#beautiful words
the first moment I realized what friendship was, I was fourteen. I was back from my first of many doctors appointments. I found a picture of twin lava lamps that lit up into brilliant colors when the other one was tapped. I showed the picture to my friend. “I’d buy this for us,” I say. “You’d always know when I was thinking of you.” I don’t want to be alone. “YES!” She said, laughing. “I would grab it at three am and you’d have to stare at it instead of sleeping! Everything would be purple and blue and you wouldn’t have a chance.”
“I haven’t been sleeping at three am,” I said. I had been lying awake, waiting for the panic attack.
“I know,” she said. “I know. That’s why I’d do it.”
we looked at each other. oh, I thought. oh. so that’s what it is. it’s lava lamps. it’s the darkness fading into blue and purple promises. it’s noticing. it’s love under the guise of annoyance.
I don’t want to be alone.
you aren’t. not anymore.

The deeper you heal, the higher you raise the bar on who has access to you. And, it's not out of arrogance, it's about protecting the peaceful, calm, drama-free life you've worked so hard to elevate. This new chapter requires you to be less accessible to any type of toxicity.

did you have no one to defend you?
or did you feel as though you were not
worth defending?

need one of those hugs that allow you to relax your muscles and feel the tension leave from your body before you press yourself further into their arms. one of those hugs that make you feel safe even if it’s just for that moment
