After learning more about introversion, I became way more comfortable in my skin.
I trust that God’s plan is so much greater than mine that at this point in my life I just need to trust. I need to stop making things happen on my own, I need to allow myself to break down and build myself up again and again, and I need to look after myself for once.
That very brief conversation would replay on my mind a thousand times over with me obsessing about the things I should have said. And me regretting the things I did say.
I dreamt about you again.
In a world that places so much value on extroversion, it’s really fucking hard to survive.
You saw everything. And yet, you still love me.
It’s ok to be lost. But know that you need to find yourself and you may not be who you were before or who you thought you were.
Sex generally happens in one of two ways. And you don’t have to be a porn star to be good at sex.
If he doesn’t talk about his childhood or family this could be a sign he doesn’t intend on getting close.
Rather than saying, “Well, we’ll see what happens,” you must powerfully state, “Today, I’m going to make it happen!”
It’s the endless wondering and wishing I could be better.
This is where my story ends.
Am I allowed to voice that it makes me uncomfortable without being mocked?
I’m learning to discard the parts of myself that don’t fit and shed the layers that no longer belong.
This is me practicing self-love by falling in love with those who are not meant for me.
The REVOLUTION Starts Here: Delete Your Facebook. (No offense, Facebook)
The way other people think about you isn’t everything, but it’s not nothing, either.
Sagittarius: Her self-awareness is what makes Max Cartwright the goofiest and most charming “final girl”, but what makes her interesting is that her love interest isn’t really a boy – it’s her mom.
Trauma is a tattoo on the soul. It doesn’t wash away.
When you make a decision, things will start to shift. Regardless of the absurdities around you, you’ll get momentum. Stuff will start happening. But only when you’re serious and resolute, come hell or high water.
Life is about more than work and marriage and success. It’s about being a good person. It is about appreciating every person that enters and exits your life whilst you have them. It is about living a wholesome life tailored to you. It’s about making mistakes and learning from them. It’s about falling in love with the wrong people so when the right ones come along you know how to appreciate them.
Your parents have literally no clue what they’re doing when things go awry. Seriously though, since you’re the first, they’re also learning how to be parents for the first time. So sometimes, things go off handbook (like I don’t know, you take a ball of wool and turn the entire house into a giant spiderweb and then crouch on a doorway pretending to be a spider. Not speaking from experience or anything.), your parents don’t really know whether to laugh or to punish you
The truth is, you deserve to be loved. Even now, with all of your flaws. However difficult you think you are, there is someone out there who will love you.
VIRGO: Nothing makes you laugh harder than hearing about the misfortune of someone you dislike. Remember the guy who bullied you in high school? He just went to prison for tax evasion! LOL!!!
I couldn’t stop spitting. I couldn’t stop thinking about how that thing had been growing inside of me.
PISCES: You are an extremely loyal friend—that is, up until the moment you find a new lover. Then you forget all about your friends. When you start sleeping with someone, you fall asleep on all your friends.
I got a haunted doll in the mail today. If only I could find where she ran off too…
What I had were false hopes. I should’ve let you go when I had the chance, because as days turn to years, it gets harder and harder.
It’s okay to look at their display picture, type a message and delete it. It is okay to listen to old, rusty breakup songs, and cry yourself to sleep. It’s okay.
You deserve to be the one, the only one. And if he isn’t capable of that, you deserve someone else. Someone better. Someone worthy of you.
Nothing makes the fact that you will actually die one day more shatteringly clear than teetering on the edge of your own oblivion.
You’ll be my flowing river of emotions, my roots, my solid ground, my strength, my moon, and my stars. You’ll be home to me.
A Capricorns shell is a tough one to break, but you once you do- you have them forever.
The only person I should be competing with is myself, and as long as I am a better person than who I was yesterday, I already won.
I remember telling you once that I wanted to live near the ocean, a beachfront home. You said you could never do it, that sharks scared you more than anything.
I am destined to pursue the purity of freedom in its most naked sense.
I’ve always heard people say that life and love are about timing. I think they’re right, but maybe it’s less about when the world decides to present you with something and more about when you decide to do something about it.
The guy who says he’s “looking for someone to go on adventures with.” Does he want to go hiking or does he want to go to an abandoned parking lot and get high? Unclear.
Sisterhood is living proof that there actually are people in this world who epitomize loyalty, and it reminds me every day that being the most beautiful person on the outside isn’t what makes someone special.
I am living proof that it is hard to be a Taylor Swift fan in this day and age. I thought a gay sports league would surely be a “safe space” for Taylor Swift fans. Wrong!
Nothing can prepare you for the loss of a loved one. My world turned upside down that day, and every belief and construct I had relied on to define how my world worked were all of the sudden meaningless.
You love them when they’re unlovable and you stay faithful even when they’re far away.
A Leo might talk about themselves the entire date, but at least they’re nowhere near awkward.
Take the step of courage and speak out to someone today! Be bold and speak over someone you know, or perhaps don’t know.
No one has to be brave anymore. No one has to go up to each other at the bar anymore. There’s an app for that.
Clothes just hold magical transforming powers for women.
I took all the loveless love and sculpted twenty different lovers out of it.
Honestly, every woman should do this.
Don’t justify their actions. If there is one thing I learned when someone left me, it is that I don’t have to abandon myself, even after everyone else has.
The brutally ironic part is: I already overthink everything so I kind of know I’m breaking the very heart I crave and adore.
