„all the glamour and the trauma and the fuckin melodrama“ is a quote from Lorde’s latest album with the same name as this post that I have listened to a lot lately. I remember that it wasn’t always easy growing up not understanding how you can feel like you want to smile and cry at the same time. but I have learnt that there is power within accepting that life isn’t always smiles and happiness and that you actually start appreciating and caring more about the happy moments when you also take your time to let the tears take over for a minute. it doesn’t mean that there’s something wrong with you but that you are human. I don’t want to tell you that I am a sad person but I am tired of being told to always be happy when I know that I’ll be happier on my own terms and when there’s a certain beauty about melancholy. you will maybe never meet me when I am sad when you aren’t one of my closest friends but you might hear it in my songs or see it in photography of me.
