“We swore, to ourselves and to each other, that it was only this. But it’s easy for hands to confuse feeling with feelings. And something tells me there’s a reason we’re closer to our hearts than to our heads.”—A Love Letter From My Hands To Yours - Eliot Rose
“I do not want to fix someone. I’m too busy working on myself. I wouldn’t want to date someone who isn’t doing the same, who doesn’t see the value in growth. I’m not here to hold someone’s hand while they learn how to grow up. I’m not a pre-school teacher; I’m not a therapist. A man is not an art project to be cut up into little pieces and glued back together. You’re your own fixer-upper, honey; do with that what you will.”—On Dating Good Guys - Stephanie Georgopulos (Thought Catalog)
“Fear is epic. Whatever it is that scares you, you’ve simply just got to want it bad enough–bad enough that the pain of NOT moving forward is greater than the pain of taking action.

And then make it yours.”—“Embrace Fear…your dream life awaits you.” (via heyamberrae)

Because if she thinks she’s worth this much then she probably is.
