You know when you've found it because you feel it when they take it away.
You'll be the high school heartache I'll tell my kids about.
Beauty without intelligence is a masterpiece painted on a napkin.
Leaving someone behind means you only want the best for them, even if it means swallowing the sad reality that the best just isn't you.
I have always lived violently, drunk hugely, eaten too much or not at all, slept around the clock or missed two nights of sleeping, worked too hard and too long in glory, or slobbed for a time in utter laziness. I've lifted, pulled, chopped, climbed, made love with joy and taken my hangovers as a consequence, not as a punishment.
And unless you marry your high school sweetheart (and even sometimes then), there is usually a not-so-glorious back story. There are people and places and events that lead you to your final relationship, people and places and events you'd prefer to forget or at least gloss over. In the end, you can slap a pretty label on it- like serendipity or fate. Or you can believe that it's just the random way life unfolds.
This year will be no different than last year. Except we are older, and more aware of our failures and lack of accomplishments. Hooray.
None of us wanted to grow up. Because you stop and take a look around. Everything is different. You hear it all the time, but that's the only way to describe it. People are no longer there, and the pain. We didn't know the price, that was the problem. Growing up had a price. Un-refundable, unforgettable, underestimated. Maybe if we'd known, things would be different. Instead of looking to the future with eyes wide open, we would have lingered in our innocence, observing and finding fascination in the simplest joys of life
Do not let your feelings of momentary irritation and discomfort be seen by others. Don’t let every little feeling be read on your face and be seen in your manner.
Accept what people offer. Drink their milkshakes. Take their love.
We should all start to live before we get too old. Fear is stupid. So are regrets.
I know it seems like I'm this strong girl who can get through anything, but inside I'm very fragile.
All your life you are told the things you cannot do. All your life they will say you're not good enough or strong enough or talented enough; they will say you're the wrong height or the wrong weight or the wrong type to play this or be this or achieve this. They will tell you no, a thousand times no, until all the no's become meaningless. All your life they will tell you no, quite firmly and very quickly. And you will tell them yes.
Being a bitch means: I stand up for myself and my beliefs. I stand up for those I love. I speak my mind, think my own thoughts or do things my way. I won't compromise what's in my heart, I live my life my way. I won't allow anyone to step on me, I refuse to tolerate injustice. It means I have the courage and strength to allow myself to be me. So try to stomp on, douse my inner flame, squash every ounce of beauty I hold within. You won't succeed. And if that makes me a bitch, so be it.
