trying hard quotes

If you’re a dreamer and a romantic, you’re going to have a hard time in the world. That’s all there is to it. Because it’s just a rough, hard world. I try to find bits of joy where I can. I’m trying to find a way to find some peace. I’m almost desperate. I don’t want to be miserable the rest of my life, you know.

A note from the Indivisible Team
A note for all of us who feel defeated after Sessions from the Indivisible Team: This is the long game.

A note for all of us who feel defeated after Sessions from the Indivisible Team: This is the long game. We are going to lose a lot. We are going to get good at losing. We are going to lose cabinet votes for terrible nominees. We are going to lose bills that are offensive and appalling. But while we are losing, something else is going to happen. We are going to keep raising our voices and slowly our representatives are going to start listening to us. We’ve seen it happen. 


It won’t happen because of next week’s call to action. It’ll happen over months, where you keep showing up, regularly. Then, we are going to start winning. It’ll sneak up on us. We won’t understand why we are winning. But it starts with losing in a particular way- where we raise our voices and call it out when we aren’t listened to, where we get close but not quite there.

The first 100 days of a President’s term are the honeymoon period, the moment when he’s most likely to get his agenda enacted. Trump is spending his first 100 days mired in controversy, scandal, and backbiting - and that’s because you haven’t for a moment let anyone in Washington forget just how unpopular he is.

Every time we change the narrative, every time we delay, every time there’s a newspaper story about a member of Congress avoiding his or her constituents, that’s a win. And it matters.

You have already made history. You’ve delayed the confirmation of Trump’s cabinet picks longer than any time in recent history. You stopped the gutting on the congressional ethics office. You’ve made Republicans so nervous about the repeal of the Affordable Care Act that it’s been pushed further and further down the road. You caused an uproar of historic proportions over Trump’s Muslim ban and saved lives and reunited families in the process. You’ve inspired people who have never before taken action to make their voices heard and learn how to do things like check how their members of Congress voted and call them out for it.

We’ll never even know about some of the victories - because those will be the fights that this Administration considered starting and then realized it couldn’t win.

We’re in this together. Every visit. Every call. Every loss. Every win. That’s just what friends do. #StandIndivisible

In solidarity,

❝ he knew not what he was
nor where he stood at the end
when the castle walls crumbled
brick by brick around him
a mosaic falling at his feet. 
yet he had found what 
mattered most in the end:
he had found himself
in the midst of the rubble -
he knew who he was.

  • Taehyung: Yo bro I'm going on a date with Jungkook tonight.. any tips?
  • Jimin: make sure to laugh at his jokes. Men always like it when you share a sense of humor.
  • ~Later~
  • Jungkook: ... And the tiger says "I guess I really don't have stripes!"
  • Taehyung: Haha you're so funny! *Continues to laugh*
  • Jungkook: *Cracks a smile* Thanks.
  • Taehyung: *Starts laughing harder*
  • Jungkook: I'm glad you like my sense of humor...
  • Taehyung: *Laughter turns to silent laughter as his face gets redder*
  • Jungkook: I mean the joke wasn't that funny Tae...
  • Taehyung: *Completly red in the face with tears streaming down his cheeks*
  • Jungkook: Jeez do you need me to call you an ambulance or something?!
  • ~Later~
  • Taehyung: I think I overdid it.
  • Jimin: Yeah...
You have no clue how hard I try not to text you, or call you, or look at your pictures. You were once part of my routine but now that you’re gone, it feels like a part of me is gone now, too.

Love doesn’t need to last a lifetime for it to be real. You can’t judge the quality of a love by the length of time it lasts. Everything dies, love included. Sometimes it does with a person, sometimes it does on its own. The greatest love story ever told doesn’t have to be about two people who spent their whole lives together. It might be about a love that lasted two weeks or two months or two years, but burned brighter and hotter and more brilliantly than any other love before or after.
