mmMaria. Sixteen. Maryland. I love freckles, daisies, lilacs, and ice cream. "I go to the hills when my heart is lonely; I know I will hear what I've heard before. My heart will be blessed with the sound of music and I'll sing once more."
"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."
"You don’t need another human being to make your life complete, but let’s be honest. Having your wounds kissed by someone who doesn’t see them as disasters in your soul but cracks to put their love into is the most calming thing in this world."
