writing stall

There’s so much more to life than finding someone who will want you, or being sad over someone who doesn’t. There’s a lot of wonderful time to be spent discovering yourself without hoping someone will fall in love with you along the way, and it doesn't need to be painful or empty. You need to fill yourself up with love. Not anyone else. Become a whole being on your own. Go on adventures, fall asleep in the woods with friends, wander around the city at night, sit in a coffee shop on your own, write on bathroom stalls, leave notes in library books, dress up for yourself, give to others, smile a lot. Do all things with love, but don’t romanticize life like you can’t survive without it. Live for yourself and be happy on your own. It isn't any less beautiful, I promise.

//cherry// is blouses not quite tucked into skirts; pink lipstick; cursive writing on bathroom stalls; losing the lids for pens; lavender scented linen

//sylvia// is shrinking your jeans in the bathtub; not getting the eyeliner quite right; juice dripping from ripe peaches; curly hair after the rain; dark living rooms

//kathy// is sun and rain at the same time; rings on tables from cups of hot coffee; wearing flowers as jewellery; sunhats being carried away by the wind; split ends

//sandy// is the soft skin on your lower arm; music at dusk; pale blue; perfectly clear skies at night; wildflowers

//evie// is pulling the covers over your head; braiding your friend’s hair; playground swings at night; stealing your mother’s perfume; humming made-up tunes

I am literally in a bathroom stall writing this, but I need to make sure to remember it in all its gloriousness.

So I just walked into the Target bathroom and as I was heading for the back stall, a guy who was about my age stopped me by saying, “hey man I want to strongly encourage you to avoid the last stall. It was clogged and I tried to flush it… It really did not end optimally.”

Still bewildered by this stranger I say, “Oh damn thanks for that.”

He then says, “yeah and actually…” Before proceeding to slide down to his back on the dirty bathroom floor to reach up and lock the stall from the inside.

I then say, “oh well you’re a savior my friend.” To which this fucking mystery man says,

“Well I don’t know about that, just remember the devil was once an angel.

What the shit, this is either the hero this Target doesn’t deserve or he fucking murdered someone and hid them in that stall.

is this a waking nightmare?
was this a memory?
is it fate we’re here again?
was it always meant to be?

Who's happening to see this? [OOC]

// Hi there. I can’t say I’m coming back yet because I keep just almost getting to returning before turning back. So this is a hello, and maybe for me to get a rough idea of who’s still hanging around?

Eyes turn sideways like an attitude glass shattered,
Windows shut stalls where humans ignore truth
behind wall
walls
of overreacting personalities.

Mantra of the day.

I get a lot of younger girls message me (sometimes anonymous) asking if they would ever find love…

Sometimes I don’t really know what to say, but mostly I just wish they wouldn’t regard finding a person as a necessary milestone.

So here’s a quote from Emery Allen that helped me the way I hope it helps you too.

“There’s so much more to life than finding someone who will want you, or being sad over someone who doesn’t. There’s a lot of wonderful time to be spent discovering yourself without hoping someone will fall in love with you along the way, and it doesn’t need to be painful or empty. You need to fill yourself up with love. Not anyone else. Become a whole being on your own. Go on adventures, fall asleep in the woods with friends, wander around the city at night, sit in a coffee shop on your own, write on bathroom stalls, leave notes in library books, dress up for yourself, give to others, smile a lot. Do all things with love, but don’t romanticize love like you can’t survive without it. Live for yourself and be happy on your own. It isn’t any less beautiful, I promise.”
