For years mental health professionals taught people that they could be psychologically healthy without social support, that “unless you love yourself, no one else will love you.”…The truth is, you cannot love yourself unless you have been loved and are loved. The capacity to love cannot be built in isolation

Jeg savner, at savne nærhed med et andet menneske
I wanna fucking kiss someone I actually have feelings for. no stupid pointless hookups that leave you lonely at night. I wanna kiss someone and wake up in their arms the next day. I wanna receive the love I give. I just want something real.
