“Don’t be so damn hard on yourself. Yeah, you screwed up. You’re not perfect, fine. Learn from it. But don’t punish yourself. Be kind to you, even when you screw up. You’ll bounce back eventually. You’ll make up for it.”—Stephanie Klein (via kari-shma)
Forgive me, but it’s painful to think of you this way Because there is evidence of your world without me I could live in those pictures taken a long time ago and pretend that I also loved another when in truth it was just the ghost of loss
I’m sorry, but it’s painful to know that my pain is no one’s fault but mine
“Don’t you see? Because were so trained to do life the right way. To not make mistakes. I figure, the bigger the mistake looks, the better chance I’ll have to break out and live a real life. Our real discoveries come from chaos, from going to the place that looks wrong and stupid and foolish.”—Invisible Monsters - Chuck Palahniuk (via jennayyieex3)
But you forgot about those cold days haunted by the lives we used to love living. We forgot the bliss we found in loving other people. You forgot that things like that stain you; they leave the marks on the walls of your heart. It’s cold, I said,
and I don’t remember ever giving you my love for safekeeping.
A lot of the time I get that feeling like I was in the middle of a huge black ocean, or in deep space, but not in the fascinating way. It’s just that everything was incredibly far from me. It was worst at night.
“Do you ever wonder whether people would like you more or less if they could see inside you? …I always wonder about that. If people could see me the way i see myself—if they could live in my memories—would anyone, anyone, love me?”—John Green An Abundance of Katherines (via 24ribs)
“Right now I want a word that describes the feeling you get - a cold, sick feeling deep down inside - when you know something is happening that will change you, and you don’t want it to, but you can’t stop it. And you know, for the first time, for the very first time, that there will now be a before and an after, a was and a will be. And that you will never again be quite the person you were.”—Jennifer Donnelly (via 99lions)
