There’s so much more to life than finding someone who will want you, or being sad over someone who doesn’t. There’s a lot of wonderful time to be spent discovering yourself without hoping someone will fall in love with you along the way, and it doesn’t need to be painful or empty. You need to fill yourself up with love. Not anyone else. Become a whole being on your own. Go on adventures, fall asleep in the woods with friends, wander around the city at night, sit in a coffee shop on your own, write on bathroom stalls, leave notes in library books, dress up for yourself, give to others, smile a lot. Do all things with love, but don’t romanticize life like you can’t survive without it. Live for yourself and be happy on your own. It isn’t any less beautiful, I promise.
Let go of your past. There’s a reason why they didn’t make it to your future.
Reading is the sole means by which we slip, involuntarily, often helplessly, into another’s skin, another’s voice, another’s soul.
#Israelunderattack as well this whole conflict is horrible but the media is only showing one side of it. Israel gave warnings for their shots but palestine aims at hospitals and schools and gives no warning. The villain is not Israel, it’s this conflict in general. Israel is firing back just like every other country would do. Israel has been under attack for many years and have been attacked by all of their bordering countries. Don’t try to tell me that Israel is the only one killing people when you’ve only seen stuff on twitter. Do your freaking research if you want to defend a point. I’m jewish and christian so i’ll defend gods land and god’s people with all i have.
^^^exactly. Israel is only doing what any other country would do if they were under attack. It’s ridiculous that people have to be so desperate to make this a one sided media attack.
And if you call me at 4 am, too sad to even say hello, I will listen to your silence until you fall asleep. If you need to cry I will not wipe your tears away because you are only human and sometimes tears are as close to laughter as you can get and that’s okay. If you get sleepy I will let you drool on my arm and I won’t laugh at you if you snore too loud. If you need to yell so hard that your voice cracks and your knees fail I will hold you up and yell with you. If you get so angry you punch your hands red I will ice your knuckles and tell you that wounds heal both inside and out, and just like the cold that is harsh and burning, I will always be the warmth to soothe you and make you feel better. I will love you.
You don’t ask people with knives in their stomachs what would make them happy; happiness is no longer the point. It’s all about survival; it’s all about whether you pull the knife out and bleed to death or keep it in.
