If someone asks you “what would be one thing you would change about yourself?” The best answer is nothing, because if you change yourself and don’t be who you are, then who are you?
You don’t get to choose, you just fall in love. And you get this person who is all wrong and all right at the same time. And you know that you love them so much except sometimes they just drive you completely insane and no one can explain it and the reason its so confusing is because its love. but if love didn’t have any challenges, what would be the point?
In your life, you meet people..
Some you never think about again..
Some you wonder what happened to them..
There are some that you wonder if they ever think about you..
And then there are those you wish you never had to think about..
… But you d o…
Don’t look down on anyone unless you are helping them up.
Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.
When I was a kid, my father had this dog that started to get all weak and sickly. He takes it to the vet, he examines it and says a maggot must have laid eggs in the dog’s butt. The baby maggots have crawled up, now they’ve started to grow, and eventually they’re gonna eat the dog alive from the inside. He says it should be put to sleep, because it’s an old dog anyway. But father won’t do it. He takes the dog home, he puts it on the bed, he reaches up into the dog, picking out the maggots with his finger, one by one. It takes him all night, but he gets every last one. That dog outlived my father. That’s love, Sam. – addicted to love

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us,
we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice,
solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.
The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion,
who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement,
who can tolerate not knowing, not curing,
not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness,
that is a friend who cares.
the tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon,
but that we wait so long to begin it.
to love. to be loved. to never forget your own insignificance. to never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. to seek joy in the saddest places. to pursue beauty to its lair. to never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. to respect strength, never power. above all, to watch. to try and understand. to never look away. and never, never to forget.”
“You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She’s not perfect – you aren’t either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can. She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break – her heart. So don’t hurt her, don’t change her, don’t analyze and don’t expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she’s not there.”
A loving relationship is one in which the loved one is free to
be himself – to laugh with me, but never at me; to cry with me,
but never because of me; to love life, to love himself, to love
being loved. Such a relationship is based upon freedom
and can never grow in a jealous heart.
You’ll never know how strong you are
until being strong is the only option you have.
everybody wants to be the sun that lights up your life
but i’d rather be the moon, so i can shine on you
during your darkest hour of the darkest day
when your sun isnt around.
The kisses you place on my forehead, when you
think I’m asleep mean the most. Why?
Because you did them because you wanted to,
and not because you had to.
Don’t ever complain about growing old, so many people never get the chance.
All I could think about was that time we stayed up all night talking. You didn’t say that I was wrong or stupid. You didn’t laugh at me when I confessed my wildest dreams. You just listened, and it was then that I knew. I knew I wanted to be with you.
No girl should ever forget that she doesn’t
need anyone who doesn’t need her.

But yesterday, I felt something I haven’t felt for a long time.
For those two seconds when you brushed my shoulder
it was like the entire universe trembled
and the electricity there was enough
to light up the whole city.
