“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, gaiety and life to everything. It is the essence of order, and leads to all that is god, just, and beautiful, of which it is the invisible, but never less, dazzaling, passionate, and eternal form.”—Plato
“When you remember me, it means that you have carried something of who I am with you, that I have left some mark of who I am on who you are. It means that you can summon me back to your mind even though countless years and miles may stand between us. It means that if we meet again, you will know me. It means that even after I die, you can still see my face and hear my voice and speak to me in your heart.”—Frederick Buechner (via bitchville)
You are tired today, aren’t you? You are tired of holding up the whole wide world, tired of being so darn tough, tired of being tested in every which way, tired of passing the tests only to be given another one.
It’s okay for you to have days like this. IT REALLY IS OKAY. YOU ARE OKAY. LIFE IS OKAY. And everything is going to turn out okay.
Everything is going to be okay, dear girl. It really is. You are going to make it. Please get some rest, take care of yourself, and keep your spirits up. Keep your eyes on the end goal and try your hardest to be patient with life’s lessons. You are so wise. Remember that good people have bad days sometimes. Smart people do dumb things sometimes. Bad things happen to good people sometimes. And still, everything is going to be okay.
Breathe in. Breathe out. Take a hot bath. Listen to your favorite music. And TRUST. And then keep trusting.
9960) You would know that tonight when you went to the hardware store with me to buy rope for an art project of mine, it wasn't for school. If you really knew me you would know it's for the noose I am going to make tonight and you were the last friend to see me alive.
I almost cried reading this. Please GOD, let this person be happy where ever they may be.
To whoever wrote this, if they expected their friend to read their mind then they were being incredibly selfish. Instead of leaving a post about a rope they could have reached out to this friend who took the time to go to a hardware store with them, and tried talking instead. People can only be there for you if you let them be.
P.S. It has been 5 years since I cut my wrist. I did get help. From professionals, family and friends. It was not easy but it is possible.
“There’s only so many times you can allow someone to let you down before you can’t handle the disappointment anymore. When things change, people change. There’s a point in life where you get tired of chasing everyone trying to fix things, but it’s not giving up, you’ve got to do what’s right for you, even if it hurts.”—(via raindropsonredroses)
