But the garderer knows. And he will mend it. And that is sufficient.
Never allow loneliness to drive you into the arms of someone you know you don’t belong with.
To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you.

You can’t just make me different, and then leave.
Your life does not need to be solely for the purpose of finding a boyfriend and feeling fat.

Marry someone who lets you have a bite of their brownie, even when you said you weren’t hungry. Marry someone who laughs at the same things you do. Marry someone who kisses your nose on a cold day. Marry someone who you can watch Disney movies with. Marry someone who is proud of you whether you earn £5 a week or £5,000 a week. Marry someone who you can tell everything to. Marry someone who isn’t afraid or embarrassed to hold your hand in public. Marry someone who lets you take over when decorating a cake. Marry someone who you can spend the day in Ikea with without feeling stressed. Marry someone who wraps you up inside their coat in the winter. Marry someone who accepts your fears and phobias. Marry someone who gives you butterflies every time you hear their key in the door. Marry someone who you don’t always have to shave your legs for. Marry someone who accepts you all day every day, even when you don’t look or feel your best. Marry someone who puts three sugars in your tea, despite telling them “just the two”. Marry someone who doesn’t judge you when you eat your body weight in cookies. Marry someone who doesn’t make you want to check your phone, because you know they will reply. Marry someone who waits with you to get on the train. Marry someone who understands that you need to be alone sometimes. Marry someone who gets on well with your parents and isn’t uptight about family events. Marry someone who calms you down when you get mad about stupid stuff, and never tells you it’s “only stupid stuff”. Marry someone who makes you want to be a better person. Marry someone who makes you laugh. Marry someone who you love. Marry your soulmate, your lover, your best friend.

good reasons to insult your child:
- don’t fucking do that
- not even jokingly
- don’t insult anyone
- especially not your own fucking child
- do not make your child feel like shit about themselves ok
Give. Even when you know you can get nothing back.
it makes me really sad when people have bad teachers because then you get people who are like “god i hate physics so much” but it’s because nobody’s explaining it well and they don’t get it. like they could have become passionate about physics but instead they shut it out forever. this applies to every subject.
