I have come to a decision that the world's problems are not my own. I don't have permission to go to pieces every time a tragedy occurs somewhere on this planet. This doesn't mean that I won't plant a tree. It just means that I won't fucking plant it because the world needs it. I... Continue Reading →
Today, someone asked me, "What do you do to be kind to yourself?"I had no answer.
I think it's a crime to smother and kill someone else's dreams. Every time dreams die, the world becomes a bleaker place. The punishment we get for it is the world we're living in.
