"I’ve been in love with someone that didn’t love me back, and I’ve been loved by someone that I didn’t love back. And I don’t know which is worse: to be broken or to break another soul.”
"So I’ve been trying to flip some bad energy today and I thought to myself that my struggle is just a constant reminder to stay hungry and never stop going. I hope that means something to someone.”

A soul mate is not the person who makes you the happiest, but the one that makes you feel the most. Who conducts your heart to bang the loudest, who can drag you giggling with forgiveness from the cellar they locked you in.”

I always become “friends” with people who are so undeserving of my time

THE WORST BULLIES YOU WILL EVER ENCOUNTER IN YOUR LIFE ARE YOUR OWN THOUGHTS.
If I’ve learned anything about life, it would be that appreciating others is vital. Through their faults, weaknesses, flaws - even if they get on your nerves - appreciate them, what they have to offer. Appreciate their mere existence.

I just wanted your attention.”

YOU ARE THE SUM TOTAL OF EVERYTHING YOU’VE EVER SEEN, HEARD, EATEN, SMELLED, BEEN TOLD, FORGOT - IT’S ALL THERE. EVERYTHING INFLUENCES EACH OF US, AND BECAUSE OF THAT I TRY TO MAKE SURE THAT MY EXPERIENCES ARE POSITIVE.

it is not romantic to persistently pursue someone after they have refused you

DON’T DATE A GIRL JUST BECAUSE EVERYONE ELSE IN THE ROOM CAN’T TAKE THEIR EYES OFF HER, OR THAT BLACK DRESS HUGS HER CURVES PERFECTLY. DATE A GIRL WHO YOU THINK ABOUT WHILE WAITING FOR THE SUBWAY. WHO MAKES YOU WANT YOUR WORDS TO SOUND LIKE SOME PRETENTIOUS ASSHOLE WHO SITS AT STARBUCKS ALL DAY WITH A LAPTOP WROTE THEM. DATE A GIRL WHO MAKES YOU THINK OF STARGAZING IN THE SUMMER AND HOT DRINKS IN THE WINTER. DON’T DATE A GIRL YOU CAN SEE THE REST OF YOUR LIFE WITH, DATE A GIRL WHO MAKES CERTAIN MOMENTS OF YOUR LIFE UNFORGETTABLE. DON’T DATE A GIRL WHO IF AFTER TWO WEEKS SHE “WON’T GIVE IT UP” TO YOU. DON’T DATE A GIRL WHO IF AFTER 6 MONTHS WON’T GIVE IT UP. DATE A GIRL WHO YOU WILL WAIT TILL THE ENDS OF THE EARTH TILL SHE’S READY, A GIRL WHO YOU WILL GLADLY LIGHT THE CANDLES FOR. DATE A GIRL WHO YOU WILL DO ANYTHING TO GET THAT SMILE THAT MELTS YOUR HEART. DON’T DATE A GIRL WHO YOU’RE DEPENDENT ON. DATE A GIRL WHO MAKES YOU MORE DEPENDENT ON YOURSELF TO BE BETTER.
WE REALLY NEED TO START COMING UP WITH OUR OWN VERSIONS OF WHAT BEAUTY LOOKS LIKE, WHAT SUCCESS LOOKS LIKE, WHAT A RELATIONSHIP LOOKS LIKE AND PUTTING THEM INTO PLAY IN OUR OWN LIVES. I THINK THAT WE VERY OFTEN INHERIT THOSE VALUES FROM OUR PARENTS OR OUR FRIENDS OR OUR FAMILY, AND THEY’RE NOT NECESSARILY TRUE. YOUR PARENTS MIGHT BE BIASED AGAINST PEOPLE FROM ANOTHER CULTURE OR THEY MIGHT THINK THAT SUCCESS IS ONLY WHAT’S IN YOUR WALLET AND THE TRUTH IS THAT THE WORLD IS A LOT BIGGER THAN THAT. AS WE START TO RESEARCH THESE THINGS WE CAN REALLY EXPAND OUR VISION OF WHAT LIFE COULD BE LIKE, AND IT MAKES US MORE WELL-ROUNDED, DIVERSE AND CERTAINLY MORE HAPPY.
"I no longer believe that we can keep silent. We never really do, mind you. In one way or another we articulate what has happened to us through the kind of people we become."

