What if she was meant to be, or could have been, someone important in my life? I think that’s what scares me: the randomness of everything. That the people who could be important to you might just pass you by. Or you pass them by.
I think I fall in love a little bit with anyone who shows me their soul. This world is so guarded and fearful. I appreciate rawness so much.
Sometimes the answers are not there until we stand still and listen. But they are there and they are usually surrounded by love. You are too.
Be an encourager. The world has plenty of critics already.
my favourite kind of friendship is one where there’s a mutual understanding of the fact that we both have our own lives so we won’t be able to talk or hang out all the time but when we do talk or hang out it’s like picking up right where we left
If I can feel all this
there must be something
in the universe…
I can admire a female body without being sexually attracted to it. A man can admire a male body without being sexually attracted to it. When will people get this?
I find the best way to love someone is not to change them, but instead, help them reveal the greatest version of themselves.
Date someone who sleeps on your chest and snores in your ear. Date someone who’ll be your Friday night and your entire Saturday. Date someone who is proud of you. Date someone who only makes you cry of laughter. Date someone who isn’t afraid to love everything about you. Find someone who believes love is black and white; you either love someone or you don’t. There are so many mediocre things in life, love shouldn’t be one of them.
Now more than ever do I realize that I will never be content with a sedentary life, that I will always be haunted by thoughts of a sun-drenched elsewhere.
I knew I did from that first moment we talked.
It was… Not love at first sight. at first word exactly, not at all, but - familiarity. Like: oh, hello, it’s you. It’s going to be you.
Anytime you’re gonna grow, you’re gonna lose something. You’re losing what you’re hanging onto to keep safe. You’re losing habits that you’re comfortable with, you’re losing familiarity.
A book, too, can be a star, ‘explosive material, capable of stirring up fresh life endlessly,’ a living ﬁre to lighten the darkness, leading out into the expanding universe.
You seem real pretty and I ain’t talkin’ bout how you look, I’m talkin’ bout your vibe. Your vibe is pretty.
She quietly expected great things to happen to her, and no doubt that’s one of the reasons why they did.
7. you told me that you stay up late wondering about why the sum of all natural numbers could ever equal negative 1 over 12 and i know im not infinite in the grand scheme of things but i wish i could be to you.
Between love and hate, there's you.
What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the mornings, what you will do with your evenings, how you spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything.
I know it’s unfashionable, but I think there’s something worthwhile in asking someone to stay. In laying down your pride and saying, “you know what? my ego doesn’t matter anymore, because I’d rather lose an argument than lose you.” There is something in saying “I’ll do whatever it takes to keep you close and I won’t let go.”
If you love somebody so much that you’re willing to devote hours of your life every day to talk to them, to thinking about the things that they said, buying cute presents or making them food, or listening to entire albums that you know they love, is it really so difficult to swallow your pride and say “no, I can’t watch you leave. Stay. I want you to stay.” Is it really so impossible to cast aside your stubbornness; your, “leave if you want to, I won’t stand in your way” and replace it with honesty? Because if the truth is you want to beg, you want to cry, you want to say “goddamnit I have never ever felt this way about another person and I know if you leave you’ll leave behind an empty mess,” then that’s love, right?
Some people are meant to go. It doesn’t matter what you say, they’ll be on the next train out of town. But some people are waiting for you to say you care too much to let them leave in silence. And if you let them go make sure you do it consciously. Pride means nothing in the long run.
You need to ignore what everyone else is doing and achieving. – Your life is about breaking your own limits and outgrowing yourself to live YOUR best life. You are not in competition with anyone else; plan to outdo your past, not other people.
I find it really beautiful when someone prays for you without you knowing. I don’t think there’s any form of deeper and purer love.
The greatest courage is not the ability to retain and hide emotion, but instead to be able to shamelessly express it at a tipping point.
‘All of us are better when we’re loved.’
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.
We spoke endlessly about everything and nothing. Now, I cannot even remember the sound of your voice.
Imperfection is a form of freedom
Spend more time with people who bring out the best in you, not the stress in you.
Someday someone won’t be afraid of how much you love. They won’t stay on the shore; they’ll meet you in the depths.
there’s only two times in life, there’s now and there’s too late.
The flower doesn’t dream of the bee. It blossoms and the bee comes.
