along the way
I broke my own heart.
Dear past self,
When u cut off ur hair mom wont be that mad and you dont have to run away.

A culture fixated on female thinness is not an obsession about female beauty, it is an obsession about female obedience. Dieting is the most potent political sedative in women’s history.
If you want to kill yourself, kill what you don’t like. I had an old self that I killed. You can kill yourself too, but that doesn’t mean you got to stop living.
My pain was never beautiful or poetic. It was answering the phone mid breakdown and laughing like I was fine.
