8:08pm "Often, I feel that I disappoint too many people for not being able to accept my full potential. Of failing to see myself through their eyes. Of not acknowledging my worth because I’ve been told many times long ago, that I wasn’t worth the effort by the wrong people. For many years, I’ve held myself accountable for all the poor choices done towards me shoving aside my need for reassurance, and dealing with the guilt of not being enough. For years, I believed that I had to apologize to people for what they thought of me. And now I’m finally learning that I need to forgive myself for that. I need to learn to forgive myself for feeling bad that other people can’t appreciate me for what I am."
Keen Malasarte, Only when I learn to love myself, will they value me. And I’m not really sure how long that’s going to take. (via acupofkeen)

12:41pm "Never settle with anyone who tells you to stop being so excited, to cheer up, to calm down, to stop feeling sad, or to stay positive. You are allowed to feel different things. You are allowed to feel everything. Anything. All of it. And you should be with someone who cherishes and respects that, no matter what."

Albert Camus, The Fall
9:12pm "It’s all about falling in love with yourself and sharing that love with someone who appreciates you, rather than looking for love to compensate for a self love deficit."
Eartha Kitt  (via katelouisepowell)

People say that only you control how you feel and that nobody else can. But when the person controlling you takes up 80% of your heart, that 20% that belongs to you literally feels nonexistent. This is why I hate love. It makes you vulnerable to all sorts of emotions, feelings, damage, and negativity.



I think one of the saddest things is when two people really get to know each other: their secrets, their fears, their favourite things, what they love, what they hate, literally everything, and then they go back to being strangers. It’s like you have to walk past them and pretend like you never knew them, never even talked to them before, when really, you know everything about them.



Have you ever fall in actual love, the love where you get sick from not seeing them? Have you ever fallen in love where even if there are a million reasons to leave you look for the reason to stay? Have you ever had your life so dependent on a person you literally do not know where you would be without them? Because I sure know these feelings.

5:36pm "What if she was meant to be, or could have been, someone important in my life? I think that’s what scares me: the randomness of everything. That the people who could be important to you might just pass you by. Or you pass them by."
