you deserved to live

My best friends laid in bed with me and cuddled and wiped away my tears when my heart was torn to pieces. Everyone deserves people like that in their lives. If you have those kind of friends don’t ever let them out of your sight. They are special. Those are the kind of people who make you realize that everlasting love can come from someone other than a significant other. Those are the people that show you what “through thick and thin” truly means. Platonic love is just as important as relationship love.

Why do we do the things that are the worst for us? Getting stuck in bad habits, talking to toxic people. I don't know how to stop. I really want to but I don't know any other way to do things. It seems simple when I think about it but it's so easy to fall back to who I used to be (who I still am).

creatures of habit. it’s just easy. it’s comfortable. it’s what we know. we’re not good at challenging ourselves, it seems, when it comes to very personal and down to the core changes. you can commit to it. it is possible. and you owe it to yourself to do it, don’t you think? think ahead of now. think about the life you’re going to have if you live the way you deserve, if you treat yourself the way you to deserve, if you set the boundaries for how others treat you. it is up to you. just because it is hard doesn’t mean it isn’t simple. it can be both of those things.

May 2017 be the year you stop standing in the doorway, and actually find the courage to take steps across the threshold into the happiness you so rightfully deserve to exist in. to live in. all the time, not some of the time. all the time.

The sun
  • Chris: you know my dick has a lot in common with the sun
  • Victor: why? Because nobody likes to look directly at it?
  • Yuuri: because it gives people cancer?
  • Phichit: it rises at the crack of dawn?
  • Michele: it disappears at night?
  • Seung: direct exposure to it often leads to nasty sunburns?
  • Yurio: it needs to stay approximately 92,960,000 miles away from me?
  • Otabek: nobody will ever touch it?
  • Chris: gee thanks you guys! You're all such supportive friends!
  • Victor: we try
  • Everyone: *grunting in agreement*
Suddenly you’re 21 and even though three years ago you swore to yourself you’d have everything figured out at this age it’s not the case. At all. You still cry your heart out over boys who do not deserve a single one of your tears, you still struggle to let go of things and people you told yourself you were done with. You don’t speak up for yourself or people who deserve it. You live in the background even though you’ve been fighting for it to change. Life passes you by and you’re never in control - you’re always stuck in the passenger seat. You told yourself “I’ll be happy in a year’s time” but you’re not. Happiness is always something that waits around the corner for you, but you’re never fast enough to catch it and close your fingers around it so it doesn’t escape. You don’t know what your life will be like in another three years, you have absolutely no idea, and it scares you senseless, not knowing where you’re going, where you want to be. It’s like you’re walking with a blindfold covering your eyes.
You know what? It’s not too late to get your life together. It’s not too late to write that letter, to send that application, to say goodbye to the people who do you no good and to be who you want to be, whether you’re 15 or 21 or 45.

In two days, two black people, James Means and Will Sims, have been killed for being black by white supremacists. But these murders went unnoticed due to Thanksgiving and Black Friday, and this is very sad.

Sending all my love to the families of these victims. Y'all don’t deserve this. We will fight for you because we love you.

The lives of James Means and Will Sims mattered. Their lives had inherent value and worth.

Positive thinking is everything. When you believe you can do it, the how to do it develops. You are a product of your thoughts. You are a product of your environment. If you want greatness. Believe you deserve it. Act like you deserve it. Live like you are great- and you will attract greatness.

I hope you end up living the life of your dreams. I hope you wake up every morning with a fire in your soul that you won’t ever let anyone put out. & I hope when you lay your head down to sleep at night, instead of crying yourself to sleep, you will finally be the kind of happy you always wished you could be.

Pssst, Fictionkin:

Want to know what makes me happy?

Somewhere out there, my favorite fictional characters, especially the ones who’s lives weren’t what they wanted them to be, are getting another chance.

Maybe they’re shopping.

Maybe they’re watching silly youtube videos.

Maybe they’re laughing with friends, or playing a favorite game, or driving to work, or making dinner.

So wherever you are, fictionkin, whatever you’re doing, just know that you’re what everyone hoped for, a new chance for the character that they love!
