“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.”—John Lennon (via kushandwizdom)
“It’s not just about sex. Don’t get me wrong. Sex is fucking great, but when you have a connection with someone, when you feel so strong for someone, just a kiss is enough to make your knees weak. You just can’t beat that.”—(via laurenraelle)

“Did you know that for pretty much the entire history of the human species, the average life span was less than thirty years? You could count on ten years or so of real adulthood, right? There was no planning for retirement, There was no planning for a career. There was no planning. No time for plannning. No time for a future. But then the life spans started getting longer, and people started having more and more future. And now life has become the future. Every moment of your life is lived for the future—you go to high school so you can go to college so you can get a good job so you can get a nice house so you can afford to send your kids to college so they can get a good job so they can get a nice house so they can afford to send their kids to college.”—John Green, Paper Towns (via feellng)

When I was a little girl, I saw the boy I liked kiss the new girl and I latched my teeth into my wrist and screamed. I didn’t think it would hurt,
but it did and I could feel the vibrations of my voice running through my bones and my frozen heart caught on fire and that was the first time I heard things that were so suddenly
haunting in my head and the day he wrapped his arms around my bruised waist,
all purples and blues flew away in a cloud of butterflies and I went home and whispered “I love him,” to my mother
and she couldn’t help but run her fingers through my hair and laugh.
When I was a little girl, I saw my best friend laughing with a tall boy with shrugged shoulders
and I couldn’t help but wonder who he was. I called her that night and she talked about him for hours and I smiled as I tasted salt water trickle into my mouth, but
I laughed at the things she thought I would find funny and I told her they looked cute together. When the call ended,
I felt snakes awaken in my stomach and I remembered
the first time I felt that way with you and as her lips curled up into a smile, my lips were kissing my wrist
with each tooth sinking into my flesh followed by screams just as
loud as last time.
I am a little a girl and today I saw you walking with a pretty girl and I latched my teeth into my wrist
and I heard the words you used to tell me slide off your tongue right before
yours intertwined with hers.
You told me I was yours and I wanted to believe you, but
I’ve seen my uncle kiss anonymous cheeks and I’ve been scared out of my fucking
mind of anything that makes me feel
a little less cold ever since you let me glance at your eyes. I saw you touch her arm
where you used to touch mine, and look at her the way you used to look at me and as I was screaming into my flesh,
I remembered every time I talked to you about my trust issues.
