“Anyone who falls in love is searching for the missing pieces of themselves. So anyone who’s in love gets sad when they think of their lover. It’s like stepping back inside a room you have fond memories of, one you haven’t seen in a long time.”
— Haruki Murakami (via marymahayag)
“Try to love yourself as much as you want someone else to.”
— My English Teacher (via acceptvnce)
depression is only temporary darkness. everything is temporary. nothing is truly permanent. people die. memories fade. perspectives shift. so don’t worry, it will pass.
“Don’t think about what can happen in a month. Don’t think about what can happen in a year. Just focus on the 24 hours in front of you and do what you can to get closer to where you want to be.”
— Eric Thomas (via thatkindofwoman)
meeting someone with the same music taste is seriously the best thing ever
“How long has it been since someone touched part of you other than your body?”

“I am no expert on love, but I have a few suggestions to keeping your love alive.
1: Don’t fall asleep angry. But if you do, wake up in the middle of the night and hold her as close as you can.
2: Laugh during sex, especially if you bump heads. If you aren’t laughing, you’re with the wrong person.
3: If you don’t feel comfortable dancing naked with your partner and showing them your four chins when you laugh, you’re doing it wrong.
4: Romance isn’t for everyone, but a post-it note in their lunchbox telling them they’re the best will never go amiss.
5: Don’t cling to them at parties. Dance with friends and spend time with acquaintances, but wink at each other across the room.
6: Keep everything 50/50, or you will fall out of balance.
7: Stop comparing your relationship to others- you are you, don’t try to be someone else.
8: Be kind. Give them space when they need it, but be their home when they come back.
9: Be proud to love them.
10: Support them through whatever they do in life, even if it’s a stupid decision. People need to make their own mistakes, but be there if it falls apart, and never say ‘I told you so’.
And most of all, love with your whole heart, or don’t love at all.”