I NEED SOMEONE WHO

WANTS TO PLAY WITH IT
Isnt it amazing how beautiful people are. Like just look at anyone and study them and their features and how their lips tort and eyes glisten and how their hair falls or sticks or lays. How their eyebrows flex and the way their arms fold, how expressive their hands are. The way their body moves and how their chest rises and falls so subtley with their pulse. People are beautiful even if we dont find them attractive. The fact that they’re a living being is unbelievably magnificent.
SERIOUSLY BE NICE TO YOUR ANIMALS BECAUSE THEY LOVE YOU MORE THAN YOU DESERVE AND MORE THAN ANY HUMAN EVER WILL
❝I’M ALWAYS FINDING HUMANS AT THEIR BEST AND WORST. I SEE THEIR UGLY AND THEIR BEAUTY AND I WONDER HOW THE SAME CAN BE BOTH.

do you ever go through those phases where you just don’t feel like talking to anyone for a few days and it’s not because you’re mad or anything you just don’t feel like talking???
WHAT IF CLOUDS AND LAKES SWITCHED SPOTS AND EVERY TIME YOU LOOKED UP YOU’D SEE WAVES BEING PULLED BY THE MOON AND WE’D WADE THROUGH THE CLOUDS ON A HOT DAY. WHAT IF BIRDS GREW GRASS AND THE GROUND GREW FEATHERS. WHAT IF FLOWERS WERE AS TALL AS TREES AND TREES AS SMALL AS FLOWERS.
I DON’T KNOW ANYTHING WITH CERTAINTY, BUT SEEING THE STARS MAKES ME DREAM.

CONDITIONS ARE NEVER PERFECT. “SOMEDAY” IS A DISEASE THAT WILL TAKE YOUR DREAMS TO THE GRAVE WITH YOU. IF IT’S IMPORTANT TO YOU, AND YOU WANT TO DO IT “EVENTALLY”, JUST DO IT - AND CORRECT YOUR COURSE ALONG THE WAY
I AM A WOMAN
DOES NOT MEAN
I HAVE TO FEEL BEAUTIFUL.
I SHOULD FEEL APPRECIATED,
EDUCATED, IMPORTANT, AND SIGNIFICANT
BEFORE YOU MAKE ME
Being able to find someone you click with so naturally is the best feeling ever. You feel like you’ve been best friends you’re whole life, it feels like you’re coming home. You’re so comfortable with them. Maybe that’s what a soulmate is. Not someone who shares every single thing in common with you, but someone who feels like home.
SUCCESS IS NOT FINAL, FAILURE IS NOT FATAL: IT IS THE COURAGE TO CONTINUE THAT COUNTS.
i find bad jokes funnier than funny jokes

HURT PEOPLE HURT PEOPLE. THAT’S HOW PAIN PATTERNS GETS PASSED ON, GENERATION AFTER GENERATION AFTER GENERATION. BREAK THE CHAIN TODAY.

“you can try to forget me, but i wont let you easily
Did you ever realize how much your body loves you? It’s always trying to keep you alive. It’s making sure you breathe while you sleep, stopping cuts from bleeding, fixing broken bones, finding ways to beat the illnesses that might get you. Your body literally loves you so much. It’s time you start loving it back.
THE PURPOSE OF ART IS TO LAY BARE THE QUESTIONS WHICH HAVE BEEN HIDDEN BY THE ANSWERS.
HAVING PERFECTED OUR DISGUISE, WE SPEND OUR LIVES SEARCHING FOR SOMEONE WE DON’T FOOL.
❝I’VE LEARNED …. THAT OPPORTUNITIES ARE NEVER LOST; SOMEONE WILL TAKE THE ONES YOU MISS.

