    Marah; your internet better come back!!! (I definitely missed your entry!)
    Britney; yours spoke to me so much!
    All of these, however, were AMAZING (as always)

    Yes Ananda! I’m going through those moments when at one moment it feels like you’re perfectly emotionally synchronised with your friends, and then they’ll say something and you realise how independent your experiences are of eachother; and then I want to say what you have written x

    Ananda that entry felt perfect. I wish I had written it!

    What I much prefer to “it gets better,” Ananda, is “this too shall pass.” It works for every situation, the good and the bad, it both comforts and confronts, sometimes it lulls you into waiting and sometimes it motivates change. What a great phrase to hear and to say to someone.
