for me it was mostly confusing and i didn’t know what was happening most of the time and i was angry that a person was making me feel things to a degree i had never experienced. for the most part i was used to being a calm and composed person and i usually didn’t let people get to me, but he got to me and it made me angry because i didn’t know why and i felt like i wasn’t in control of my emotions anymore but i guess that was just because i cared so much when i was used to caring only a moderate amount with other people.
when you are falling in love everything is amplified. the good things and the bad things. falling in love is liberating and there were times i felt like i could float on nothing but the release of his breath as he told me all his favorite things about me. but it can become a cage too if you don’t watch yourself. and it was terrifying to open myself up to him but once i started, it was like i couldn’t stop because he wanted more and even though it scared the hell out of me i still did it because it’s addicting to be wanted and there was this part of me that wanted to tell him everything.
so in describing falling in love we have: anger, frustration, loss of control, caring more than you are used to, liberation, lightness, scariness, terrifyingness, and addiction
The best part of the video may be when Jackson addresses the comments she’s heard about her daughter and sets the record straight about statements like you “wanted a girl so you turned your child into one” and “kids have no idea what they want or who they are — my kids wants to be a dog, should I let him?”
Chills down my whole body. This is how parents should react.
oh Jesus, what a loving parent
