"Why am I so anxious? And then it hits me. I’m not anxious, I’m lonely. And I’m lonely in some horribly deep way and for a flash of an instant, I can see just how lonely, and how deep this feeling runs. And it scares the shit out of me to be so lonely because it seems catastrophic - seeing the car just as it hits you."
— Augusten Burroughs, Dry (via 1995you)
"The decision to be positive is not one that disregards or belittles sadness that exists. It is rather a conscious choice to focus on the good and to cultivate happiness - genuine happiness. Happiness is not a limited resource. When we devote our energy and time to trivial matters and choose to stress over things that ultimately are insignificant, from that point, we perpetuate our own sadness and lose sight of the things that really make us happy and rationalize our way out of doing amazing things."
— Christopher Aiff (via coldaslt)
Let it go,
Because if you don’t,
it’ll eat you alive,
from the inside
and all the way out.
Let it go,
and I promise
when you do,
you’ll forget it was even there
"You don’t need religion to have morals. If you can’t determine right from wrong then you lack empathy, not religion."
