How weird it is to think I used to not know of your existence. I somehow lived my life without ever knowing you were a person. Once we met though, god I haven’t been able to get you out of my head since. It’s hard to imagine I used to be able to live my life without you consuming my head with thoughts. kmr (disastrous-heartache)

No matter what else people may steal from you, they will never be able to take away your knowledge. The world is changing. You must make your own life outside this home.