Why should you worry about the future? You don’t even know the present properly. Take care of the present and the future will take care of itself.
Sometimes you’re 23 and standing in the kitchen of your house making breakfast and brewing coffee and listening to music that for some reason is really getting to your heart. You’re just standing there thinking about going to work and picking up your dry cleaning. And also more exciting things like books you’re reading and trips you plan on taking and relationships that are springing into existence. Or fading from your memory, which is far less exciting. And suddenly you just don’t feel at home in your skin or in your house and you just want home but “Mom’s” probably wouldn’t feel like home anymore either. There used to be the comfort of a number in your phone and ears that listened everyday and arms that were never for anyone else, but just to calm you down when you started feeling trapped in a five-minute period where nostalgia is too much and thoughts of this person you are feel foreign. When you realize that you’ll never be this young again but this is the first time you’ve ever been this old. When you can’t remember how you got from sixteen to here and all the same feel like sixteen is just as much of a stranger to you now. The song is over. The coffee’s done. You’re going to breathe in and out. You’re going to be fine in about five minutes.
Don’t you get it? I would stay awake every single night of my entire life to make sure that bird inside your chest is still beating its wings.
My wants are simple: a job that I like and a guy whom I love.
If something burns your soul with purpose and desire, it’s your duty to be reduced to ashes by it. Any other form of existence will be yet another dull book in the library of life.
Don’t let the words and comments of others attack your self esteem. You’re on your own personal journey. It’s nothing to do with them.
Everyone you idolize wakes up scared to be themselves sometimes.
She was a ghost of a girl, hauntingly beautiful, wonderfully lost — breaking hearts and crying holy water tears.
If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.
Life went on without you. Of course, it did. Of course, it does. It was just an ending, they tell me, not the end.
One day, he’s going to know. He’ll know your birthday, your middle name, where you were born, your star sign, and your parents names. He’ll know how old you were when you learned to ride a bike, how your grandparents passed away, how many pets you had, and how much you hated going to school. He’ll know your eye colour, your scars, your freckles, your laugh lines and your birth marks. He’ll know your favourite book, movie, candy, food, pair of shoes, colour, and song. He’s going to know why you’re awake at 5am most nights, where you were when you realised you’d lost a good friend, why you picked up the razor and how you managed to put it down before things went too far. He’s going to know your phobias, your dreams, your fears, your wishes, and your worries. He’s going to know about your first heartbreak, your dream wedding, and your problems with your parents. He’ll know your strengths, weaknesses, laziness, energy, and your mixed emotions. He’s going to know about your love for mayonnaise, your dream of being famous when you were five, your need to quote any film you know all the way through, and your fear of growing older. He’ll know your bad habits, your mannerisms, your stroppy pout, your facial expressions, and your laugh like it’s his favourite song. The way you chew, drink, walk, sleep, fidget and kiss. He’s going to know that you’ve already picked out wedding flowers, baby names, tiles for the bathroom, bridesmaid dresses, and the colour of your bedroom walls. He’s going to know, get annoyed at and then accept that you leave clothes everywhere, take twenty minutes to order a Starbucks, have to organise your DVD’s alphabetically, and check your horoscope… just incase. He’ll know your McDonald’s order, how many sugars to put in your tea, how many scoops of ice cream you want, and that you need your sandwiches cut into triangles. He’s going to know how you feel without you telling him, that you need a wee from a look on your face, and that you’re crying without shedding tears. He’s going to know all of it. Everything. You, from top to bottom and inside out. From learning, from sharing, from listening, from watching. He’s going to know every single thing there is to know, and you know what else? He is still going to love you.
When you focus on your problems you’ll have problems. When you focus on the possibilities you’ll have more opportunities
Chase her. Chase her even when she’s already yours. That’s the only way you’ll be assured to never lose her.
Allow yourself to be a beginner. No one starts off being excellent.
Love makes your soul crawl out from its hiding place.
How dangerous,” she thought, “to finally have something worth losing.
The saddest part was realizing we could have made it work. If you were truly in love with me, you would have fought for me. But you didn’t, and that just means I loved you more than you loved me.
The soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts.
