truly alive

I want to have that ‘butterflies
in my stomach’ feeling
every morning as I wake up.

But I don’t want it to depend on
someone else. I want to have that
exhilarating, exciting feeling
just for waking up, realizing
I have another day to live.

I want to have that fresh, blissful
feeling because I am alive
& I am in love with life.

Frodo + character traits

Highly sensitive people are too often perceived as weaklings or damaged goods. To feel intensely is not a symptom of weakness, it is the trademark of the truly alive and compassionate. It is not the empath who is broken, it is society that has become dysfunctional and emotionally disabled. There is no shame in expressing your authentic feelings. Those who are at times described as being a ‘hot mess’ or having ‘too many issues’ are the very fabric of what keeps the dream alive for a more caring, humane world. Never be ashamed to let your tears shine a light in this world.

He was mad.” they say. “Through his death he was King again.”
“No.” you want to shout.
“He was an uncle, a brother, a son.
He never believed he was worthy; and yet he was more worthy than he ever knew.
He sang and laughed with his people, fought and bled by their side.
He sacrificed everything he had for them.
He gave us a new home and reclaimed the old.
Do not define him by a moment of weakness, but decades of strength.
Define him by his life, not his death.
Define him as warrior, as leader, as king.
And, as he was to me, a friend.

I understand why you need that fort.
I understand why you need that gold.
I understand why you need this island.
I understand it all because I was  t h e r e  the day our lives  e n d e d  and all of this  b e g a n .
But I have been devoted to you since that day.
I have been
loyal, and protective, and fucking committed  t o   y o u  since that day,
and I am asking you to come with me, so that I can save your life.
