"If you don’t love yourself, you’ll always be chasing after people who don’t love you either…"
Mandy Hale    (via clavvmarks)

Sometimes we get sad about things and we don’t like to tell other people that we are sad about them. We like to keep it a secret. Or sometimes, we are sad but we really don’t know why we are sad, so we say we aren’t sad but we really are.

"I fell in love with her courage, her sincerity, and her flaming self respect. And it’s these things I’d believe in, even if the whole world indulged in wild suspicions that she wasn’t all she should be. I love her and it is the beginning of everything."
F. Scott Fitzgerald (via realizes)

i think this is really cool because everyone can interpret it differentlyme being the sour soul i am sees it as a statement of anger, confusion, and sadness wondering how someone who once called her beautiful could have left her so emptybut i can understand how someone else might see it as a statement of joy stressing how amazing it feels to be called beautiful and then on top of all of that, nobody knows what the person who wrote it felt at the time or what she meant it to meancool stuff
