keen quotes

I don’t know why, but sometimes I still think about you. Not in a “I miss you” kind of way, but just in a “You came to mind” kind of way. And sometimes there would be questions that surface, thoughts about what my life would be like had you decided to stay that one summer I wanted to pour my whole heart for you.

—favourite character development

right now, you are still only a sprout of a great big eye-catching flower. that flower is small for now, but very strong. what kind of flower will bloom in the future is up to you.

I’ve realized after some time,
that you can never fully make people
like you, and accept you
for who you are.
And some,
don’t even bother
trying to,
some don’t even
want to
get to know you,
or understand you,
for the interior
rather than the outer
parts that you show.
So stop letting yourself
get so caught up
in wanting so badly,
to impress people
who don’t deserve
your best.
You are worth, a lot.
And there will always be,
some, who are too blind
to see you for what you are.
In the end,
it won’t matter
because you do not deserve
having people in your life,
who can’t see you
for more than what
you choose to show.
