You were alive before they came around, so don’t let them stop you from living again. Just because they didn’t want you, doesn’t mean you are unwanted. Just because they didn’t want forever with you, doesn’t mean you don’t deserve a forever. Just because love wasn’t written for you both, doesn’t mean your life is written with any less love.

You are going to breathe again, because they might have taken the breath from you, but they can’t take the rest of you.

– T.B. LaBerge // Unwritten Letters to You 

“Sometimes you climb out of bed in the morning and you think, I’m not going to make it, but you laugh inside — remembering all the times you’ve felt that way.”

– Charles Bukowski

 

 

There’s no one to kick me while I’m down
No one to burn my bridges anymore.

 

 

“Date a boy who makes you happy, but marry him only if he makes you laugh deep-belly rumbles that hurt your ribs as they expand outwards. Date him when he sees that you’re hurting and he gives you a moment to feel that pain like a hand print spreading across your consciousness, marry him only if he can make you smile even while you’re gross sobbing. The world is not a kind place. You will feel a lot of pain. Make sure you are with someone who makes it all bearable. Humor is an excellent gauge of intelligence. Life gets boring. Find someone who makes the banal interesting.”

The Right Man You Should Date or Marry 

 

 

“Stay away from people who make you feel like you are hard to love.”

“Do not chase people. Be you and do your own thing and work hard. The right people who belong in your life will come to you, and stay.”
