HOW WE SEE OURSELVES

Tuesday, August 15, 2017


you know how when you watch a movie and you see a character doing something stupid 

and you just sit there moaning and screaming into your pillow; 

"STOP! No. That's not it! Do this!"


and you know why we can do that can't do that in our own lives, even tho we wish to? 

bc in the movies we get to see the opposite character and their thoughts. We get the advantage. Life isn't really like that

so don't beat yourself up so hard when you feel like you just did something stupid. It happens. You learn from crashing on the floor in a heap of jumbledness. at least, its best to try learning, that is. 


besides. Being perfectly put together is boring. 
Shake your hair and laugh bc today you messed up and tomorrow you probably will too 

there is loveliness in that

  2. *sniffs* Ah, so true. You bring out such beauty in your poems that I wouldn't necessarily normally think about. I know this was already said in the first comment, but I love the last two lines. I'm such a perfectionist, and I struggle so much with this. Just wow. I'm glad there's a comfort in being imperfect. Not that we try to do stuff wrong, just that everyone else struggles too. Another great poem, Julia. Keep writing, girl. You're amazing. <3
