    Earlier in the year, I talked to someone for the first time and they asked if I was supposed to be in ninth grade.

    This morning, a teacher in my school who has never taught me said, “Oh, what grade are you in? Ninth right? Or tenth?”

    Just now, a neighbor/family friend said to my mom, “How old is Rahma? Thirteen?”

    ..

    I am a sixteen year old entering my senior year in high school. ;_;

    Sadness gives depth. Happiness gives height. Sadness gives roots. Happiness gives branches. Happiness is like a tree going into the sky, and sadness is like the roots going down into the womb of the earth. Both are needed, and the higher a tree goes, the deeper it goes, simultaneously. The bigger the tree, the bigger will be its roots. In fact, it is always in proportion. That’s its balance.
    ― Osho Rajneesh (via perfect)
