note to self: i’ll be there for you, always

written june 6, 2021. Photo by Kristine Cinate on Unsplash I have always looked for myself in other people. I think the idea was that they would somehow hold the pieces of me that I felt were missing. That maybe, if I wrapped my identity up in theirs enough, we would somehow make a whole person. It's not healthy to live like this, but I did it anyway — burning through relationships and searching for something I couldn't quite name. It was never enough, not to be myself, but it was never enough to latch my identity to other people, either. I got close, several times — I thought I had reached the pinnacle of self discovery. I thought I had completed myself. But in the end, relying on other people to help build yourself is never a viable way to do things. It's only recently that I've started to become comfortable with the idea of being enough, as I am, on my own.

Excuse me while I burst into song...

I woke up with this song in my head this morning, and no matter how many times I hear it, I still love it. FM Static is one of my favorite bands, and this is one of my favorite songs. Ever.

{by ourselves}
Let's get back to the part
When things weren't like they are
And we were laughing on the last train home...
{the last train home}
