“Rule 1: Don’t let someone be too important in your life.

so here was the plan, my plan, put off my shoes, feel the warmth of your carpet, take a sip of you and leave. with no looking back. but i didnt prepare for the butterflies riot. they closed the door and turn off the lights. offering me candies and all the sweets i could ever ask for. and now how am i supposed to leave when the choice is over bitterness?

“Oh my God, what if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written; or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It’s going to break your heart. Don’t let this happen.
