"God’s love is the best love in the world."

Don’t rely on money to make you independent. 2 Don’t think you have to have everything you want, and then spend your energy trying to get it. 3 Don’t think that no one can exercise authority over you; if you do, the Lord is certain to punish you. 4 Don’t think that you can sin and get away with it; the Lord does not mind waiting to punish you. 5 Don’t be so certain of the Lord’s forgiveness that you go on committing one sin after another. 6 Don’t think that his mercy is so great that he will forgive your sins no matter how many they are. He does show mercy, but he also shows his furious anger with sinners. 7 Come back to the Lord quickly. Don’t think that you can keep putting it off. His anger can come upon you suddenly, and you will die under his punishment. 8 Don’t rely on dishonest wealth; it will do you no good on that day of disaster.

"Nobody will protect you from your suffering. You can’t cry it away or eat it away or starve it away or walk it away or punch it away or even therapy it away. It’s just there, and you have to survive it. You have to endure it. You have to live through it and love it and move on and be better for it and run as far as you can in the direction of your best and happiest dreams across the bridge that was built by your own desire to heal."
Cheryl Strayed, Tiny Beautiful Things

"I think she’s special. She doesn’t need anyone. Like that’s the thing. Even if we were together, she wouldn’t really belong to me. She doesn’t belong to anything. She’s off in her own world…"
Childish Gambino

"You can’t spend the rest of your life being afraid of people rejecting you, and you have to start by not rejecting yourself, you don’t deserve it. From now on, people can either accept you for who you are or they can fuck off."
Kester, My Mad Fat Diary.

"Do you not see how necessary a world of pains and troubles is to school an intelligence and make it a soul?"
John Keats (via observando)
"Pain is a pesky part of being human, I’ve learned it feels like a stab wound to the heart, something I wish we could all do without, in our lives here. Pain is a sudden hurt that can’t be escaped. But then I have also learned that because of pain, I can feel the beauty, tenderness, and freedom of healing. Pain feels like a fast stab wound to the heart. But then healing feels like the wind against your face when you are spreading your wings and flying through the air! We may not have wings growing out of our backs, but healing is the closest thing that will give us that wind against our faces."
C. JoyBell C.
