Be happy for no reason, like a child. If you are happy for a reason, you’re in trouble, because that reason can be taken from you.

Of all the people I’ve lost,
I miss myself the most.

The only people I would care to be with now are artists and people who have suffered: those who know what beauty is, and those who know what sorrow is: nobody else interests me.

When you know who you are, you don’t look to the world to tell you. Similarly, you don’t fear other people since they cannot take anything from you.

Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts, and don’t put up with people that are reckless with yours.

Cake or collar bones dry thinning hair??

Pizza or a thigh gap dry peeling skin??
Ice cream or hip bones dull eyes??
Food or a nice body death??

Think before you eat encourage others to throw their lives away by posting your pro-ana shit all over the internet where vulnerable naive teenagers can read and imitate your illness

this needs more notes

Dear future child
If it’s 3am and you find yourself in a world of complete despair
Please do not turn to strangers on the internet for solace as I did
Please climb onto my bed
And I will hold you until the demons sleep
If it is Thursday morning and you are too sad to move
I won’t force you
I will buy ice cream and we will watch your favourite tv show and I will remind you of your importance
If you feel as if you have no purpose
I will remind you that you were created entirely with love and every pain you feel, I feel too
When you’re sure you can’t go on anymore
I will tell you that when I was 21 I searched for peace at the bottom of a vodka bottle chased by a bottle of pain killers
But that five years later
When you were placed in my arms in the delivery room
I realised that you were why I had been holding on
Without realising it, you saved me, do you know how amazing that is?
So if you ever feel like grabbing that vodka bottle, put it down, we will get in the car and I will drive until the sky turns magenta
I will show you how the sun rises every morning to encourage you to rise too
Sweetheart I refuse to be unaware of your sufferings
As my mother was to mine.
Your mental health is my priority. (via be-fearless-brave-and-kind)

I love you, but I’m mad at you is one of the most freeing, important things you can say in a stable relationship. Does that make sense? To know that you have the ability and the right to be mad at someone and know that it doesn’t mean things are over, that it doesn’t mean things are irreparable. That it just means I’m mad, but God, I love you. I love you. Now leave me alone.

1. Being able to say “I’m sorry” is a skill, and one that not a lot of people possess. Hone that skill. Apologizing shouldn’t be followed by “but here’s why I did it” or “and then you did this”. An apology is you taking responsibility for hurting someone else, not a notch on a scorecard in some bizarro battle of “Who’s Right?”

The problem with trauma is that you believe you are 99% made of your rapist. There is only 1% of you left. In reality, however, you are actually 100% yourself. And how sad it is we have been swallowed and sacrificed by a cruel fraction.

When I say that I am hurting
I don’t expect you to be able
to do anything about it
because I am hurting the way in which
the bones of the chronically ailing ache
the way in which a primate bashes its confined head
against barred barricades of walls,
when I say I am hurting
I mean I am missing my pulse.
I am not asking you
to find it.
Just listen and know
of its absence.
