I love you, that means I’m not just here for the pretty parts. I’m here no matter what.Claudia Gray, Hourglass (via tyirell)
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.Emery Allen (via wethinkwedream)
Notice the people who are happy for your happiness, and sad for your sadness. They’re the ones who deserve special places in your heart.(via suspend)
Softness is not weakness.
It takes courage to stay delicate
in a world this cruel.
I hope that someday, somebody wants to hold you for twenty minutes straight, and that’s all they do. They don’t pull away. They don’t look at your face. They don’t try to kiss you. All they do is wrap you up in their arms, without an ounce of selfishness in it.Jenna, Waitress (via thebeautyinbeautiful)
