i don’t like talking with people about emotional stuff because then they learn things about me and get to know me and can defeat me

I’m sitting here thinking of all the things I wanted to apologize to you for. All the pain we caused each other. Everything I put on you. Everything I needed you to be or needed you to say. I’m sorry for that. I’ll always love you because we grew up together. You helped make me who I am. I just wanted you to know, there will be a piece of you in me always. And I’m grateful for that. Whatever someone you become and wherever you are in the world, I’m sending you love. You’re my friend to the end.

You can look at a scar and see hurt, or you can look at a scar and see healing.

I’ve always loved the idea of not being what people expect me to be.

This is what love does: It makes you want to rewrite the world. It makes you want to choose the characters, build the scenery, guide the plot. The person you love sits across from you, and you want to do everything in your power to make it possible, endlessly possible. And when it’s just the two of you, alone in a room, you can pretend that this is how it is, this is how it will be.

Of course I’ll hurt you. Of course you’ll hurt me. Of course we will hurt each other. But this is the very condition of existence. To become spring, means accepting the risk of winter. To become presence, means accepting the risk of absence.

Dear future child
If it’s 3am and you find yourself in a world of complete despair
Please do not turn to strangers on the internet for solace as I did
Please climb onto my bed
And I will hold you until the demons sleep
If it is Thursday morning and you are too sad to move
I won’t force you
I will buy ice cream and we will watch your favourite tv show and I will remind you of your importance
If you feel as if you have no purpose
I will remind you that you were created entirely with love and every pain you feel, I feel too
When you’re sure you can’t go on anymore
I will tell you that when I was 21 I searched for peace at the bottom of a vodka bottle chased by a bottle of pain killers
But that five years later
When you were placed in my arms in the delivery room
I realised that you were why I had been holding on
Without realising it, you saved me, do you know how amazing that is?
So if you ever feel like grabbing that vodka bottle, put it down, we will get in the car and I will drive until the sky turns magenta
I will show you how the sun rises every morning to encourage you to rise too
Sweetheart I refuse to be unaware of your sufferings
As my mother was to mine.
Your mental health is my priority. (via be-fearless-brave-and-kind)
Don’t have a type. Don’t tell yourself you can’t let someone in you’re life because they don’t fit the checklist in your head, it’s just a waste of time. When you meet the right person who treats you like you deserve you will know. And it won’t matter if they drive a jeep or wear expensive clothes or listen to folk music or fly you to Rome because if you really love a person you wouldn’t change a thing about them, even their flaws and demons, and that’s when you know.
Advice from my 85 year old grandmother (via nockturn)
I cannot make you understand. I cannot make anyone understand what is happening inside me. I cannot even explain it to myself.

Little girl, you will start high school. You’ll learn things. About math, science, and history. But you’ll also learn about the boy who has scars on his wrists, the cheerleader who lost her virginity, and the kid who eats all by himself at lunch. You’ll learn about bullying. You’ll learn about drugs and alcohol.You’ll learn about yourself. Things you never knew. You’ll be pushed to your limits. Good grades will fade away, your best friends will become strangers, those sparkly brown eyes will be soon accompanied by puffy bags from sleep less nights, your heart will be broken, you’ll drink and smoke and it’s going to excite you just as much as it scares you, you’ll tell your first lie, you’ll drive your first car, you’ll receive your first F, you’ll be sore from hell week and your volleyball coach is going to scream at you, you’re going to be ignored, people are going to expect you to have good grades, have a good attitude, go to church, have nice clothes, have a cute boyfriend, and go to a good college. You’re going to feel like hell but expected to look like heaven. And in the end, as much as you try, you’re not going to meet people’s standards and expectations of you, and that doesn’t make you a failure. You survived the shittiest days of your life, you are not a failure, you are a champion.
words I would tell myself four years ago (via jphani)
Then there is the boy you can never stop thinking about. Whenever you see his name, it trips you up. Even if it’s one that belongs to many others, even if he belongs to someone else.
You know he is a symbol of your weakness, your Kryptonite. How he rushes in like wildfire and burns through everything you worked so hard to build since he last left you in ashes.
