"Nothing can wear you out like caring about people."
S.E. Hinton, That Was Then, This Is Now (via whitebeyonce)
"Admit it. You aren’t like them. You’re not even close. You may occasionally dress yourself up as one of them, watch the same mindless television shows as they do, maybe even eat the same fast food sometimes. But it seems that the more you try to fit in, the more you feel like an outsider, watching the “normal people” as they go about their automatic existences. For every time you say club passwords like “Have a nice day” and “Weather’s awful today, eh?”, you yearn inside to say forbidden things like “Tell me something that makes you cry” or “What do you think deja vu is for?”. Face it, you even want to talk to that girl in the elevator. But what if that girl in the elevator (and the balding man who walks past your cubicle at work) are thinking the same thing? Who knows what you might learn from taking a chance on conversation with a stranger? Everyone carries a piece of the puzzle. Nobody comes into your life by mere coincidence. Trust your instincts. Do the unexpected. Find the others."
Timothy Leary (via impetrate)
"Just because you miss someone, it doesn’t mean you should go back to them. Sometimes you have to just keep missing them until you wake up one morning and realise that you don’t anymore."
Unknown (via maytheodds)
"The truth is, sometimes too much can happen in a relationship, and then there’s nothing anyone can do or say. It’s broken."
"It bothers me that no one has the patience to deal with someone who is just sad."
Emily Haines (via gracefully-found)
- Europeans: I drove forty minutes to the Netherlands for some groceries and then I popped into Germany to see some of my relatives before driving back home.
- Americans: I was in Florida, I drove for nine hours, now I'm still in Florida.
- #australians: i drove for nine hours #now i'm nine hours away from home #no one is here #the streets are empty #how did this happen #where has civilisation gone #i am alone in the universe #oh wait no there's an echidna it's okay
- Canadians: We left Toronto 2 days ago, We are still in Ontario, food is scarce. We are lost, soon we will have to eat each other to survive, oh wait there's a tims we're good.
- Russians: I was in Yakutia, I drove for twenty eight hours, now I'm still in Yakutia, I travelled by train for 6 days, I'm still in Russia. Don't even try to leave Russia. Don't forget: you're here forever. Accept it and suffer.
"Sometimes I remind myself that I almost skipped the party, that I almost went to a different college, that the whim of a minute could have changed everything and everyone. Our lives, so settled, so specific, are built on happenstance."
Every Last One (Anna Quindlen)
in case you were wondering, i’m not doing okay. my insides feel like they’re rotting and my head never stops spinning. i wish there was a way to make all of this shit stop.
in case you were wondering, i still think about death. i know i said i’ve gotten better, but i lied. i didn’t mean to deceive you. i really thought i was alright again.
in case you were wondering, i’ve lost most of my friends. they’ve either gotten tired of me or replaced me with someone better. i don’t really blame them, because i wouldn’t want me either.
in case you were wondering, i haven’t slept in weeks. i lay in bed and close my eyes but this tiredness never leaves me. i just feel so drained all of the time and i don’t know what to do.
in case you were wondering, i don’t forgive you. i never will forgive you. you can apologize to me a million times but i will never forget how you ripped the life and innocence right out of me.
i’m trying, i really am. i’m trying so hard to get better and feel alive again. but i just feel so empty and dead inside, no matter how hard i try to fix myself. i guess i’ll just hurt like this forever."
