you take care of everyone,
my love,
but who is taking care
of you?

Somedays I just don’t want to fight the battles with the pain anymore.

Above all else, we choose to stay. We choose to fight the darkness and the sadness, to fight the questions and the lies and the myth of all that’s missing. We choose to stay, because we are stories still going. Because there is still some time for things to turn around, time for surprises and for change. We stay because no one else can play our part.

- Jamie Tworkowski, “We’ll See You Tomorrow.”

Sometimes your heart needs more time to accept what your mind already knows.
Awesome quotes (via onlinecounsellingcollege)

What if we could embrace our vulnerabilities, insecurities, and doubts, instead of denying that they’re ultimately part of who we are…and acknowledging that they don’t make us any less able to be strong and overcome?

They say to listen to your heart, but somedays I hope it’s lying.

The past does not have to be your prison. You have a voice in your destiny. You have a say in your life. You have a choice in the path you take.
Max Lucado (via onlinecounsellingcollege)

Sometimes when you’re trying to be everyone else’s anchor, you don’t realize you’re actually drowning.

You may not see it today or tomorrow, but you will look back in a few years and be absolutely perplexed and awed by how every little thing added up and brought you somewhere wonderful - or where you always wanted to be. You will be grateful that things didn’t work out the way you once wanted them to.
