Forgive the past. It is over. Learn from it and let go. People are constantly changing and growing. Do not cling to a limited, disconnected, negative image of a person in the past. See that person now. Your relationship is always alive and changing.

It’s never too late to start over. If you weren’t happy with yesterday try something different today. Don’t stay stuck.

Of all the animals, man is the only one that is cruel. He is the only one that inflicts pain for the pleasure of doing it.

— Mark Twain (via whyallcaps)

Love makes you want to be better…But maybe love, real love, also gives you permission to just be the…[person] you are.

he’s telling me about the girl at school
he can’t get out of his head,
and how he feels like
it’s always this chain of
“i don’t want all these people that want me,”
(i winced)
“and the one person i want doesn’t want me
in the same way.”
(i inhaled sharply)

i told him he’s overthinking it,
and when he asked, “how do you not?”
(i forgot to breathe)

my eyes got watery, but i blinked quickly
before they could settle
(i exhaled)

and replied,
“i’ll let you know.”

There are times to stay put, and what you want will come to you, and there are times to go out into the world and find such a thing for yourself.

I think I’ve always been half out of my shell and half in. Sometimes I can be extremely wild and sometimes I can be extremely shy. It just depends on the day.

— Emile Hirsch (via bookaddictiion)

Do you think its possible
that some people
are born to give
more love
than they will ever
get back
in return?

I think the scariest thing about falling in love is that there’s always an opportunity to fall out of it. There is no signed contract, no promises that can’t be broken, no guarantees that that person will stick around and that scares me to death. One day, they can just wake up and be over your little weird habits, and the way you say the letter “I.” They’ll realize you’re selfish, they’ll realize they deserve so much more. And that’s the scariest thought I’ve ever had.
