“Just because you’re beautiful doesn’t mean you don’t do ugly things. Just because you’re not pretty doesn’t mean you don’t have the beauty of a flower. Just because you’re loud doesn’t mean you hate silences. Just because you’re quiet doesn’t mean you have nothing to say. Just because people see you happy all the time doesn’t mean you never cry yourself to sleep. Just because you are unhappy doesn’t mean you can never be happy again. Just because you think it’ll never happen, it just might.”—(via eletheowl)
I want it that way - Backstreet Boys. Mommy was singing it.
My dad was complaining about everything like he always does and i started singing “someday, we’ll be, living in a big old city, and all He’ll ever gonna be is mean.” -Taylor Swift. I made my brother SMIRK. (:
…from the few who we have grown to know, grown to thoroughly understand, grown to care about? Is it our dependency on them? Our lack of trust in them— trust that they will make the right decisions for themselves, trust that they are living fully and conscientiously, trust that they are loyal to you and honest with you? Are we afraid of losing the comfort and familiarity we find in being with them? Is it an intuitive sense we have that entangles us to these people that are in our lives?
Whatever the reason, distance often causes friction and much doubt in our precious relationships and companionships. The challenge for us as human beings is the willingness to get past the little misunderstandings and the fact that those people cannot be present every moment of our lives— we must understand that they have obligations and errands to fulfill just as you do. Besides, once you are reunited with them, you will remember how annoying or shallow or short-tempered they can be sometimes, and they may remember something negative about us as well (we are all human beings!). Being with somebody every second of his or her life would become dull, because then we would get to know that person SO well that there may not be anything left to talk about or share anymore. Time away from those we keep dear to our hearts give us the opportunity to have a few new experiences, little or big, it doesn’t matter; we will have something fresh or interesting or funny to share with them, and vice versa.
