You don’t have to get a job that makes others feel comfortable about what they perceive as your success. You don’t have to explain what you plan to do with your life. You don’t have to justify your education by demonstrating its financial rewards. You don’t have to maintain an impeccable credit score. Anyone who expects you to do any of those things has no sense of history or economics or science or the arts.
You have to pay your own electric bill. You have to be kind. You have to give it all you got. You have to find people who love you truly and love them back with the same truth.
But that’s all.” —Sugar from her advice column on The Rumpus (via tenfold)Real talk (via stillmonnielicious)

Is it possible that so much can change within the blink of an eye? Without knowing of the coming disaster, with no time to prepare or take shelter. That quite literally, in one moment all is well and the next the roof is blown off the place we call home and we are once again reminded how fallible we are as human beings. How naked families are to one another, how deeply and tragically we are all connected to a moment.
And I am adrift today, wondering how long it was all separating at the fault line, how long did I just not see it? Have I reverted or is it the same old addiction induced craziness from our past? Come back to reminded us of just how broken we were. We are. Or is it telling us how far we had come?
