thursday thoughts pt. 31



I feel like this in a way really describes me. I'm not lonely, even though my mum often worries about me being so. But belonging deeply to myself is something I'd say I am, and I think the sentiment is expressed so well in that expression. Also, Warsan Shire was yet another female writer that I first thought was male. It's funny when that happens. Sometimes I'm disappointed, sometimes delighted and sometimes just surprised. (What isn't funny is that I never or very rarely have thought that a male writer was female.)

Anyway, I still have an exam next week, but I'm back! (Maybe.)

I totally get this too! Sometimes you're your own best company.

I really love this. I don't think being lonely is such a bad thing.

Corinne said...

Oh this is so so so so so lovely. It describes me too. It's kind of sad but also is a bit empowering, in a sad way! I can't explain it.

An important thought, beautifully expressed. It's so possible to identify as a lover without having one; to love people and ideas and, truly, yourself. I've never read Warsan Shire, would you recommend her?

Love this quote! And I agree with the girl above in that being lonely isn't so much of a bad thing. I use to always try to hard to be sociable but I actually prefer my own company!

Taylor Bishop - i love that too, hen! words are so much more complex to just hold one emotion:-) x
