unconditional love

Become one with yourself. When your body says something, listen to it. When your mind is burnt out, respect that. We can either work with or against ourselves; you choose which route you’d like to take.

Just be free. Love Unconditionally. Forgive every single soul that’s hurt you. Forgive yourself too. Release everything old back into the Universe. You are born anew. The God within you is stirring. Embrace your Truth.
Be mindful of how you handle your energy. Similar to money, it can either be spent, or it can be saved. It can be given, or it can be collected. This energy is a precious gift, truly. So be cautious, and handle yours wisely.

Do I love my baby? Of course. Would I do anything for my baby? Without question. Do I wish my baby would stop whispering, ‘this small fleshy prison cannot contain me for long’ and floating upside down three feet from the ceiling every night at exactly 3:42 a.m. while inky black goo oozes from the walls? Yes. But it doesn’t make me a bad mother for feeling that way.

She stopped midway, sighed softly, and said:
I believe that there is no such thing as a coincidence. Every encounter happens for a reason. But I don’t think that it’s as simple as a blessing or a lesson. With some people, it’s a little bit of both. Their lives cross yours once and leave you speechless wondering about them for the rest of your life. Did meeting them make you better, or worse? You never know. But one thing is certain: that you come out of it different from before.
Forgive yourself. Forgive your friends. Forgive your family. Just, forgive. Life is too precious to hold onto negative energy for any longer than it’s needed.

Be with someone who lets you know that your past is absolutely and unbelievably okay to have. Be with someone who encourages you to tell your stories about any former lovers, friends, or other person that helped mold you to your present being. Be with someone who wants the best for you, even when it isn’t the best for them. Be with someone who pushes you to be a better versions of yourself, who expands your mind, and opens you up to a space of growth. Be with someone who reminds you that with or without them, you are still shining like the brightest star in the sky.
—  You can make yourself feel like shit, you don’t need another person to do it.
You and your body are not meant to work against one another, but to work together in harmony. You’re both a team. A single unit.

I just want one person to fight for me. To make me feel like I’m worth never letting go. I need someone to fight for me so selflessly and passionately; so much so, I can feel it through the universe. I want someone to hold on tight to me, because they know I’m worth it, the way I know I’m worth it.

The way she slept in his bed made his heart warm with strange feelings. Her body coiled up like a small nocturnal animal, hands folded neatly on her waist. As he crept closer to gaze at her, she stirred, ever so slightly. Open out her hands, eyes still closed, she said in a dreamy voice:
‘Come, warmth.’
That was the moment he knew this girl was his home.
