And you tried to change, didn’t you? Closed your mouth more. Tried to be softer, prettier, less volatile, less awake… You can’t make homes out of human beings. Someone should have already told you that. And if he wants to leave, then let him leave. You are terrifying, and strange, and beautiful. Something not everyone knows how to love.
Warsan Shire, For Women Who Are Difficult To Love (via aurelle)
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.
It reallt touched me because that how I past my childhood, and I have the same situation this year.
This is all true.
I’m not a freak, but I’m being different because I’m not a monster like the israeli sociality of today.
I don’t usually do this, but every one who follows me, if you happen to see this, stop and watch it.
”If you can’t see anything beautiful about yourself, get a better mirror. Look a little closer. Stare a little longer.”
This is beautiful. The whole thing.
Shane Koyczan is a fucking legend. I was lucky enough to see one of his shows and he brought me to tears with each poem. But he was also so funny and found beauty in everything. Definite hero.
This whole video hits me hard. I was told I was ugly, I am constantly afraid no one is ever going to fall in love with me, I’ve been told to “get over” my father’s death, I’ve been called names the majority of my life. This video hits too hard, but it’s so beautiful.
This is so incredible. The artistry from the poem and illustration is absolutely magnificent. It touches your soul. Everyone on tumblr should watch this and spread it like wildfire.
