“I freaked out on Brian the other night. I feel so…weak? Crazy? Psychotic? I dunno. Broken. I feel broken. It’s like I’ve broken him, too. ”
Jacinta Howard, Better Than Okay

“Everyone is always talking about how weak love makes them. How it deludes their senses, makes their vision cloudy, makes them soft and malleable. I don’t know a lot about it, but I don’t think any of those things are right. Love makes you strong. Love covers your weaknesses. Love fills all of the tiny cracks in you that would be imperceptible to anyone else. Love is there even when you think you don’t want it or need it. Love stays. Love endures. Love covers. Love chooses. Love isn’t weak at all. Love is strength. ”
Jacinta Howard

“You’re my thought in between thoughts.”
Jacinta Howard, Better Than Okay

“I’m not sad, but the boys who are looking for sad girls always find me. I’m not a girl anymore and I’m not sad anymore. You want me to be a tragic backdrop so that you can appear to be illuminated, so that people can say ‘Wow, isn't he so terribly brave to love a girl who is so obviously sad?’ You think I’ll be the dark sky so you can be the star? I’ll swallow you whole.”
Warsan Shire

“Men can’t use exclamation points in texts... it’s weird. We also don’t say [stuff] like ‘yay’.”
