"Life is glorious, but life is also wretched. It is both. Appreciating the gloriousness inspires us, encourages us, cheers us up, gives us a bigger perspective, energizes us. We feel connected. But if that’s all that’s happening, we get arrogant and start to look down on others, and there is a sense of making ourselves a big deal and being really serious about it, wanting it to be like that forever. The gloriousness becomes tinged by craving and addiction. On the other hand, wretchedness—life’s painful aspect—softens us up considerably. Knowing pain is a very important ingredient of being there for another person. When you are feeling a lot of grief, you can look right into somebody’s eyes because you feel you haven’t got anything to lose—you’re just there. The wretchedness humbles us and softens us, but if we were only wretched, we would all just go down the tubes. We’d be so depressed, discouraged, and hopeless that we wouldn’t have enough energy to eat an apple. Gloriousness and wretchedness need each other. One inspires us, the other softens us. They go together."

Waaaaaaaaaaaa it hurts. I know my eye do not decieve me and it hurts to see those eyes. That way. It hurtttts. I want to retreat bc I know its not even worth mentioning. And then I remember. Hes a man.

" Wanna be lovedNot for who you think I amNor what you want me to beCould you love me for me?Real love, with no strings attachedI wanna give you me heartDon’t want to take it backThis is my chat-cho


Ive come to the realization that I dont think im human. I dont think of myself as someone who can truly make mistakes. Its not normal for me to do this many fucked up things in life and be who I am. But Symone,


This is you baby. This is a part of your past. That which makes you you.

It is what it fuck is babygirl
Done. Set in stone.
Not the end, but it is there.
The nicks at the bottom of your trunk.
The nicks at the bottom of your trunk.
