Broken strings & Pretty things

The world, seen through a young girl's eyes.

You need to chase your desires.

Go after her. Don’t sit there and wait for her to call, go after her because that’s what you should do if you love someone, don’t wait for them to give you a sign because it might never come, don’t let people happen to you, don’t let me happen to you, or her, she’s not a  television show or tornado. There are people I might have loved had they gotten on the airplane or run down the street after me or called me up drunk at four in the morning because they need to tell me right now and because they cannot regret this and I always thought I’d be the only one doing crazy things for people who would never give enough of a fuck to do it back or to act like idiots or be entirely vulnerable and honest and making someone fall in love with you is easy and flying 3000 miles on four days notice because you can’t just sit there and do nothing and breathe into telephones is not everyone’s idea of love but it is the way I can recognize it because that is what I do. Go scream it and be with her in meaningful ways because that is beautiful and that is generous and that is what loving someone is, that is raw and that is unguarded, and that is all that is worth anything, really.

-Harvey Milk

Because, it’s the things that we don’t do which we most regret. The worst case scenario is that things just don’t work out.
But at least then you’ll know. At least then you’ll know that you tried.
At least you had faith in something and had the courage to chase it and find that it wasn’t meant to be, rather than letting it burn out and constantly wonder what could have been.

And the best case scenario? They feel the exact same way.
And you never look back.
