“Stability isn’t nearly so spectacular as instability. And being contented has none of the glamour of a good fight against misfortune, none of the picturesqueness of a struggle with temptation, or a fatal overthrow by passion of doubt. Happiness is never grand.”—Aldous Huxley (via monsta)
I just started to think about it and everything I say, you shoot down. Like why can’t you sometimes be like “yea, that’s true” or just politely agree with what i say instead of being like “Hm, no I don’t think so” or “no, you’re wrong.” Like seriously, it happens every single freaking time. Just get over your stubbornness and hardheadedness. Stop shooting everything I say or think down. I always seem to support your decisions or whatever you say because I try to be nice. But now, seriously, f*ck that. I’m saying whatever I want next time and frankly, I don’t give a damn what you do.
“so this is when we finally learn the real meaning of change. you do the things you used to be against, you date the people you thought you never would and you befriend the people you used to hate. you’ll learn what it’s like to have your heart broken, to lose a friend who truly meant something to you and to feel as if everything is really falling apart. there will be times when your life seems absolutely horrible, it feels like it’s not real. despite all this, good things will come too. you’ll make the most amazing friends who will be there for you when they probably shouldn’t be. your broken heart will heal once you find the most perfect guy you’ve ever met and as nothing else can go wrong, things will only get better. there will be days you are so happy and days you feel like dying. drama happens, gossip goes around and people talk shit. maybe this is just the teenage years, maybe it’s life or maybe this is just what growing up is.”—
“I’ve always, essentially, been waiting. Waiting to become something else, waiting to be that person I always thought I was on the verge of becoming. When I was a child i couldn’t wait to be in high school and experience all of the cliche moments a high school kid experienced. When I was in high school, I was patiently waiting to get to the college version of myself which I saw so clearly in my head. Amidst all the waiting and anticipating though, i missed out on living. I was always waiting for that life-changing moment that I was so sure would come that I became complacent, never striving to do anything more because I thought things would just fall into place. Life isn’t like the movies…you can’t just sit back and wait for life to happen for you. There is no turning point other than the point you choose for yourself. Life is a billion little moments where you have a billion different choices that alter your path a billion different ways. John Lennon once wrote, “Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans” and that is essentially what has been happening with me. That is my one main reason why it was always so hard for me to find happiness, because I was so confident in a brighter future that i could never possibly enjoy the present. So my days were spent suffering and waiting and anxiously anticipating my life changer. Don’t make the same mistake as me. Be the change that you want to see your in life. Cherish each moment, appreciate each friend, pay attention to the small things and happiness will come. I guarantee it.”—http://monsta.tumblr.com/
“It’s not that I don’t like people. It’s just that when I’m in the company of others - even my nearest and dearest - there always comes a moment when I’d rather be reading a book.”—Maureen Corrigan (via monsta)
I don’t expect virginity but I simply prefer women who haven’t been rubbed raw by experience. there is a quality about women who choose men sparingly; it appears in their walk in their eyes in their laughter and in their gentle hearts
