"When we love ourselves, we naturally shine, we are naturally beautiful. And that draws others to us. Before we know it, they’re loving us and it’s up to us to choose who to share our love with."
-Kamal Ravikant (via angelofgaia)
"Behind my carefully buttoned collar is my nakedness, the struggle to find clean clothes, food, meaning, and money. Behind sex is rage, behind anger is love, behind this moment is silence, years of silence."
-Dorothy Allison (via kushandwizdom)
"One day, whether you
you will stumble upon
someone who will start
a fire in you that cannot die.
However, the saddest,
most awful truth
you will ever come to find––
is they are not always
with whom we spend our lives."
-Beau Taplin, "The Awful Truth" (via nofatnowhip)
"Don’t ever compliment me by insulting other women. That’s not a compliment, it’s a competition none of us agreed to."