Dude, you just lost the girl who’s willing to love you forever. You just lost the girl who’s going to save you from your madness. You just lost the girl who will accept you for who you are. You just lost the girl who sees you as her knight. You just lost the girl who’s willing to give something up just for you. You just lost the girl who’s willing to turn your darkest nights into brighter tomorrows. You just lost the girl who’s willing to give you hope in the midst of your derangement. And lastly, you just lost the girl who loves you and terribly cares for you so much yet you decided to ignore her and find another girl who is not even willing to take a risk on you.
I am too intelligent, too demanding, and too resourceful for anyone to be able to take charge of me entirely. No one knows me or loves me completely. I have only myself
You don’t meet people by accident.
Forgive yourself for not having known better. You were doing the best you could. All you can do is go on from here.
Will you do something for me? Drive me away my home and take me to a tall hill. A hill that’s away from everything else but has a view of the city below. Let’s pack blankets and a picnic. I want us to lay under the stars and slow dance on the edge of the hill. I want us to tell each other stories and cuddle and gorge ourselves in tasty treats. I don’t want to think about anything else. Apart from all my pain and misery I want to feel free. Even if it’s just for one night.
I want to travel the world
Live for today
The state of your life is nothing more than a reflection of the state of your mind.
People seem to think embracing life means to jump off cliffs and kiss strangers. Maybe it’s just slowly learning to love yourself.
Overthinking is the biggest cause of our unhappiness. Keep yourself occupied. Keep your mind off things that don’t help you. Be optimistic.
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
I don’t know a thing about the first girl you loved, why you stopped loving her or why you still do.
There is no coming to consciousness without pain. People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own Soul. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.
In a relationship, you need somebody who’s going to call you out, not somebody who’s going to let everything slide. You need somebody who doesn’t want to live without you, but can. Not somebody that is dependent, but somebody who is stronger with you. A relationship is two people, not one.
But…as bad as it was, I learned something about myself. That I could go through something like that and survive.
Make friends with people you would travel the world with.
I don’t think he understands the strength this attraction has.
He could never comprehend the hold he has over me.
I’m not lucky enough to have touched him.
And yet it is as if he is written all over my skin and doused through out my blood.
oh, I crave him.
Just the sight of him makes me fall to my knees and beg with such detailed lust for his attention, for his touch.
He does this to me, time after time.
And yet he is still not mine.
“It happens like this.
“One day you meet someone and for some inexplicable reason, you feel more connected to this stranger than anyone else—closer to them than your closest family. Perhaps this person carries within them an angel—one sent to you for some higher purpose; to teach you an important lesson or to keep you safe during a perilous time. What you must do is trust in them—even if they come hand in hand with pain or suffering—the reason for their presence will become clear in due time.”
Though here is a word of warning—you may grow to love this person but remember they are not yours to keep. Their purpose isn’t to save you but to show you how to save yourself. And once this is fulfilled; the halo lifts and the angel leaves their body as the person exits your life. They will be a stranger to you once more.
I forgive people but that doesn’t mean I accept their behavior or trust them. I forgive them for me, so I can let go and move on with my life.
things go wrong,
but life goes on."
things go wrong,
but life goes on."
We only obsess over relationships that feel unfinished."
"You know you are doing well when you lose the interest of looking back."
If I tell you I need you, do not take it lightly. I do everything I can to never have to depend on anyone, to never show weakness, and if I say that I need you, it means I am trusting you to catch me when I fall.
Strange experience to suddenly delve so deep into another lonely human heart.
If you ignore your feelings they will get your attention in other ways.
I think being vulnerable and telling someone you care about them is one of the bravest things you can do at any point in your life.
She was most beautiful when she did as she wanted; when she ate what she wanted and sighed in satisfaction. When she wore what she wanted and walked in confidence. She was particularly spectacular when she loved…even when she received nothing in return.
You always learn from observing. You have to pick things up nonverbally because people will never tell you what you’re supposed to know. You have to get it for yourself: whatever it is that you need in order to survive. You become strong by doing the things you need to be strong for. This is the way genuine learning takes place.
She reminded me of the sea; the way she came dancing towards you, wild and beautiful, and just when she was almost close enough to touch she’d rush away again.
destroy this new idea that a woman can’t be strong if she cries over a man she’s lost. destroy the idea that you have to be cold and emotionally detached in order to be a strong woman
