“Falling down is how we grow. Staying down is how we die.”
– Brian Vaszily (via jhbrd)


do you ever feel like you’re just sort of 


like all your friends go out and do things and get into relationships and like people that like them back and have fun and do stupid things with their best friends and instead of doing all that you’re just sort of this mildly entertaining thing that people take an interest in once in a while but they wouldn’t really care if it was gone

like you just sort of exist but you don’t really mean anything

all day erry day

“Some things are too terrible to grasp at once. Other things - naked, sputtering, indelible in their horror - are too terrible to really grasp ever at all. It is only later, in solitude, in memory, that the realization dawns: when the ashes are cold; when the mourners have departed; when one looks around and finds oneself - quite to one’s surprise - in an entirely different world.”
– Donna Tartt, The Secret History  (via mirroir)

When you feel you have lost everything, you still have
  • books
  • unexpected kindness in strangers
  • the rest of the world to travel
  • languages to learn
  • animals to take care of
  • volunteer work to do
  • the power of a good night’s rest
  • the changing of seasons
  • infinite things to learn
  • billions of people to meet and possibly love
  • billions of people who might love you back

Needed this today

Six Word Story (#2)

It took me a while, but I finally understood: there are people in this world that you will never impress, that you will never be friends with, that will never love you. It doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter if it’s only three people or it’s three hundred or three thousand. It does not make you less impressive. It does not mean that you’re not a good friend.

You are not made unlovable because of someone else’s opinion. They mean absolutely nothing.

“Do not allow yourself to suppress your thoughts. Instead, let the thoughts come before you and become a sort of observer. Start observing your own mind. Do not try to escape; do not be afraid of your thinking.”
