You are so brave and quiet I forget you are suffering.
Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms (via fajinas)
It’s not our job to toughen our children up to face a cruel and heartless world. It’s our job to raise children who will make the world a little less cruel and heartless.
You lose yourself trying to hold on to someone who doesn’t care about losing you.
Tablo (via etrnity)
Falling in love with yourself first doesn’t make you vain or selfish, it makes you indestructible.
Things I’ll teach my children (via whitenes-s)
Survivors have scars. Victims have graves.
Something that I need carved in my bones. (via beagmactire)
perhaps the reason
you hate yourself so much
has to do with the fact that
you’ve poured all your love
into someone else
and left none for yourself
I hope one day you’re as happy as you’re pretending to be.
Unknown (via pain-is-temporary-keep-fighting)
Of course, you never really forget anyone, but you certainly release them. You stop allowing their history to have any meaning for you today. You let them change their haircut, let them move, let them fall in love again. And when you see this person you have let go, you realize that there is no reason to be sad. The person you knew exists somewhere, but you are separated by too much time to reach them again.
