"Right before you head out running, it can be hard to remember exactly why you’re doing it. You often have to override a nagging sense of futility, lacing up your shoes, telling yourslef that no matter how unlikely it seems right now, after you finish you will be glad you went. It’s only afterward that it makes sense, although even then it’s hard to rationalize why. You just feel right. After a run, you feel at one with the world, as though some unspecified, innate need has been fulfilled."

i think i am much more of a person than i was a year or two ago, but i haven’t been able to find a way to put that personness into something tangible or writing or anything so to me it just doesn’t exist even though when i think about it i know it does exist and that i have grown it just doesn’t seem that way and i wish i had grown bigger instead of growing in
This is beautiful. And on the topic of sleepovers and kids getting stuck in uncomfortable situations: My mom and I had a code, ever since my first sleepover. I would always call home to say goodnight, and if I asked “How is the cat doing?”, it meant that I wasn’t comfortable and I wanted her to pick me up. I did use this code a few times, and whenever I did, my mom came up with the excuses for me. I was never stuck at a sleepover I didn’t want to be at - and as a child with anxiety and social phobia, this was a great system.

i think i’m able to derive happiness from small things pretty well, the problem is that i derive a lot of other emotions from small things at the same time, most of them not happiness