YOU ARE A WILDFIRE AND THE WORLD IS MADE OF BRUSH. GO AHEAD AND BURN
Every monster we have is a small one,
but they are all very good at manipulation.
It is like those photos
where someone seems to be crushing
a national monument or the sun between their fingers.
Even though we shine bright like the sun,
even though we stand tall like the monuments,
these monsters will come and take their tourist snapshots,
these grief vultures will swoop down and make it seem like they could crush you whole, between their fingers.
But the secret is that they could never touch you.
So when you get the albums from your demons vacation,
You are a castle,
and they do not have the power to rule here.
the trouble with loving the people who make you feel fireworks in your heart
comes when they leave you with nothing;
but the smoke.
Where do we put our unsaid words? Are they old friends with our forgotten thoughts? Do they make love in beds of
under the guise of gentleness? Do they smell like the ashes of fallen empires, too ripe for their glory? Are they the arrows in the bows at the hands of resentful muses? Do they dine on fist-sized human hearts made of dust?
Where do we put the entire bodies found in the wreckage of matchbox feelings, ignited into house fires by premature actions?
Why do we swallow the austere pain that is too bitter for our sugar-tinged tongues?
When do the tears follow them there, too?
I am my own muse. I am the subject I know best. The subject I want to know better
"You don’t fight with people. You fight for people. You fight for principles. For morals. You fight for truth."
- i may not exist where you saw me, if ever you saw me, and maybe, some parts of me are still quiet, a fogging my hands cannot pull aside the way curtains do, aquivering, metal-mouthed in this floating space, here, wherever here is and wherever you are. if you have to know, i love the smell of zinc roofs after the rain, plants, and the way people’s eyes look like two galaxies when they talk about something they’re passionate about; with their hands trembling, their pulses electric. all taken, that beat. that nonexistent planar of thought, no matter how elusive and throttled that word is–home. most times, i feel like i belong here. most times, i believe i really do.
Just because someone is patient with you doesn’t mean you can just act out of line with them all of the time.
"We must tell girls their voices are important."
"Everyone sees what you appear to be, few experience what you really are."
"But sometimes you just have to accept that some things simply cannot remain the same."
Lying to someone teaches them to doubt their own perceptions, pervading in a person’s relationship with their own intuition. Lying is a form of mental abuse.
"Ce soir-là, j'avais besoin de croire que j'avais quelqu'un,"
"I want to throw a party for the

How well someone treats us is more important than how much we love them.
"You tried to love me
I tried to let you
But my hands are stained with blood
And yours are pure as snow
And I don’t know how to hold on without staining you too."
"What you seek is seeking you."
“He loves me
a flower; Seasonally.”
Why do I keep worrying the most

❝ Love is the most selfish emotion.
❝ Tears are the products of the fires in our souls
❝ Your flaws
in the air,
keep holding your breath.
❝ there are many wrong “right” ones.
❝ It is very possible to love someone but not like them very much.
It is very possible that ‘someone’ is you yourself.

