I came across your blog looking for a picture that's said "stay golden" while reading The Outsiders and I can't thank S.E. Hinton enough because then I wouldn't have came across your blog. I've read every single post on here. You have such a beautiful way with words. I've never seen someone give such honest advise to strangers. You've made me cry numerous times and sometimes I feel dumb for crying but I realize how much I can relate to your posts.

Thank you so much! 

It’s never even occurred to me how people can find my blog! I really love the way you found it. Thank you for taking the time to read my posts. I kinda assume that most people just scroll through the photos, which is fine too, I like to think my photos tell a story of their own as well. I’m glad you can relate to my posts. Might be hard to believe but at one point I was completely against writing publicly, let alone answering questions for strangers.. but getting messages like this really helped me to open up. Realizing that people could relate to me and what I have to say has truly changed my life. And as much as I appreciate being thanked for sharing, I can’t thank people like you enough for sharing as well. Every time someone like you shares your experience with me - it makes it that much easier for me to keep writing. 

all the best! xoxo

Letting go is hard.. but starting over is even harder. Just begin, the rest is easy.

All parents damage their children. It cannot be helped. Youth, like pristine glass, absorbs the prints of its handlers. Some parents smudge, others crack, a few shatter childhoods completely into jagged little pieces, beyond repair.

'And now I’m looking at you,' he said, 'and you’re asking me if I still want you, as if I could stop loving you. As if I would want to give up the thing that makes me stronger than anything else ever has. I never dared give much of myself to anyone before, bits of myself, it took years to do it – but, since the first time I saw you, I have belonged to you completely. I still do. If you want me.
