It bothers me that no one has the patience to deal with someone who is just sad.
The truth is, I pretend to be a cynic, but I am really a dreamer who is terrified of wanting something she may never get.
Every good girl loved a bad boy. It was a fact of life, a quirk of nature. Opposites attract, and the badder the boy, the more attractive he was to that good girl who couldn’t help but be drawn to him.
Lora Leigh, Primal Kiss
You’re going to be sad. You’re going to want to scream and punch things. Do it. Let out every ounce of anger you have. Sit on the floor and cry until you feel numb. Listen to songs that make your heart sink to your feet. Write angry letters to all the people who have broken you, left you, ignored you or hurt you. Throw your hairbrush at the wall. Do it twelve times. Do it until you feel like you can breathe again. You’re going to be sad. You’re going to want to hurt yourself. Don’t you dare do it. Sit on the floor and watch cartoons like you did when you were little. Listen to songs that make you want to dance around your bedroom in your underwear at 3 A.M. Make paper airplanes out of those angry letters and watch them soar into the fireplace. Brush all the knots out of your hair and say “I am worth it” into the mirror. Say it twelve times. Say it until you feel like you can breathe again. You’re going to be sad. You’re going to get through it.
things i wish i could make you understand
Before I am your daughter,
your aunt, niece, or cousin,
I am my own person,
and I will not set fire to myself
to keep you warm.
1/? Things To Remember
I’m lonely. And I’m lonely in some horribly deep way and for a flash of an instant, I can see just how lonely, and how deep this feeling runs. And it scares the shit out of me to be this lonely because it seems catastrophic.
Augusten Burroughs, Dry
How do you get so empty? he wondered. Who takes it out of you?
Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451
I stopped telling myself that I’m lost.
I’m on a road with no destination, I’m just driving with hope that I’ll find a place that I like and I’ll stay there.
I’m not lost, I’m on my way.
I think anyone who falls in love is a freak. It’s a crazy thing to do. It’s like a socially acceptable form of insanity.
i feel like im just an option to everyone and not actually important which makes me kinda sad
Never push a loyal person to the point where they no longer care.
That time you confused a lesson for a soulmate.
And it’s hard to hate someone once you understand them.
Lucy Christopher, Stolen: A Letter to My Captor
