You wanna fly, you got to give up the shit that weighs you down.

-Toni Morrison, Song of Solomon (via introspectivepoet)

One of the most amazing things that can happen is finding someone who sees everything you are and won’t let you be anything less. They see the potential of you. They see endless possibilities. And through their eyes, you start to see yourself the same way. As someone who matters. As someone who can make a difference in this world.

-Susane Colasanti (via justinancheta)

The reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind-the-scenes to everyone else’s highlight reel.

On the other side of that door, here is what you don’t know: I am aching and I am still in love with you. You don’t know this because I haven’t told you. I haven’t told you because I am not the same kind of brave that you are. I have to remind myself to be sorry a hundred times a day for not being what you need. I have not learned to peel myself like you. I have not learned to stand naked in front of people and not worry that they’re going to ruin me. Here is to you. Here is to your proud vulnerability. I am still learning. One day I will tell you with my chin up, proud. One day I will let you hold the shaking nerves of me. But today, I am still learning.

Your mental and physical health comes before anything. Exams can be redone. Your life can’t.

Cut the poison out of your life. No matter what - or whom - it may be.

-Jeigo - It’s going to hurt before it gets better  (via egyptiiangirl)

I’m a quiet person. I spend time observing, not speaking.

-(via yannase)

You have this one life. How do you wanna spend it? Apologizing? Regretting? Questioning? Hating yourself? Dieting? Running after people who don’t see you? Be brave. Believe in yourself. Do what feels good. Take risks. You have this one life. Make yourself proud.

1. Your skin may never be perfect, and that’s okay.

2. Life is too short not to have the underwear, the coffee, and the haircut you want.

3. Everyone (including your family, your coworkers, and your best friend) will talk about you behind your back, and you’ll talk about them too. It doesn’t mean you don’t love each other.

4. It’s okay to spend money on things that make you happy.

5. Sometimes without fault or reason, relationships deteriorate. It will happen when you’re six, it will happen when you’re sixty. That’s life.

-Five things I am trying very hard to accept (via aumoe)

A thought is a hard thing to control.