LOVING ME IS ASKING FOR DISASTER.
There are a few things in life so beautiful they hurt: swimming in the ocean while it rains, reading alone in empty libraries, the sea of stars that appear when you’re miles away from the neon lights of the city, bars after 2am, walking in the wilderness, all the phases of the moon, the things we do not know about the universe, and you.
The world is most beautiful at 4 AM because people are asleep and nature is wide awake.
No need for revenge. Just sit back and wait. Those who hurt you will eventually screw up themselves, & if you’re lucky, God will let you watch.
I used to think friendship was sleepovers and play dates.
Now I know it’s not.
Friendship is three in the morning talks about what happened the day before and why the hell you’re still awake.
Friendship is three in the afternoon laughing so hard you’re on the floor at a corny joke for the third time that day.
Friendship is sitting there eating in silence because you would rather eat than talk (and they would too).
Friendship is love in the strangest ways when all else is lost.
Distance sometimes lets you know who’s worth keeping and who’s worth letting go.
The future is a concept, it doesn’t exist. There is no such thing as tomorrow. There never will be, because time is always now. That’s one of the things we discover when we stop talking to ourselves and stop thinking. We find there is only present, only an eternal now.
Those years weren’t lost. They simply weren’t the way I’d planned them.
Why do you put your self esteem in the hands of complete strangers?
Eventually we all realize we can’t force “it”. You can’t force a connection, or love. You can’t force them to be something they’re not.
The sooner we all realize it, the better off we are.
I dislike people who put periods at the end of a text w me… Like “yeah sure.” I do Not need this seriousness in my life u Rude ass bxtch!! Bye!!
Thank you for fucking with my blog, hit me up sometime.
my life is just one unattainable dark-haired guy after another
OPENING YOUR HEART AND BEING COURAGEOUS AND TELLING PEOPLE THAT YOU CARE ABOUT THEM OR LIKE THEM OR THAT YOU THINK THEY’RE SPECIAL ONLY MAKES YOU A BETTER, BIGGER, KINDER, SOFTER, MORE LOVING PERSON AND IT ONLY ATTRACTS MORE LOVE INTO YOUR LIFE.
BECAUSE FEAR KILLS EVERYTHING. YOUR MIND, YOUR HEART, YOUR IMAGINATION.
why do we need to watch the sky to enjoy the stars when the ultimate star is me
The trick is to not let people know how really weird you are until it’s too late for them to back out.
LOST IS ALWAYS JUST A STEP AWAY FROM FOUND.
STOP COMPARING WHERE YOU’RE AT WITH WHERE EVERYONE ELSE IS. IT DOESN’T MOVE YOU FARTHER AHEAD, IMPROVE YOUR SITUATION, OR HELP YOU FIND PEACE. IT JUST FEEDS YOUR SHAME, FUELS YOUR FEELINGS OF INADEQUACY, AND ULTIMATELY, IT KEEPS YOU STUCK. THE REALITY IS THAT THERE IS NO ONE CORRECT PATH IN LIFE. EVERYONE HAS THEIR OWN UNIQUE JOURNEY. A PATH THAT’S RIGHT FOR SOMEONE ELSE WON’T NECESSARILY BE A PATH THAT’S RIGHT FOR YOU. AND THAT’S OKAY. YOUR JOURNEY ISN’T RIGHT OR WRONG, OR GOOD OR BAD. IT’S JUST DIFFERENT. YOUR LIFE ISN’T MEANT TO LOOK LIKE ANYONE ELSE’S BECAUSE YOU AREN’T LIKE ANYONE ELSE. YOU’RE A PERSON ALL YOUR OWN WITH A UNIQUE SET OF GOALS, OBSTACLES, DREAMS, AND NEEDS. SO STOP COMPARING, AND START LIVING. YOU MAY NOT HAVE ENDED UP WHERE YOU INTENDED TO GO. BUT TRUST, FOR ONCE, THAT YOU HAVE ENDED UP WHERE YOU NEEDED TO BE. TRUST THAT YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME. TRUST THAT YOUR LIFE IS ENOUGH. TRUST THAT YOU ARE ENOUGH.
I want 0 responsibilities and a lot of lingerie
I’M TOO INSANE TO EXPLAIN AND YOU’RE TOO NORMAL TO UNDERSTAND.
It’s been two years and the feelings are never ending.
black clothes black coffee black eyeliner black heart
tall boys with dark hair and shy smiles who smell good and have great tastes in music are very important ok
NOBODY REALLY CARES ABOUT YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS. THAT’S WHY YOU NEED TO SET YOUR OWN GOALS AND DO IT FOR YOURSELF. FORGET WHAT MAKES YOUR PARENTS PROUD OR WHAT YOUR FRIENDS LIKE, WHAT IS IT THAT MAKES YOU LIKE YOURSELF?
YOU’RE NOT THE KIND OF GIRL WHO SETTLES. KEEP NOT SETTLING.
One of the best feelings is knowing that you’re wanted. Knowing that someone wants to talk to you, wants to know how you’re doing, wants to see you. Whether they pick up the phone to send you a quick text or stop by your house to catch up, someone or something reminded them of you specifically. It just feels really nice to know that you’ve been on someone’s mind and that they care enough to let you know that.
PERHAPS ART IS JUST TAKING OUT

JUST THE MUSIC OF THE EYES.

