"Let someone love you just the way you are – as flawed as you might be, as unattractive as you sometimes feel, and as unaccomplished as you think you are. To believe that you must hide all the parts of you that are broken, out of fear that someone else is incapable of loving what is less than perfect, is to believe that sunlight is incapable of entering a broken window and illuminating a dark room."
— Marc Hack (via larmoyante)
"There are some people you’ll never see again. At least, not in the same way."
— I Wrote This For You, Iain S. Thomas (via sahrana)
"I admire anybody who has the guts to write anything at all."

"The sea is in me
and all of these lonely waves
wash upon your shore."
