You don’t have to disrespect and insult others simply to hold your own ground. If you do, that shows how shaky your own position is. - ― Red Haircrow (via psych-quotes)
It’ll never make sense to me why the people I love most hurt me so badly.
Sometimes you’re 23 and standing in the kitchen of your house making breakfast and brewing coffee and listening to music that for some reason is really getting to your heart. You’re just standing there thinking about going to work and picking up your dry cleaning. And also more exciting things like books you’re reading and trips you plan on taking and relationships that are springing into existence. Or fading from your memory, which is far less exciting. And suddenly you just don’t feel at home in your skin or in your house and you just want home but “Mom’s” probably wouldn’t feel like home anymore either. There used to be the comfort of a number in your phone and ears that listened everyday and arms that were never for anyone else, but just to calm you down when you started feeling trapped in a five-minute period where nostalgia is too much and thoughts of this person you are feel foreign. When you realize that you’ll never be this young again but this is the first time you’ve ever been this old. When you can’t remember how you got from sixteen to here and all the same feel like sixteen is just as much of a stranger to you now. The song is over. The coffee’s done. You’re going to breathe in and out. You’re going to be fine in about five minutes. - The Winter of the Air (via minuty)
Thinking something does not make it true. Wanting something does not make it real. - ― Michelle Hodkin (via psych-quotes)
If you’ll not settle for anything less than your best, you will be amazed at what you can accomplish in your lives. - Vince Lombardi - TheDailyPositive.com (via thedailypozitive)
Our lives are not as limited as we think they are; the world is a wonderfully weird place; consensual reality is significantly flawed; no institution can be trusted, but love does work; all things are possible; and we all could be happy and fulfilled if we only had the guts to be truly free and the wisdom to shrink our egos and quit taking ourselves so damn seriously. - ― Tom Robbins (via psych-quotes)
