You don’t need anyone’s affection or approval in order to be good enough. When someone rejects or abandons or judges you, it isn’t actually about you. It’s about them and their own insecurities, limitations, and needs, and you don’t have to internalize that. Your worth isn’t contingent upon other people’s acceptance of you — it’s something inherent. You exist, and therefore, you matter. You’re allowed to voice your thoughts and feelings. You’re allowed to assert your needs and take up space. You’re allowed to hold onto the truth that who you are is exactly enough. And you’re allowed to remove anyone from your life who makes you feel otherwise.
― Daniell Koepke (via psych-facts)
You are a little soul carrying around a corpse.

Anonymous: How can I be happy??


I think by being true to yourself and following your heart. 

Anyone who has ever scanned the bookshelves of a new girlfriend or boyfriend- or peeked inside his or her medicine cabinet- understands this implicitly; you can learn as much - or more - from one glance at a private space as you can from hours of exposure to a public face.
― Malcolm Gladwell, Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking (via wordsnquotes)
Her lips are like the galaxy’s edge,
And her kiss the color of a constellation falling into place.
― from “Arabella” by Arctic Monkeys on AM (2013)
Baby, we both know that the nights were mainly made for saying things that you can’t say tomorrow day.
