; I believe in love, I believe it can change people. I believe in forever’s and ever after’s. I believe with all my heart. I believe you cannot apply logic to love and I believe you can never achieve love or fall madly in love by trying to be logical. So when you fall, fall with everything you’ve got, you’re already falling, don’t try to be logical about it and think about the ground, enjoy the fall and the exhiliration of love. And I believe you should love with all you’ve got and hold nothing back, there’s no joy in the ride if you don’t just let yourself go. It’s like riding a rollercoaster, if you’re rigid and fear the ride, all you will think about is the end but if you close your eyes, let yourself go and enjoy the wind through your hair, and the feeling of being suspended in mid air, like you’re flying, if you just let yourself go, I can gurantee you, the risks will be worth the feeling of exhiliration, happiness and freedom.
Sometimes you just feel everything and nothing all at once. Sometimes you’ll find yourself smiling, While missing something at the same time. At times you can absolutely love a person, All the while wanting to hurt them. Life comes without guarantees. Except thtat smiling will brighten your face, Laughing will enhance your eyes, And falling in love will change your life.
“An ‘anyway’ friend is the one person in your life, who no matter what they say or do, no matter what they’ve been through with you, they love you anyway.”—Sam Bennett — Private Practice (via alj88, doublebagel)
“I live to like you and I can’t like you anymore. So, when you get your heart splattered all over hell and you’re really feeling low and dirty, don’t run to me to help pull you back up because, maybe, for the first time in your life, I won’t be there.”—
Ookay, so he’s back! He’s finally back and I couldn’t be happier that he’s back!! He’s home, where he belongs. I feel like a child again, a child filled with this innocent excitement! I don’t recall ever wanting something so much in my life or being so excited about anything. Ever since I was a child, it was more or less, I want but if I can’t have it, I’ll live. But this, this makes me feel like I would die if I couldn’t have it, exactly why I feel like a child, like I won’t rest until I can have it! *sigh* he’s home :) I’n going to meet him right now, and his family. I’m getting his mom flowers, I don’t know if that’s enough?
Rumination is a style of thinking in which, like a hamster in a cage, you run in tight circles on a treadmill in your brain. It means obsessing about problems, about a loss, about any kind of a setback or ambiguity without moving past thought into the realm of action.
The trouble with rumination is at least twofold. As you ruminate, you deepen the grooves in the brain, intensifying levels of anxiety and depression. And your problems remain unsolved, and are perhaps even exacerbated by the failure to move on them.
Women are predisposed to rumination, largely because they value relationships and thus devote a great deal of time and mental energy to processing the often-ambiguous content of them.
And there they get lost, obsessing about issues without taking action. Men, in general, take the opposite tack. They are given to launching themselves into action without thinking their problems through well enough. As a result, the solutions they attempt are not always directly or efficiently focused on their problems.
“Songs and smells will bring you back to a moment in time more than anything else. It’s amazing how much can be conjured with a few notes of a song or a solitary whiff of a room. A song you didn’t even pay attention to at the time, a place that you didn’t even know had a particular smell.”—Something Borrowed (via alj88)
“Be real, because a mask only fools people on the outside. Pretending to be someone you’re not takes a toll on the real you, and the real you is more important than anyone else.”—Alex Gaskarth (via alj88, fuckyeahhappy)
“Wake up. This is your life, for God sakes. It’s time to face up to it. You can’t get anywhere, can’t get over anything, if you don’t let yourself feel anything in the first place. It’s time.”—Julie Buxbaum (The Opposite of Love) (via alj88)
“Just say what you mean and mean what you say. Don’t expect someone to read your mind and don’t play games with heads or hearts. Don’t tell half truths and expect trust when the full truth comes out; half truths are no better then lies. Don’t be cold to someone you care about; indifference hurts more than angry words.”—(via alj88, eletheowl)
