Human nature leads us towards what we are familiar too. Sometimes we don’t realise that if we have lived a life of prolonged hardship, we gravitate towards hardship ourselves because it’s all we have ever known. Be conscious and aware of this, make an effort to break free of that. -Rosamund Conyngham #rgcwordsoflove
“Fear, I wish I had more words to add, but the word itself is so self explanatory. It seeps into the soil and then cramps the roots of every human being. It is so deeply implanted in each one of us, that we just can’t escape the emotion of being afraid. Sadly, our race has always appreciated the ones who never made an acquaintance with fear more than those who endured it. I have witnessed children teasing each other about being afraid and denying that they ever got frightened, but we need to understand that being afraid is nothing to be ashamed of, it’s very humanly, and it’s very justified, in fact it is what keeps us from doing wrong apart from the rare act of one’s inner conscience. What needs to be rewarded is the strength to endure fear and loneliness, the courage to stand against it like a shield is what needs to be seen as an inspiration. When fear strikes in, people often search for an escape, not knowing that endurance is the only way out. This is life. Everything new feels a bit uncomfortable, it’s an arena where you remain alert, and every movement, every sound, every fucking event grabs your attention, makes you doubtful, makes you have second thoughts, but what I’m talking about is staying, staying through it, and facing it all at once, I’m talking about searching for the big picture, and then living the lonely as if it’s beer. Life is slowly accepting change, moving ahead, discovering questions and searching answers. Don’t escape, face it, because it might turn out to be something that you need more than an exit. Success lies in valley that comes your way when you’ve crossed a huge mountain called fear, escapes and ignorance only keep you roaming, this is the time, face it, I’m with you.” -tw.

They say love begets love,
But how can we give to others
What we have not learned to give to ourselves?
We are not a bottomless well for the thirsty.
Look after yourself.
This lack of sustenance comes not from others' selfishness,
But from the barren lands of neglect
We abandoned ourselves in. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
At some point we have to come into terms
With the role that we play in our own misery.
The more we are filled, the more we can pour;
Self-love begets love.
Mentre inalo i resti della tempesta,
vedo corvi girare intorno
alla terra spoglia,
le mie mani vuote,
il mio cuore pieno
di lasciarti andare.
