Hey. Don’t just scroll past. Come back and watch this. You need it more than you know.
the time out of your day to watch this will not be wasted, I assure you.
By about the 2:00 I was sobbing.
I scrolled halfway past and then thought “okay i’ll see what it’s about”
Definitely the correct choice. Watch it.
They. Were. Wrong.
oh god the actual tears on my face
W R O N G.
I’m in tears…
Every time I watch this video, I’m in tears.
Cap ‘n Quote: Pride and Prejudice (2005)
Elizabeth’s spirits soon rising to playfulness again, she wanted Mr. Darcy to account for his having ever fallen in love with her. “How could you begin?” said she. “I can comprehend your going on charmingly, when you had once made a beginning; but what could set you off in the first place?”

don’t stop me now // queen
i’m a shooting star leaping through the sky
like a tiger defying the laws of gravity
i’m a racing car passing by like lady godiva
i’m gonna go, go, go
there’s no stopping me
tonight is just one of those nights where all i want is for someone to make me a cup of tea and snuggle me and offhandedly say i’m doing great
When you are lonely, remind yourself how awful it feels to fill this time with anything other than what you truly yearn for. You could go to his bed- nothing would stop you, you could go right now- but you wouldn’t feel any less alone while lying next to someone when that someone doesn’t love you like you deserve. He doesn’t know about the knot in the bottom of your stomach and he’ll fall asleep before it loosens.
When you are lonely, cultivate it. Cradle it. These moments feel like background noise but they are anything but. You are learning your way around yourself. You are drawing a map you will consult for the rest of your life. Ask yourself the hard things. How do you like your eggs cooked? Do you want to have children? How do you feel about global warming? When no one else is around, you can hear your own voice. Even if it is a gentle, quiet thing there are so many things you can learn from it. Take your time.
When you are lonely, light a candle that smells like home or maybe one that smells like pine trees you’ve never seen before. Kiss your forehead in the mirror and have a glass of wine. Write a poem. Or don’t.
When you are lonely, the universe is giving you space to be with yourself. Don’t waste it.
