Anna. 19. New York.
"You’ll meet her, she’s very pretty,
even though sometimes she’s sad for many days at a time. You’ll see, when she smiles, you’ll love her."
Sometimes you need to remind yourself that you were the one who carried you through the heartache. You are the one who sits with the cold body on the shower floor, and picks it up. You are the one who feeds it, who clothes it, who tucks it into bed, and you should be proud of that. Having the strength to take care of yourself when everyone around you is trying to bleed you dry, that is the strongest thing in the universe.
