who’s arms would I run and fall into
if I were drunk
in a room with everyone
I have ever loved

The bravest thing I ever did was continuing my life when I wanted to die.
~Juliette Lewis (via psych-facts
If you’re struggling, you deserve to make self-care a priority. Whether that means lying in bed all day, eating comfort food, putting off homework, crying, sleeping, rescheduling plans, finding an escape through a good book, watching your favorite tv show, or doing nothing at all — give yourself permission to put your healing first. Quiet the voice telling you to do more and be more, and today, whatever you do, let it be enough. Feel your feelings, breathe, and be gentle with yourself. Acknowledge that you’re doing the best you can to cope and survive. And trust that during this time of struggle, it’s enough.
~Daniell Koepke (via karenagra
of course you don’t fight fire with fire, but you do fight it by suffocating it, drowning it, or stomping it out. you dont stop fire by just standing there and asking it nicely “please dont burn my neighborhood down”
At some point you just have to let go of what you thought should happen and live in what is happening.
One day I will forgive you; until then there are scabs everywhere that you have touched me.
~Salvador Plascencia, The People of Paper
