The purpose of psychology is to give us a completely different idea of the things we know best.
― Paul Valéry (via psych-quotes)
If everyone had the luxury to pursue a life of exactly what they love, we would all be ranked as visionary and brilliant. … If you got to spend every day of your life doing what you love, you can’t help but be the best in the world at that. And you get to smile every day for doing so. And you’ll be working at it almost to the exclusion of personal hygiene, and your friends are knocking on your door, saying, “Don’t you need a vacation?!,” and you don’t even know what the word “vacation” means because what you’re doing is what you want to do and a vacation from that is anything but a vacation — that’s the state of mind of somebody who’s doing what others might call visionary and brilliant.

Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it’s always your choice.
Wayne Dyer (via creatingaquietmind)
Stop faking your fucking orgasms. Society already tells young men that they run the fucking universe - if they can’t turn your cunt into a shooting star then for god’s sake, let them know about it.

I think the greatest thing you ever taught me, is that you can give so much of yourself to someone, and it still won’t be enough. And I am sorry, that I was not enough.

I’m lost. And it’s my own fault. It’s about time I figured out that I can’t ask people to keep me found.
