you are what you love, not who loves you

Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.

—― Dalai Lama XIV (via psych-quotes)

Ignoring your passion is slow suicide. Never ignore what your heart pumps for. Mold your career around your lifestyle not your lifestyle around your career.

Girls are like flowers -
the prettiest recognized at their
youngest, picked to satisfy
selfish desires.

What a curse it is to be a flower,
to be chosen for beauty
only to die in the hands of an admirer
before she may fully bloom.

- Pavana पवन

Sometimes when you’re lonely all you need is a little reminder from someone out there that you matter.

I miss you!

I can’t wait to see you!

I wanna see you so bad.

We’re gonna get so drunk.

Seriously, Ohio, I am so happy I always have you to go back to.

Don’t pick me up. I’m fine right where I am.

—Elliott Smith, High Times

To write with any integrity, I had to say clearly how I was wounded and healed in my personal psychotherapy, or my book would not be able to sustain the emotional truths…

—Dr. Annie Rogers


Sometimes when my brain is full,
I have to sing
Let the air flow from my lungs to the walls, 
To dispense some of myself onto something else,
This shortness of breath, for a moment, alleviates and lightens me
I fly, as the chorus comes,
A controlled motion of vocal chords and lips and tongues
To create an uncontrolled, unbound moment of music
Which I have come to call freedom

It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.

—― Friedrich Nietzsche (via psych-quotes)
