Love. Now that’s a weird thing. Because love knows no name. And yet it knows each and every name. It has no form, and that’s why it can take any form it wants. Any form you can think of. And it knows no age, knows no colour, knows no gender […] And love? Love will always find the answer.

You may mess up, but you’re not a mess up.
You may make a mistake, but you are not a mistake.
You may screw up, but you are not a screw up.
You may fail, but you are not a failure.
You are not your downfalls.
Escape from the Spirit World: Avatar Yangchen (x)
#so many people still do not get this#the avatar is SUPPOSED to have attachments; the avatar MUST love others#and people talk about how aang ~never makes sacrifices~ but he loses SO MUCH#he sacrifices SO MUCH#he can never completely follow the spiritual teachings and guidance of his people. he cannot attain enlightenment#and he gains so much but he still loses that aspect of his culture and he’s THE LAST PERSON IN HIS CULTURE FOR SO LONG#and the show does talk about this. aang gives up power and he gives up total spiritual harmony#he chooses to love katara. he chooses to go to his friends and protect them.#zuko and aang’s storylines are deliberately designed as foils#zuko’s emotional quest is to find himself. aang’s emotional quest is to accept himself#zuko gives up physical trappings and physical power to gain spiritual strength and peace#while aang gives up spiritual power and enlightenment to gain the strength of attachments to other people#a sacrifice is still a sacrifice even if you gain other things#SORRY THAT IS A WEIRD TANGENT ANYWAY OK
But seriously I really wish we knew more about Avatar Yangchen
I’ve been reading a fic where Yangchen was feared by every nation but the Air Nomads cause she was so strict/ruthless. It’s good!
