the next time anyone gives you shit for being inspired by something not conventionally considered inspirational, just remember that gandalf, one of the most wise and powerful figures in middle-earth, got his courage through bilbo baggins who liked books and handkerchiefs and didn’t know how to hold a sword
You are allowed to be happy while also being sick
It doesn’t make your illness, pain, or fatigue any less real
It doesn’t make your struggles any less valid
Don’t let anyone make you feel like you should have to hide or diminish or put an end to your happiness in order to prove something about your illness
IF THEY TRY THIS, THROW GLITTER AT THEM AND MAKE YOUR ESCAPE
20. Are you starting to realize anything?
I’m starting to realize that I can’t be there for people or serve what I love to the best of my ability if I don’t make myself a priority.
73. Have you ever cried because you were so happy?
Yes, definitely. But I basically cry whenever I feel any intense emotion. Positive or negative.
