shoutout to every time i wanted 2 kill myself but i spent hours taking selfies to distract myself instead!!!!!!! there will be times you do not want to be the star of your own story but you are the star and it is important to be present or to try to be present, make evidence of you trying, it is not easy to try, it is not easy to exist, you do not move on, you move through, you break down the weight and despair into something tangible and you have to surround yourself in the evidence. you exist you exist you take up space! right where you are! i love the space i take up i love the space my friends take up, i miss the space my friends took up, it will never be filled, nobody can fill it. heavy weights. i will fight every time it gets hard because i know that beyond the stupid fucking grossness of depression there is a big big big endless fire of rage and love i have to share with the world i will not let it go out not ever not even by myself. i will fight every inch of the way and i will look back and i will be able to say i can’t believe i survived myself

THE NECESSITY OF APPEARING
IN YOUR OWN FACE



There are days when that is the last place
in the world where you want to be but you
have to be there, like a movie, because it
features you.

I think one of the greatest gifts writers can give each other is the act of simple witness. To say to each other: I believe you and I believe in you and I want you to keep on keeping on because that’s the only way. Write that story or poem or essay or novel or play or advice column that you feel compelled to write, no matter what the market says.

"As he watched Joe stand, blazing, on the fire escape, Sammy felt an ache in his chest that turned out to be, as so often occurs when memory and desire conjoin with a transient effect of weather, the pang of creation. The desire he felt, watching Joe, was unquestionably physical, but in the sense that Sammy wanted to inhabit the body of his cousin, not possess it. It was, in part, a longing—common enough among the inventors of heroes—to be someone else; to be more than the result of two hundred regimens and scenarios and self-improvement campaigns that always ran afoul of his perennial inability to locate an actual self to be improved. Joe Kavalier had an air of competence, of faith in his own abilities, that Sammy, by means of constant effort over the whole of his life, had finally learned only how to fake. 

At the same time, as he watched the reckless exercise of Joe’s long, cavalier frame, the display of strength for its own sake and for the love of display, the stirring of passion was inevitably shadowed, or fed, or entwined by the memory of his father. We have the idea that our hearts, once broken, scar over with an indestructible tissue that prevents their ever breaking again in quite the same place; but as Sammy watched Joe, he felt the heartbreak of that day in 1955 when the Mighty Molecule had gone away for good.”
