How hard is it to be honest? To tell the truth in the face of it all? Harder than it seems, maybe. Not what you think it'll be. Yet, I wish people did it more. I wish they weren't so afraid to just let it all out. As they say, the truth hurts but in my experience withholding the truth hurts even more. Stop lying. To myself, to others, to the world. We all need to open our minds to teh truth. We need to accept it and live it and breathe it every day. Forget lies. All they do is hurt. But the truth can set you free even as it hurts you. It's time to change my life. Today. I'm finally going to make my dreams a reality and its the truth that will come with me.

No one has to understand you but you. That's the truth i've come to. Other people see what they want, understand what they can, they try but they're not you. And I don't have to understand other people which is good because I don't really. Sometimes life takes you on a very unexpected journey. and somehow, against all odds, you end up right where you should be and you realize you dont want to leave it. Thats how I feel about the wentworth and my banquets family. And yet, somehow, at the same time I have a hankering to get out into the world, to travel, to live a different life. Thinking about saving up all my money and just taking off on a vacation somewhere far far away. i could change my whole life. But its not that easy really. Maybe its time for tht change and maybe I cant make that leap. I need to search within and find my strength somewhere. I want to be bigger than this, I want my life to be bigger and better than this. I need to believe I can make it happen, that I am strong and confident and smart and that I am worth it. It could all be different. Everything could change. I know who I am, I know where I am and where I want to be and somehow i'm still stuck. stuck loving as much as i can and living the best i can in my miniscule little slice of the world. Really its tiny. I can be who you want me to be except i cant. i can only be myself. i can only be who i want to be. i can only change so much and try so much. its hard. i just need even one thing to change and maybe everything would be different. one moment can turn it all around. I've felt love and i've felt friendship and i've had family and support and pain and suffering and all that a person can feel. But i'm still missing something. All my love has ended except one, and thats one that isnt meant to work out. I need a love that wont end and who knows where i'll find that.

I just wanted you to fuck me but then I got greedy, I wanted you to love me.

Vulnerability is the birthplace of joy, creativity, belonging and love. Let yourself be seen… love with your whole heart… practice gratitude and joy… believe you are enough. -Brene Brown

Listen to the mustn’ts, child. Listen to the don’ts. Listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me… Anything can happen, child. Anything can be. -Shel Silverstein

I want to rip off your logic and make passionate sense to you. I want to ride in the swing of your hips. My fingers will dig in you like quotation marks, blazing your limbs into parts of speech. -Jeffrey McDaniel

I’m not sentimental—I’m as romantic as you are. The idea, you know, is that the sentimental person thinks things will last—the romantic person has a desperate confidence that they won’t. -F. Scott Fitzgerald

Pain is important: how we evade it, how we succumb to it, how we deal with it, how we transcend it. -Audre Lorde

One day I had to sit down with myself and decide that I loved myself no matter what my body looked like and what other people thought about my body. -Gabourey Sidibe

If you know yourself, then you’ll not be harmed by what is said about you. -Arabian proverb

A loving relationship is one in which the loved one is free to be himself – to laugh with me, but never at me; to cry with me, but never because of me; to love life, to love himself, to love being loved. Such a relationship is based upon freedom and can never grow in a jealous heart. -Leo Buscaglia

There’s no such thing as the perfect way to love. We come to love and experience love in ways that work for us; there is no such thing as nice and tidy. We are born with the capacity to love, but make no mistake: love is a skill. It is something we learn to do every day. -Virgie Tovar

Love is space and time measured by the heart. -Marcel Proust

He knew why he wanted to kiss her. Because she was beautiful. And before that, because she was kind. And before that, because she was smart and funny. Because she was exactly the right kind of smart and funny. Because he could imagine taking a long trip with her without ever getting bored. Because whenever he saw something new and interesting, or new and ridiculous, he always wondered what she’d have to say about it, how many stars she’d give it and why. -Rainbow Rowell

Sometimes you meet someone, and it’s so clear so immediately that the two of you, on some level, belong together. As lovers, or as friends, or as family, or as something entirely different. You just work, whether you’re in love or creating things together or foxhole buddies or partners in crime. It’s so clear, right off the bat, that this is what you’re supposed to be doing, that this is what you’re for. You meet these people throughout your life, out of nowhere, under the strangest of circumstances, and they help you make a life. I don’t know if that makes me believe in coincidence, or fate, or sheer blind luck, but. It definitely makes me believe in something.

i want a love that will release me [Jul. 10th, 2012|12:13 am]
There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me, that is the true essence of beauty -Steve Maraboli

Like the way the sun is right now, with the long shadows, and that kind of bright, soft light you get when the sun isn’t quite setting? That’s the light that makes everything better, everything prettier, and today, everything just seemed to be in that light. -John Green, Looking for Alaska

It is by loving, and not by being loved, that one can come nearest the soul of another… -George MacDonald, Phantastes

What we speak becomes the house we live in. -Hafiz

I am lonely, yet not everybody will do. I don’t know why, some people fill the gaps and others emphasize my loneliness. -Anais Nin

The two hardest tests on the spiritual road are the patience to wait for the right moment and the courage not to be disappointed with what we encounter. -Paulo Coelho

I am missing you most in the silence between songs on my favourite records. 
Sometimes it takes so long for the music to start. -Andrea Gibson

As time goes on, you’ll understand. What lasts, lasts; what doesn’t, doesn’t. Time solves most things. And what time can’t solve, you have to solve yourself. -Haruki Murakami, Dance, Dance, Dance

We were together. I forget the rest. -Attributed to Walt Whitman

It was impossible to go back. My eyes filled with tears. I could not stop them from forming. I was certain that she still stood in the doorway watching me as I walked away. The force that keeps me from turning around and going back must be the same that makes her remain standing in the doorway, unable to come after me. -Mohamed Choukri, For Bread Alone

But I must admit I miss you quite terribly. The world is too quiet without you nearby. -Lemony Snicket

There is a certain unique and strange delight about walking down an empty street alone. There is an off-focus light cast by the moon, and the streetlights are part of the spotlight apparatus on a bare stage set up for you to walk through. You get a feeling of being listened to, so you talk aloud, softly, to see how it sounds. -Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

But if you knew you might not be able to see it again tomorrow, everything would suddenly become special and precious, wouldn’t it? -Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

If you’re really listening, if you’re awake to the poignant beauty of the world, your heart breaks regularly. In fact, your heart is made to break; its purpose is to burst open again and again so that it can hold ever-more wonders. -Andrew Harvey, The Return of the Mother

We live through books; we have adventures in them, we lead alternative lives through them. We expand our memories through them. And that sometimes art can offer us more intense experiences of the world than life itself can. -Anthony Doerr

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares. -Henri J.M. Nouwen, The Road to Daybreak: A Spiritual Journey

To define one thing, you usually need a lot of words. Nothing is simple enough to be explained in just one word or one term. I don't know how to sum up my 4 years of college and this whole weird experience except in the way that follows. As a note, my life is in no way defined by guys. These are just the guys who were in my life during my time at BU. And in each stage of my life, with each of these guys, I learned about myself and I changed. So it is not so much about them as it is about who I was at that point in time.

Patrick - first
Albert - best friends
Ray - nothing
Chris - bad ideas
Ben - crazy ride
Jake - someone i care about
Charlie - nothing
Corey - friends i hope

and a little added descriptor about how I feel about each of them now.
