You deserve to be confident, without the reminder to be humble. You deserve to look at your reflection with eyes of awe, not judgment. You deserve to be held forever, not for a night. You deserve to be first, second, and third. You deserve to have everything you want. You deserve this power. It is who you are and who you will always be.”

You can’t change someone. You can’t only love them when you’re drunk and lonely. You can’t only think they’re the one when others make you lose all hope in love. You can’t turn them into someone they’re not, someone you want them to be.
What you can do though is realize what you deserve. Realize what you want. Realize what you’re looking for.”
Brianna Perry, If You Don’t Feel Lightning In Your Bones, Don’t Stay

Love is not a thing that needs to be earned by changing yourself from the person you are.”

Someone, someday is going to see the brokenness in your heart and love you in spite of it.”
