All the hardest, coldest people you meet,
were once as soft as water.
And that’s the tragedy of living.
Iain S. Thomas (via poetisch)
I’d never thought I could cry so much. She’s the one person who would tell me the bitter truth even if it meant hurting my feelings because she knew it was for the best. The only one who can tell me “you’re chubby” without me feeling insecure because I know she only tells me things like that out of love. Living a life without her would suck. I’m nog saying I don’t have hope, but its hard. To see you saying you’re fine when in reality you’re not. I found the news out today, and it broke me. I’m nothing without her and my grandpa. They’re both my stable parents. They’re the only thing I was ever sure about. All I want now is for you to be around all of us and to remember. Remember all the good times we had and will continue having until we can’t anymore. I love you so much. I pray that you aren’t taken from me.
Don’t waste sunsets with people who will be gone by sunrise.
idk why wearing someone else’s shirt or sweater or jacket is so satisfying and comforting but it is
but not as satisfying as seeing someone else wearing your jacket or sweatshirt. like. wow. they’re wearing my sweatshirt. and it’s cute as fuck.
the bond between the person wearing someone else’s clothes and the person whose clothes they are wearing is strong
Whoa now this is what I call a history lesson
You don’t deserve pity. You shouldn’t feel the need to explain yourself and how you came to be the person you are just to make others feel bad. Stand up for yourself. Fix what’s needed to be fixed because you want it to change. Only the weakest people need someone to push them in order for them to change for the better. I’m not saying it doesn’t help to get a little extra push, but don’t hand everything to them.
You need to learn independence. Not once have I ever seen you do anything without needing someone to motivate you. Encourage yourself. And what If the one person you depended on most decided to leave? Would you stop living just because you didn’t have someone to fall back on? Learn to rely on yourself.
Lying will get you nowhere. I’ve learned that the hard way. Either way, the truth will come back, and hit you twice as hard. So in the long run, what was the lie worth? Losing people that really did care about you? Getting a bad reputation? That’s the price you’ll continue to pay until you learn to stop.
I’ve always cared about you. From the day I met you, to the day you crushed me with your lies, and til I realize that you were a shitty friend. But until that day comes, I’ll always have the worry of a best friend, and the care like the kind of mother you needed. It’ll hurt, but that’s the price I pay for being ignorant enough to give a damn about such a horrible person.
You’ll always have a friend in me. I know you don’t like the way I deal with things. I’m too blunt. I’ll tell you when I don’t like what you’re up to or who you’re turning into, and I won’t hesitate to “sugar coat” anything”. You never understood my dark humor in middle school, and I feel like you never will. Just understand that I did and still do care. I’m just smarter now.
I taste the good and bad in you and want them both.

You’ve become so damaged that when someone tries to give you what you deserve, you have no fucking idea how to respond.
