Seventeen and Alive

Sarah. 21. I am engaged to my best friend. I'm generally alone and I generally like it.

I have to be better.

I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry

Yoooooo you need to get TF out of my dreams

Please be careful out there.

Keeping an arm’s length away from everyone isn’t strength. Keeping one foot out the door, ready to run away at all times, isn’t strength. Pushing people away isn’t strength. Never letting anyone in isn’t strength. Never letting your guard down, never being too vulnerable, too comfortable, isn’t strength. Hurting people before they have the chance to hurt you isn’t strength. It isn’t strength, it isn’t independence. It is weak, it is cowardly, and it is selfish.
