"I love you. All of you. Not just the parts that are pretty, or sweet, or nice. I love your bitterness. I love your jagged edges. I love the scar left by your heartbreak. I love everything about you."
Penzima, from Encanta (via h-o-r-n-g-r-y)
"I still get very high and very low in life. Daily. But I’ve finally accepted the fact that sensitive is just how I was made, that I don’t have to hide it and I don’t have to fix it. I’m not broken."
If your boyfriend tells you to lose weight, you should absolutely do as he says. Drop 150 pounds instantly by dumping his stupid ass and then go eat a pizza like the beautiful bitch you are
"Does he treat you with respect at all times? That’s the first question. The second question is, if he is the exact same person twenty years from now that he is today, would you still want to marry him? And finally, does he inspire to be a better person? You find someone you can answer yes to all three, then you’ve found a good man."
Colleen Hoover, Slammed (via simply-quotes)
If I Could Explain Mental Illness….
If I could explain mental illness it would go something like this:
it’s not something you do to get attention
and it’s not feeling just a little bit sad
"it’s all in your head"- yeah, it is but it takes control of your body
it’s not getting out of bed for days
but dragging yourself out because you can’t call into work depressed
it’s hoping that nobody talks to you because you might start crying
but wanting someone to see how badly you’re hurting
it’s not hurting, it’s not feeling at all
you could kill yourself, but what would that do to your family?
who would have to find your body?
it’s months of doctors appointments with multiple psychiatrists
it’s thousands of dollars of medical bills because insurance sucks
it’s not doing your laundry
it’s not showering
it’s not being able to find the right medication
"you rely too much on the medication"
if I didn’t take this medication I wouldn’t be functional
that’s all the doctors want- is functional
not happy or elated, just functional
it’s the fear of relapse every day
wondering if it is just a bad mood or if you’re falling back into a black hole
a fear of everything
why are you picking at your lip? your nails?
chest pains, random panic attacks
not being able to sleep because you’re already worried about tomorrow
you have bills but you can’t pay them so you ignore them
mental illness is a battle everyday- even on meds
getting out of bed is still a struggle
trying to put on jewelry or makeup with the shakes
remembering to take your meds because you’re having a good day
if i could explain it, it’d go something like that.

"I do not need to get used to your silence. I already know it. I quite possibly love all of it."
