"Today I want to remind you that your past doesn’t define you, your failures don’t define you, your circumstances don’t define you. As a child of the Most High God, you are royalty, and His Word is what defines you!"
Cathe Laurie (via buhaybabae)

buhaybabae:

It wasn’t when you smile during the good times, it was when all you were having are dark days and yet your heart still shined.

1. If he doesn’t answer, don’t keep sending texts. If he wanted to talk to you, he would’ve responded.

2. People will make time for you when they care about you. If he says he’s too busy or constantly cancels his plans, he doesn’t care. People fight for you when they care.

3. Don’t let him touch you on the first date. If he tries, he’s not there for the same reasons you are.

4. You can tell a lot about a person by their favorite book.

5. If he can stomach more than ten straight shots without feeling a thing, he drinks too much.

6. Ask the uncomfortable things. When was the last time he was so high he couldn’t speak? What does he regret the most? Does he drink to remember or to forget?

7. Don’t send pictures unless you want to. If he has to talk you into it, don’t do it. If you hesitate, don’t do it. If you do take a picture, don’t include your face. Keep yourself safe.

8. If you can’t laugh when you’re having sex with him, maybe you aren’t sleeping with the right person. Sex isn’t about tricks and tips and routines.

9. If he hurts you, cut him out. He’s gone, he isn’t coming back, and you don’t need to prolong the pain.

10. Don’t be afraid to open up again. I promise not everyone will love you with a knife behind their back.

"I don’t think people understand how stressful it is to explain what’s going on in your head when you don’t even understand it yourself."

"

You remember too much,

my mother said to me recently.

Why hold onto all that?

And I said,

Where do I put it down?

We can never please everybody. People will judge us. Some will belittle our capabilities. Let’s face it. That’s life. We just have to go with the flow and take every hurting life may bring.
