"I really cared about what other people thought about me and I would go out of the way to make them happy at my own expense. But they would end up doing what they wanted anyway. I kept trying to get over them, like it wasn’t a big deal or I did it wrong: but soon found quickly, I had to get over myself first.
I had to quit trying to control the world around me with a desperate twisted-up death grip. I had to learn that part of love is letting go of other people’s perceptions and just letting them love me on their own. It matters less now what people think of me and just that they think at all. So I started saying ‘no’ more often: because not everything is okay with me and I shouldn’t have to explain myself. My happiness is not contingent on you getting some fake yes-version of me."
"If a writer falls in love with you, you can never die."
"Everything that’s happening to you, is what’s suppose to be happening to you. So just relax."
"You are not free until you have no need to impress anybody."
"The remarkable thing about God is that when you fear God, you fear nothing else, whereas if you do not fear God, you fear everything else."
This is going to be really tough, since I love Tumblr so much, but hopefully I’ll come back once I’m not so distracted by Social Media. Goodbye for a few weeks, Tumblr! I hope that you all might be able to break the same habits & that you guys can take a stand & invest your lives in reading God’s Word more, spending time with family members, and enjoying the outdoors. Stay beautiful, y’all.
the worst thing is when you see a really good friend start to replace you