I’VE NOTICED SOMETHING ABOUT PEOPLE WHO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD: THEY HOLD THE UNSHAKABLE CONVICTION THAT INDIVIDUALS ARE EXTREMELY IMPORTANT, THAT EVERY LIFE MATTERS. THEY GET EXCITED OVER ONE SMILE. THEY ARE WILLING TO FEED ONE STOMACH, EDUCATE ONE MIND, AND TREAT ONE WOUND. THEY AREN’T DETERMINED TO REVOLUTIONIZE THE WORLD ALL AT ONCE; THEY’RE SATISFIED WITH SMALL CHANGES. OVER TIME, THOUGH, THE SMALL CHANGES ADD UP. SOMETIMES THEY EVEN TRANSFORM CITIES AND NATIONS, AND YES, THE WORLD.
WE ARE THE GENERATION OF NOSTALGIA. WE GREW UP IN THE AGE OF TRANSITION. FROM HAND-WRITTEN LETTERS TO ELECTRONIC MAILS. FROM FILM TO DIGITAL. WE WERE FASCINATED BY NEW THINGS, NEGLECTING THE WAY WE SPEND OUR AFTERNOONS. CUPCAKES AND TEA. PLAY-DOH AND POLLY POCKETS. YOUNG AND NAIVE. TECHNOLOGY COMPLETELY CHANGED THE WAY WE WAITED AND WE GREW UP TOO FAST. THE SIMPLE THINGS IN LIFE SEEMS MORE MEANINGFUL NOW. WE GREW UP IN THE AGE OF TRANSITION AND HAVE BECOME THE GENERATION OF NOSTALGIA.
SELFISHNESS IS NOT LIVING AS ONE WISHES TO LIVE, IT IS ASKING OTHERS TO LIVE AS ONE WISHES TO LIVE.
NAME TEN THINGS YOU WANNA DO BEFORE YOU DIE AND THEN GO DO THEM. NAME TEN PLACES YOU REALLY WANNA BE BEFORE YOU DIE AND THEN GO TO THEM. NAME TEN BOOKS YOU WANNA READ BEFORE YOU DIE AND THEN GO READ THEM. NAME TEN SONGS YOU WANNA HEAR AGAIN BEFORE YOU DIE, GET ALL OF YOUR FRIENDS TOGETHER AND SCREAM THEM, BECAUSE RIGHT NOW ALL YOU HAVE IS TIME BUT SOMEDAY THAT TIME WILL RUN OUT. THAT’S THE ONLY THING YOU CAN BE ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN ABOUT. THINK OF ALL THE THINGS THAT ARE WRONG WITH YOUR LIFE AND THEN FIX THEM, THINK OF ALL THE THINGS THAT YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR LIFE BE THANKFUL YOU ARE BLESSED WITH THEM, THINK OF ALL THE THINGS THAT HOLD YOU BACK AND REALIZE THAT YOU DON’T NEED THEM, THINK OF ALL THE MISTAKES YOU HAVE MADE IN YOUR LIFE, MAKE SURE THAT YOU NEVER REPEAT THEM BECAUSE RIGHT NOW ALL YOU HAVE IS TIME BUT SOMEDAY THAT TIME WILL RUN OUT. THAT’S THE ONLY THING YOU CAN BE ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN ABOUT. NAME TEN THOUSAND REASONS WHY YOU NEVER WANNA DIE, GO AND TELL SOMEONE WHO MIGHT’VE FORGOTTEN TRY TO LIST THE ENDLESS REASONS WHY IT’S GOOD TO BE ALIVE AND THEN JUST SMILE FOR AWHILE ABOUT THEM, SOON THE SUN WILL RISE AND ANOTHER DAY WILL COME, SOON ENOUGH THE SUN WILL SET, ANOTHER DAY WILL BE GONE AND RIGHT NOW ALL YOU HAVE IS TIME, BUT SOMEDAY THAT TIME WILL RUN OUT.
There is nothing beautiful about starving yourself until your body no longer works
“I can imagine you getting a tattoo like that. Since you’re so hipster and all.” The amount of times in a day that my brother calls me a ‘hipster’ is endless.
Well I’ve made eye contact with him twice so I think it’s time to get married
I CRAVE A CONVERSATION,
WITH LIPS I WILL NEVER TOUCH.
THOSE SOFT GLORIOUS PROTRUSIONS OF TINGED PINK SKIN.
NESTLED BELOW YOUR PERFECTLY FORMED NOSE.
I SWEAR ANY WHISPER FROM THOSE PARTED BEAUTIES
COULD SEND MY SOUL FLYING
AMID THE NIGHT TIME AIR,
