“All this essentially amounts to the fact I’m nervous to get into any situation where I’ll be stuck for the rest of my life. I think that’s the problem with us 20-somethings. No matter what job we get or relationship we embark upon, the practice of doing the same thing every day is a form of monotony we’re not easily accustomed to, and the thought of it continuing on forever creates terror in our liberated souls. We just finally became independent, after all; to hell with walls and cable bills.”

If Anything Hurts by Marla Miniano
at some point a stranger or perhaps a friend you once
let drift away will tell you to stop caring so much,
as if caring were a disease that needs to be cured, or
a workman’s machine you can switch on and off as you
please. don’t be so quick to agree. say your heart has
no dial to turn from left to right; say your heart did
not come with a remote control, did not even come with
an instruction manual or the number of a helpline you
can call when it isn’t functioning the way it should.
tell the truth: that sometimes you are nothing more
than skin and sweat and sinew, and sometimes you are
so much. tell the other truth, the bigger one: that no
one——not with our breath and veins and the songs that
keep us up at night——was meant to temper the swirling
and shifting within, that no one was ever born to love
“that no one was ever born to love moderately.” This is beautiful.

“The relationship you have with the world is just like any other relationship. Every now and again, even if it’s pissed you off for no good reason, you have to look it in the eyes and say: I love you.”

“Please know there are much better things in life than being lonely or liked or bitter or mean or self-conscious.
We are all full of shit.
Go love someone just because, I know your heart may be badly bruised, or even the victim of numerous knifings, but it will always heal, even if you don’t want it to; it keeps going.
There are the most fantastic, beautiful things and people out there,
It is up to you to find them.”
— Chuck Palahniuk (via fakeville)
