even if it’s only the sun.
Be beautiful enough to understand the meaning behind beauty and how it’s not defined by appearance.
Maybe a friend is someone who wants your updates. Even if they’re boring. Or sad. Or annoyingly cutesy. A friend says, “Sign me up for your boring crap, yes indeed” — because he likes you anyways. He’ll tolerate your junk."
"Do yourself a favor and stop expecting better out of a person who continuously shows you they’re only getting worse. Pay attention to the signs. Stop making excuses for people. Stop defending their inconsiderate ways and start taking care of you and your own needs. A person is only as good as they want to be. No matter how much they claim to love you, Nothing and NO ONE can change them. Stop trying. I’ve learned that not everyone loves the same, however.. When a person loves you.. they will do what it takes to make and keep you happy. period." — Re
Look for us. I hate what we’ve become: two strangers.
Give second chances, third chances, but not a fourth, a fifth, a sixth and so on. Appreciate yourself and understand your worth – know it takes time for people to change, to become better. But know what you can take and what you deserve.
HOW MANY TIMES DO WE SAY WE DON’T CARE BUT DEEP DOWN WE FUCKING CARE SO FUCKING MUCH.
And when you get something good, please don’t go looking for something better.
Stop checking for people who aren’t checking for you. Chances are, they’re still the same person you left behind.. with no progress made or they aren’t who you remember them to be.. they’ve changed into someone you don’t necessarily need to “meet”. Anyone who doesn’t reach out, concerned about you and your well being.. shouldn’t be a factor to you anymore. let life take its course and accept that sometimes we outgrow people and sometimes.. they outgrow us.
, small cafes & summer nights. it's enchanting to meet you.
That’s what friends do: they notice things. They’re there for each other. They see what parents don’t.”

wish i could start over with a lot of people.
I still remember you
as a little girl
who overwaters plants
because she doesn’t know
when to stop giving.
You get mixed messages because I have mixed feelings.

Don’t wait. Writers are the only artists I know of who expect to get somewhere by waiting. Everyone knows you have to dance to be a dancer, you have to sing to be a singer, you have to act to be an actor, but far too many people seem to believe that you. don’t have to write to be a writer. So, instead of writing, they wait. Isaac Asimov said it beautifully in just six words: “It’s the writing that teaches you.” Writing is what teaches you. Writing is what leads to “inspiration.” Writing is what generates ideas. Nothing else-and nothing less. Don’t meditate, don’t do yoga, don’t do drugs. Just write.
This is mankind’s common failure, never to anticipate storms when the sea is calm
when women say “i hate men” they mean it in the “stop hurting me and my sisters” kind of way, not the “i want to rape, murder and oppress you” way. you know, the way men hate women.
Normally, we do not so much look at things as overlook them.
Life is tragic comedy, in a way. There is humour.
the first time we lose our innocence
is when we are told that
dandelions are not flowers,
and that they are not to be loved,
