You can always tell who the strong women are.

You can always tell who the strong women are. They are the ones you see building each other up, instead of tearing each other down. 


Real friends

As we go through life, we start to understand that it's not important to have a lot of friends. What truly matters is that we have real friends.


Be with someone who makes the sun shine a little brighter.

Be with someone who will watch your favorite movies with you.

Be with someone who makes you laugh until your stomach hurts.

Be with someone who makes you tea when you’re sick or feeling down.

Be with someone who makes the sun shine a little brighter.

Be with someone who makes you want to be a better person.

Be with someone who enhances your life.


Love Message | I want to kiss you all day everyday.

I want to kiss you all day everyday. I want to hold your hand when we go walking. I love looking into your eyes as you look into mine. I smile every time I see you smile. My god I’m so in love with you. Each moment spent with you means everything to me. I hate when I’m away from you. I love the feeling I get when you wrap your arms around me and I like how you smile when I pull you closer. Being in your arms cuddling together watching the world go by is just beautiful to me, I could do it forever. I just want to be with you.



You know you really miss someone when..

You know you really miss someone when you crave something so simple such as the sound of their voice.


I will never crawl to you.

I will never crawl to you. I will never buckle my knees for you or for anyone else. I will never give you more than the roll of my eyes, the hard turn of my back, like a door being slammed, a book being closed after the last disappointing chapter.

I've said it a million times and my voice will never waiver as I say it a million more. I have given you all that I have. You're not getting the cold, empty room of me that still stands because it stands with only one brick of slap-stick love. That's all I have left of me and whatever it takes, I will rebuild that empty room into a home and I promise you will not be getting a key.

Tell me

Tell me, How many times have you lost your voice to someone who isn't even listening?~Kat Savage


Don’t get stuck. Move, travel, take a class, take a risk.

Don’t get stuck. Move, travel, take a class, take a risk. There is a season for wildness and a season for settledness, and this is neither. This season is about becoming. Don’t lose yourself at happy hour, but don’t lose yourself on the corporate ladder either. Stop every once in a while and go out to coffee or climb in bed with your journal. Now is your time. Walk closely with people you love. Don’t get stuck in the past, and don’t try to fast-forward yourself into a future you haven’t yet earned. Give today all the love and intensity and courage you can, and keep traveling honestly along life’s path.

– Shauna Niequist


I have always liked my people a bit damaged.

I have always liked my people a bit damaged. A bit rough around the edges. A bit difficult to stereotype. A bit stranger than the normal crowd. I like people whose eyes tell stories and whose smiles have fought through wars. If you’re perfect, chances are, we aren’t going to get on. If you’re one of the cool kids, chances are, you won’t like me. You see, what I want is authentic. What I want to see is your purity, I want to see the way you wear your scars, I want to see how brave you are with your vulnerability, how emotionally naked do you let the world see you. Your damage may not be beautiful, but it has made you exquisite. It makes you original, different - and one of my kind of people because people like you are the most incredible things about this world.

Women Who Hurt Other Women

There are women who make other women feel awful because of their own insecurities. They practice cliquishness and alienation. They choose to belittle and slut shame and gossip and practice passive aggressions when they should be looking at their own pettiness and understanding where it stems from. To these women, I say, ladies, isn’t it bad enough that there are men out there that are a very real and present danger to us every day that we must make enemies of each other too? Must we break each other down and destroy each other’s self-esteem when we should be building each other up, becoming a sisterhood, so we can eventually become an army?

Sometimes we're so focused on finding our happy ending

But sometimes we're so focused on finding our happy ending we don't learn how to read the signs. How to tell from the ones who want us and the ones who don't, the ones who will stay and the ones who will leave. And maybe a happy ending doesn't include a guy, maybe... it's you, on your own, picking up the pieces and starting over, freeing yourself up for something better in the future. Maybe the happy ending is... just... moving on. Or maybe the happy ending is this, knowing after all the unreturned phone calls, broken-hearts, through the blunders and misread signals, through all the pain and embarrassment you never gave up hope.

He's Just Not That Into You


The Three Type Of People That You'll Fall In Love With In Your Life.

We Only Fall in Love with 3 People in Our Lifetime—Each One for a Specific Reason. 

1. Often our first is when we are young, in high school even. It's the idealistic love—the one that seems like the fairytales we read as children.

