Sometimes it takes sadness to know happiness, noise to appreciate silence and absence to value presence. (via helennguyeen)

The truth is that the more intimately you know someone, the more clearly you’ll see their flaws. That’s just the way it is. This is why marriages fail, why children are abandoned, why friendships don’t last. You might think you love someone until you see the way they act when they’re out of money or under pressure or hungry, for goodness’ sake. Love is something different. Love is choosing to serve someone and be with someone in spite of their filthy heart. Love is patient and kind, love is deliberate. Love is hard. Love is pain and sacrifice, it’s seeing the darkness in another person and defying the impulse to jump ship. The Great Kamryn (via 021627)

- one bad test grade does not mean a failed class.
- an unhealthy meal does not make you unhealthy.
- one unkind remark does not make you a bad person.
- one cut, one binge, one purge, one fix does not mean being clean is hopeless.
- one mistake does not make you a failure.
- one million mistakes do not make you a failure.

You realize you are not alone, right? No one in their twenties has life figured out. It’s okay to be a mess. You’re living. Things my therapist told me today that almost made me burst out into tears. I need to remember this more often. (via 6vi)
