Don’t expect much from a person who lacks the will to give it. I think that’s sadly the most common brand of self-imposed disappointments.
Focus on what makes you happy, and do what gives meaning to your life.

if u are scared or worried or stressed please just remember that even if you mess up super badly, doggies on the street will still tug on their owners when u walk by because they wanna say hello to u so badly

This is legitimately comforting.

1) No one has any idea what is going on. There is no “end goal.” Everyone is struggling down one path or another, hoping there is a light at the end of a tunnel.

2) That includes parents. They are just as hopeless as children. Do remember to forgive them when possible. Like everyone, they have ribcages that swell with fears and anxieties and hope.

3) People are temporary, especially now. When someone is permanent, you’ll know. Don’t waste time or energy hanging on to people who do not belong in your universe.

4) That’s not to say relationships are effortless. Any relationship requires a great amount of effort. By that I mean - listen. Listening is the best thing you will ever do for someone.

5) When you feel it is time to speak, think carefully. Do not spend your precious, wonderful breath on words that do not mean exactly what you want to say.

6) If you get used to sleeping in bed with someone, you will feel their touch the first night you sleep alone. That feeling will go away, and then their smell fades from your pillowcase, and then their face becomes a fuzzy memory. The way your heart flutters when you visit a memory? That takes longer.

7) It is not your place to change someone. If you want to try, know it might change you.

8) If he can fuck you well and make you laugh, he is good for the summer. But if he can’t talk about your favorite book, and if his eyes glaze over when you talk about your day, make sure you lose his number when the calendar switches to September.

9) There will absolutely be times when getting out of bed is so staggeringly difficult, it seems as though the world will collapse around you when your feet hit the ground. It is okay if that fear is insurmountable for today. Try again tomorrow.

10) If you still cannot get out of bed after a week (or can get out of bed, but cannot live), talk to someone. Often times, wallowing will fix chasms in your heart and soul. Often times, it won’t. It’s okay to ask for help.

11) His arms around you will not save you from yourself. Remember you were born to build magnificent things, and you cannot do it with your hands pinned to your sides.

“That’s all right,” she says, and I have to wonder how many times she’s said that to the people in her life who screwed her over somehow.

When you crack your knuckles you hurt the skeleton inside you

Good, the skeleton needs to know that I am the alpha and I am in control.

Break your own bones to establish dominance over skeleton.

really all i want is for someone to feel the same way about me as i do for them

Love happens
and all you’re left
with is aftershock
after aftershock
There’s the heartache
the stomach ache
your muscle-so-sore ache
Love finishes
and you divide your body
into two segments:
the one which must continue,
and the one which pauses,
suspends,
struggles to heal.
The stars subside.
The stars will forget you.
Water droplets roll
over knots in your spine
as I kiss secrets
off your lips
