Dear Cutie-Pie,
Recently, your mother and I were searching for an answer on Google. Halfway through entering the question, Google returned a list of the most popular searches in the world. Perched at the top of the list was “How to keep him interested.”
It startled me. I scanned several of the countless articles about how to be sexy and sexual, when to bring him a beer versus a sandwich, and the ways to make him feel smart and superior.
And I got angry.
Little One, it is not, has never been, and never will be your job to “keep him interested.”
Little One, your only task is to know deeply in your soul—in that unshakeable place that isn’t rattled by rejection and loss and ego—that you are worthy of interest. (If you can remember that everyone else is worthy of interest also, the battle of your life will be mostly won. But that is a letter for another day.)
If you can trust your worth in this way, you will be attractive in the most important sense of the word: you will attract a boy who is both capable of interest and who wants to spend his one life investing all of his interest in you.
Little One, I want to tell you about the boy who doesn’t need to be keptinterested, because he knows you are interesting:
I don’t care if he puts his elbows on the dinner table—as long as he puts his eyes on the way your nose scrunches when you smile. And then can’t stop looking.
I don’t care if he can’t play a bit of golf with me—as long as he can play with the children you give him and revel in all the glorious and frustrating ways they are just like you.
I don’t care if he doesn’t follow his wallet—as long as he follows his heart and it always leads him back to you.
I don’t care if he is strong—as long as he gives you the space to exercise the strength that is in your heart.
I couldn’t care less how he votes—as long as he wakes up every morning and daily elects you to a place of honor in your home and a place of reverence in his heart.
I don’t care about the color of his skin—as long as he paints the canvas of your lives with brushstrokes of patience, and sacrifice, and vulnerability, and tenderness.
I don’t care if he was raised in this religion or that religion or no religion—as long as he was raised to value the sacred and to know every moment of life, and every moment of life with you, is deeply sacred.
In the end, Little One, if you stumble across a man like that and he and I have nothing else in common, we will have the most important thing in common:
You.
Because in the end, Little One, the only thing you should have to do to “keep him interested” is to be you.
Your eternally interested guy,
Daddy
Happy International Women’s Day

as far as i concerned, shaw was a punk. cause you know what? tragedies happen. what are you gonna do, give up? quit? no, i realize now that when your heart breaks, you got to fight like hell to make sure you’re still alive. because you are. and that pain you feel? that’s life. the confusion and fear? that’s there to remind you, that somewhere out there is something better, and that something is worth fighting for.

get to know me meme: (3/5) male characters - pacey witter

every day, we, the students of capeside, come to a place where you guys are in charge. you tell us when to arrive, when to leave, when to move rooms, when to eat. you tell us when we’re doing well, when we need to be doing better and we never ever question it because we’re afraid to. to question it is to go against the belief that the entire system is built upon, the belief that you guys know what’s right, and i’m not afraid to tell you that what happened in that classroom yesterday was not right. to make a student cry, to embarrass him, to strip of him of his dignity in front of the entire class is not right. while i do respect the system i do not respect men like you, mr. peterson. i don’t, i can’t, and i never will.
