“ You just like the idea of me. You like the person I present myself under circumstances that I can control. I choose what I say and how I say things. It’s like being attracted to a fictional character in a book. They are scripted and made up. If you think about it, through writings, we all script and make ourselves up. I don’t share the person I become when I am upset. I don’t show you how I look like when I sleep. I don’t tell you about all the times I’ve made someone cry. All the guilty things I’ve done and the bad thoughts I’ve had.
“ You are not the galaxy you are meant to break stars on your back and swallow planets whole; there’s no word great enough for what you are
— you’re more than a galaxy to me (via sexpansion)
“ افتح فمك فقط إن كان ما ستقوله أجمل من الصمت
Open your mouth only if what you are going to say is more beautiful than silence.
— Arabic Proverb (via bl-ossomed)
“ and if he wants to leave
then let him leave
you are terrifying
and strange and beautiful
something not everyone knows how to love
— Warsan Shire, For Women Who Are Difficult To Love
“ If you look at the fact that you have a roof over your head, food to eat, that you are young and beautiful and live in a peaceful land, then no, you have nothing to be sad about. But the fact is, we are not only a physical body, we have souls too, and sometimes our souls get sick. If you break a leg you don’t just say ‘I have no reason to have a broken leg’ and ignore it; you seek help. It’s the same when your soul gets hurt. Don’t apologize for being sad.
— My doctor when I told her I had no reason to be sad (via hrive-ithiliel)
