I was beginning to see, though, that the unknown wasn’t always the greatest thing to fear. The people who know you best can be riskier, because the words they say and the things they think have the potential to be not only scary but true, as well.
Annabel, Just Listen
Sometimes I wish I never had to sleep. Sometimes I think that if I stay very, very still, if I never move at all, things will change. I think if I freeze myself I can freeze the pain. Sometimes I won’t move for hours. I will not move an inch. If time stands still nothing can go wrong.
Juliette, Shatter Me
I keep wondering, how many people do you need to be, before you can become yourself.
I Wrote This For you
People don’t look at your personality first. People judge you automatically by your looks and then try to get to know your personality. But the second they don’t like your looks, they’d rarely make an effort to know you better. That’s how reality is.
I’m getting tired of that phase where you like someone, find out what they’re like, move on and then like someone new. I guess I just want to find that person, “the one” and just settle. Just get to know and love him, all the good and the bad. And maybe, in a few years time, marry that person.
I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons. And maybe we’ll never know most of them. But even though we don’t have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them.
Charlie, The Perks Of Being A Wallflower
I sat. And I thought. And the more I thought, connecting the events in my life, the more my heart collapsed.
Jay Asher, Thirteen Reasons Why
You see, when someone appears in your dream like that, it’s because they really want to see you, and that desire becomes a kind of avatar that visits you while you sleep.

How many times had I let myself connect with someone only to have it thrown back in my face? (Taken with Instagram)
