My whole life story is basically “I read this book in a few hours and the sequel comes out in a year.”

"It is our own mental attitude which makes the world what it is for us. Our thoughts make things beautiful, our thoughts make things ugly. The whole world is in our own minds. Learn to see things in the proper light."
Swami Vivekananda (via xhromosomes)
There’s too much “I need him, he completes me” and not enough “I complete me yet I want them along for this journey”
Anonymous asked: Hey Mandi how do you tell a boy you like him?
You just leap. Life is too short to wait around. Tell him you like his eyes, clothes, thoughts on music….anything. Don’t hold back, if you like someone…be yourself, and let them see how stunningly wonderful you are.
“I’m not fat, and I’m not skinny. I’m normal! We all have fat, and we all have skin, but that doesn’t mean we need to stereotype anyone. I wanna try something…The next time you want to label someone ‘fat’ or ‘thin,’ just say whoever it is, is beautifully made. But this isn’t just for me, it’s for you girls too. Just saying it once to yourself every morning, ‘I am beautifully made’ can change how we feel about ourselves.”
"Maybe we like the pain. Maybe we’re wired that way. Because without it, I don’t know; maybe we just wouldn’t feel real. What’s that saying? Why do I keep hitting myself with a hammer? Because it feels so good when I stop."

delete the people that make you feel bad about yourself from your life, unfollow them, delete their numbers, erase their texts, find happier people, pet a dog, watch a silly movie, forget about them, you’re better off
"Everyone, at some point in their lives, wakes up in the middle of the night with the feeling that they are all alone in the world, and that nobody loves them now and that nobody will ever love them, and that they will never have a decent night’s sleep again and will spend their lives wandering blearily around a loveless landscape, hoping desperately that their circumstances will improve, but suspecting, in their heart of hearts, that they will remain unloved forever."
Lemony Snicket (via onlinecounsellingcollege)
