My mom was lecturing me about our lack of a relationship and about how I’m a bad kid. And she said that our relationship would never change unless I did; that I was to blame for our failed relationship. I’m just sad because in that moment I realized she’ll never change. She’s become corrupt and will never change. She’d rather blame her own child for her mistakes than accept responsibility for her actions. In that moment I gave up just a little more hope that things could be better.
“People are afraid to pursue their most important dreams, because they feel that they don’t deserve them, or that they’ll be unable to achieve them. We, their hearts, become fearful just thinking of loved ones who go away forever, or of moments that could have been good but weren’t, or of treasures that might have been found but were forever hidden in the sands. Because, when these things happen, we suffer terribly.”—Paulo Coelho (via julielauber)
“I do not care what car you drive. Where you live. If you know someone who knows someone who knows someone. If your clothes are this years cutting edge. If your trust fund is unlimited. If you are A-list B-List or never-heard-of-you-list. I only care about the words that flutter from your mind. They are the only thing you truly own. The only thing I will remember you by. I will not fall in love with your bones and skin. I will not fall in love with the places you have been. I will not fall in love with anything but the words that flutter from your extraordinary mind.”—“Extraordinary Mind” by Andre Jordan
