To think in terms of either pessimism or optimism oversimplifies the truth. The problem is to see reality as it is.
―  Thích Nhất Hạnh (via purplebuddhaproject)
In modern society most of us don’t want to be in touch with ourselves; we want to be in touch with other things like religion, sports, politics, a book - we want to forget ourselves. Anytime we have leisure, we want to invite something else to enter us, opening ourselves to the television and telling the television to come and colonize us.
―  Thích Nhất Hạnh (via purplebuddhaproject)
Don’t promise when you’re happy,
Don’t reply when you’re angry and
Don’t decide when you’re sad.
― athea (via invhale )
I act and react, and suddenly I wonder, ‘Where is the girl that I was last year? Two years ago? What would she think of me now?’
― Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals  (via kein-08-15)

I think it’s very healthy to spend time alone. You need to know how to be alone and not be defined by another person.

There’s a brief moment when you first wake up where you have no memories, a blissful blank slate, a happy emptiness, but it doesn’t last long and you remember exactly where you are and what you are trying to forget.

You have
galaxies inside your head.
Stop letting people
tell you
you cannot shine.
