Notes on love

By: Gabriela Yareliz

1] Friendship first is a solid foundation

I no longer wish to be loved childishly. I want to be loved with the strength and charm of maturity. I don’t want to be smothered by the fear of jealousy and insecurities. I don’t want a relationship based solely upon shutting the world out and locking each other in. I want to be somewhere where I can breathe. Where, even in the midst of a million people with a million heartbeats surrounding me, I can still know the sound or even play the tune, or nod my head to the rhythm of the one I call “home.” I want to call you home.

3] Chocolate or Flowers?
Camila Cabello from Fifth Harmony was asked: Chocolate or Flowers?
She responded: “You can’t eat flowers…!”

So many people are shut up tight inside themselves like boxes, yet they would open up, unfolding quite wonderfully, if only you were interested in them.
– Sylvia Plath
