“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no-one but yourself and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”—(via eletheowl)
I just don’t get how some people can be so insincere. They say one thing, and do another. Actions speak louder than words, and I can be fooled by what you tell me? But I’m not blind. Sometimes, we ought to see far enough into a hypocrite to see even his sincerity.
Along the way, I’ve learned that you can’t let anyone in too far and you can’t trust endlessly. The biggest mistake you can make is to care or love someone more than yourself, because then you are just setting yourself up for disappointment. Boundaries are necessary so that you can protect yourself, because once you’re broken, you’ll never be fully fixed.
“Let me tell you this: if you meet a loner, no matter what they tell you, it’s not because they enjoy solitude. It’s because they tried to blend into the world before, and people continue to disappoint them.”—Jodi Picoult, My Sister’s Keeper (Submitted by: myheartspeaks) (via quote-book) (via maskedintentions) (via amrotica)
“And the truth is, there are no happy endings. If there were happy ending to happiness, it was never real. There is hope in every one of us, that we can find happiness. Maybe we will. But for most of us, happiness seems too far away. People spend their whole lives chasing after it when it should really be chasing after you.”—(via poeticheartache) (via hiblackbird)
“If i die tomorrow, there will be people who have totally different memories of me. To one person I might be the bitch who thought she was better. To another person I might be the ugliest person on this planet, to her I might be the gorgeous, lucky girl who she despised because I was spoiled rotten. To another girl I might be the girl who got really good grades, so jealousy erupted. To him I might be the girl with the annoying laugh. To another guy I could be remembered as the girl who wasn’t anything to him. Maybe I’ll be remembered as the girl who was always on her phone, or the girl my roommate disliked. But none of that matters. you know why? By my best friends I’ll be remembered as the girl with the contagious laugh and the girl they would go to if they ever needed anything. But most of all, I’ll be remembered by my enemies as the thing they couldn’t add up to.”—(via eletheowl)
