Do me a favor and don’t sugarcoat anything. I want to hear your truth, no matter how raw and blunt it is. I want to hear your thoughts, uncensored and unedited.
Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people in the world, I mean everybody. No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside them, they’ve got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe.
Sometimes, there is nothing to be said. Sometimes, nothing should be said. I just want to find someone who won’t run away. Someone to look me in the eye and tell me it’s okay that things don’t always go right. That this is how life works, and how it will always work. That it’s not going to be easy. Today, tomorrow, the next day, but it will somehow get better.
Sometimes in life, there really are bonds formed that can never be broken. Sometimes you really can find that one person who will stand by you no matter what; maybe you’ll find it in a spouse and celebrate it with your dream wedding, but there is also the chance that the one person you can count on for a lifetime, the one person who knows you, sometimes better than yourself, is the same person standing beside you all along.
Just because someone flirts with you, doesn’t mean they like you. Just because someone likes you, doesn’t mean they wanna date you. Just because someone dates you, doesn’t mean they love you. Just because someone loves you, doesn’t mean that they won’t hurt you.
Sometimes, struggles are exactly what we need in our life. If we were to go through our life without any obstacles, we would be crippled. We would not be as strong as what we could have been. Give every opportunity a chance. Leave no room for regret.
Do you smile and let your mind wander? Do you smile and not think of anything? Do you think of me, about what I am doing, and think about what things I did and said that day? Because I do..
I love listening to songs that make me smile, not because of the words or music, but because of the memories behind them.
Being single means that you’re taking your time deciding how you want your life to be and who you want to spend it with.
I’m learning not to sweat the small stuff. This year has been about finding strength within myself- not looking to others for it.
For a kiss to be really good, you want it to mean something. You want it to be with someone you can’t get out of your head, so that when your lips finally touch, you feel it everywhere. A kiss so hot and so deep that you never want to come up for air. You can’t cheat your first kiss. Trust me, you don’t want to. Cause when you find that right person for a first kiss, it’s everything.
Maybe, we’re not supposed to be happy. Maybe gratitude has nothing to do with joy. Maybe being grateful means recognizing what you have for what it is. Appreciating small victories, admiring the struggle it takes simply to be human. Maybe we’re thankful for the familiar things we know. And maybe we’re thankful for the things we’ll never know.
If you look close enough to the world around you, you might find someone like you. Someone trying to find their way. Someone trying to find their self. Sometimes, it seems like you are the only one in the world who’s struggling, who’s frustrated, unsatisfied, barely getting by. But that feeling’s a lie. And if you just hold on, just find the courage to face it all for another day, someone or something will find you and make it all okay. Because we all need a little help sometimes. We need someone to remind us that it won’t always be this way. That someone is out there. And that someone will find you.
People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality; their feelings most of all. People talk about how great love is, but that’s a lie. Feelings are disturbing. People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous. How can they deal with love if they’re afraid to feel? Pain is meant to wake us up. People try to hide their pain. But they’re wrong. Pain is something to carry, like a radio. You feel your strength in the experience of pain. It’s all in how you carry it. That’s what matters. Pain is a feeling. Your feelings are a part of you. Your own reality. If you feel ashamed of them, and hide them, you’re letting society destroy your reality. You should stand up for your right to feel your pain.
When it comes to wanting something really badly, I’ve never been a patient person. I want my degree, I want my career, I want my future. I don’t want to wait for it. I’ve also always liked to be in control of my life. I don’t know very many people that like to be out of control, but I know that I am certainly not one of them.
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that’s the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows; the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.
It happens to everyone as they grow up, you find out who you are and what you want, and then you realize that people you’ve known forever don’t see things the way you do. So you keep the wonderful memories, but you find yourself moving on.
Cherish your solitude. Take trains by yourself to places you’ve never been. Sleep alone under the stars. Learn to drive a stick shift. Go so far away that you stop being afraid of not coming back. Say no whenever you don’t want to do something. Say yes if your instincts are strong, even if everyone around you disagrees. Decide whether you want to be liked or admired. Decide if fitting in is more important than finding out what you’re doing here. Believe in kissing.
God, you are God even when I don’t see you, God, you are God even when I don’t feel you. God, you are God when I feel like I’m falling, God, you are God beyond my understanding.<3
Once we recognize what it is we are feeling, once we recognize we can feel deeply, love deeply, can feel joy, then we will demand that all parts of our lives produce that kind of joy.
