I represent to you all the sins you never had the courage to commit.
C.S. Lewis(via thatquote)
You don’t have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body.
She was bored. She loved, had capacity to love, for love, to give and accept love. Only she tried twice and failed twice to find somebody not just strong enough to deserve it, earn it, match it, but even brave enough to accept it.
She had a strange feeling in the pit of her stomach, like when you’re swimming and you want to put your feet down on something solid, but the water’s deeper than you think and there’s nothing there.
So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they’re busy doing things they think are important. This is because they’re chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.
and you tried to change, didn’t you?
closed your mouth more
tried to be softer,
less volatile, less awake…
you can’t make homes out of human beings
someone should have already told you that
and if he wants to leave,
then let him leave
you are terrifying,
and strange, and beautiful
something not everyone knows how to love.
Well, I looked my demons in the eyes,
laid bare my chest, said, “Do your best, destroy me.
You see, I’ve been to hell and back so many times,
I must admit you kind of bore me.”
