From a surprise lunch-ish/dinner, to tag/playtime and dress-up in target, to being with my ROD’s, and meeting new people and hanging out with old ones, and watching a movie on the beach AND on a good one. This day just came together so perfectly.. But even though it ended in a pretty shitty way I’m not gonna let that ruin how amazing today was.
“Don’t be so damn hard on yourself. Yeah, you screwed up. You’re not perfect, fine. Learn from it. But don’t punish yourself. Be kind to you, even when you screw up. You’ll bounce back eventually. You’ll make up for it.”—Stephanie Klein (via kari-shma)
“Be with her because you actually want to be with her, because you actually see a potential future with her, NOT because you are USED to being with her, NOT because you’re scared of the thought that being without her will RUIN you. The point of being in a relationship is to enjoy each others company, is to be there to support each other when you need it most. No one-person, defines who you are. They only compliment you.”—-MARVIN KING (via marvinking)
You said when the storm came, that you would be there with your umbrella to block the rain, and you said you’d protect me from heartache, pain, lies, loneliness, and misery
You said you’ll tear down the walls, that were in the way. You promise things would be okay. And I stood there in the freezing cold, and I waited for you but you never showed
because once the person got you, they stopped doing the things it took to get you. Occasionally we get caught in everyday routines. Even with the ones we love. In the beginning everything is so new and you are discoverinjg things about eachother and each thing is like a treasure hunt! And you’re trying to impress and do cool things together. But after years of being together, everyday life sets in. We no longer look to impress all the time because we are letting lifes everyday stuff take priority. You know the other person, know what to expect, know they are yours and so life sets in. Now you are suddenly schedule intimacy because you have stuff that has to get done and the excitement and spontenaity have disappeared.
And that’s where you have to step in and work with me.. When you still choose to hang out with your friends over me then you’re not working on making this relationship better at all! I’m tired of making decisions for you and leading you on the right path, you’re grown and I’ve told you how many times before that we need to make this work but I see now that every time I say that it goes in one ear and out the other, and quite frankly I’m over it..
You know those quotes that you hear once and they stay with you for the rest of your life? This is one of them: you can’t live in fear. Kudos to anyone who recognizes what movie that’s from. But you literally cannot. You can’t live your life if you are scared, you can’t fully experience all that life has to offer you if you’re too frightened to step out of your comfort zone. One of the things I’ve always taken pride in myself is that I’ve always been dominantly brave, and in the times I’m not I have always had the ability to conquer my fears. I’m talking about everything from the spiders on your wall that you can’t build up the nerve to kill to the people you can’t bear to love because it feels like they’re ripping your heart out of your chest. That’s what being alive is all about, is it not? Doing things you’ve never done before, seizing every moment, stepping into the dark unfamiliar territory and figuring it out as you go. Aside from that, when it comes down to it, my motto: replace the fear of the unknown with curiosity. What else can you really do?
