"Be good to people. Even the shitty ones. Let the assholes be assholes. You’ll sleep better."
"I need to see home in your eyes. I wanted to explain this. There are many people you may want to sleep with. There are many that you may find interesting, intelligent, funny, and sexy. But out of those, how many do you actually picture yourself coming home to when you’ve had a shitty day and don’t want to face tomorrow? How many of them are titanium safe? How many have the ability to create such a space that no matter what happens out there, you know when you get home everything’s gonna be okay. Not because they say so but because they make you feel it. There’s a difference between someone being supportive through dialogue and someone making you feel invincible / beautiful. Supportive on paper is not home. Home is a feeling. Home is someone that gives you tomorrow. Home isn’t where the heart is. Home is where they are. Yes, the pillow fights, ice cream and fries in bed, reading next to each other on a Friday night, pajamas and bedhead, knowing there is no one better for your children. But more than that, a trust so strong you prefer to be emotionally naked. To me, that’s “home”. There’s a magical wash that happens when you find someone that provides that kind of space. There’s no other word for it."
