I found the experience of falling in love or being in love was a death, a death of everything. You kind of watch yourself die in a wonderful way, and you experience for the briefest moment – if you see yourself for a moment through their eyes – everything you believed about yourself gone.

I wish I could show you,
When you are lonely or in darkness,
The astonishing Light
Of your own Being
I just really don’t understand the world’s concern with what I wear, or who I like. Or if I have any tattoos or piercing, or even what type of music I like. The whole point of us being on this world is to create diversity, and find others who are unlike us, yet like us at the same time. No one else’s life choices should have any type of control over your life. Only you do.
