A strong female character is one who is defined by her own characteristics, history and personality, and not solely by the actions or needs of other characters.
#hi #i’m only going to inspire you finish a novel #i’m only going to be the star of that novel #i’m only going to ‘teach you how to live’ #you’re only going to fall so in love with me that a pursuit for my happiness will become more important than your own #you’re only going to be willing to do anything to supply me with comfort - ‘it wouldn’t to me’ #you’re only going to love me with tenderness and care simply and with no agenda #only reason being that you just can’t not #oh hey #i’m just going to love you for you #‘not in spite of who you are but because of it’ #you’re finally going to have someone who challenges you and cares about the same things you do #you won’t be defined by only a few less favourable traits; rather you’ll flourish and #we’ll be gloriously pretentious together in our passions for french cinema literature and art #you’ll find your ‘centre is all’ #and i’ll want more i’ll want you because even everything wouldn’t be enough #there will be no terms on how I feel for you no matter what you do you’ll ‘always’ have me #because ‘no it’s not awful it’s you it couldn’t be awful’ #and you’ll finally after the longest time understand that you deserve so much more than what your previous relationships have taught you #you’ll finally break out of the endless chuckandblair loophole you’ve been stuck in for so long #your heart will eventually belong to someone else; that someone being me
They leave. Because they should. Or they find someone else. And some of them— some of them forget me. I suppose in the end… they break my heart.
