So I’m moving into a new apartment, and I was told that the room had been damaged, but nothing could have prepared me for the fact that someone had carved Li Shang’s head out of the bathroom door and written “We must defeat the Huns!” on it.
“I think she’s special. She doesn’t need anyone. Like that’s the thing. Even if we were together, she wouldn’t really belong to me. She doesn’t belong to anything. She’s off in her own world…”—Childish Gambino (via heyitsmayra) (via yungella)
I found myself standing in the chilly wind and August rain, my eyes staring into the pinpricks of city lights that dot the mountainside. My phone is still warm from my tight grip just moments ago. I glanced at the time and forced myself to finally get some rest.
Most of the time, it is the hardest word to say, even harder to hear, but tonight it rolled off my tongue so easily. Tonight, I felt elated, like the wind can blow me away any moment. I felt - there is no other word for it - free.
Five years. Five whole years of keeping the secret. Five whole years of hiding myself, of feeling afraid and lost. Tonight, those five years ended. Our conversation ended at goodbye but it is good to know that our friendship didn’t. Midnight signaled a new chapter for me, a chapter I was afraid would not contain you, but I’m happy it still will.
I will be forever grateful for having met a person like you. As you said, friendship is a relationship no lesser than any other relationship, and I am now believing that truth because of you. Thank you for showing me what a real friend is and for teaching me how to be one.
It took me forever to reach this moment and I’m glad I finally got here. It is done and over with, but another challenge has been set before me.
So, I pray that courage will not leave me for now, because there is still a lot of work to do.
