“1) You never will be good enough for your parents, so quit trying to please them. 2) Quit being so timid, or you might miss out on a lot. 3) Learn to love yourself as you are, or you will end up in dark places. 4) Don’t be afraid to love someone else. 5) Appreciate the little things. The small drawings people make. The sounds of your cousins giggling. They make life slightly more colorful. 6) Protect your friends. Surprisingly enough, they need you. 7) Quit lying. It’ll lead you to some dangerous situations. 8) Stop hiding your emotions. You aren’t a robot, no matter what you say. 9) Confidence is the key to unlock your full potential. 10) Be happy you are alive.”
drakesthenate, writing prompt #62 : list 10 pieces of advice you’d give yourself (via wnq-writers)
have you ever been hurt so much you feel it's changed you as a person?🥀⠀
“ Love someone who doesn’t see your struggles as an inconvenience. Someone who doesn’t feel pestered by your problems because they know your problems aren’t something you asked for or ever wanted. Someone who understands that if you could make these bad things go away, you could. Love that person. The person who won’t quit. The person who won’t make you feel bad for feeling lost, or alone, or tired. Who won’t guilt you for not feeling like yourself. Love someone who just wants to help, someone who won’t stop loving you when they realize maybe they can’t. Love someone who doesn’t force you to be anyone other than who you really are, even if some days you don’t know who that person is. Someone who knows when your happiness is genuine. When your smile happens just because something was so light and joyous that it made you forget about all of your troubles for just a moment. Love someone who brings that smile out of you. Love someone who can make you happy for just a second in the hours you feel your worst. Love that person. Love someone who is there for you. Someone who knows the difference between saying they’ll be there, and actually doing it. Love someone who keeps their promises, someone who doesn’t make them if they know they can’t be kept. Love that person. The person who isn’t in and out of your life, but the person who stayed. Because when someone wants to be with you, they will be, and while love has its difficulties, real love happens simply. Real love is felt without doubts, without second guessing. It’s felt with certainty and comfort. Real love is the person who won’t give up on you, the person who loves you so incredibly much, they wouldn’t even know how. Love that person. “
do you believe in soulmates?🥀
i wasn’t afraid of you losing interest or of the other girls or of the games we played. i didn’t sweep them under the rug; i swept you out from over it. i thought i could force you to feel something when i was falling over on the kitchen floor again and when i couldn’t bear to open my mouth and we sat in silence for a month again and it didn’t matter that you were empty because i knew when you saw me shaking, you’d tend to me like a bruise.
i wasn’t afraid of you not loving me because you already didn't and okay, maybe you did at one time or for one moment or in your own way, but if you really loved me in the way i deserved to be loved, you would have never treated me in this way.
it never really mattered though because i was so happy, i couldn’t see straight, and really what i was the most afraid of wasn’t you not loving me; it was me never finding someone else who i could love this much, who creates this whirlwind within me, this love that radiates through my whole body. you made my heart shake and my knuckles soft and even though i don’t miss you anymore, i still miss the feelings you gave me.
why did you have to go? i hope you’re doing well without me and finding real pleasure and not fucking other girls over, but i know in your emptiness, you don’t know anything different and it just makes me sad to know i wasted so much of my heart on somebody who couldn’t fill the hole back in and now i wonder if this is how emptiness is made to begin with.
if not you, then who?
