I’ve done a lot of things I’m not proud of but I don’t regret the people I did it with.
Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.

There is nothing wrong with loving the crap out of everything. Negative people find their walls. So never apologize for your enthusiasm. Never. Ever. Never.
Ryan Adams (via psych-facts)
Notice the people who are happy for your happiness, and sad for your sadness. They’re the ones who deserve special places in your heart.
Being yourself to me means smiling a lot, being kind to others, and making the people around you feel comfortable.
