Criticizing is easy, loving is difficult.

small town, big dreams.

Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real.. it is possible.. it’s yours.

Listen to me, your body is not a temple. Temples can be destroyed and desecrated. Your body is a forest—thick canopies of maple trees and sweet scented wildflowers sprouting in the under wood. You will grow back, over and over, no matter how badly you are devastated.

When you meet someone who tries their hardest to stick by you regardless of how difficult you are, keep them. Keep them at all costs because finding someone who cares enough to look past your flaws isn’t something that happens every day.

Finding a loyal friend is as hard as finding a tear drop in the ocean! If you have them, cherish them!

I just remembered, that night I first touched you, even got close to you, I went all the way with you, but Why? I’m sure a kiss would’ve been enough. I think I just wanted you to know how bad I wanted you, how bad I needed you, and now you’ve been all mine for months. Never has something bad I’ve done turn into something practically perfect.
