Let Go

literaryjukebox:

"At some point in life the world’s beauty becomes enough. You don’t need to photograph, paint or even remember it.

It is enough. No record of it needs to be kept and you don’t need someone to share it with or tell it to.

When that happens — that letting go — you let go because you can.”

Toni Morrison (b. February 18, 1931) in Tar Baby.

Song: “Let Go” by Frou Frou

At heart, I have always been a coper, I’ve mostly been able to walk around with my wounds safely hidden, and I’ve always stored up my deep depressive episodes for the weeks off when there was time to have an abbreviated version of a complete breakdown. But in the end, I’d be able to get up and on with it, could always do what little must be done to scratch by.

Elizabeth Wurtzel, Prozac Nation (via ophidiophobic)
