Don’t settle for someone who doesn’t give you things to say. Forever is a long time to make small talk.

Please forgive me if I don’t talk much at times. It’s loud enough in my head.

Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.
-Audre Lorde (via anglophilemeetsbibliophile)
I no longer have the energy for meaningless friendships, forced interactions or unnecessary conversations. If we don’t vibrate on the same frequency there’s just no reason for us to waste our time. I’d rather have no one and wait for substance than to not feel someone and fake the funk.

A comfort zone is a beautiful place, but nothing ever grows there.
I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived
-Henry David Thoreau

Well I feel like you haven’t seen just how incompetent the rest of the world is, you may think your “little kid skills” aren’t worth anything, but they’re the kind of thing that make a person special and valuable to society.

You may not feel particularly good at any one thing in general, but you are good at everything you do. Don’t make being good at everything you do convince you that you aren’t spectacular at anything.

-My boyfriend, always encouraging me when I’m feeling down <3

Stop hating yourself. Try going one day without saying anything bad about yourself. Try complimenting yourself. Do it again. Buy yourself dinner. Put soft things against your skin. Listen to your favorite songs. Eat ice cream. Eat ice cream naked. You have to spend the rest of your life with you. You’re all you’ve got. Be kind, start loving yourself.

Just because one person’s problem is less traumatic than another’s doesn’t mean they’re required to hurt less.

You will screw up, you will be celebrated, and you will feel like a loser and a winner all in the same day. And that will happen over and over. But the people who succeed are those who dust themselves off and keep going because they’re not motivated by hitting their goals. They’re motivated by getting to a place where they can set new goals that seem just as unreasonable as the ones before them once did.

Take a moment to fully grasp that—The most successful people are NOT motivated by reaching their goals. They’re motivated by getting to a place where they can confidently and audaciously move the finish line further into the distance.

So set incredibly ambitious goals. Chase them with fervor. And then move the finish line far off into the distance.

We have enough laws and restrictions upon us to let fashion be another thing dominated by rules and regulations.
