i have always avoided fights. i make jokes instead. i tell people what they want to hear in order to avoid a confrontation. i pretend to want things i don't want, and i pretend not to want things i do want. no one gets hurt. except me. the lines are so crossed and blurred at this point that i don't know what i want. i just know i want it to be easy. sometimes talking is the best way to solve a problem, even if it means shoving away some of your pride because if you didn't talk about your feelings you could lose someone really important in your life over something as simple as a word. the most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have their way out of the depths. these persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. beautiful people do not just happen. The thing about addiction is it never ends. Well, because eventually whatever it is that was getting us high stops feeling good and starts to hurt. Still, they say you don't kick the habit until you hit rock bottom, but how do you know when you're there? Because no matter how badly a thing is hurting us, sometimes letting go hurts even worse.
I like how sleeping next to someone means more than sex sometimes. It’s the body’s way of saying ‘I trust you to be by my side at my most vulnerable time.’ You have no defences when you are asleep, you tell no lies
Sometimes you have to do what’s best for you, and your life, not what’s best for everyone else. I've learned recnetly that you really never know when your last day will be. It is so important to always apprciate the time that you are given with people and to cherish every memory you have with them. People are taken too young and I will never undertand why this is. I strongly believe that everything happens for a reason, we may never know exactly what another person's purpose throughout life was or why it was their time to leave us. All we can do is truly live each to day to its fullest and always let the people you care about know. A dad is someone who wants to catch you before you fall but instead picks you up, brushes you off, and lets you try again. A dad is someone who wants to keep you from making mistakes but instead lets you find your own way,even though his heart breaks in silence when you get hurt. A dad is someone who holds you when you cry, scolds you when you break the rules, shines with pride when you succeed, and has faith in you even when you fail. Life is too short. Stop spending time with the wrong people. Stop spending time with the people who suck the happiness out of you. If someone wants you in their life, they’ll make room for you. You shouldn’t have to fight for a spot. Never, ever stay with the person that continuously overlooks your worth. Remember, it’s not the people that stand by your side when you’re at your best, but the ones who stand beside you when you’re at your worst. Someone who really loves you sees what a mess you can be, how moody you can get, how hard you are to handle, but still wants you in their life.
You can’t force a person to show you respect, but you can refuse to be disrespected.
Honestly, I hold in a lot, when I’m upset, I really don’t like to tell anyone, especially the person who made me that way, no matter how much anyone asks, the answer will always be “I’m fine.” Even if it’s not true.
Don’t judge me; you can’t handle half of what I’ve dealt with. There’s a reason I do the things I do, there’s a reason I am who I am.
I'm a bitch because I don't put up with people's bullshit.
I'm a girl. I overreact. I underestimate. I over think everything. I dream big. And when I say I love you, I'm not lying.
Don't ask for my opinion and get mad when I tell you the truth. Hold on to the ones who really care, in the end they'll be the only ones there. When you get old and losing hair, can you tell who will still care?
"He makes me think about things I've never thought about before. Not by what he says, but by the way he looks at me. The way he smiles at me makes us connect in a way I never thought possible."
I cannot believe that the purpose of life is to be happy. i think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. it is, above all to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all
Anyone can give up. it's the easiest thing in the world to do. but to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart; that's true strength.
You know what i want more than anything in the world right now? to talk to you, to be with you, this very instant. i want to sit across from you indian style and look into your eyes and see for myself exactly how they change color in the light. i want to hold your hand in the palm of mine, and trace every line with my fingertips
