just shout out to all the people who are struggling and not even like succeeding and kicking all the asses, but just existing with their issues because that’s what you do, you push when you can and you don’t always push much or at all, but you’re there. and your lives have value just for that and all the amazing and often undercelebrated ways you contribute to the world. tbh on my low days that inspires me more than any big success story or comeback narrative.
Destroy my desires, eradicate my ideals, show me something better, and I will follow you.
Dostoyevsky, Fyodor. Notes from the Underground. (via wordsnquotes)
Darling, I don’t want you; I’ve got no place for you; I only want what you give. I don’t want the whole of anyone…. What you want is the whole of me-isn’t it, isn’t it?-and the whole of me isn’t there for anybody. In that full sense you want me I don’t exist.
Elizabeth Bowen, The Death of the Heart (via feellng)
