EVER has a right to touch you if you don’t want to be touched.
Not your husband. Not your fiance. Not your boyfriend. Not your partner. Not your friends. Not even your own family.
You are a person and your body is your own. And it’s a privilege if you allow someone to touch it.
A god damn privilege that can be snatched up and you don’t owe anyone a reason but that it’s your body and only YOUR body.

You are gonna have people who are going to see the depth from which you approached a song. The fact that you put real emotions into it, and that that’s valuable, and that’s good, and that’s real. And then you’re gonna have people who are gonna say "Oh, you know, like, she just writes songs about her ex-boyfriends…."
Girls, romanticize yourselves. You are a queen. You are a warrior. You are an enchantress. You are a mermaid. You are a goddess. You are all of these things and more, you are the stuff of fairytales.
