It’s also really hard to let people in and talk to them about it because no matter how hard you try, they will never understand.

Most of the time it really sucks to have a sister with bipolar who can’t control her mood swings or anything she says or does. It’s incredibly hard to hold your tongue when she is throwing flaming arrows at every flaw you have. It’s also incredibly hard to love her.

My mother used to say to me, ‘You can’t eat beauty, it doesn’t feed you.’ And these words played and bothered me, I didn’t really understand them until finally I realized that beauty was not a thing that I could acquire or consume. It was something that I just had to be. And what my mother meant by saying that you can’t eat beauty is that you can’t rely on beauty to sustain you. What actually sustains us, what is fundamentally beautiful is compassion for yourself and those around you. That kind of beauty inflames the heart and enchants the soul.

You’d be surprised by how far a smiley face goes in texting. People will believe whatever you say if there is a smiley face.

I really need to pay attention to what I say to certain people because I’m tired of the lectures, so if I act like I understand or that I care, I won’t get them. Problem solved.

This isn’t just a place for when life gets dull, it’s where I feel most at home, where I feel like I’m supposed to be. For me, there is no joy like sitting on top of a playground you built from the ground up, hearing the playful screams of happy children, and watching a Peruvian sun set over the mountains.

Hey ya’ll! Please please please, like this photo and reblog it! It’s for a friend of mine trying to win a trip for her and her girlfriend! It would be amazing to support them!

I kissed her neck and shoulders. I felt faint with loving her so much.
