“There are a few things in life so beautiful they hurt: swimming in the ocean while it rains, reading alone in empty libraries, the sea of stars that appear when you’re miles away from the neon lights of the city, bars after 2am, walking in the wilderness, all the phases of the moon, the things we do not know about the universe, and you. ”
I love the stydia fandom so much. Like, one picture of our otp standing next to each other is enough to get everyone excited and fangirling. We enjoy the small things in life and I think that’s beautiful.
“Don’t listen to those people who suggest you should be ‘over it’ by now. The people who squawk the loudest about such things have almost never had to get over anything. Or at least not anything that was genuinely, mind..soul-crushingly life altering.”
“A fascinating blend of memoir and self-help. Strayed is an eloquent storyteller, and her clear-eyed prose offers a bracing empathy absent from most self-help blather.” —Nora Krug, The Washington Post
A collection of gritty, honest, and raw essays on the meditations of love, heartbreak, experience and life, Cheryl Strayed’s Tiny Beautiful Things is far away from a Hallmark card. Revealed to be the anonymous figure, Sugary behind the former column at literary magazine The Rumpus, Tiny Beautiful Things is wise and compassionate. Tiny Beautiful Things is a collection from the best pieces of Sugar.Strayed is empathetic and logical. She never gives her readers advice with harsh judgements or without a parallel situation from her own experience.
She recognizes the power and strength it takes to love yourself. She is a fighter of the human soul. Some may even cal Strayed an amateur psychologists, which is why her insight into the human psyche is impressive and gentle. Her confessional, yet heartwarming approach is one the world should aim to obtain.
