"Never expect someone to respect your feelings because you respect theirs. Never expect someone not to hurt you because you would never hurt them. Thats like sitting in a room full of lions and expecting them not to eat you because you don’t eat lion."
"I think the scariest thing about falling in love is that there’s always an opportunity to fall out of it. There is no signed contract, no promises that can’t be broken, no guarantees that that person will stick around and that scares me to death. One day, they can just wake up and be over your little weird habits, and the way you say the letter “I.” They’ll realize you’re selfish, they’ll realize they deserve so much more. And that’s the scariest thought I’ve ever had."
this is so personal i’m going to be sick (via brennanat)
Always weird to see my own writing on my dash. I just wanna say…when you meet the right person, this fear doesn’t really cross your mind. I wish that was the idea I put into people’s head. Not every story ends in tragedy.
"I’m always soft for you, that’s the problem. You could come knocking on my door five years from now and I would open my arms wider and say ‘come here, it’s been too long, it felt like home with you.’"
"Someone asked me what home was and all I could think of were the stars on the tip of your tongue, the flowers sprouting from your mouth, the roots entwined in the gaps between your fingers, the ocean echoing inside of your ribcage."
The next time a man starts yelling at you, cut him off and tell him you just can’t talk to him when he’s being so emotional.
I have done this and can confirm that is a LOT of fun to watch them implode afterward.
Bonus points: Tell them you think it’s cute when they get so angry.
