I choose myself because I deserve to be free because choosing to stay angry and discouraged is more work than I want to take on.
You can tell yourself that you never want to date again, but you’ll change your mind.
“I was too clingy and insecure. He would hang out with his friends and I’d text him, ‘Hi, do you remember me?’ I was just this psycho bitch. I would not date my younger self.”
During class, coffee dates, study breaks, and lunch hours, the memory visits her.
I cannot love a black hole fully. Even if they mean so much to you.
Winter: When you develop a close relationship with someone, you refuse to let them go. You are not the kind of person who gives up easily. You will never walk away without putting up a fight.
You are too close for me to see clearly. But it’s best that way.
The amount of times I have heard
‘But if you hadn’t..’
after I had shared my story
Is enough to make me want to
sew my lips
shut for good.
It means that even if your love life is temporarily on hold, you can find the purest joy for others experiencing this thing called, “love.”
Grandmas are usually stereotyped as sweet, mild women, but that’s not always necessarily true. What about the grandmas who are funny? Who are rude? Who are straight up savage?
This is the type of love you’ve worked for and you deserve.
Spite is a powerful thing. It has fueled me to never give up.
Let me stay up with you on your sleepless nights and wake up next to you on your lonely mornings.
You don’t have to marry the first person who pays attention to you
Her last words were, “If you have a message you want to send to hell, give it to me—I’ll carry it.”
Just wait until she’s older and has the vocabulary (and the tact) to tear her college professors apart…
“Until Dawn was pretty fucking well done. At times it was like they were trying to hard, but over all one of the best horror anything I’ve played/watched/read.”
It all seemed a little strange, given Hollywood’s anti-abuse message this past year.
I’m not sure whether you treat everyone like this or whether I’m something special.
I hope you always find the courage to take big risks or end bad relationships. I hope you always find yourself daring and dreaming. I hope you never let your fears define your life.
Despite what your anxiety tells you, you are worthy of being loved.
I keep to myself because life is easier that way. There are less risks. There is a smaller chance I will get my heart torn from its ribcage.
Don’t worry, I’m that partner too.
Always be thankful and appreciative.
I want a love that stays. A love that is permanent in a temporary world. A love that makes me understand why it never worked out with anyone else.
Some people are hurricanes.
They run through you, leaving behind
1. Being super private yet dying to share what’s on your mind with others. An introvert is usually a very private person and they don’t reveal many things about their personal life with others.
But here’s the comforting truth: You don’t have to pick one thing and deny all of your passions. No matter what anyone tells you having numerous interests is a gift and not a curse.
One year after you lose your mom, you’ll really begin to take that first step into making peace with what happened.
He was not home. He was everything I had run away from catching up to me. He was everything that I was afraid to face, but this time I didn’t run.
Don’t go, I’ve not yet perfected the art of saying goodbye, the words are still trapped in my throat, I’ll get better, give me some time.
It is difficult for us to see such tragedy strike, in such a preventable way. For me, I sometimes feel inhuman, that I can’t let myself focus too much on these shootings or attacks. If I put my heart and soul into this type of story, I wouldn’t be left with any heart or soul when I finished. It’s just too hard.
A recent article got a lot of attention when a London professor, John Guillebaud, claimed period pain can be “almost as a bad as a heart attack” causing many women to roll their eyes at the obvious.
When I first became pregnant I wondered if I would lose all the pounds I would put on throughout the nine months. I wondered if I would have stretch marks on my body forever.
They were the only one required to stay; to stand by you through whatever life may throw at you and now they’re gone.
I don’t want to admit that we might both fade into something different, bleeding our love into other hearts.
I wonder if the next time, someone hijacks a plane we are going to propose to hand out firearms to every passenger on the flight to make “flying safer.”
You are your only competition
Self-care means more than filling your room with candles, practicing daily yoga, or a glass of wine partnered with a nice long bath on a Friday evening – even if they do make you feel lovely.
Kindness, no matter how many times it’s abused or taken for granted, is always worth it.
I am extra careful about who I call beautiful. I can’t call someone beautiful unless their souls are, too.
Firstly, you don’t think that losing him is a loss.
Being in love with you was like being drunk off wine – euphoric, weightless, like nothing could touch me.
There is absolutely no shame in taking a medicine that will help you to function and feel better, something that will actually help you to get out of bed in the morning and pursue your dreams and aspirations.
Perfect Truth #1 – Your future ‘one’ is walking this earth with you.
I may not have all the answers
But I do know
that you are not alone
Being weird sounds taboo. But by being weird, you will genuinely have the most fun with your life.
Maybe we got tired. Maybe we didn’t love each other that much for us to stay or maybe we just gave up too soon. Worse, maybe you just didn’t see anything good in me for you to stay.
Thank you for showing me what it is to love.
