    do you think God ever gets sad like "what do you mean you don't love yourself I worked so hard on you..."

    When it's time for souls to meet, there's nothing on earth that can prevent them from meeting, no matter where each may be located.

    There are a million different ways to say "I love you" ~ "Put your seatbelt on" - "Watch your step" - "Did you eat?" - "Get some rest" ~ You just have to listen.

    Just remember that these days full of sadness are absolutely nothing compared to the days when you are happy again. Just don't give up, the results are well worth pushing on even if your brain is screaming at you to give in.

    Having courage does not mean that we are unafraid. Having courage and showing courage mean we face our fears. We are able to say, "I have fallen, but I will get up."

    I only write when I am falling in love, or falling apart.

    [1 of 3] I'm soooooo over seeing ads with an "embrace your flaws" theme. This is fake body-positivity at best, blatant manipulation at worst. Some bodies may be disabled, but NONE are inherently flawed. Body hair is not a flaw. Stretch marks are not flaws. Fat rolls are not flaws. Dark skin is not a flaw. Acne is not a flaw.
  12. β€’
    [2 of 3] Wrinkles are not flaws. Cellulite is not a flaw. Pockmarks are not flaws. Large pores are not a flaw. Dry/oily skin is not a flaw. Varicose veins are not flaws. Asymmetrical faces are not flawed. Scars are not flaws. Lacking a tan is not a flaw.

    Some days // A lot of days actually // I feel like I've got one rope on my left arm trying to pull me into the past and one rope on my right arm trying to pull me into the future // And I'm standing there trying not to get split in half

    It's interesting to note that the most kind and courageous souls you meet in life tend to be those who've faced the most cruelty and conflict. This vicious world might sharpen us like a blade, but whether we use that power to protect people or cause them pain, is always our choice.

    [1 of 2] From the dozens of candles in that room, she was the one that stood out. When hurricanes struck with all their fury she did not cease to shine; the high winds only made her flame burn with more rage. Those who dared to blow it away lived the rest of their lives with permanent marks that reminded them of how-
  23. β€’
    [2 of 2] her will to thrive was unstoppable. And when they looked to the sky, the thousands of ravishing birds rebelliously shouting her name reminded them of how her decision to live freely was greater than their decision to live oppressed.

    Sometimes, I'm afraid to be happy because every time I'm happy, something goes wrong, and hurts me.

    Bicker with the bitch in your head that keeps telling you you're fat and weak: Shut up, you say, I'm busy, leave me alone. When she leaves you alone, there's a silence and a solitude that will take some getting used to. You will miss her sometimes. Bear in mind she's trying to kill you. Bear in mind you have a life to live.

    Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray.
    β€” Rumi

    When you use OCD as an adjective and I stand up for myself, you say I am too sensitive. When you try to set me off because my response is funny, you make me feel pain. When you embrace stigma, you ignore the face and see the label, and when you listen to stereotypes, you add the task of explanation to my life.

    Soulmate ~ A person with whom you have an immediate connection the moment you meetβ€”a connection so strong that you are drawn to them in a way you have never experienced before. As this connection develops over time, you experience a love so deep, strong and complex, that you begin to doubt that you have ever truly loved anyone prior.

    I wish I wrote the way I thought; Obsessively, Incessantly, With maddening hunger. I'd write to the point of suffocation. I'd write myself into nervous breakdowns, Manuscripts spiraling out like tentacles into abysmal nothing. And I'd write about you a lot more than I should.

    [1 of 2] Sometimes people use "respect" to mean "treating someone like a person" and sometimes they use "respect" to mean "treating someone like an authority" // and sometimes people who are used to being treated like an authority say "if you won't respect me I won't respect you" and they mean "if you won't treat me like an authority-

    I like being alone. I have control over my own shit. Therefore, in order to win me over, your presence has to feel better than my solitude. You're not competing with another person, you are competing with my comfort zones.

    The horrifying moment when you're looking for an adult but then realize that you are an adult. So you look for an older adult, someone successfully adulting. An adultier adult.

    She is a paradox. She is faithful and yet detached. She is committed and yet relaxed. She loves everyone, and yet no one. She is sociable but also a loner. She is gentle and yet tough. She is passionate but can also be platonic. In short, she is predictable in her unpredictability.
    Never has a quote described me so perfectly btw.

    Never underestimate the power of fate.

    The best kind of people are the ones that come into your life, and make you see the sun where you once saw clouds. The people that believe in you so much, you start to believe in you too. The people that love you, simply for being you. The once in a lifetime kind of people.
