“Some periods of our growth are so confusing that we don’t even recognize that growth is happening. We may feel hostile or angry or weepy and hysterical, or we may feel depressed. It would never occur to us, unless we stumbled on a book or a person who explained to us, that we in fact in the process of change, of actually becoming larger, spiritually, than we were before. Whenever we grow, we tend to feel it, as a young seed must feel the weight and inertia of the earth as it seeks to break out of its shell on its way to becoming a plant. Often the feeling is anything but pleasant. But what is most unpleasant is the not knowing what is happening[…]Those long periods when something inside ourselves seems to be waiting, holding its breath, unsure about what the next step should be, eventually become the periods we wait for, for it is in those periods that we realize that we are being prepared for the next phase of our life and that, in all probability, a new level of the personality is about to be revealed.” — Alice Walker

If you had a cousin that was your best friend and they introduced you to people who you became close with, but your cousin and those people got into different ugly fights and aren’t friends anymore, and your cousin said that they didn’t want you to be friends with their ex-friends anymore, would you? Would it be disloyal to remain friends with those people and even hang out with them and take vacations with them?
I have so much that I wanna do. I wanna go back to school, I wanna go on vacation, I wanna reach new fitness goals and I want to save enough to get my own apartment. So much that I wanna do, so little time to do it.
idk why introverts have a reputation of being quiet and shy people who’d rather be alone. have you ever been friends with an introvert who’s decided you’re worth their time? we turn into the clingiest, most needy pieces of shit on the planet because there’s so few people we actually can stand
