The Best Way To Run Into Traffic

It does not count if you believe in yourself when it's easy to believe in yourself. It does not count if you believe the world can be a better place when the future looks bright. It does not count if you think you're going to make it when the finish line is right in front of you.

It counts when it's hard to believe in yourself, when it looks like the world's going to end and you've still got a long way to go.

That's when it counts. That's when it matters the most.

I found this by chance just now and I can't tell you how much I needed to see this today. This is the first scrap of light I've had on an otherwise bleak day. Thank you.

You're the stranger with the most beautiful heart.

Thank you, always. For every single line.

I wanna tell you something: I write diaries with paint and kisses and blood and pictures and glitter, and I give them to people.

If I end up quoting you in my recent one, I want to make it big and bold so that whoever is going to read it will remember.

Today is the four-year anniversary of my ex-boyfriend's suicide. This entry explains my own reasons for living better than anything I've ever come up with on my own. Thank you. I needed this - especially today.

thanks for saying outloud what I want to say. I'm too coward to say that... it annoys me so much that a lot of people tell to be optimist, positive when they're not damage at all!

Thank you so much for these words.
They gave me a little,
very little unfortunately,
hope.
If hope exists anyway...

Through the vine of links from one great thing onto the next, I stumble upon your blog. The sense of belonging renders me speechless.

Thank. You.
