“It’s kinda cool how someone can just pop into your life all of a sudden and become so important to you within such a small amount of time. I think that’s what makes life so interesting though. There’s always a reason to be hopeful for the future because you never know what good things will come your way next.”
After All, Soulmates Always End Up Together
my favorite feeling is when someone does something and your immediate thought is “I love you.” like it could be something small or stupid or very typical of them but they do it and your brain is just like, yeah that’s why I love that human.
Running your fingers through your lover’s hair.

Fall in love with someone who wants you and cherishes you. Someone who understands you even in the madness; someone who helps you, and guides you. Someone who is your support, your hope. Fall in love with someone who talks with you after a fight.
“There’s some people in this world who you can just love and love and love no matter what.”

“To make a difference in someone’s life, you don’t have to be brilliant, rich, beautiful, or perfect. You just have to care.”
– Mandy Hale
“Every relationship will get “boring” after you’ve been together for years if you let it. Love isn’t a feeling, it’s a commitment; to love every day, physically and emotionally. It’s difficult, it’s not always laughs, smiles and fun. People tend to quit when it stops being fun, and they go look for someone else. “the spark is gone.” No, that’s not how it works. You want somebody to never give up on you, and love you unconditionally? Do the same. Be the change. This isn’t Hollywood, this isn’t the movies. That shit isn’t real. Love someone when you don’t want to. When they are being a fucking asshole. When they’re being hard to love. That’s the realest shit there is.”
May you fall in love with someone, who never gets tired of saving you from your own chaos.
The finest souls are those who gulped pain and avoided making others taste it
When people act shady, allow them. When people betray your trust, allow them. But never, ever sink to their level. Their choices are a direct reflection of who they are, not who you are. No matter how angry, hurt, or disappointed you may be – do not allow them to make you bitter. Be better. React with love. Sometimes that means retaliating with understanding and compassion, other times it means retaliating with acceptance and sheer silence. Whatever it is, make sure it benefits you as a human being instead of lowering you into a position which you would rather not be in. Just because someone’s an asshole.
I Don’t Think Most People Understand What True Love Is
It is interesting how people feel the need to rush through life as a way to prove maturity. People will rush into relationships, love,sex, marriage, education, careers, etc just to show that they are grown. As a person who is grown, I find myself understanding that there is maturity in saying “I’m not ready.” There is also maturity in saying “I want to wait.” And there is maturity in saying “let me take some time to prepare.” Being in tune with where I am and making decisions based on my own needs and not the pressure to prove that I’m grown, that I have it all figured out, that in perfect is important to me.
I move at my own pace. I move at the speed that works for me. I move in a way that doesn’t cause me to be impatient with God or myself. I have learned to be still, or wait, or take as much time as I need.
“In order to understand the world, one has to turn away from it on occasion.”

She’s Not The One
‘It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.’
– Harry Potter
She doesn’t want a boyfriend, she’s ready for a man.
Someone who understands that she has more than just physical needs that must be met. She’s ready for a man who’s willing to be there for her so consistently that she’ll never have to double check…she’s ready. She’s ready for a man who takes an interest in her mental and emotional well-being. She’s ready for a man that can feel what she’s trying to say even when she’s not speaking…she’s ready.
“it has been one of the greatest and most difficult years of my life. I learned everything is temporary. moments. feelings. people. flowers. I learned love is about giving- everything- and letting it hurt. I learned vulnerability is always the right choice because it is easy to be cold in a world that makes it so very difficult to remain soft. I learned all things come in twos: life and death, pain and joy, sugar and salt, me and you. it is the balance of the universe. it has been the year of hurting so bad but living so good, making friends out of strangers, making strangers out of friends, learning [sweet tea] will fix just about everything and for the pains it can’t, there will always be my mother’s arms. We must learn to focus on warm energy, always. soak our limbs in it and become better lovers to the world, for if we can’t learn to be kinder to each other how will we ever learn to be kinder to the most desperate parts of ourselves.”
