"Some people are good at being in love. Some people are good at love. Two very different things, I think. Being in love is the romantic part—sex all the time, midday naps in the sheets, the jokes, the laughs, the fun, long conversations with no pauses, overwhelming separation anxiety … Just the best sides of both people, you know? But love begins when the excitement of being in love starts to fade: the stress of life sets in, the butterflies disappear, the sex becomes a chore, the tears, the sadness, the arguments, the cattiness … The worst parts of both people. But if you still want that person by your side through all of those things … that’s when you know—that’s when you know you’re good at love." - Matthew Healy (via perfect)

People get drunk
They hook up with the wrong person
And pretend to be okay
People act tough
And get mad
People will do anything to distract their heart.
They will do anything to distract it from missing someone.

"I guess I want to be happy. I know it’s not a destination, I don’t need to find it. I’m not going to travel the world searching for myself. I’m right here. I’ve been here this whole time, decaying inside of my own skin. Happiness is something that you have to work for, but I’m not ready to be happy. There’s still a lot of suffering I need to go through. I’m scared part of me doesn’t ever want to be happy. I like being a little broken. I hate the look in peoples eyes when I tell them why, but I like the mystery of myself. I like having terrible secrets to carry in my back pocket. I’ve dragged my body across the country, and little broken pieces of me have fallen out, leaving a trail. I’m the sum of those pieces. I can still feel them although they are far away. I’m a collection of all I have and all that I have lost. I’m every place I’ve ever been, every person I’ve ever met and every decision I’ve ever made." - 2am scribbles… cory u.p. (via trying-to-find-the-inbetween)
I need to meet somebody new that will let me forget about my life for a while. I want to feel intoxicated with a fresh start. I want somebody to love, somebody to make me stop missing you. I crave adventure and spontaneity. Feeling new would be nice, breathing fresh air from a window I am finally able to crack open. A warm breeze in the dead of winter.
"Tell everyone you know: “My happiness depends on me, so you’re off the hook.” And then demonstrate it. Be happy, no matter what they’re doing. Practice feeling good, no matter what. And before you know it, you will not give anyone else responsibility for the way you feel - and then, you’ll love them all. Because the only reason you don’t love them, is because you’re using them as your excuse to not feel good." - Esther Hicks (via cosmofilius)