AMOUNT THE ANGELS.
YOU ARE SOMETHING
AND YOU LEAVE MY HEAD IN THE CLOUDS
AND THE STARS IN MY EYES.
— I don’t need wings to fly, I only need you.
BE WITH SOMEONE THAT REQUIRES YOU TO GROW, MAKES YOU FORGET YOUR PROBLEMS, HOLDS YOUR HAND, LIKES TO KISS, APPRECIATES ART, AND ADORES YOU.
“if you’re straight then why did you say she was hot”
yo i’m straight not blind
One time a nun at my school saw a hot guy and said “woah God did a nice job on that one” and we all looked at her like ??? and she goes “I’m allowed to look at the menu I just can’t order”
SILENCE IS BEAUTIFUL, NOT AWKWARD. THE HUMAN TENDENCY TO BE AFRAID OF SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL IS AWKWARD.
I LIKE PEOPLE WITH DEPTH, I LIKE PEOPLE WITH EMOTION, I LIKE PEOPLE WITH A STRONG MIND, AN INTERESTING MIND, A TWISTED MIND, AND ALSO SOMEONE THAT CAN MAKE ME SMILE.
NEVER BE AFRAID OF DOING THE THING YOU KNOW IN YOUR HEART IS RIGHT, EVEN IF OTHERS DON’T AGREE.
WHEN YOU WANT TO SUCCEED AS BAD AS YOU WANT TO BREATHE THEN YOU WILL BE SUCCESFUL
IT’S NOT ENOUGH TO SAY THE HEART WANTS WHAT IT WANTS. I THINK OF THE RAVINE, THE SIDE DARK WITH PINES WHERE WE LOUNGED THROUGH SUMMER DAYS, WAITING FOR SOMETHING TO HAPPEN; AND OF THE NIGHTS, WALKING THE LONG WAY HOME, THE STARS SO CLOSE THEY SEEMED TO CROWN US. ONCE, I ASKED FOR YOUR FAVORITE FEELING. YOU SAID HUNGER. IT FELT TRUE THEN. IT WAS AS IF WE TOOK THE BIT AND BRIDLE FROM OUR MOUTHS. FROM THAT MOMENT I TOLD MYSELF IT WAS THE NOT YETTHAT I WANTED, THE MOVING, THE TOWARD—
You deserve someone who loves you with all their heart, someone who will think about you everytime, someone who will be wondering every minute of the day what you’re doing, where you’re at, who you are with, and how you are. You need someone who helps you make your dreams come true, and make your fears go away. You need someone that treats you with respect, who loves you like no one no matter your flaws. You should be with someone that knows how to make you happy, really happy.
LIFE IS NOT SOMEWHERE WAITING FOR YOU, IT IS HAPPENING IN YOU. IT IS NOT IN THE FUTURE AS A GOAL TO BE ARRIVED AT, IT IS HERENOW, THIS VERY MOMENT — IN YOUR BREATHING, CIRCULATING IN YOUR BLOOD, BEATING IN YOUR HEART. WHATSOEVER YOU ARE IS YOUR LIFE, AND IF YOU START SEEKING MEANING SOMEWHERE ELSE, YOU WILL MISS IT. MAN HAS DONE THAT FOR CENTURIES.
ONLY HANG AROUND PEOPLE THAT ARE POSITIVE AND MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD. ANYBODY WHO DOESN’T MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD, KICK THEM TO THE CURB. AND THE EARLIER YOU START IN YOUR LIFE THE BETTER. THE MINUTE ANYBODY MAKES YOU FEEL WEIRD AND NON-INCLUDED OR NOT SUPPORTED, YOU KNOW, EITHER BEAT IT OR TELL THEM TO BEAT IT.
DON’T GET MAD. DON’T GET EVEN. GET STRONGER, FASTER, AND MORE POWERFUL. FILL YOURSELF WITH
KNOWLEDGE AND EMPATHY AND AN INDOMITABLE SPIRIT BECAUSE NO ONE ELSE CAN DO THAT FOR YOU.
IN THE END, IT’S YOUR LIFE, YOUR CHOICE, AND YOUR WORLD. GIVE 110%, ALWAYS.
Hi hi. I have internet back.
I’LL FIGHT FOR YOU, BUT I WILL NOT COMPETE FOR YOU

