Because it matters:
letting them down softly
sweating in bed
itching all over in public
taking stabs in the dark
speaking harshly about the world
loosely relating to people
bringing attention to yourself
nodding at animals
never finishing your drink
heated discussions with yourself
disappointing your friends
letting people pass you
not regretting your decisions today
People need to realize that there are days when you’re not in the mood to talk or interact with anyone.
Free Fall (Freier Fall) / 2013
the German answer to “Brokeback Mountain”
Because lying to your kids about sex helps nobody. Telling them that sex is “only between mommies and daddies” is a lie that leads to confused, hormone charged teenagers. Telling them that sex is “only something that happens when two people love each other very much” is a lie that causes hormone charged teenagers to confuse “love” with “lust,” or “obsession.” It leads to leaps of logic like, “If I have sex with them, we must be in love.” Or worse- “If I love them, I have to have sex with them.” And how many teenage tragedies are based on that misconception?
You don’t realize how alone you are until you’re staying up every night thinking about things you should never think of and you cant tell anybody because you have nobody to tell.
