“You don’t measure love in time. You measure love in transformation. Sometimes the longest connections yield very little growth, while the briefest of encounters change everything. The heart doesn’t wear a watch - it’s timeless. It doesn’t care how long you know someone. It doesn’t care if you had a 40 year anniversary if there is no juice in the connection. What the heart cares about is resonance. Resonance that opens it, resonance that enlivens it, resonance that calls it home. And when it finds it, the transformation begins…”
"When we were in college, senior year, we had this tradition - Beth and Tucker and me and Jesse would meet, come rain or shine, every Sunday at the Bishop. And there was always something there with these two, even though they were just friends. Just, like, an ease that they had with each other. They are perfect. At last, love wins.
Beth and Tucker, you guys are lucky, so lucky to be best friends. Work hard at that. And respect that.”
“I think what also helped is that before I even met her I was such a huge fan of hers, and I thought she was so enormously talented. So for me, I look at it as someone who gets to be behind the scenes of all this incredible work that she does. She is an inspiration to me in every single way. She is just so tough and so classy and dedicated in every way, and so good at what she does. And I just watch, in awe of everything. And for me, we don’t really overlap with our decisions or our choices.
There’s definitely that conversation at one point down the line where, “Do you think I should do this movie?” or something like that, but always after she’s had a huge process for herself reading the script, re-reading the script, meeting the director, talking to her agents, and then all of a sudden she will ask, “What do you think? Because I think I’m going to do it.” Only when it becomes “I think I’m gonna do it” does it become a discussion, and I am just lucky to be there. So I support her in every single way. And of course I love that she loves what she does.
Where it becomes an enormous help and a really, really special thing is, I think if I was married to someone else in another business or something it would be really exciting because it would kind of be this cool thing like, “We’re in two totally different worlds.” And that’s exciting. But to me personally, that would be devastating. So to me, to have someone who I can come home to at 2:00 in the morning because we shot all night and know exactly what that is and not have to have a conversation, or you audition for something and the week while you’re waiting you might be a little weird and a little off, they know exactly what you’re going through, no questions asked. And it’s phenomenal. And then to get a role, either one of us, the first thing we do is go out to have a drink and celebrate. It’s just awesome. You know what I mean? It’s just like you speak the same language and it all makes sense. She helps it make sense, which is really, really awesome.
She’s the most grounded, down to earth person and yet she’s doing the same things I’m doing at a much higher level. It’s just so fantastic and I’m just so lucky to be with her for every reason, but that reason in particular is a good one.”

“We live in an age where we feel guilt whenever we have to cut someone off but the reality is that some relationships do need to die, some people do need to be unfollowed and defriended. We aren’t meant to be this tethered to the people in our past. The Internet mandates that we don’t burn bridges and keep everyone around like relics but those expectations are unrealistic and unhealthy. Simply put, we don’t need to know what everyone else is up to. We’re allowed to be choosy about who we surround ourselves with online and in real life, even if it might hurt people’s feelings.”

idk man it just makes me so so so sad when you’re watching a cutiepie talk about their passion like when they light up and start bubbling over with words and then all of a sudden they stop themselves and say stuff like “sorry, i know this is boring” or “sorry i just got excited”
like you know somewhere in their life someone they respected told them “shut up nobody cares” and ever since they can’t talk about their favorite things without apologizing every 5 seconds
