“You know, ever since I first met him, I always thought, ‘Man, I hope I don’t mess this up.’ Because that’s what I do. I mess things up. But you know what I never thought? I never thought ‘I hope this doesn’t mess me up’.”—(via dragon-song)
my social studies teacher once told us “human beings are the most selfish of all. even when someone dies, you shed tears only because they are no more around to provide you with whatever they had been for so long”
and it has been 3 years since she said this and this is still what i think about at night
To me, songs are kind of like bookmarks. Have you ever listened to a song that you haven’t heard in a while, and all of a sudden, all the memories of that time period come back, and you remember what your life used to be like. They’re like milestones in your life.
Do you even care about me the way I care about you? Do you even like me the way I like you? Do you even miss me the way I miss you? I’m so tired of over thinking thing’s just tell me how you feel straight up I don’t even care if the truth hurts me in the end I just want to know what your thinking i’m so tired of assuming thing’s and trying to figure out what your thinking.
has it ever occurred to you that you could change your life right this second if you really wanted to? you could stand up and yell at your teacher if you wanted to, you could place yourself in a life or death situation if you wanted, you could even take that risk and just spontaneously and passionately kiss the one you really love by surprise. you could change the entire outcome of our lives, and if our lives are really as bad as we say they are, why won’t we take those chances.
I love those type of friendships that don’t require a lot of effort. We may not see each other as much as we want to or talk as much as we used to, but it doesn’t change the fact that we’re friends no matter what. They can do their own thing and I can do my own thing. What’s important is that whenever we do see each other again, we can pick up right from where we left off without making it awkward. Any friendship that works out like that is a friendship worth having.
