“When a man does not realise his kinship with the world, he lives in a prison–house whose walls are alien to him. When he meets the eternal spirit in all objects, then is he emancipated, for then he discovers the fullest significance of the world into which he is born; then he finds himself in perfect truth, and his harmony with the all is established.”—Rabindranath Tagore (via itsquoted)
I want one of those marriages where they’ve been married 20 years but are still crazy in love and still cuddle on the couch and kiss a lot. I want those kind of marriages that make my kids nauseous because how in love their parents are.
I've already had the "gay" conversation with my unborn son...
Son:I have something to tell you...
Me:Are you doing drugs?
Me:Did you kill someone?
Son:No, of course not!
Me:Have you been whoring yourself out and now you have an STD?
Son:NO! Mum, can you please listen?
Son:... I'm gay...
Me:Is that all? You sounded guilty! I was worried for a minute there!
Son:Wait, wait - that isn't a problem for you?
Son:That I'm gay...
Son:Why? Everyone else has a problem with it...
Me:*picks up big knife*
Son:MUM! Put the knife down! It's just that I see so many people get angry about it and stuff...
Me:Has anyone hurt you for it?
Son:Yes, but not much. Now can you please put the knife down?!
Me:Then they are horrible people who have no hearts. If you like guys - GREAT! That means you won't go around getting girls pregnant! But seriously, I know I raised you to the best of my ability and I know that you know yourself better than anyone else. If you are comfortable with the fact that you are gay, and you are comfortable enough with it to tell me, then I am perfectly fine with that. And I am proud of you. Being gay should not be a problem for you or anyone else.
Son:Thanks, Mum. So... can I bring my boyfriend round for dinner tomorrow?
Me:Of course you can! I'd love to meet him! But first we need to play some 'Assassin's Creed' so you can learn how to beat those fuckers who hurt you!
I’m sorry if I ever hurt you. I’m sorry if I ever made you mad. I’m sorry if I ever disappointed you. And I’m sorry I took the selfish route. But, I know that you’re somewhere out there waiting to be in my tummy. And when you’re finally alive, eyes wide open, chest breathing, moving hands…I swear to love you through thick and thin. I swear to love you even when I feel like you don’t deserve it. I swear to love you even if you hurt me. Because I know that I will have been doing my best to give you life and a good one. I also want you to know that you can always trust me…I want to be your mom and your best friend. We can talk endlessly about anything…and as long as you’re not doing things that are not making me proud…we’ll be ohkay. I’ll love you if you’re gay, straight, asexual, catholic, aethiest…. As long as I know that who you are doesn’t affect the way you feel about me…I’ll be proud of you. All I want for your life is that you are a successful, smart, and greatful person. I won’t always be here for you…so i will raise you to be independent and so you know that you are capable of doing things without me. I will pour all my love onto you because you are my creation.
But over everything I promise to give you a family.
Because I want you to know you’re loved by many. And you make many proud.
I don’t know you but I already love you…and I know you’ll make me proud.
