»"I… I'm sorry," he said. "I don't mean to… to be like I am."«
(Samwell Tarly in "A Game of Thrones" by George R.R. Martin)
"But she ain't running / She's walking a little slow / And she ain't crying - she's just singing a little low" - Rickie Lee Jones
"The definition of / A crazy person is / Someone who does the same thing over / And over again / While expecting new results" - Regina Spektor
I am a positive person but I get really tired of aggressive optimism. If someone’s sad, let them be sad. All emotions have purpose. Sadness isn’t destructive if not prolonged. Sadness isn’t unproductive, as it offers awareness. Telling someone to “cheer up” or “be happy” is so ineffective and patronizing. The last thing a sad person needs is for someone to judge their feelings as pointless and unappealing. Welcome sadness, just don’t let it consume you.
(still having trouble with that last part, i guess)
“How does Dylan O’Brien style his hair?” “I understand that his last name is pronounced ‘Hecklin’ but I’m gonna continue saying ‘Hoechillin’.” “Scott is an Alpha now… I’m so proud!” “I don’t have a problem!” "Hello darkness my old friend" "Hale family interactions!"
"This week on ‘Who will Isaac Lahey have sexual tension with?’… [spins wheel] Yes, ladies and gentlemen, for the sixth week in a row it’s everyone!"
all the lying around in strange places and crying – YES THIS IS MY LIFE I FEEL UNDERSTOOD
when people try to make me feel bad for listening to one direction i just stare at them blankly because i can’t, and never will, comprehend how or why anyone would want to put me down for having something in my life that brings me happiness without fail every single day
THIS. i’m not in the one direction fandom, but still: no one gets harmed, so why be annoyed or angry or whatever about other peoples’ reason(s) for happiness?
