tendered:

Just a friendly reminder that it’s not selfish to do things for your own happiness and well being. You’re important too. Take care of yourselves, friends, I love you.

"   I heard what you said. I’m not the silly romantic you think. I don’t want the heavens or the shooting stars. I don’t want gemstones or gold. I have those things already. I want…a steady hand. A kind soul. I want to fall asleep, and wake, knowing my heart is safe. I want to love, and be loved.   "

Shana Abe 

Everything you love is here

(via lovequotesrus)

"   'Why do people love us? We are always trying to figure that out, but only by using our own point of view. That way is so limited. Sometimes they love us for things we don't even know about ourselves. For example they love our hands. My *hands*? Why would anyone love my hands? But they do and they've got their reasons why. You must accept that and realize the person they know and love is different from the one you know.'   "

it’s always gonna be there, isn’t it? you and me.

"   There is a guy out there who is, without a shadow of a doubt, the love of your life. You might find him in school when you’re 13, getting off the train when you’re 27, or in a supermarket when you’re 45, but he is out there. And he’ll change your life as you know it. He’ll brush the hair out of your eyes, sit through your favourite film even if it’s not something he’d choose himself, call you beautiful every day so you never doubt it, and be by your side when you roll over in bed at 3am. He’ll listen to your dreams, your fears, your hopes, your worries and your wishes, and he’ll look at you like you’re the only star in his sky. Because you will be.   "

"   I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.   "
F. Scott Fitzgerald (via allthingsnewagain)
"  

Please understand that I want you.
You and your ten-second phone calls

in silence. Our exhales ultimately becoming echoes
inside our lungs. I wonder if mountains become jealous

of this closeness from a distance only the clouds can measure.
Some airplanes must have felt the vibrations

of our voice boxes like match sticks rubbed on any surface,
we feel each other’s fingers from places

we will never belong to. I am here and you are
becoming part of the ocean and I am always

a shoreline. All I know is this is me saying “I love you”
This is me waiting for you to just come home

to me. Even if it takes the ocean to understand
how badly I want you to be.

Dear Long Distance Lover by Kharla M. Brillo  (via pouvoires)
"   It was probably nothing but it felt like the world.   "
Morrissey, Autobiography (p. 141)
"   It’s really quite absurd the lengths we go to to run from our emotions. Because you can’t escape something that’s inside of you. You can’t outrun it when you’re carrying it. You can numb and starve and bury and drown what you’re feeling, but those emotions don’t go away. In fact it’s often the case that whilst we ignore them they only grow and multiply. We suppress them in one way only to have them manifest in another. There is only one way to get rid of emotions and that is to express them. Speak, scream, shout - whatever it takes. Let it out and let it go. Free your mind. Free your body. Free your soul.   "
