In an ideal world you should be older than me. You should always have been older than me but you won’t be, soon I’ll be older than you ever were and that is so wrong.
Happy birthday beautiful
I wonder how you spent your last day. Even more than that I wonder if you knew that it was to be your last day.
I don’t know how many more days of fake smiles I have in me. I’m so tired now.
I’m only here because you are.
The hardest period in life is one’s twenties. It’s a shame because you’re your most gorgeous, and you’re physically in peak condition. But it’s actually when you’re most insecure and full of self-doubt. When you don’t know what’s going to happen, it’s frightening.
— Helen Mirren, quoted in Esquire’s “What I’ve Learned” (via psych-facts)
I stay up just late enough until I am just exhausted enough that I can fall into my bed and sink into immediate slumber. Because I can’t stand lying in a bed in a dark room alone with just my thoughts for so many hours and hours.
Nobody is gonna hit you harder than life.
—Tasha ‘Taystee’ Jefferson (Orange Is The New Black)
