"When I was young, I had a little friend; and one day, when other little friends were invited to a festivity, I said: 'Look here! You hide behind this curtain, and then nobody will know where you are.''But,' said my little friend, 'nobody cares!'

The pitiful experience indicated by this remark has remained with me, and I have frequently thought that when we are prepared to jump out from behind our curtain and surprise people with our opinions, we should be warned by my small friend's pathetic conclusion.

However, we never profit by other people's experience, so here I am" (Sothern, 1916, preface).

 

I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life..

Being completely broken is something that is necessary for God to change you. Yeah, it hurts a lot… But in the morning it will be so worth it. It’s something you would never sign up for, but also something you would never take back.

Sheila Walsh (via tlrblair)

this is where I’m at.

Played 549 times

Clawing at my chest
Looking for some sort of reprieve
I swear this isn’t the end
But when will I feel comfortable in my own skin?
