YOU DON’T OWE YOUR PARENTS ANYTHING
IT WAS THEIR CHOICE TO HAVE, KEEP AND RAISE YOU BUT IT WASN’T YOUR CHOICE TO BE THEIR CHILD
ANY EXPECTATIONS OR IDEALS THEY TRY AND ENFORCE ON YOU ARE BULLSHIT IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THEM
THEY SHOULD ACCEPT THEIR CHILD AS THEY ARE NOT JUDGE THEM ON A MINOR DETAIL THAT DOESN’T AFFECT THEIR LIFE
DO NOT FEEL BAD IF YOU AREN’T THE PERFECT CHILD YOUR PARENTS THINK YOU SHOULD BE
"The fact that you’re struggling doesn’t make you a burden. It doesn’t make you unlovable or undesirable or undeserving of care. It doesn’t make you too much or too sensitive or too needy. It makes you human. Everyone struggles. Everyone has a difficult time coping, and at times, we all fall apart. During these times, we aren’t always easy to be around and that’s okay. No one is easy to be around one hundred percent of the time. Yes, you may sometimes be unpleasant or difficult. And yes, you may sometimes do or say things that make the people around you feel helpless or sad. But those things aren’t all of who you are and they certainly don’t discount your worth as a human being. The truth is that you can be struggling and still be loved. You can be difficult and still be cared for. You can be less than perfect, and still be deserving of compassion and kindness."
i wanna die but maybe something cool will happen so ill stay alive for now
This silly thought has kept me alive in many situations. Might help some of you too.
… Cool stuff really has happened.
The older I get the more I realise there are no grown ups and nobody knows what the fuck they’re doing.
"I get really tired. Sometimes I believe the lie that it would be better for everyone somehow if I just stopped, just slept, just was done. The thing I’ve discovered is that the tiredness, just like the moments of ecstasy, will pass. You won’t always feel like this. You wake up, you’ll be high again on this roller coaster we call life, and you’ll hit that low again, too. You just hold on and remind yourself the demons have a demon too, and they only win if you allow it. Don’t allow it."
"Once you pass a certain age, life becomes nothing more than a process of continual loss. Things that are important to your life begin to slip out of your grasp, one after another, like a comb losing teeth. And the only things that come to take their place are worthless imitations."
"Nobody can save you but yourself — and you’re worth saving. It’s a war not easily won, but if anything is worth winning — this is it."
