to be beautiful means to be yourself

Random thing: every time I see your URL in a post as I'm scrolling through my dash, I do a double-take because I always misread it as 'menstruation' at first glance.😆

AHAHAHAAAAAA omg, that is beautiful.

Another amusing thing: When I was trying to make the Twitter handle, I discovered that themetastation was already taken by someone who sells “custom conjures and entities,” by which they seem to mean anime characters that are actually spirit-guide sorta thingies that you can purchase a connection to? And some of them are wolves?? I DON’T EVEN KNOW HOW TO DESCRIBE IT, IT’S JUST SO BIZARRE, YOU HAVE TO CHECK IT OUT YOURSELF

In conclusion, the internet is land of contrasts.

You ruin your life by desensitizing yourself. We are all afraid to say too much, to feel too deeply, to let people know what they mean to us. Caring is not synonymous with crazy. Expressing to someone how special they are to you will make you vulnerable. There is no denying that. However, that is nothing to be ashamed of. There is something breathtakingly beautiful in the moments of smaller magic that occur when you strip down and are honest with those who are important to you. Let that girl know that she inspires you. Tell your mother you love her in front of your friends. Express, express, express. Open yourself up, do not harden yourself to the world, and be bold in who, and how you love. There is courage in that.

“Finished [the book] already?”

“Oh I couldn’t put it down! Got anything new?”

(I saw Beauty and the Beast today, and honestly, didn’t feel as much of the Disney magic as I wanted to. However…it doesn’t stop inspiration from hitting!)

Happy 23rd birthday to the beautiful, kind, humble and hardworking Jackson Wang! 

Words can’t even begin to describe how much you mean to me and so many others. Though you don’t know it, you’ve helped me go through so many hard times by just being yourself and bringing me comfort with just a smile. I’m always so proud of you and proud to be able to say i’m your fan! Your effort and hard work never go unnoticed and your love and care for your fans is so inspiring and heartwarming - I could never ask for a better person to love. Thank you for staying true and being you Jackson ♥️

me: i’m fat and i need to change my lifestyle in order to get fitter 

person: don’t call yourself fat, you’re beautiful!

me: i know that i’m beautiful, but i also know that i’m fat. acknowledging that i’m fat doesn’t mean that i think that i’m ugly or that i have low self esteem; and it certainly doesn’t mean that i’m looking for reassurance. 

person: 

Never forget to appreciate your own beauty, okay? (Cuz I mean damn… you look good today fam 😘)

The signs as Friedrich Nietzsche quotes

Aries- “Your only problem, perhaps, is that you scream without letting yourself cry.”

Taurus- "There is always some madness in love. But there is also always some reason in madness.”

Gemini- “I change too quickly; my today refutes my yesterday. When I ascend, I often jump over steps, &’ no step forgives me that.”

Cancer- "To live is to suffer, to survive is to find some meaning in the suffering.”

Leo- “There cannot be a God because if there were one, I could not believe that I was not he.”

Virgo- “The essence of all beautiful art, all great art, is gratitude.”

Libra- “Love is not consolation. It is light.”

Scorpio- “Thoughts are the shadows of our feelings - always darker, emptier and simpler.”

Sagittarius- “Madness is rare in individuals - but in groups, parties, nations, and ages it is the rule.”

Capricorn- “You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, &’ the only way, it does not exist.”

Aquarius- “One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star.”

Pisces- “When we are tired, we are attacked by ideas we conquered long ago.”


Edgar Allan Poe

Oscar Wilde

Tim Burton  

Emily Dickinson

To be beautiful means to be yourself.You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself. When you are born a lotus flower, be a beautiful lotus flower, don’t try to be a magnolia flower. If you crave acceptance and recognition and try to change yourself to fit what other people want you to be, you will suffer all your life. True happiness and true power lie in understanding yourself, accepting yourself, having confidence in yourself.

Every experience, whether you have noticed it or not, has moulded you into the very person that you are today. There is a reason behind each and every one of your opinions and beliefs. Do not underestimate these feelings, for they all have meaning.

She carries her own little universe within herself, every single content paints her life story and reminds her that she’s a piece of it,


the stars remind her of never giving up, of always seeing the good in bad and even when you’re at your worst you should just keep shining,


the clouds remind her of how important it is to travel, to see the beauty of this world and to breathe a different air and to get lost in a foreign city,


the hurricanes remind her of the past, of the fact that it may hurt, but accepting all that pain makes you stronger and wiser, everything can change in a minute and we have no control on anything,


the sunsets and sunrises remind her of how beautiful it is to continue doing your thing, even when nobody notices you, because it doesn’t mean that you suck, at the end of the day, you should do things for yourself first,


the rain reminds her of the fact that letting emotions out is always good to do, because in order to grow and to bloom you have to cry at first,


the air reminds her of being kind to others, to always help them and show them that life is truly beautiful, you know you have lived when someone tells you “because of you, i never gave up.”
