Elite/upper-middle class Pakistanis who insist that “dictatorship is better” make me want to bury my head in the earth and come out only when this delusion is over. Which is never. So hello, noise-blocking soil.

“The world’s definitions are one thing and the life one actually lives is quite another. One cannot allow oneself, nor one’s family, friends, or lovers – to say nothing of one’s children – to live according to the world’s definitions: one must find a way, perpetually, to be stronger and better than that.”
- Novelist, essayist, playwright, poet, and social critic James Baldwin

You are so good. So good, you’re always feeling so much. And sometimes it feels like you’re gonna bust wide open from all the feeling, don’t it? People like you are the best in the world, but you sure do suffer for it.
