Maybe we feel empty because
we leave pieces of ourselves
in everything we used to love.

Dead people receive more flowers than the living ones because the regret is stronger than gratitude.

“I am surrounded by people yet i am so fucking lonely because none of them are you.”

— Too drunk to remember the date: Yet I still remember how your fucking skin felt

“I loved you so fucking much, why the fuck couldn’t you see that?”

“Loving you was walking on broken glass. At first we glittered in the moonlight but then my feet wept red.”

“That day changed me. Whether or not it was real, it still fucking changed me.”

" Attract what you expect, Reflect what you desire, Become what you respect, Mirror what you admire. // " Just don’t give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong. " // " Be positive, patient and persistent. "

" Try to love yourself as much as you want someone else to. "

" I said never apologize for how you feel. No one can control how they feel. The sun doesn’t apologize for being the sun. The rain doesn’t say sorry for falling. Feelings just are. "

" I hope you fall in love
With someone who always texts back and never lets 
You fall asleep thinking you’re
I hope you fall in love with someone
Who holds your hand during the scary parts of
Horror movies and burns
Cookies with you when you’re 
Too busy dancing around the
I hope you fall in love with
Someone who sees galaxies in your eyes
And hears music in your
I hope you fall in love with someone who
Tickles you and makes you smile
On hard days and on easy
But beyond all that I hope
You fall in love with someone
Who will never leave you behind
And who will never take you
For granted, someone who
Will stand by you when you’re
Right and stand by you
When you’re wrong,
Someone who has seen you at your worst
And has loved you 
I hope you fall in love
With someone who
Kisses you in the rain
And hugs you in the cold and
Wouldn’t have you any other

" You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage—pleasantly, smilingly, non-apologetically, to say “no” to other things. And the way you do that is by having a bigger “yes” burning inside. The enemy of the “best” is often the “good.” "

" The best way I can love you is by not losing myself in you, but growing with you. "

" The best kind of people are the ones that come into your life, and make you see the sun where you once saw clouds. The people that believe in you so much, you start to believe in you too. The people that love you, simply for being you. The once in a lifetime kind of people. "

" If you repeatedly criticize someone for liking something you don’t, they won’t stop liking it. They’ll stop liking you. "

" You’re my end and my beginning. "

" How fascinating it is that there are millions of people all over the world who are wide awake at 4 am missing someone. And there are millions of people sound asleep at 4 am, with no idea that they’re being missed. "

my talents include being able to sit on the toilet for 30 minutes being distracted by my phone

I let the words, “I think that’s one of the things I love most about him” slip out today and I have no regrets about it what so ever.

" I’m not where I need to be, but thank god I’m not where I used to be. "

" Notice the people who are happy for your happiness, and sad for your sadness. They’re the ones who deserve special places in your heart. "

" And then I felt sad because I realized that once people are broken in certain ways, they can’t ever be fixed, and this is something that nobody tells you when you are young and it never fails to surprise you as you grow older and you see the people in your life break one by one. You wonder when your turn is going to be, or if it’s already happened. "

" I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good. "

Lana Del Rey songs make me feel sad and nostalgic about things that haven’t happened to me

I love when you become so close with someone that you can see parts of each other in one another and you begin to say the same things and steal lines from one another and have a similar sense of humor and can exchange an inside joke with just a glance you don’t even have to talk because you have such a strong connection with them and you can sit in comfortable silence but also talk for hours it’s really hard to find that kind of compatibility

If someone tells you to listen to a song, listen to it.  It may be the worst song you have ever heard but they wanted to share it with you.  That is really special.  If it makes them feel a certain way and they are so adamant about you hearing it, take 5 minutes to hear it.  It shows a lot about someone.

" i promise that someday
i’ll buy you a place 
where you can say “what a nice view”
and i’ll agree 
while looking straight at you "

" …because people who talk about their dreams are actually trying to tell you things about themselves they’d never admit in normal conversation. It’s a way for people to be honest without telling the truth. "

 I show affection for my pets by holding them against me and whispering I love you repeatedly as they struggle to escape from my arms

" You’re lying next to me. 
And I’m half asleep, 
wondering what I did 
to deserve this moment – 
to deserve you. 
And while you’re here, 
breathing easily, 
all I can think about 
is what I can do tomorrow 
to be better for you 
than I was today. "

never give up on your dreams
keep sleeping

" I laid with my back towards him, running my fingers against his hand. It didn’t feel real. This beautiful, charming, amazing person wanting something like me? I wasn’t ready for this. We all know it, you see that one boy you wish to have one day. It sparked in my mind, that this was the one I wanted and for some reason he wanted me back. "

" Go into the arts. I’m not kidding. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an an enormous reward. You will have created something. "

oh my god you don’t understand how much i want to kiss you
or watch movies with you
or fall asleep with you
or drink coffee with you
or cuddle with you
or hold your hand
or go to amusement parks with you
or watch concerts with you 
or bake with you
i want to do everything with you 

" Forgive. Forget. Fake it. Chin up. Wear lipstick, make lists, make sure your voicemail isn’t full. Mix protein shakes, send timely thank you notes, sip drinks more slowly, stare at adults’ eyebrows, smile without dimples, develop perfect posture. Be gracious, be kind, eliminate self-pity. Look in the mirror and shift your internal monologue from ‘How do I look?’ to ‘This is my face,’ from ‘What the hell am I doing?’ to ‘This is my life.’ Capitalize your emails, read the news, walk briskly, stay focused, and never, ever let on that you are somewhat lost and sometimes lonely and so completely confused (and would someone please just let me know what it is I’m supposed to do next, where exactly I’m supposed to go–). Just keep going. Go, and do not stop. "

