“Someday, too, I’m sure, I’ll meet myself in a strange place in a far-off world. And if I have anything to say about it, I’d like that place to be a warm one.”—Haruki Murakami, The 1963/1982 Girl from Ipanema (via sukmun)
i wish there wasn’t a stigma about doing things alone. you can’t go out to eat alone, you can’t see a movie alone, basically anything fun, you’re looked down on for doing alone and it’s so stupid you shouldn’t need other people to validate your decisions
stop the world i wanna get off with you // arctic monkeys
well, i know that getting you alone isn’t easy to do and i don’t wanna lie and i don’t wanna tell you the truth and i know we got places to go, we got people to see think we both ought put ‘em on hold and i know you agree
No one will ever know how you truly feel. They might witness a glimpse, but only that and nothing more. There are emotions in you that you won’t ever be able to pull up into words, or even thoughts. At times, you don’t even understand yourself. So how could someone else possibly understand you? But who’s to say that others need to understand you? Is it because you seek the comfort of not feeling alone? Well, in this life you are alone no matter what you might like to believe. We spend a whole life time trying to understand ourselves, and hope that the ones who are close to us understand us as well. But you’ll never know if they truly do. You just have to take on this faith hoping that they do.
“I learned not to trust people; I learned not to believe what they say but to watch what they do; I learned to suspect that anyone and everyone is capable of ‘living a lie’. I came to believe that other people - even when you think you know them well - are ultimately unknowable.”—Lynn Barber, An Education (via bakasuu)
“You’re tired, physically and emotionally.
It’s just one of those nights where it seems like everything is far from your reach. You feel like absolutely nothing matters. No, there’s a small piece of you that knows there are things that matter, but right now, they don’t. You don’t have any effort and energy left to worry about those things at this very moment. Right now, those things don’t exist. Maybe sleep will wash away these feelings. Most likely when you wake up tomorrow, tonight will simply be a blur. But there’s a part of you that knows that this happens much too often. What you feel now is familiar. It’s almost as if it’s natural.”—Dreamongood (via princemacabre)
