It doesn’t make sense to call ourselves ugly, because we don’t really see ourselves. We don’t watch ourselves sleeping in bed, curled up and silent with chests rising and falling with our own rhythm. We don’t see ourselves reading a book, eyes fluttering and glowing. You don’t see yourself looking at someone with love and care inside your heart. There’s no mirror in your way when you’re laughing and smiling and happiness is leaking out of you. You would know exactly how bright and beautiful you are if you saw yourself in the moments where you are truly yourself.
Never ignore a person who loves you, cares for you, and misses you. Because one day, you might wake up from your sleep and realize that you lost the moon while counting the stars.
Because maybe it’s dumb to look for signs from the universe. Maybe the universe has better things to do, and dear God, I hope it does. Do you know how many signs i’ve gotten that i should or shouldn’t be with someone? And where has it gotten me? Maybe there aren’t any signs. Maybe a locket is just a locket, and a chair is just a chair. Maybe we don’t have to give meaning to every little thing. Maybe we don’t need the universe to tell us what we really want — maybe we already know that deep down.
For those who don’t know the story behind this:
Before Maggie was born, Homer worked at the Nuclear Plant because he needed the money to pay for all the debt. Once Homer finally payed the debt, he quit his job to work at his dream job at the bowling alley. When he found out that Marge was pregnant with Maggie, he became depressed that he had to quit his job at the bowling alley because the salary couldn’t support them. He begged Mr. Burns for his old life back and put a plaque that reads “Don’t Forget: You’re Here Forever.” When Maggie was born, Homer instantly fell in love with her. When Lisa asked him where all of Maggie’s baby pictures went, he explains that he keeps it where he needs it the most.