" We can’t jump off bridges anymore because our iPhones will get ruined. We can’t take skinny dips in the ocean, because there’s no service on the beach and adventures aren’t real unless they’re on Instagram. Technology has doomed the spontaneity of adventure and we’re helping destroy it every time we Google, check-in, and hashtag. "

" Having a soft heart in a cruel world is courage, not weakness. "

" I don’t need someone that sees what’s good about me. I need someone that sees the bad and still wants me. "

" I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles. "

I will not settle
for bits and pieces of you.
I want all of you.

hearing yourself sing in the shower and wondering why the hell you haven’t made an album yet

did you ever become friends with someone so beautiful?  and then they started telling you about the douchebags in their lives that did horrible things to them, like cheat and lie. and the only thing running through your mind is “who would ever want to hurt someone like you?”

" The single greatest thing about love, in my experience, is the way it is doomed to pain and loss from its onset. Whether it is the spouse that outlives their lover, or loses them to another, there is no escaping that most solemn of inevitabilities. That two people can commit themselves to all this sadness and heartache in the name of such brief happiness, the warm touch of familiar skin, the unrivalled pleasantness in waking up beside the same person you spent the entire night with in your dreams, is all the proof I need that insanity exists, and it is fucking beautiful. "

life hack: remember to compliment people on qualities other than their looks. remind them of their kindness, thoughtfulness, and intelligence. tell them about how powerful and capable they are.

" Don’t kiss me during the fireworks. Kiss me after and give everyone else something to look at once chaos has passed. Don’t kiss me when you don’t know what else to say, kiss me when that’s all that needs to be said. Don’t kiss me at all the right times, kiss me mid sentence because my lips were moving, and you were jealous of the air because they weren’t moving on yours. Don’t read up on old fairy tales I don’t want a fairy tale. I want real and in the moment. So kiss me when your up in flames and about to burst. Kiss me when the tears are doing all the work. Kiss me hard and kiss me good. "

" Sleep with me. I couldn’t care less if were wearing five layers of clothes, or nothing at all. You belong in my bed. You deserve to feel the comfort of what I call ‘paradise’. 
Sleep with me. I’ll help you recreate the warmth that left your fingertips years ago. I want to hear you breathe easily, as the sound drowns out every single worry on my weary mind.
Sleep with me. I don’t mean to create such a sense urgency, but you deserve to feel safe, and I’ll do everything in my power to make that happen. "

" Never regret a day in your life: good days give happiness, bad days give experience, worst days give lessons, and best days give memories. "

 Only be with someone who you think you can learn from. They should be smarter than you in certain ways so that you can continue to grow and be interested. Above all, you should undoubtedly be proud that you are with them.

" Some people bring out the worst in you, others bring out the best, and then there are those remarkably rare, addictive ones who just bring out the most. Of everything. They make you feel so alive that you’d follow them straight into hell, just to keep getting your fix. "

Remember ladies: it doesn’t matter how you do on your finals, as long as your future husband is doing well on his.

" I’m a paradox. I want to be happy, but I think of things that make me sad. I’m lazy, yet I’m ambitious. I don’t like myself, but I also love who I am. I say I don’t care, but I really do. I crave attention, but reject it when it comes my way. I’m a conflicted contradiction. If I can’t figure myself out, there’s no way anyone else has. "

" There is nothing wrong with loving the crap out of everything. Negative people find their walls. So never apologize for your enthusiasm. Never. Ever. Never. "

" I shiver, thinking how easy it is to be totally wrong about people, to see one tiny part of them and confuse it for the whole. "

" If you don’t love yourself, you’ll always be chasing after people who don’t love you either. "

"idk what do you want to do choose"  

" The best portion of your life will be the small, nameless moments you spend smiling with someone who matters to you. "

" 1. If you like someone, wait.
2. Give lots of compliments, even if you’re shy. Everyone else is too.
3. Change. Get a haircut, try new perfume, get new sheets. Become better than you were before.
4. Eat healthier. Learn to cook something fancy.
5. Get up earlier and watch the sun come up.
6. Wear soft clothes, take a bath, drink something warm.
7. Meet someone new, even just a friend.
8. Become closer with your friends and your family. Call your mother. Cry with your best friend. Tell everyone how much you appreciate them.
9. Keep your room clean. Buy some candles. Let the natural light in. 
10. Make a list of reasons why you’ll be better off without them. Believe they are true, because they are. 
11. Listen to new music. 
12. Write everything you’re thinking and feeling. Write letters. Write happy letters, sad letters, and angry letters, even if you’re never going to send them.
13. It’s okay to be sad, but not forever. Sadness is not as beautiful as music makes it seem. Lack of sleep makes your eyes droopy, not deep. Wake up every morning and tell yourself you’re going to have a good day.
14. Go to the library. Don’t forget to look in the music section. 
15. Remove them from your life. Get rid of the things they gave you if they make you sad. They’re not worth it. You will never be happy if you continue to hold on to the things that make you sad.
16. Make new memories.
17. Try to find something to appreciate in everything you do or experience.
18. Being alone is okay, you don’t have to surround yourself with people. 
19. Become your own best friend. Buy yourself coffee and drink it alone in a cafe. Take your time. 
20. Learn to love every bit of yourself. "

                                                     the curtains.

                                               I want the only noise
                                                   to be my inhale
                                              replying to your exhale.
                                           I want to trace my fingers
                                           along every line and curve
                                                    of your back.
