If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the years, it’s that it only takes one person, one patient, one moment to change your life forever, to change your perspective, colour your thinking. To force you to re-evaluate everything you think you know. To make you ask yourself the toughest questions: Do you know who you are? Do you know what’s happened to you? Do you want to live this way?

Do not wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles, and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.

Don’t you know better? Hearts are breakable. And I think even when you heal, you’re never what you were before.

You want me to be a tragic backdrop so that you can appear to be illuminated, so that people can say ‘Wow, isn’t he so terribly brave to love a girl who is so obviously sad?’ You think I’ll be the dark sky so you can be the star? I’ll swallow you whole.

I mention her name and the old pain returns. Forget her, you say? How can you forget a living human being?
Sholem Aleichem (via larmoyante)
Life is becoming increasingly hard. The most simple tasks… eating, drinking, showering, talking, breathing. Being awake is too much. It’s so strenuous. I cannot endure this. I would like to go to sleep, and never wake up. Being alive is much too difficult.

I met God. Who slowly, painfully and divinely pieced me back together.
A line from an old journal I found (via selahtime)

verrlust:

I hate when you’re sad for no reason; you’re with people, you’re fine, you’re happy, you’re laughing and smiling, but at the same time it almost feels like you’re not there. You keep dazing in and out of conversations, you cant focus on one single thing. And once you’re by yourself you don’t want to do anything, you’re sad and feel alone. Someone asks you what’s wrong and you want to tell them, but you don’t even know what’s wrong yourself.
