“I don’t want to see anyone. I lie in the bedroom with the curtains drawn and nothingness washing over me like a sluggish wave. Whatever is happening to me is my own fault. I have done something wrong, something so huge I can’t even see it, something that’s drowning me. I am inadequate and stupid, without worth. I might as well be dead.”—Margaret Atwood, from Cat’s Eye.
“Those who love you are not fooled by mistakes you have made, or by dark images you hold about yourself. They remember your beauty when you feel ugly; your wholeness when you are broken; your innocence when you feel guilty; and your purpose when you are confused.”—Alan Cohen.
“And if you call me at 4 am, too sad to even say hello, I will listen to your silence until you fall asleep. If you need to cry I will not wipe your tears away because you are only human and sometimes tears are as close to laughter as you can get and that’s okay. If you get sleepy I will let you drool on my arm and I won’t laugh at you if you snore too loud. If you need to yell so hard that your voice cracks and your knees fail I will hold you up and yell with you. If you get so angry you punch your hands red I will ice your knuckles and tell you that wounds heal both inside and out, and just like the cold that is harsh and burning, I will always be the warmth to soothe you and make you feel better. I will love you.”—lntroduction (via timid)
You fucking lied. You fucking told me that I didn’t need to worry about baby sitting because you would make it your priority and I’m the one doing all the fucking work. You haven’t lifted a fucking finger. Everyone is fucking useless. I’m so fucking angry. Fuck off. FUCKING FUCK.
“Anxiety, the next gumption trap, is sort of the opposite of ego. You’re so sure you’ll do everything wrong you’re afraid to do anything at all. Often this, rather than “laziness” is the real reason you find it hard to get started.”—Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert M. Pirsig.
stop white girls who think murderous sociopaths are attractive
jmitropoulos: I think what they meant to say was, “Stop pseudo intellectual idiots who think murderous sociopaths are attractive from believing they are entitled to broadcast their opinion on social media sites.”
