Fall in love with someone who wants you, who waits for you. Who understands you even in the madness; someone who helps you, and guides you, someone who is your support, your hope. Fall in love with someone who talks with you after a fight. Fall in love with someone who misses you and wants to be with you. Do not fall in love only with a body or with a face; or with the idea of being in love. - (via catsgomao)
I treat myself like I would my daughter. I brush her hair, wash her laundry, tuck her in goodnight. Most importantly, I feed her. I do not punish her. I do not berate her, leave tears staining her face. I do not leave her alone. I know she deserves more.
I know I deserve more. - Michelle K., I Know I Deserve More. (via sadlittlewords)
when the sleazy man on the bus smirks at you
do not smile back
ignore him and look out of the window.
when the man in the shadow of midnight tells you he
will not hurt you
do not believe him
when a man at the party offers you the drink in his hand
do not accept it
say you are capable of getting your own.
when the man at the dressing room
says you need a bigger size
do not take his advice
buy the dress.
when the man at the supermarket
offers you a lift home
do not get in his car
go back inside the supermarket
and get security to walk you out.
when the drunk man on the street
whistles at you
do not take it as a compliment
you are not a dog
when the man with the blue eyes
you just met at the bar
asks you to come back to his apartment
do not accept the offer
you are not a rent for the night.
when the man you have known for 2 years
calls you beautiful at 1am
with dried tears and smudged makeup on your cheeks
do not let him go
marry him. - A little reminder I wrote to every girl out there (via vipeur)
We are the girls with anxiety disorders, filled appointment books, five-year plans. We take ourselves very, very seriously. We are the peacemakers, the do-gooders, the givers, the savers. We are on time, overly prepared, well read, and witty, intellectually curious, always moving… We pride ourselves on getting as little sleep as possible and thrive on self-deprivation. We drink coffee, a lot of it. We are on birth control, Prozac, and multivitamins… We are relentless, judgmental with ourselves, and forgiving to others. We never want to be as passive-aggressive as our mothers, never want to marry men as uninspired as our fathers… We are the daughters of the feminists who said, “You can be anything,” and we heard, “You have to be everything. - Unknown (via thatkindofwoman)
