“When I get lonely these days, I think: So BE lonely. Learn your way around loneliness. Make a map of it. Sit with it, for once in your life. Welcome to the human experience. But never again use another person’s body or emotions as a scratching post for your own unfulfilled yearnings.”—Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love (via themilkywhiteway)
So I keep dreaming that I can’t see my face. I don’t remember anything else about the dreams except that if I try to look in a mirror or if my perspective changes and I’m looking at myself, I have no face. Or sometimes I’m in my own body and I am just very aware that I don’t have a face—which sometimes makes it difficult (but not impossible) to see. I don’t know why so it’s kind of weirding me out.
“For young women, I would say, don’t worry so much about your weight. Girls spend way too much time thinking about that, and there are better things. For young men, and women, too, what makes you different or weird, that’s your strength. Everyone tries to look a cookie-cutter kind of way, and actually the people who look different are the ones who get picked up. I used to hate my nose. Now, I don’t.”—Meryl Streep [x] (via theashleyclements)
“There are days when I can’t wait to go to bed because I know His mercies are new every morning, and I feel like I’ve almost run out.”—Matt Chandler, Ecclesiastes 12: Reconciliation (via tehtruthresistssimplicity)
