never like a boy you’ll end up either hating them or hating yourself
There’s so much more to life than finding someone who will want you, or being sad over someone who doesn’t. There’s a lot of wonderful time to be spent discovering yourself without hoping someone will fall in love with you along the way, and it doesn’t need to be painful or empty. You need to fill yourself up with love. Not anyone else. Become a whole being on your own. Go on adventures, fall asleep in the woods with friends, wander around the city at night, sit in a coffee shop on your own, write on bathroom stalls, leave notes in library books, dress up for yourself, give to others, smile a lot. Do all things with love, but don’t romanticize life like you can’t survive without it. Live for yourself and be happy on your own. It isn’t any less beautiful, I promise.

My mom really helped me out today and I have never been more grateful, sometimes I’m far to hard on my mom and I always think she expects to much from me but when it comes down to it my mom has always done everything for me on her own and I need to learn to tell her how much I appreciate this from her. She is truly wonderful and I never tell her this and I need to learn to start to!
Codependency isn’t sexy. It isn’t romantic. It’s built with a fuse and will surely burn out. The healthiest thing you can say to the one you love is, 'I would be okay without you, and that’s why I choose to stay.'
