“young girl with red eyes and nose, broken gaze and weight of the world resting on her hunched shoulder. the mirror reflected back to me: sadness, loneliness, and above all fear coming from the other side of the door. fear that comes from the very core of my thoughts, imagining i will become a mother. to think one day my demons might reign on my children by night, like the demons that are children before me, raised by my parents, and stripped me away piece by piece as we grew up side by side. i stared at my reflection, “you will never have to go through that.” i said not to myself, but to the future boy or girl who i will carry on my arms and love more than anything else in this world. hoping they’ll never have to inherit their parents’ demons except the ones they’ll have to fight on their own. hoping i’ll learn how to create love, love that came within me and around me so they’ll never have to wonder what it is. to let them see what’s in front of a mirror the way i wish i could see it now; love that can be seen, love that can be touched, love that can be cherished for generations to come.” - Via a-quietsoul on Tumblr | — i hope my broken pieces won’t have to touch you, love. 🌹
““How have you been?” For most people, it’s a simple and casual thing to say to a friend. But I never knew it was that overwhelming to hear. That those words alone were enough to make these tears you’ve been doing so good on holding back, spill uncontrollably and tear down your mask as you try to gather yourself and try to explain everything and never even knowing how to start. And I guess for some, it’s not a simple question. Because there are some who are aching to be asked those simple words. Those words that have become so casual that sometimes we tend to forget to ask that to a friend whenever we see them. So now I ask you, How have you been?” - Via fueledbysadness on Tumblr | how have you been? // stories behind wet pillows #30 🥀
“I have always believed that it takes two people to mess up a relationship. Whether it’s a father and a daughter two friends or two lovers. The blame can never be put on just one person because there are two sides to every story and neither of them are the Truth.” - via arivers610 on Tumblr 🌹
You know you’ve felt it. That rush that comes from your uncaging. Heels parked as soon as apartment door is thrown open, bare soles on wooden floor. The stretch of arms and legs upon waking up, before a nap, while tucked into bed before falling asleep. Locking the door and finally getting to read. Locking the door and finally getting to have sex while the kids sleep.  It’s the rush you feel when you see that “You’re leaving (insert place)” sign. The pounding in your heart as the plane takes off. It’s letting your tears out in the shower, in the rain, in the middle of the train during rush hour because you‘ve had it with holding it in. It’s taking off your bra after a long day. Oh yes.  Your first bike. Your first car. Your first trip alone. Your own room. Your own home. Finally fitting into your own skin.  You know you’ve felt it. It’s the rush that comes from unleashing your thoughts, your soul, your feet, your eyes, your hands, your you. It’s the rush that comes from your uncaging. Freedom. It is yours. Claim it. - via september-stardust on Tumblr 🌹
"Waking up every morning without you in my life would be a tragedy and don’t know how to imagine myself without you. Think of me as weird and obsessed like I know you do but as long as you know how I actually feel about you, you will never wanna let me go. From our fun times together to our little bickering and fights I just need to let you know that I love you no matter what. I wanna spend my summer with you and no other person and go to the beach at night to lay on a blanket and watch the sunset to going to theme parks and trampoline parks and to walk on he beach on our six months together and to cuddle all night long to watching how I met your mother to going on water slides high or drunk just to get off to hear my screaming of you dying of laughter and seeing ur gorgeous smile. I want the best for us and I think the best for us is to just stay together and always work out our problems together I can never say that I haven’t imagined myself without u cause I can’t at this very moment in time and I am very content with our relationship and how it’s been going lately.  I love you  and only want the best for you and our relationship and I think the best is to stay together and spend our summers together." - via dearsuggestions on Tumblr | How I feel about you 🌹
"The difference between a ride-or-die good girl and a here-for-the-time being bad girl is that one has your best interest at heart and the other has their own. When you’ve got a girl who packs you lunches and calls you out on your bad habits and mellows you out, don’t lose her. You’ll get stuck with the girl who encourages your bad habits and turns you into someone you never wanted to be." - Via scpiosexual on Tumblr 🌹
"She had tears in her eyes as she sat packing her bags, trying not to look at the person she was leaving behind. “I’m terrified” she began. “I’m so scared that the second I walk out of here and move away that it will be the last time I see you. I don’t want that.” He sat in silence as she continued, her voice breaking. “What if you meet someone else, what if the distance breaks us? What do I tell people, do I tell them we’re together or do I tell them I’m single? We never put a label on it. How do I know what you’re thinking when you never tell me and how will I ever guess when I can’t read your face? I’m petrified that this is the end, is it?” He took the silence as an opportunity to grab her and kiss her. “I love you” he began. “The distance won’t break us, you’re going to go and have an amazing time and not worry about any of this and I’ll come and visit you at every opportunity, you can come and stay with me and I’ll come to you, this is the best thing to happen to you and you know how much I care for you, I would never hurt you, there is no girl in the world that could ever replace you and I have nothing inside of me that even believes in the slightest that I could ever cheat or be with someone else after getting to know your heart, fuck, I love you, don’t you know that?” They sat on her bedroom floor together holding each other for what felt like forever, wishing that they never had to be apart at all, but knowing that she had to go." - via your-life-over--mine on Tumblr | the situation and conversation I wish we could have but know we never will 🥀
