Try to love yourself as much as you want someone else to.
The Shack by William P. Young
i loved this book so much. forgot about it til now :)
I suppose that since most of our hurts come through relationships, so will our healing, and i know that grace rarely makes sense for those looking in from the outside.
It took many years of vomiting up all the filth I’d been taught about myself, and half-believed, before I was able to walk on this earth as though I had a right to be here.
Compassion hurts. When you feel connected to everything, you also feel responsible for everything. And you cannot turn away. Your destiny is bound with the destinies of others. You must either learn to carry the universe or be crushed by it. You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet empty enough to sit down at the same table with its worst horrors.
At what point do you take girls out of school altogether because boys can’t handle it?
People with a high tolerance for boredom can get a lot of thinking done.
I survived because the fire inside me burned brighter than the fire around me.
I haven’t laid here since I had you curled around my side.
I didn’t know I would care.
I didn’t know I would feel alone without you.
