Relax Wild One


Relax wild one. It’s not your job to be everything everyone needs, and you don’t have to be impressive to be loved. Stop trying so hard. Just show up… and be real with the world. That is enough.
—Brooke Hampton

Do You Guys Realize


Do you guys realize that we can change our lives any time we want? I mean, you can just go ahead and delete your facebook, stop eating meat, shave your head, start running, tell that person you hate why you hate them so much, confess your love to someone and kiss them unexpectedly—why don’t we do that?

Some People Can Actually Save You


Some people can actually save you. They know you more than you know yourself. They make you feel at peace. They bring out your laughter. They bring out sides of yourself—you thought you lost. They show you the importance of self-love and care. Of friendship, loyalty and they remove what hurts from the moment they walk into a room. They do this without any kind of effort. Without thinking it. Without knowing the positive affect they have on your feelings. Some people show you love—without them knowing what love is. They naturally make you feel at home. They bring out the sun in the middle of the rain.

We Are Careless With Genuine People


We are careless with genuine people because we know that they will always be there unconditionally loving us. No matter what we do, we know we cannot fall from their good graces. So we cast them off and push them aside until there is a pull on something we need from them. That connection can never be severed. Even though we may not show them how much they mean to us, because we ourselves don’t even acknowledge it. Even when we’ve taken them for granted, they will still always be there with a smile like they mean it, because they do. These precious souls are the unsung heroes, the weirdos, and the ones we banish to the edge of the woods. But unlike the little red hen, when you come to them they will always share their bread. And that is what keeps humanity from starvation.

Some Of Us Are Bright


“Some of us are bright, happy people with deeply melancholy, oceanic souls.
The spectrum of this is massively wide with many nuances and shades of feeling, both subtle and encompassing. Swim them all.
This is what living is about.”
Victoria Erickson

They Are Scared Of Women Like You.


They are scared of women like you.
Women with hearts big enough to house suitcases full of pain.
Women with laughs so therapeutic they can heal wounds.
Women with passion fierce enough to start wildfires.
They are scared of what they can’t tame or understand.
– Billy Chapata

Why Do You Go Away?

why do you go away

Why do you go away?
So that you can come back.
So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too.
Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.

Terry Pratchett