This is the love that appeals to what we should be doing for society's sake—and probably our families. We enter into it with the belief that this will be our only love and it doesn't matter if it doesn't feel quite right, or if we find ourselves having to swallow down our personal truths to make it work because deep down we believe that this is what love is supposed to be.

2. The second is supposed to be our hard love—the one that teaches us lessons about who we are and how we often want or need to be loved. This is the kind of love that hurts, whether through lies, pain or manipulation.

We think we are making different choices than our first, but in reality, we are still making choices out of the need to learn lessons—but we hang on. Our second love can become a cycle, often times one we keep repeating because we think that somehow the ending will be different than before. Yet, each time we try, it somehow ends worse than before.

Sometimes it's unhealthy, unbalanced or narcissistic even. There may be emotional, mental or even physical abuse or manipulation—most likely there will be high levels of drama. This is exactly what keeps us addicted to this storyline because it's the emotional rollercoaster of extreme highs and lows and like a junkie trying to get a fix, we stick through the lows with the expectation of the high.

3. And the third is the love we never see coming. The one that usually looks all wrong for us and that destroys any lingering ideas we clung to about what love is supposed to be. This is the love that comes so easy it doesn't seem possible. It's the kind where the connection can't be explained and knocks us off our feet because we never planned for it.

This is the love where we come together with someone and it just fits—there aren't any ideal expectations about how each person should be acting, nor is there pressure to become someone other than we are.

If I ever decide to give up on you...

If I ever decide to give up on you, understand how much that took out of me. I’m the type to give endless chances, always have your back even when you are wrong, and truly accept you for who you are. When the rest of the world doesn’t want you, I will. So if I gave up on you, understand it took everything I had left inside of me to leave you…because if I love you, and care about you, there isn’t anything on the planet I wouldn’t do for you.


I feel so complete

I wish I could explain your eyes, and how the sound of your voice gives me butterflies. How your smile makes my heart skip a beat and how every time I’m with you, I feel so complete.


He’s like nobody else in the world.

He’s like nobody else in the world. When I’m with him, it’s like I’m split in half. Part of me is on fire, going crazy if I’m not touching him.The other half is calm and peaceful just perfectly content, knowing he is the one for me.


Fairytales Aren’t Perfect Either

What if Cinderella had an attitude problem and Snow White liked cider too much? What if Ariel enjoyed human company more than her own kind’s and Aurora just liked her solitude more than the human touch? What if the only rabbit hole Alice ever fell down involved a pipe and a substance not discussed as such? What if they locked Wendy up for hallucinating about Neverland and a boy who never grew up? What if fairy tales weren’t as innocent as they sounded and even princesses weren’t perfect? What if I told you your damage doesn’t define you and the way you survive is no one else’s damned business?

- Nikita Gill, Fairytales Aren’t Perfect Either


She’s a keeper,

If a girl understands your bullshit, sticks around through all your mistakes, and smiles even though you’ve done nothing for her, then it’s obvious she’s a keeper, but it’s also obvious you don’t deserve her.


I’m going to love you.

I’m going to love you. 

I’m going to love you in your weakest moments to your strongest ones. I’m going to love you when you’re happy and I’m going to still love you the most when you’re sad. Don’t you understand? I’m here, and I’m not going anywhere. I want to love you, each and every piece of you. I want you with your imperfections as much as I want you for you. And I’m always going to want you, I’m always going to be here loving you with everything.

The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it.

When you truly love someone..

When you love someone, when you truly love someone, that person becomes part of you, they become your life, your everything. They change you and they inspire you in so many different ways that are indescribable. How do you let go of someone who has made such an impact on your life? How do you let go of the only thing that keeps you going, keeps you smiling? Loving someone with all you have is letting go of fear, it's growing up because when you love someone wholeheartedly, you let go of yourself too. Love is to love, so how do you let go of someone you truly care about? The truth is...I don't think you can. I think no matter what happens, whether you are together or not, they are in your heart....always.


It takes someone special to love a person who’s broken

It takes someone special to love a person who’s broken; someone who’s willing to look past all the cracks and fault lines to see the person the fragments form in their entirety… It takes someone with patience and a gentle spirit… someone who realizes that broken people may appear sharp and hostile, but are in fact fragile and need to be treated with care… 

But most of all, it takes someone who’s brave to love a person who’s broken because they will hurt you – even if they don’t mean to… There will be times you will try to hold them but they’ll be too afraid to let you close… Their words will be the weapons they use to push you away and they’ll sting you like splinters get under your skin… But if you are brave enough to try… to try again… to keep trying until you break through those defenses, you will find that a broken person will love you unlike anyone else ever has. 