“One of the most amazing things that can happen is finding someone who sees everything you are and won’t let you be anything less. They see the potential of you. They see endless possibilities. And through their eyes, you start to see yourself the same way. As someone who matters. As someone who can make a difference in this world.” - Susane Colasanti | So Much Closer 🌹
“He knew why he wanted to kiss her. Because she was beautiful. And before that, because she was kind. And before that, because she was smart and funny. Because she was exactly the right kind of smart and funny. Because he could imagine taking a long trip with her without ever getting bored. Because whenever he saw something new and interesting, or new and ridiculous, he always wondered what she’d have to say about it–how many stars she’d give it and why.” — Rainbow Rowell | Attachments 🌹
“I promise myself I will never become addicted to anyone. Because the thing with addiction is you no longer use the drug to get high, you get to a point where you need to use it daily just to function, just to feel normal. And I do not want to need anyone in my life to be able to function. I will crave you, I will want you, I will desire you, but I will never need you. You will never become my daily habit, but I will choose you over and over again. You will be my daily choice, always.” - via sweethoneydew on Tumblr 🌹
"When I met you, it felt as if I had discovered fire. I was so excited. Everything felt surreal. There was a whole new world to discover. You shone light. I felt alive, so exhilarated. You radiated warmth. I felt warm, so comfortable. But, I was cautious not to get too close because I didn't want to get hurt. I didn't want to get burned.  My excitement overcame my fears and I played with my discovery. I threw myself into the unknown; I reveled, I celebrated, I explored. I let my guard down and allowed myself to be vulnerable. I was full of joy. I danced, and danced, and danced as if the moment I was in was eternal and nothing could touch me. I danced so close to the fire. I could feel the heat against my skin. And I let it touch me. It hurt so much. It was too much. And it was too late. The fire consumed me. It was so painful. It was agony. It took the breath out of me. I could feel it take my soul, my very essence. It took my life.  But I emerged, and I discovered I was still alive. The fire had not touched me. It had only burned. It had burned everything that I wasn't. And I came out, not damaged, not broken, but whole and more alive than ever before. My love overcame my fears. And I discovered fire cannot burn fire. Light cannot put out light. When light meets more light, it illuminates the darkness... and I discovered this when I met you. There is nothing to fear." - Samantha Camargo 🌹
“Hold hands. Not mindlessly, but really hold your partner’s hand. Be forever grateful to be able to intertwine your fingers with theirs, skin against skin… feeling the heat that your hands create together… feeling the powerful intimacy created from one simple gesture.” —  Samantha Camargo | How to stay in the “honeymoon phase” #6 🌹
"It’s beautiful when you find someone that is in love with your mind. Someone that wants to undress your conscience and make love to your thoughts. Someone that wants to watch you slowly take down all the walls you’ve built up around your mind and let them inside." 🌹
"But how can you miss someone when they are right beside you?" She asks. “You can,” I say, “you can. When they are beside you but they are not yours. When they can leave without a moment’s notice and you do not have the right to ask them to stay." - Sue Zhao 🥀
"hey honey the clock stops around you. did you know that? i mean when the air sucks out of the room i always know to turn to you. i been up and down and out of my mind and every place i ran to was a place you knew how to find. i’m saying that i didn’t get the point of poetry until i heard it falling from your lips. you bright light, ink child, daughter of the sun who cracked open my ribs and called down “are you home” and woke up love. i wanna tattoo the moon phases on my palm so i always have your number so i can call you at midnight and ask “is this art or what” and you can come over and cup your hands and make stuff glow like you’re so good at. you could turn a weed into a wildflower patch, take your sorrow and turn it gentle on everybody who visits; fixed me in a poem and held yourself over my lips and made sense of all of it." - via inkskinned on Tumblr 🌹
"Friendly reminder: • being friends with someone is not a ‘step down’ from being in a romantic relationship • friendships are just as important as romantic relationships • friendships can be as intimate as romantic relationships (just in different ways) • it is normal, and actually, a wonderful thing to be affectionate with your friends, and to tell them you love them." - via etudiegogh on Tumblr 🌹
“you continue to exist, even after it ended. without them. breathing, hoping, living. do you not see that heartbreak was not the end of you? it was only the reminder you needed to know that you will continue to bloom, even if they don’t water your roots and appreciate your petals.” - via iambrillyant on Tumblr 🌻
"Things that make people feel loved: • making them a playlist • baking them cookies • giving them flowers • creating art for them • random reminders that they are loved • writing them a poem • complimenting them on their talents • asking how their day was • sending them links to things you think they will like • random hugs • “This made me think of you”" - via desultory-suggestions on Tumblr 💫