WOULD YOU BELIEVE IN WHAT YOU BELIEVE IN IF YOU WERE THE ONLY ONE WHO BELIEVED IT?
WHY DO YOU CARE ABOUT THAT STRANGERS OPINION OF YOU? YOU ARE A GOLD MIND HIDDEN BEHIND THE MUD OF JUDGEMENT AND FALSE OPINIONS. THEY DON’T DESERVE TO FIND YOU. SHINE FOR THE ONES WHO TOOK THE TIME TO BRING YOU WATER. WATER YOURSELF. GROW.

EAT THE DAMN CHOCOLATE CAKE, GET YOUR HAIR WET, LOVE SOMEONE, DANCE IN THOSE MUDDY PUDDLES, TELL SOMEONE OFF, DRAW A PICTURE WITH CRAYONS LIKE YOU’RE STILL 6 YEARS OLD AND THEN GIVE IT TO SOMEONE WHO IS VERY IMPORTANT TO YOU. TAKE A NAP, GO ON VACATION, DO A CARTWHEEL, MAKE YOUR OWN RECIPE, DANCE LIKE NO ONE SEES YOU, PAINT EACH NAIL A DIFFERENT COLOR, TAKE A BUBBLE BATH, LAUGH AT A CORNY JOKE. GET ON THAT TABLE AND DANCE, PICK STRAWBERRIES, TAKE A JOG, PLANT A GARDEN, MAKE AN UGLY SHIRT AND WEAR IT ALL DAY. LEARN A NEW LANGUAGE, WRITE A SONG, DATE SOMEONE YOU WOULDN’T USUALLY GO FOR, MAKE A SCRAP BOOK, GO ON A PICNIC, RELAX IN THE SUN, MAKE YOUR OWN HOME VIDEO, KISS THE UN-KISSED, HUG THE UN-HUGGED, LOVE THE UNLOVED, AND LIVE YOUR LIFE TO THE FULLEST. SO AT THE END OF THE DAY, YOU’LL HAVE NO REGRETS, NO SORROWS, NO DISAPPOINTMENTS.
I AM THANKFUL FOR THE DIFFICULT PEOPLE IN MY LIFE. THEY HAVE SHOWN ME EXACTLY WHO I DON’T WANT TO BE.
is it just me or do you like one of your eyebrows more than the other
If you don’t like me tell me so I can not like you too
all i wanted was you, all i ever wanted was you
and that’s never enough is it
OVERTHINKING IS A SIGN OF INTELLIGENCE.
my life would be so much better if i had a hot neighbor
i’m pretty interested in eating a lot of bread
KINDA POINTLESS TO FIGHT FOR WHAT YOU WANT WHEN WHAT YOU WANT CONTINUES TO BREAK YOUR HEART.
You don’t need to buy me expensive things or take me out to dinner every night or even every weekend. I don’t need the world or want the world. I want the little things. If you push my hair out of face or rub my back. Or if you randomly kiss my cheek. Or text me randomly saying you miss me. Or if you make a tweet about me or post a picture of us. Then that’s all I care about. I want the little things. I care way more about that, than anything else.
How to college:

THE ONE THING THAT YOU HAVE THAT NOBODY ELSE HAS IS YOU. YOUR VOICE, YOUR MIND, YOUR STORY, YOUR VISION. SO WRITE AND DRAW AND BUILD AND PLAY AND DANCE AND LIVE AS ONLY YOU CAN.

I HOPE YOU WILL GO OUT AND LET STORIES HAPPEN TO YOU
why do we keep going back to people that don’t want us. why. why. why.
WE SHOULD ALL START TO LIVE BEFORE WE GET TOO OLD. FEAR IS STUPID. SO ARE REGRETS
SET YOUR LIFE ON FIRE. SEEK THOSE WHO FAN YOUR FLAMES.
BINGE ON LIFE. PURGE NEGATIVITY. STARVE GUILTY FEELINGS. RESTRICT UNHAPPY THOUGHTS. COUNT BLESSINGS, NOT CALORIES. THE ONLY WEIGHT YOU EVER NEED TO LOSE IS THE WEIGHT OF THE WORLD ON YOUR SHOULDERS.
