Life is filled with unanswered questions, but it is the courage to seek those answers that continues to give meaning to life. You can spend your life wallowing in despair, wondering why you were the one who was led towards the road strewn with pain, or you can be grateful that you are strong enough to survive it.
J.D. Stroube, Caged by Damnation (via observando)
Do not fall in love with people like me.
I will take you to museums, and parks, and monuments, and kiss you in every beautiful place, so that you can never go back to them without tasting me like blood in your mouth.
I will destroy you in the most beautiful way possible. And when I leave you will finally understand, why storms are named after people.

Literary Sexts: A Collection of Short & Sexy Love Poems (via evamayha)

There are three questions every woman should be able to answer yes to before they commit to a man. If you answer no to any of the three questions, run like hell.

Does he treat you with respect at all times? That’s the first question. The second question is, if he is the exact same person twenty years from now that he is today, would you still want to marry him? And finally, does he inspire to be a better person? You find someone you can answer yes to all three, then you’ve found a good man.

Dear Future Children,

Learn that love is about freedom. It is not about obligation or entitlement. Don’t ever try to force someone to share anything of theirs with you. Not their time, space, or body because love should be about choice. Your lover should choose to share with you. It is ok to want these things, but I urge you to find one with whom you can share healthy and safe spaces and one who also chooses to give you the things you want. Love is freedom. Love is healthy.
