“Don’t tell me that you love me, because anyone can tell me that. Tell me that I make you tear up with anger and frustration, but at the end of the day you still want to lay down next to me, put your arms around me, and sleep.”—(via sixpenceee)
Since eyes are the primary sensory organ for light, it is no surprise that eyes have been called the windows of the soul. Our eyes reflect our outlook, our attitudes, and our openness. Conversely, they tell when we filter or screen out…
“Sometimes beautiful things come into our lives out of nowhere. We can’t always understand them, but we have to trust in them. I know you want to question everything, but sometimes it pays to just have a little faith.”—Lauren Kate, Torment (via perfect)
It’s easy to get caught up in social media, pop culture and images of shiny, happy people telling us how we should think and feel. But variety is the spice of life, so value yourself for the unique individual you are. We’re all on this planet together and each of us have something truly unique to offer. Rather than comparing yourself to the image and achievement of others, celebrate who you are, where you came from and where you’re going.”—Tips To Help Build Your Confidence (via jlols)
“I used to think I was tough, but then I realized I wasn’t. I was fragile and I wore thick fucking armor. And I hurt people so they couldn’t hurt me. And I thought that was what being tough was, but it isn’t.”—James Frey (via lullabysounds)
if someone tells you you’re beautiful, you tell them they are too. if someone says they love you, decide if they mean it before you say it in return. if a boy tells you he’d date you if you didn’t smoke, light a cigarette and walk away. if your mother screams at you because she’s had a bad day, close your eyes and leave her to her anger. if last nights lover doesn’t call you back, do not cry and blame yourself.
Lately, I have been feeling just like complete and utter crap. At first, I thought it was because I was just getting off my monthly cycle so it was probably post-pms, but I knew the real reason… I was feeling worthless… again. This feeling always comes and goes, but every time it does it gets harder and harder to break out of. I hate myself for feeling like this and for being weak. I’m such a weak fucking person. I have so many insecurities about myself that it makes me laugh at how pathetic I am sometimes. I can pretend all I want that I am this confident, independent person, but really I’m not. I’m not even close to that. If me and a person are talking, I automatically play scenarios in my mind of us together and it hasn’t even gotten that far yet! I jump so far ahead and hope so much that I blind myself and put myself in this vulnerable stage. In this vulnerable stage, I allow myself to drown in my insecurities. I know that saying about how no one can’t make you feel worthless or insecure unless you let them and well looks like I let people… sad isn’t it? I was one of those girls that actually believed that if a guy wanted to have an intimate relationship with you it meant that you were something special and important. But in actuality all those guys just wanted to have sex and I was just another notch in their belt… I guess I confused sex for love.. How naive of me. It’s no surprise I guess. I’ve always been the naive one in my group of friends. I’ve always been the one in the group to believe in fairytale endings and prince charmings. But those don’t really exist do they? It’s so sad that I don’t even know how to love myself anymore because quite honestly I hate this me. I hate everything about me. I am a disappointment. I am nothing but a naive, insecure little girl. Who would love this person with some many fucked up qualities and flaws?! I am so fucked up emotionally that I don’t even know how I function sometimes. I’ve been hurt so much by so many people and I just hold it all in because I can’t say it out loud. Feeling like this really hurts so, so much. jfkdlsjfkldjsfkjdsklfd I hate this warped mind of mine! I don’t know how much more I can survive this feeling because it takes a toll on me every single fucking time. I just want to feel love and that I am worth something to someone…
