I need to be alone. I need to ponder my shame and my despair in seclusion; I need the sunshine and the paving stones of the streets without companions, without conversation, face to face with myself, with only the music of my heart for company.

Henry Miller (via onlinecounsellingcollege)

igni-ferroque:

do you ever step back & reevaluate your life

& all the harmful shit you internalized

like concepts of virginity, beauty, healthy relationships, sexual attraction, mental health, & what “being successful” actually entails?

& you realized how much healthier you’d be right now if someone actually fuckin’ talked to you about this toxic shit instead of throwing you into a perpetual pit of self-loathing that you have to claw your way out of?

the first question got me

(via radselfcare)

You have today. You can make it rich and you can fill it with meaning.

No matter what else you may have or not have, you have today. You have the priceless opportunity to live with purpose, passion, joy and love.
