If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place.

I’m just going to read poetry about broken hearts, listen to Daughter and Stars while drinking a ton of coffee to get rid of this feeling. Today. It was today.

Some women are
lost in the fire.
Some women are
built from it.

We live in an age where we feel guilt whenever we have to cut someone off but the reality is that some relationships do need to die, some people do need to be un-followed and de-friended. We aren’t meant to be this tethered to the people in our past. The Internet mandates that we don’t burn bridges and keep everyone around like relics but those expectations are unrealistic and unhealthy. Simply put, we don’t need to know what everyone else is up to. We’re allowed to be choosy about who we surround ourselves with online and in real life, even if it might hurt people’s feelings.

If they don’t need you, it’s okay. You do not live for other people.

When you’re traveling, you are what you are, right there and then. People don’t have your past to hold against you. No yesterdays on the road.
