What we know of other people is only our memory of the moments during which we knew them.
― T.S. Eliot, The Cocktail Party (via bbook)
You tried to change, didn’t you? Closed your mouth more, tried to be softer, prettier, less volatile, less awake…You can’t make homes out of human beings. Someone should have already told you that.
You have your whole life ahead of you. Don’t spend all your time in the past.
There were things I wanted to tell him. But I knew they would hurt him. So I buried them, and let them hurt me.
People are dying from over thinking. They fill their brains with harsh thoughts and it brings the body down too. Chances are no one thinks as bad about you than you.
Do not tell everyone your story. You will only end up feeling more rejected. People cannot give you what you long for in your heart. The more you expect from people’s response to your experience of abandonment, the more you will feel exposed to ridicule.
― Henri J. M. Nouwen (via visualcomplex)
I have noticed that if you look carefully at people’s eyes the first five seconds they look at you, the truth of their feelings will shine through for just an instant before it flickers away.
― Sue Monk Kidd, The Secret Life of Bees (via thepaintedbench)
