“Amazing how life turns out the way that it does. We end up hurting the worst, the only ones we really love.”
The drunk kids, the catholics they’re all about the same. They are waiting for something, hoping to be saved.

BUT LET THERE BE SPACES IN YOUR TOGETHERNESS AND LET THE WINDS OF THE HEAVENS DANCE BETWEEN YOU. LOVE ONE ANOTHER BUT MAKE NOT A BOND OF LOVE: LET IT RATHER BE A MOVING SEA BETWEEN THE SHORES OF YOUR SOULS. - KAHLIL GIBRAN
If you don’t claim your humanity you will become a statistic.
LIFE WILL BREAK YOU.NOBODY CAN PROTECT YOU FROM THAT, AND LIVING ALONE WON’T EITHER. FOR SOLITUDE WILL ALSO BREAK YOU WITH ITS YEARNING. YOU HAVE TO LOVE.YOU HAVE TO FEEL. IT IS THE REASON YOU ARE HERE ON EARTH. YOU ARE HERE TO RISK YOUR HEART. YOU ARE HERE TO BE SWALLOWED UP. AND WHEN IT HAPPENS THAT YOU ARE BROKEN, OR BETRAYED, OR LEFT, OR HURT, OR DEATH BRUSHES NEAR, LET YOURSELF SIT BY AN APPLE TREE AND LISTEN TO THE APPLES FALLING ALL AROUND YOU IN HEAPS, WASTING THEIR SWEETNESS. TELL YOURSELF YOU TASTED AS MANY AS YOU COULD.
~ Louise Erdrich (The Painted Drum)
"I knew that you were a truth I would rather lose than to have never laid beside at all."
-What Sarah Said - Death Cab For A Cutie
"You could not help yourself from crying the entire night.
It’s painful when you realize your lives are intertwined.
It’s hell to need someone.
