I believe that every american should at least watch this monologue from The Newsroom
This is the realest shit I’ve ever seen.
…Writers remember everything…especially the hurts. Strip a writer to the buff, point to the scars, and he’ll tell you the story of each small one. From the big ones you get novels. A little talent is a nice thing to have if you want to be a writer, but the only real requirement is the ability to remember the story of every scar.
Art consists of the persistence of memory.
Childhood movies taught me the most important thing of all: parents aren’t always right and they don’t always know what’s best for you.
look how many notes this thing has
Another lesson in these movies is that if parents/authority figures actually listened to their kids, a lot of the drama that results from them forcing their expectations wouldn’t occur.
Never apologize for burning too brightly or collapsing into yourself every night. That is how galaxies are made.
Maybe a relationship is just two idiots who don’t know a damn thing except the fact that they’re willing to figure it out together.
just gonna say this: if someone has social anxiety and they ask you something akin to ‘are you mad at me’ or ‘do you hate me’, it isn’t because they don’t trust you, it’s because their brain literally tells them that all the time
it’s not a personal slight, it’s insecurity caused by mental illness
It’s clear that we were nothing.
I wish I hadn’t shown you the darkest parts of me.
