Introverts don’t get lonely if they don’t socialize with a lot of people, but we do get lonely if we don’t have intimate interactions on a regular basis.
I have never related to a quote more in my life than I do this one right here, right now. BAM. (via kbfoto)
Be gentle with yourself. You’re doing the best you can.
No, I’m not ok. But I haven’t been ok since I was 11, maybe 12. I am still here though.
I’m still breathing. For me, sometimes, that will have to be enough
How to kill someone:
fill them with passion
and then quickly
But who prays for Satan? Who, in eighteen centuries, has had the common humanity to pray for the one sinner that needed it most?

This is honestly my favorite quote. It’s changed how I look at life and religion.
He’ll burn you down like wax if you let him. You’ll think it’s love, when he dines on your heart. And maybe it will be.
One day you lose something, and you say: ‘Oh my God. I was happy. And I didn’t even know it.’
Now all you can do is wait. It must be hard for you, but there is a right time for everything. Like the ebb and flow of tides. No one can do anything to change them. When it is time to wait, you must wait.
Haruki Murakami/ The Wind Up Bird Chronicle (via cslacsga)
Listen to me, your body is not a temple. Temples can be destroyed and desecrated. Your body is a forest — thick canopies of maple trees and sweet scented wildflowers sprouting in the underwood. You will grow back, over and over, no matter how badly you are devastated.
Falling in love is by chance, staying in love is a choice.
I wonder how biology can explain the physical pain you feel in your chest when all you want to do is be with someone.
I urge you to please notice when you are happy.
I wonder if I look as empty as I feel
Love is a state of being. Your love is not outside. It is deep within you. You can never lose it and it cannot leave you.
Eckhart Tolle (via elige)
