Take everything personally. Make everything about you. Form an opinion on whatever you see or hear.
Suicide isn’t talked about enough. It’s very real. It’s very scary and there’s something that we can do about it.
Non-stop texting when they haven’t answered your latest text.
It takes work. But all the best things do.
No one gets through life unscathed. No one gets through life without loss and death and grief.
What are you going to change this September?
Grief is like a spiral staircase. It’s messy, it’s unpredictable, but most of all, it is repetitive.
One sided conversations. The first moment they talk over me or interrupt and don’t “sorry I interrupted what were you saying” me, my battery drains instantly.
Sweet girl, I know you can’t stop thinking about him and what could have been.
Those of you who say people are not capable of changing themselves are right, but what we can do is allow God to ignite change within us.
I had a friend who believed that she was a vampire and would try to bite at my wrists and neck very often. It got to the point we’re she would bring pig’s blood to school and openly drink it out of a cup as if it were juice.
Looking back at my 18-year-old self who was considering this option, I wish I could give myself a bit of advice.
You’re overestimating your heartache. You’re assuming you’re never going to fall in love again. You’re assuming you missed your chance at a happily ever after. You’re assuming nothing like this is ever going to happen again.
Your time and your attention are your biggest assets.
If you’re sitting alone, thinking your intuition has utterly and completely failed you, if you’re wondering how you could have been so foolish, I beg you: treat yourself with compassion.
You can’t have a conversation without bringing up sex. You can’t hang out without making out. You never have any deep, meaningful conversations. You never spend any quality, non-sexual time together. It’s all about your attraction.
I want to assure you that if you can let go of a love that isn’t serving you, you will find love again.
CANCER: You hide your dark side.
He keeps coming up with more and more reasons to avoid making your relationship official. Maybe he really isn’t ready for a relationship right now because his heart is broken and he’s trying to heal. Or maybe he doesn’t want to make you his official girlfriend in case his ex wants to get back together again. Maybe he’s trying to stay available for her.
Scott came over late last night after he “broke [his] girlfriend’s heart” by breaking up with her. She was so upset by the unexpected breakup that he “had to take her out for a drive to Brooklyn,” where they talked on the Promenade. Jeez. The girl probably didn’t know what hit her.
Let me hear Your voice amidst the noises of the world.
I am grateful for today.
It can be confusing, truthfully, how much positivity and inspiration exists. Some encourage us to chase money, some encourage us to chase success, and some encourage us to chase freedom.
I hope and pray that you are happy as well… because I know I am.
I am not perfect. I have flaws, insecurities and fears.
Instead of accepting the ways we think life did not work out, we have to be able to see what was at the core of our desire, and figure out a way to still give ourselves that experience now.
I want someone who is real and has flaws and has parts of themselves that aren’t perfect, because no one is.
Or, how to combat a quarter-life crisis.
Starting from scratch is scary, but it’s not impossible.
In life, we tend to be fast-paced and on the go 24/7.
For the past week, I’ve begun to feel certain that I’ll have the HTLV-III antibody in my blood. After all, if I could have the hepatitis B antibody, why not the one from AIDS? I keep thinking that somehow I’ve forgotten sexual encounters I’ve had.
This summer physically changed me. Something in me shifted, and I don’t think things will ever be quite the same. I know I’ll never be the same.
Can you imagine what it would be like to have a stronger sense of trust in yourself than in anything else around you?
Choose kindness because, deep down, you know it’s right.
Progress comes from celebrating the little victories you make along the way.
Your self-esteem drops significantly.
You should be proud of yourself for failing because it means you tried. It means you took a risk. It means you put yourself out there.
Let your peace be your closure.
What are you and your person going to dress as this year?
Pisces: Libra season is going to bring out your inquisitive nature. You’re going to be asking a lot of questions and exploring a lot of new ideas.
There’s a little patch of Band-Aid on my arm where my blood was taken for the AIDS antibody test. Perhaps in as early as a week, I’ll know if I’ve been exposed to the AIDS virus. Dr. Rundle, the gay doctor I went to, told me to sign a fictitious name to the consent form. I signed it “William F. Buckley, Jr.”
If you’re an extroverted introvert and you feel like no one gets you, you’re not alone.
A partner isn’t something you just grab and plonk in a spare spot like a houseplant.
It’s 27 years later….
I can finally say that I am okay without you by my side. That I am no longer living this life aching because of the memories we shared.
Sensitivity is never a weakness. You don’t need to be heartless to be strong.
There always seems to be a fixed time in his schedule or a sketchy part of his routine when he’s unavailable.
The world continues to turn, but yours and mine are now different. Now there can only be hope that, maybe someday, the universe will again conspire for us to meet.
Your skin is the largest organ in your body, and it consists primarily of water. You can stave off the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by staying hydrated.
We have everything we need right there. Right in front of us. Inside of us. What else do we need?
