“I’m a paradox. I want to be happy, but I think of things that make me sad. I’m lazy, yet I’m ambitious. I don’t like myself, but I also love who I am. I say I don’t care, but I really do. I crave attention, but reject it when it comes my way. I’m a conflicted contradiction. If I can’t figure myself out, there’s no way anyone else has.”—unknown (via imperfezione-follia)
“Don’t tell me that you love me, because anyone can tell me that. Tell me that I make you tear up with anger and frustration, but at the end of the day you still want to lay down next to me, put your arms around me, and sleep.”—(via sixpenceee)
No one is a perfect communicator, especially when our emotions are involved. It’s easy to say the wrong thing, take something the wrong way, or make assumptions that can quickly lead to disagreements and hurt feelings. Here are 10 of the top…
“when the sleazy man on the bus smirks at you
do not smile back
ignore him and look out of the window.
when the man in the shadow of midnight tells you he
will not hurt you
do not believe him
when a man at the party offers you the drink in his hand
do not accept it
say you are capable of getting your own.
when the man at the dressing room
says you need a bigger size
do not take his advice
buy the dress.
when the man at the supermarket
offers you a lift home
do not get in his car
go back inside the supermarket
and get security to walk you out.
when the drunk man on the street
whistles at you
do not take it as a compliment
you are not a dog
when the man with the blue eyes
you just met at the bar
asks you to come back to his apartment
do not accept the offer
you are not a rent for the night.
when the man you have known for 2 years
calls you beautiful at 1am
with dried tears and smudged makeup on your cheeks
do not let him go
marry him.”—A little reminder I wrote to every girl out there (via vipeur)
