"Ainsi sera, groigne qui groigne."
I love to reblog so a lot of the content here is not mine unless otherwise stated.
Nothing is wrong with you. When you craft your behavior according to how you want to be perceived, you are making part of yourself insincere. You are dividing yourself.
It is important to be mindful of the way our actions may be perceived. But it is more important to be total. Don’t look to other people to tell you who you are, whether you are real or fake.
Go inward and see for yourself. It is because you don’t know what your existence really is that you open yourself to being shaken.
Let people feel however they feel. Just be at ease and whole. Forgiveness is a secret to relaxation and peace.

When she is happy, she can’t stop talking, when she is sad she doesn’t say a word.
I don’t want people to matter to me too much. Sometimes it hurts too much to think about them. Ones you love who don’t love you, ones who are dead or hate you, ones who you think about but never get to be with. I like people but when I get too close, it fucks me up and I can’t get things done.
David Levithan, The Lover’s Dictionary
You have to decide right now to be free once and for all. Everyone who has found freedom in this lifetime has had to make this decision. Now is the time to have a direct introduction to this moment. This moment is free of time, of mind, of any notions. When one abides as the Self, some divine power takes charge of one’s life. All actions then take place spontaneously, and are performed very efficiently, without any mental effort or activity.
I often don’t say things out loud, even when I should. I contain and compartmentalize to a disturbing degree: In my belly-basement are hundreds of bottles of rage, despair, fear, but you’d never guess from looking at me.
