“This is for all the people I’ll never meet. This is for the person I might have kissed had I taken a different subway line on Saturday and the person I might have been if that boy hadn’t broken my mother’s teenage heart. This is for the people I would have loved if last winter hasn’t been so cold and for the city I would have called home if I had written haikus on napkins and carried pens in dress pockets and in the knots of my hair. This is for who I was, who I am, who I might be. This is for you.”—Camryn Pulaski (via modernhepburn)
I know it’s only been days, I know people get through these things all the time, I know my hurt and emptiness is so insignificant compared to so many others’, but I am not feeling very confident about this whole moving on thing. What an idiot I am, really.
“There is nothing more beautiful than seeing a person being themselves. Imagine going through your day being unapologetically you.”—Steve Maraboli, “Life, the Truth, and Being Free” (via stephontherun)
“The (500) Days of Summer attitude of “He wants you so bad” seems attractive to some women and men, especially younger ones, but I would encourage anyone who has a crush on my character to watch it again and examine how selfish he is. He develops a mildly delusional obsession over a girl onto whom he projects all these fantasies. He thinks she’ll give his life meaning because he doesn’t care about much else going on in his life. A lot of boys and girls think their lives will have meaning if they find a partner who wants nothing else in life but them. That’s not healthy. That’s falling in love with the idea of a person, not the actual person.”—Joseph Gordon-Levitt (x)
