You are not clingy, or needy, or silly for having needs for affection and affirmation and attention within a romantic relationship. Those needs aren’t an embarrassing outgrowth of your low-self esteem or depression or whatever messy emotional issues you may have going on, that’s just basic shit that people need from each other. We of course should not make our partners responsible for meeting all of our emotional needs – it’s not someone’s else’s job to make you happy.

jacobybolesbury asked: I'm now 70 pages into writing my first book and suddenly I've been overtaken by this huge fear that I am nowhere near good enough a writer to do this story justice. I am also struggling with capturing a character's personality in ink.
