“I love my naked body like few other things in the world. It is mine, to do with as I please. It carries me through this life and has allowed me many things I didn’t expect. It changes and morphs into new versions of itself and I love all of them. I decorate her with tattoos and take her out dancing. I could never be ashamed or embarrassed of her…I’m not exposed or exploited when I am naked. That would be applying someone else’s expectations onto my body…When I am naked I am not brave or vulnerable or there for you. When I am naked, I am divine.”

“The best thing I’ve figured out is to just let things get really awful and wait for the joke. There’s always a joke lurking in the darkest shit. That’s how we forgive ourselves.”

Yesterday I was walking home and this thought popped into my head that one day I’ll kill myself. And I don’t mean I want to right now or at that moment. I didn’t. I don’t. Sure, yesterday day was long and a bit frustrating, but really nothing bad, days are like that. But there it was, that thought. The reminder that no matter how many years and thousands of miles of distance I have maybe I won’t ever really be okay. And that thought scares me.

I fall in love with strangers on public transit so often. I like how this song captures that feeling.
