodness sakes that's not why I don't like her.

    Music is so powerful to my ears, It's like every single moment of my life is expressed through this one strand
    that's called music,but the music I hear is the music of life expressed through emotions,and feelings that everything is gone;
    everything is no longer existing It's just life in a song.

    Drawing is pretty much the only way to express yourself freely without being told you can't do it.

    You cry yourself to sleep every night, headphones in your ears, music turned up loud, and think of every single bad memory in the past. You wake up every morning, get out of bed and go through your daily routine, wondering why you're still here. They treat you like dirt. You get kicked when you're down, pushed around, and you feel helpless. There comes a point in life where you realize tears can't change anything. At night, the waterworks don't come anymore. You just lay there with a blank expression on your face. You're so used to getting hurt, you don't know what to do anymore. There comes a point in your life when you realize that the only one you can depend on, is yourself.

    Don't ever use someone's past against them. You're just reminding them of the mistakes they made back then. If you watch their facial expression carefully, then you'll see the hurt in their eyes as they reminisce everything that happened. Never use emotion as a weapon, it strikes deeper than you can imagine.

    “Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion,
    but an escape from emotion; it is not the
    expression of personality, but an escape
    from personality. But, of course, only
    those who have personality and emotions
    know what it means to want to escape
    from these things." .
    -T. S. Eliot
