I’ll pray for you and someday forgive you, but I sure as hell don’t wish you the best.
One moment in your life you will realize that it was a mistake to ever hurt me in any way that you did. And once you decide to come around and say sorry (if you were smart enough to ever do that), you’ll realize your apologizes will be worth nothing to me.
So think twice before you decide to hurt me, because trust me, it will be your loss in the end.
If you have food in the fridge, clothes on your back, a roof over your head and a place to sleep, you are richer than 75% of the world. If you have any money in the bank, your wallet and some spare change in a dish someplace, you are among the top 8% of the world’s wealthy. If you woke up this morning with more health than illness, you are more blessed than the million people who will not survive this week. If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the agony of imprisonment or torture, or the horrible pangs of starvation, you are luckier than 500 million people alive going through this suffering. If you can read this message you are more fortunate than the 3 billion people in the world who cannot read at all.
“May we never let the things we can’t have, or don’t have, or shouldn’t have, spoil our enjoyment of the things we do have and can have. As we value our happiness, let us not forget it, for one of the greatest lessons in life is learning to be happy without the things we cannot or should not have.”—Richard L. Evans (via somethingaboutmaritess)
Everyone says love hurts but thats not true. Loneliness hurts, rejection hurts, losing someone hurts, envy hurts. Everyone gets these things confused with love, but in reality love is the only thing in this world that covers up all pain and makes someone feel wonderful again. Love is the only thing in this world that does not hurt.
The secret isn’t to find someone you love spending time with, I love spending time with alot of people. The secret isn’t to find someone that you find attractive. I find alot of people attractive for many different reasons. The secret isn’t to find someone who is nice, there are tons of nice people in the world.
The secret is to find someone who wants exactly what you want. Someone who is ready to give you all they’ve got, and in turn be ready to accept all the love you have to give. The world is filled with people in relationship teeter-totters of “loves you more” + “I have to act mean so they will like me back” or “I am just not ready”. Please do not waste any more of your precious time. You are an amazing creature. You deserve to be loved until your insides melt. Don’t give up on all the things you want.
When you meet the right person you will have zero doubt in your mind. zero.
If you are going to fall in love with me, it’s only fair that you know what you are falling in love with.
You are falling in love with my insecurities, and my obsession with trying to figure out what everyone thinks of me. You are falling in love with my immaturity, my constant need to feel loved and appreciated, my overactive tear ducts, my internet obsession, my tendency to be too clingy. You fall in love with my troubled past, and my hopes and dreams, and how I’m a hopeless romantic at heart. If you fall in love with me, you fall in love with my self-hate and all my imperfections and my perception that nobody could ever love me.
But, you are also falling in love with the way my eyes will smile when I’m with you, the way I’ll text you in the mornings just telling you I hope you have a great day. You’re falling in love with the occasionally humorous and/or thought-provoking things I say, and the way I blush when people ask me about you. But to me, the most important thing will be that you are falling in love with me, despite my thinking that it is impossible.
“Sometimes we can get stuck in the middle caught in between decisions or just life at a crossroads. It’s good to remember that it won’t last forever, the sun will continue to rise and time will prevail. You will get through it and free your mind. I find myself at the crossroads of life. Paths before me going every which way I can’t go back and I can’t go on, until I sort out some things. Let go of the future and hold onto the past or release the gone and grip what may be, maybe even cling to the present and live past tomorrow. Go one way, can’t go back. Travel another, wrong choice to pick, so many different ways to go, so many other things to say. Things that must be left unsaid, things that are to be left undone. Actions regretted, inaction’s eternal torment. What I want may not be meant. What I have to say must be left in silence. Needful things often lead to unwanted hardships. Sell your soul or wheel and deal. Either way, you’ve gotta choose. Decide which way to go and what to leave behind. Eternity can’t be spent standing in the middle. Standing at the crossroads of life I try to think men know how to fight without retreat for what they want, but only the brave and wise know when to give up. Many are my foes without cause, a multitude of enemies without reason.”—Psalm 38:20 (via somethingaboutmaritess)
To tell you the truth I don’t have much to offer. But I’ll still give you everything I’ve got, even if it’s barely a thing at all. I’ll give you late nights, long hugs. Someone to talk to, someone to care for, someone who will always be there. A hand to hold, somebody to lean on. And if that’s not enough, just know you have all of me. I hope that’s enough.
“You have to know that you’re a good person and a good friend. What’s meant to be will end up good, and what is not, won’t. Relationships are worth fighting for, but sometimes you can’t be the only one fighting. At times, people need to fight for you. If they don’t, you must move on and realize that what you gave them was more than they were willing to give you. Hopefully, people realize great things when they come around and don’t lose something real. Always fight until you can’t anymore and then, be fought for.”—(via somethingaboutmaritess)
“Life is not about who you love and who you hurt, it’s about keeping your trust, It’s about what you say and what you mean. It’s about judgments you pass and why. It’s about jealousy, fear, and revenge, but mostly of all it’s about using your life to touch or poison other peoples hearts in a way that could have never have occurred alone.”—
“Whatever we focus on is bound to expand. Where we see the negative, we call forth more negative. And where we see the positive, we call forth more positive. Having loved and lost, I now love more passionately. Having won and lost, I now win more soberly. Having tasted the bitter, I now savor the sweet.”—(via somethingaboutmaritess)
You either deal with it and learn from it, or you sit and do nothing about it. There’s no time to feel sorry for yourself and sulk in the negativity. You get through it or you don’t. No matter what, you have a choice. And either way, it’s only you who is going benefit from it, no one else.
