about: love

“Your words, your love hurts like the way you hurt yourself.”

My best friend is a wonderful musician. His songs are beautiful and layered and compelling and badass, and I’m excited for him to put out a message of hope and truth [among other things] for people. This is one of his lyrics, and I find myself singing this song of his and sharing his poignant statement with friends who need encouragement to take care of themselves. It fits in well with another one of my favorite quotes:

“You can only love others as much as you love yourself.”

So, take care of yourself, cos you’re the only one who has to live with you forever, and ideally it’d be peaceful. You deserve love, and you can’t offer others what you don’t have.
