“A good relationship is when two people accept each other’s past, support each other’s present, and love each other enough to encourage each other’s future. So don’t rush love. Find a partner who encourages you to grow, who won’t cling to you, who will let you go out into the world, and trust that you will come back. This is what true love is all about.”—(via advil)
“She’s passionate in a doomed way; passionate about these tiny moments of routine she’s still managing to enjoy. Passionate about her morning coffee or the way she climbs the stairs.Yet one can clearly see that the light’s been taken out of her and she doesn’t want to get back to it. She can’t allow herself that love or openness because there’s too much pain.”—Juliette Binoche, on her role in Krzysztof Kieslowski’s Bleu: Trois Couleurs. (via violentwavesofemotion)
“She often could not articulate her thoughts; they seemed like objects glimpsed peripherally, skittish and ungraspable, splinters and fragments that would not add up to much if bundled together; they refused to stand still for examination. For this reason, she was largely silent.”—Katherine Min, After The Falls (via h-o-r-n-g-r-y)
“This is your life, there’s no way to run from it.
The doubt in your brain or the pain in your stomach.
I only have but one complaint at the moment,
Don’t paint me black when I used to be golden.”—Clairvoyant- The Story So Far (via keeplovingtostayalive)
emotional abuse is when someone does something to hurt you, and when you express your feelings, that you’re upset, they turn it around to be something you did to hurt them and they force you to apologize for it, and your feelings, like always, are rendered invalid and silenced, forever damaging the ability to trust others with your feelings because they always are used against you.