Every fractured part of their personality will love you and reflect your love back at you a thousand fold. They’ll make you laugh, they’ll make you cry… they’ll be the biggest roller coaster of emotions you’ll ever know… but they’ll be worth it… so very worth it because their trust is worth its weight in gold… And with every part of themselves they uncover for you comes the knowledge that you are special… that you are their only one… that you are an explorer in an uncharted wilderness seeing a hidden treasure that nobody else has ever gotten close enough to see; that jewel of a smile that shines only for you…

~ Ranata Suzuki


I have no problem with those who don't like me

I have no problem with those who don't like me, but I have a problem with those who pretend to.


So, do it. Decide.

So, do it. Decide. Is this the life you want to live? Is this the person you want to love? Is this the best you can be? Can you be stronger? Kinder? More Compassionate? Decide. Breathe in. Breathe out and decide. - Meredith Grey


I’m not into halfway effort, part-time love, or unavailable people.

I’m not into halfway effort, part-time love, or unavailable people. If you’re not ready, work on yourself. The type of love and passion I have cannot be wasted on a person who does not see the value in me.


You must love her on her bad days..

You must love her on her bad days when she is moody and irritated, just as much as you love her when everything is going well.


I can't stand the thought of losing you.

I like you because I can never stay mad at you, I can't stand not talking to you and I can't stand the thought of losing you.


They want to see you do good

They want to see you do good, but never better than them...remember that.


The problem I have with haters

The problem I have with haters is that they see my glory, but they don't know my story... --Maya Angelou


One day you will realize how much beauty you have inside you

One day you will realize how much beauty you have inside you; how much capacity and light and strength, and one day you will realize how many people you could make a difference in the lives of if you stopped comparing your life with someone else's and really truly embraced yourself and activated all you were made to be.


I'm so scared of losing you.

I never wanna see you in my future as a stranger. We've built so much together. I never wanna watch you walk by me as if we never met. It will literally kill me inside. I'm so scared of losing you. Although we've made promises, I'm just scared that those promises won't mean much in the future. I don't know where we're heading. I'm just worried. We started off as strangers, and I'm really hoping we don't end as strangers.


Sometimes there is sadness in our journey, but there is also lots of beauty.

You fall, you rise, you make mistakes, you live, you learn. You're human, not perfect. You've been hurt, but you're alive. Think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive to breathe, to think, to enjoy, and to be with people you love. Sometimes there is sadness in our journey, but there is also lots of beauty. We must keep putting one foot in front of the other even when we hurt, for we will never know what is waiting for us just around the bend.


My kind of relationship

My kind of relationship:
I love being in the type of relationship where you're totally comfortable around each other, and there's no pressure to act a certain way, there's no awkward moments, you can be weird and lazy when you're together, make fun of each other, tickle each other and then just laugh it off like you're best friends because you are. A relationship where you call each other nicknames and there is lots of laughing involved in the time you spend together, but you can also be serious. You can just be yourself with the comfort of knowing that's what the other person loves the most, that's true love.


I won't say I'll never hurt you.

I won't say I'll never hurt you. Chances are I will. I'll make mistakes. I'll break promises. I'll fight with you. I'll make you scream. I'll make you not want to be with me anymore. But even so, I will always learn from my mistakes. I'll never give up on us. I'll always apologize. I'll always love you. I'm not perfect. I never will be. But I also don't want to be dishonest and promise you things I can't keep. I'd rather show you my faults and try to make up for them.


If you ignore me, I won't wait around.

If you ignore me, I won't wait around. I won't bug you, I just won't talk to you, simple as that. Sure it's going to be hard, but it won't hurt as much as being ignored. I deserve better than that. I'll move on and find someone who actually cares about me because obviously, you don't. If you continually treat me like crap what reason do I have to stay?


At least respect me enough to tell me what's up.

At least respect me enough to tell me what's up. If you don't want to talk to me, just tell me. If I'm getting on your nerves, just let me know. If you're losing feelings, don't keep me waiting just to lead me on or play me. I at least deserve to know. So instead of keeping things to yourself, just be straight up and honest with me so I don't have to sit around looking stupid.
