god, I need grace and strength to make something of the total abject failure my life has become.
real talk right here. My soul aches and I get so fucking anxious and distraught all the time when I start to think about where I am in life. I can babel on all the time about how ‘your life is independent from societies expectations, etc’, but when I have to talk about my plans for the future I just feel the need to crawl into blankets and cry forever.
I had a really good day today and that was nice, but now I feel even more like a total waste.
I want to take a train away this summer and make friends who hurt like I do.

What makes a person beautiful in your eyes?
Okay, there are several things:
1. Passion — This could be limitless, but when a person is alive on the inside from their own fire I think that is really powerful. I think you can always tell when you meet these sort of people because it is in their voice, eyes, and soul. I like people that feel alive and live.
2. Intelligence — I could expand upon this for hours, but intelligence in an array of interests is really engaging and I have a lot of respect for the people that seek growth.
3. Kindness — I like people that have good sense and kindness within their hearts. It is really refreshing, and sadly seldom, to meet someone who has innate kindness that is evident in their character.
4. Bravery/strength — This is a big one. People that are brave or strong hands down will always have my respect. I hate passivity and fear wholeheartedly, and the people that have or work to eradicate that in their character are really beautiful to me. I only know a few truly brave people, but those are the ones that I look up to and fight for.
In culmination, I think these traits make a really outstandingly beautiful individual.

Do you trust strangers easily?
When I was younger I used be constantly chastised by my mother for being too trusting. These days it really depends; if someone is introduced to me through a mutual friend then I will be more welcoming. In contrast, if it is a random stranger then I’m a little more reluctant to trust them. This is a really limitless question, sorry! It also has a lot to do with the person too; I can usually pick out the people I would want to trust and be friends with.
