1. Don’t be friends with people you have to water yourself down for.

2. Don’t give your mind to someone who doesn’t have one of their own

3. Don’t give your heart to someone who’s hands are not accustomed to carrying gold

4. Don’t long for their embrace if holding you isn’t muscle memory by now


i work at a gym largely frequented by older women, and today as one of them left after her workout she accidentally pulled the entire door handle off and just slowly looked at her bicep in horror as if she was terrified of her new strength. it was beautiful.
