A couple of years ago, I was madly in love with a boy who wanted me to be more chill. My response was something to the effect of, “If you’re not intense, what’s the fucking point?” He eventually realized that passion is good and chill is empty. He grew to love me and my emotions (the dreaded feelings!). Now, we live together.
This post is beautiful and powerful and well-written and all things good in this world. Well done.
