“Girl, don’t you ever give up. I know your heart may be breaking, and I know you might feel like you can’t go on without him. Trust me, I know how it all feels. But do you think his heart is breaking over you? Do you think he’s wasting his days away, laying in bed thinking of the good ol’ times? No. He’s going to move on with his life. And guess what? You are too. You are going to super glue your heart right back together, and go on with life. With or without him. And someday, there will be a new guy. Maybe this guy will be the one, or maybe he will just be a temporary guy. But either way, you will move on. To much better things. But for now, you need to get up and forget about the guy who forgot about you.”—Daily Tumblr Love Quotes (via thelovewhisperer)
“Before you say yes, get him angry. See him scared, see him wanting, see him sick. Stress changes a person. Find out if he drinks and if he does, get him drunk - you’ll learn more about his sober thoughts. Discover his addictions. See if he puts you in front of them. You can’t change people, baby girl. If they are made one way, it doesn’t just wear off. If you hate how he acts when he’s out of it now, you’re going to hate it much worse eight years down the road. You might love him to bits but it doesn’t change that some people just don’t fit.”—inkskinned, “My father’s recipe for the man I should marry” (via partygirlmeltdown)
I need to read this, re-read it, then read it again and keep it embedded in my mind forever.
why is it that were always told not to get tattoos at a young age because we “will regret it later on” when we are basically told to choose a career path by age 18? i’d rather be 40 years old with a tattoo that meant something to me when i was young than be 40 years old not wanting to get out of bed to go to a job that i hate because i was forced to decide on a career in my teens
'Tell me what happens the first time you see a woman naked.'
'The first time you see a woman naked will not be like you imagined. There will be no love, no trust, no intimacy. You won’t even be in the same room as her.
You won’t get to smile as she undresses you and you undress her. You won’t get to calm her nerves with nerves of your own. You won’t get to kiss her, feeling her lips and the edge of her tongue. You won’t get to brush your fingers over the lace of her bra or count her ribs or feel her heartbeat.
The first time you see a woman naked you will be sitting in front of a computer screen watching someone play at intimacy and perform at sex. She will contort her body to please everyone in the room but her. You will watch this woman who is not a woman, pixelated and filtered and customized. She will come ready-made, like an order at a restaurant. The man on the screen will be bigger than you, rougher than you. He will teach you how to talk to her. He will teach you where to put your hands and he will teach you what you’re supposed to like. He will teach you to take what is yours.
You must unlearn this. You must unlearn this twisted sense of love. You must unlearn the definition of pleasure and intimacy you are being taught. Kill this idea of love, this idea of entitlement, this way of scarring one another.’
Hi! I'm 5'2 and 160 - my highest weight EVER! I gained about 20lbs this winter and I'm looking to lose 40-50lbs. The thing is, I am so insecure! I lost a ton of weight a couple years ago but gained it all back + some. Now when I try to run (I LOVE running!) I feel like the people around me are thinking, "God.. not this hippo again. If you couldn't keep it off why bother trying again?!" I know motivation comes from within.. but could you please give me some tips? Thank you!
I understand how it can be easy to get caught up on the “what-if’s” of people’s thoughts, but I assure you no one it thinking that. I doubt people are even paying attention to you!
It’s easy to think that EVERYONE is thinking about you just because they stare at you, but most of the time they don’t even realize they are staring at you!
The only time you should concern with people’s thoughts is when they say them out loud to you, and if they say anything less than that you are fabulous, don’t worry about it!
Your healthy and happiness is more important than the what-if’s of people’s thoughts.
