I already know where this is headed and I want no part in it.

There’s so much more to life than finding someone who will want you, or being sad over someone who doesn’t. There’s a lot of wonderful time to be spent discovering yourself without hoping someone will fall in love with you along the way, and it doesn’t need to be painful or empty. You need to fill yourself up with love. Not anyone else. Become a whole being on your own. Go on adventures, fall asleep in the woods with friends, wander around the city at night, sit in a coffee shop on your own, write on bathroom stalls, leave notes in library books, dress up for yourself, give to others, smile a lot. Do all things with love, but don’t romanticize life like you can’t survive without it. Live for yourself and be happy on your own. It isn’t any less beautiful, I promise.

Stars are not small or gentle.
They are writhing and dying and burning.
They are not here to be pretty.
I am trying to learn from them.

So, do it. Decide. Is this the life you want to live? Is this the person you want to love? Is this the best you can be? Can you be stronger? Kinder? More Compassionate? Decide. Breathe in. Breathe out and decide Meredith Grey   (via 1112pm)

You’re not there yet

but you’re so much farther than you were. Even if it doesn’t seem that way, keep that in mind.

Today I had to step back, recollect and remember things for what they are now. You are not entitled to feel anyway nor should you. This feeling was all too familiar to me, like it never left. Entirely too unsettling and upsetting for my head. I pulled myself back into a feeling that I’d forgotten, but in an instant this wave of emotion hit me. Fuck.

Get it together.
This isn’t something I’d ever even entertain at this point. 

Fuck

It’s honestly not like I’m looking for something in anyone. I’ve enjoyed the company of really cool people but no one gets me like you did. That kind of connection is so hard to come by and I don’t think that I’ll have that again. I know everything we had wasn’t perfect in the least bit but damn did I feel something strong. It’s so hard to make me feel anything anymore
