My advice for girls who are waiting for their Prince Charming is to be open for anything. Be open to new experiences, be open to the idea that it may take longer than you want, but if you’re open to meeting new people and new adventures, then love will come along.

do you ever get a weird crush on someone that’s not even attractive but you’re just attracted to them and you don’t know why

Tragedy is a form of drama based on human suffering that invokes in its audience an accompanying catharsis or pleasure in the viewing. While many cultures have developed forms that provoke this paradoxical response, the term tragedy often refers to a specific tradition of drama that has played a unique and important role historically in the self-definition of Western civilization. That tradition has been multiple and discontinuous, yet the term has often been used to invoke a powerful effect of cultural identity and historical continuity.

From its obscure origins in the theatre of ancient Greece 2,500 years ago, from which there survives only a fraction of the work of AeschylusSophocles and Euripides, through its singular articulations in the works of ShakespeareLope de VegaRacine, and Schiller, to the more recent naturalistic tragedy of Strindberg,Beckett's modernist meditations on death, loss and suffering, and Müller’s postmodernist reworkings of the tragic canon, tragedy has remained an important site of cultural experimentation, negotiation, struggle, and change.

there are two types of heartbreak:

there’s the kind
you long for
but would never admit it:
the bitter-sweet love
when you indulge
in suffering
caused by imaginary scenarios
that only sound fascinating
in your head;
you wallow in melancholy
like you were tasting
fine wine

and then there’s

the kind you never want
to experience
when your heart feels
like an air balloon
full of black holes
and little by little
you lose
all the air
from your lungs
the only thing
that remains
is the aching emptiness
heavier than the world
and swallowing you
till there’s nothing

trying to find yours.

No matter how good things are, there will always be solitary nights you spend in your bedroom, in a car, or in a party full of your closest friends when it feels like the walls are caving in.
