When I loved myself enough, I began leaving whatever wasn’t healthy. This meant people, jobs, my own beliefs and habits—anything that kept me small. My judgement called it disloyal. Now I see it as self-loving.

do you ever just want someone to come over and lay on the floor with you for a while
you know that quiet girl in class?
yeah she goes home and makes fun of you all on tumblr
Learning to ignore things is one of the great paths to inner peace.
// Robert J. Sawyer, Calculating God (via stability)
I write entirely to find out what I’m thinking, what I’m looking at, what I see and what it means. What I want and what I fear.
You can’t make yourself feel positive, but you can choose how to act, and if you choose right, it builds your confidence.
You are most powerful when you are most silent. People never expect silence. They expect words, motion, defense, offense, back and forth. They expect to leap into the fray. They are ready, fists up, words hanging leaping from their mouths. Silence? No.
