For me, one of the biggest draws of the Internet has always been how I can be alone and yet find connection with other people. I am an introvert. I can fake extroversion, but it is exhausting. I prefer quiet, even when I am happily around other people. I spend an inordinate amount of time in my head. Online, I can be in my head and with interesting people. I can be alone but feel less lonely. By Roxane Gay, "The Danger of Disclosure" (via creatingaquietmind)

 Imagine talking to your friend on the phone, telling her you’re swamped at work, having to do research/write articles/answer mails/whatnot…haven’t eaten and so and she comes over not only does she bring food, but she brings coffee(LOTS OF IT), and Haribo…dinosaur Haribo..can you believe it?! :D

 Okay, back to work…I’m just excited..and grateful…and actually surprised..

i wish more people said that being single is normal

and you’re not going to meet and marry someone

and that’s fine

and if marriage happens, it happens. and it’s not the next big ticket to check off in life’s checklist

because not everyone meets someone they want to marry. and that’s normal

you’re not broken or unfulfilled if you are single

"I’m afraid of everything. I’ve been reading psychology books to try to figure out why. Logically, I know everything is fine. I know that I’m only twenty, and I have so many blessings and advantages. Yet I’m afraid I haven’t accomplished enough yet. I’m afraid of the future. Afraid of getting older. Afraid of being alone. Afraid of having a child. And afraid of the dark. I’m really, really afraid of the dark."(Kiev, Ukraine)
