- Learn to put on your bracelets and zip up your dresses by yourself. There will be times when you will be alone.
- Get on a long plane ride. Look out the window. Understand the immensity of our world. Understand your insignificance. Understand your absolute importance.
- Press the send button. If you don’t say it now, you never will.
- Do not sneer at happiness or roll your eyes at sadness. Be aware that apathy is not healthy.
- You are more than the amount of people who want to have sex with you.
- That pit in your stomach when he doesn’t text you back, it shouldn’t be there. No one should be able to control you like that.
- Shopping is cathartic. Buy the shoes and deal with one-ply toilet paper for a while.
- It will get better, but it will never be perfect. Learn to live through the small moments of happiness. When they disappear, remember they will resurface.
- I promise that cookie will not change anything (except that it will make you smile).
- Please, please, take care of yourself. You are everything to somebody. You are everything to your self. That alone is enough.

"You still have a lot of time to make yourself be what you want."
An American soldier kisses his girlfriend goodbye at Penn Station, New York, 1944.
this is heartbreaking
Photos like this make me wonder: Did he live? Did he ever return home? Did they ever get married, start a family? Or did he die, and she was left to go on without him? As tragic as it seems, that happened so many times during WWII, and looking at these two, it makes you wonder if they were they any different. I really hope so; I hope they got their happy ending.
you and I think alike, tumblr user crescendowls
seeing this photo again and seeing where it was shot, I think now how many times I’ve walked where they kissed goodbye. How many times have I ran to catch a train, where people saw their husbands and wives for the last time.

I’m thankful for the choices I have made in the past that have pushed me to live and see the world a certain way. It hurts most when my view of life has altered and my important lesson from that is to accept it. It’s nice to hear someone appreciate my worth and effort considering all I ever wanted was for him to be happy. So it’s ok to keep missing me because in life that’s the way it goes. I can’t tell you exactly what my life will be like a few years from now and who I plan to spend my “forever” with but there are lessons behind my relationships.
