That's how you know you love someone, I guess. When you can't experience anything without wishing the other person were there to see it.

This letter is to you.
The you that’s had a rough week. The you that seems to be under constant storm clouds. The you that feels invisible. The you that doesn’t know how much longer you can hold on. The you that has lost faith. The you that always blames yourself for everything that goes wrong. To you. You are incredible. You make this world a little bit more wonderful. You have so much potential and so many things left to do. You have time. Better things are coming your way, so please hang in there. 
You can do it.

Self reminder: you're still young and you're not supposed to have your whole life figured out yet. Everything will work out.

via @oljaryz • I remember first learning that you can cry from any emotion, that emotions are chemical levels in your brain and your body is constantly trying to maintain equilibrium. so if one emotion sky rockets, that chemical becomes flagged and signals the tear duct to open as an exit to release that emotion packaged neatly within a tear. Everything made sense after learning that. That sudden stability of your emotions after crying. How crying is often accompanied by the inability to feel any other emotion in that precise moment. And it is especially beautiful knowing that it is even possible to experience so much beauty or love or happiness that your body literally can’t hold on to all of it. So what I’ve learned is that crying signifies that you are feeling as much as humanely possible and that is living to the fullest extent. So keep feeling and cry often and as much as needed.

via @lindaworldsaffair • I want to wake up next to your sleepy grin in the morning. Eat breakfast and get changed together. Watch movies with you in bed with my head on your shoulder and your hand in my hair. Hold your hand and watch corny tv shows. Send you texts whenever something silly happens. Buy you gifts. Nap together. Look into your eyes. Be with you at sunrise and sunset. Cook with you while dancing in the kitchen. Walk in the rain with you. Snuggle in bed. Steal your hoodies. And kiss you goodnight for the rest of my life.

You will always be too much of something for someone: too big, too loud, too soft, too edgy. If you round out your edges, you lose your edge.
Apologize for mistakes. Apologize for unintentionally hurting someone – profusely. But don't apologize for being who you are.

via @piecesofparadisse • I want to move into an apartment in Manhattan with wooden floors and big windows. Drink coffee in Central Park with my best friend and gossip about that bitch yesterday. Work at a fashion house. Go to a bar downtown with all my friends in the weekends. Wear my boyfriend's shirt at home, but extravagant clothes when I go out. And last, but not least - I want to be the type of person people turn around for on the streets and go 'she's someone.'

So, what if, instead of thinking about solving your whole life, you just think about additional good things. One at a time. Just let your pile of good things grow.

'Listen,' he says
'I don't need the 14th of February to let you know how it feels whenever you smile at me. I don't need that day to tell you how much I love you when you're lost talking about what you love. Nor do I need that day to let you know how the littlest of things you do, affects me in every single possible way I can imagine. I don't need Valentine's day to let you know how much I adore you.'

Self-love ain't just bubble baths & face masks – it's owning up to your shit, accepting your flaws and encouraging yourself to do better.
