“The years between eighteen and twenty-eight are the hardest, psychologically. It’s then you realize this is make or break, you no longer have the excuse of youth, and it is time to become an adult – but you are not ready.”—Helen Mirren (via skeletales)
“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”—Unknown (via aurelle)
I can’t figure out how I feel about anything anymore.
Its like everything I was so sure about has just turned into one big I don’t know. I push people away, I know when i’m doing it, but I can’t stop myself. I get myself in situations with people then have to try not to hurt them when I realise its not what I want. I can’t stay focused on one thing for long. Theres nothing in this city, I need to get out of here.
I try not to push people away, but its always too late to fix it. I try to avoid those situations, but I can’t resist being needed. I try to stay focused, but in the back of my mind I know I won’t so I give in.
“When you start to really know someone, all their physical characteristics start to disappear. You begin to dwell in their energy, recognize the scent of their skin. You see only the essence of the person, not the shell. That’s why you can’t fall in love with beauty. You can lust after it, be infatuated by it, want to own it. You can love it with your eyes and body but not your heart. And that’s why, when you really connect with a person’s inner self, any physical imperfections disappear, become irrelevant.”—Lisa Unger (via dangnikki)
