You are designed to want something that will hurt you. And you cannot help wanting it. You cannot stop wanting it. It is in your design. And when you finally find it, this thing will burn you up. This thing will destroy you. - Robopocalypse by Daniel H. Wilson (via quotemybooks)

I understood myself only after I destroyed myself.

And only in the process of fixing myself, did I know who I really was.

- Sade Andria Zabala | Thought of the Day: Self-Discovery (via pri5cillasanchez)

Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror.
Just keep going. No feeling is final.
- Rainer Maria Rilke, The Book of Hours (via ugh)

h0llo:

ive stolen this line and used it so many times

sometimes I kiss people I shouldn’t kiss and let them unbutton my jeans sometimes I leave English class without asking and walk in angular circles until I can hear the blood rushing under my skin sometimes I run until I can’t breathe sometimes I sit in the rain sometimes I sleep for six hours in the middle of the day

sometimes I drive too fast and listen to my music so loud that it hurts sometimes I drink until everything goes black and I don’t remember talking about you all night (even though I do)

sometimes I cry about books and about people who died hundreds of years ago sometimes I don’t cry even though I want to more than anything sometimes I ignore the people I love sometimes I hold myself to keep everything in because you are not here to do it

sometimes I think I’m alive sometimes I think I probably never will be

Not all toxic people are cruel and uncaring. Some of them love us dearly. Many of them have good intentions. Most are toxic to our being simply because their needs and way of existing in the world force us to compromise ourselves and our happiness. They aren’t inherently bad people, but they aren’t the right people for us. And as hard as it is, we have to let them go. Life is hard enough without being around people who bring you down, and as much as you care, you can’t destroy yourself for the sake of someone else. You have to make your wellbeing a priority. Whether that means breaking up with someone you care about, loving a family member from a distance, letting go of a friend, or removing yourself from a situation that feels painful — you have every right to leave and create a safer space for yourself. - Daniell Koepke (via notebookings)

Let it be known

on children. CHILDREN.

It amazes me, how many of you DON’T CARE about Syria. You’ll talk social justice day and long, but when it comes to Muslim children being murdered, suddenly y’all are silent. I see not even ANYWHERE near the amount of discussion and information I should be seeing about this GENOCIDE.
