I like it when it rains hard. It sounds like white noise everywhere, which is like silence but not empty.
You brave, brave thing.
One day, you’re going to
stop leaving the door open
for people who only know how
to keep leaving.
You are not designed for everyone to like you.
A healthy relationship is one where two independent people just make a deal that they will help make the other person the best version of themselves.
How you make others feel about themselves says a lot about you.
The most beautiful people we have known are those who have
known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss,
and have found their way out of the depths. These persons
have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of
life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep
loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.
